Did he really say that?

The kind of humor I like is the thing that makes me laugh for five seconds and think for ten minutes = GEORGE CARLIN...Stained glass, engraved glass, frosted glass–give me plain glass = JOHN FOWLES...Music is the mathematics of the gods = PYTHAGORAS...Nothing is more fluid than language = R.L.SWIHART

A "Headless" Vivian Maier

This Vivian Maier photograph would have less impact
If she hadn't cropped the child's head.


Because then I would see everything including whoever and whatever
Is the reason "Mother" is oblivious to "daughter."
I would not need my imagination
If the uncropped details provided a complete story.

Imagination is a welcome wagon to the world of art
But there are other means of transport to that wonderful world.

The title of the photograph is Untitled but your imagination
is free to think otherwise.

The next Vivian Maier page is  here.

A shout-out to ART DAILY © for providing
cyber-transport to the second hyperlink on this page.
But the "Vivian Maier" link leads to other headless photographs

All opinions expressed herein are subject to debate
(Which is the true beauty of the thing
in a civilized society)
