Bastrop, Texas: Are photographs art?

The question above was overheard in casual conversation during the First Friday event in Bastrop last evening.

“The First Friday Art Walk is a monthly event held in downtown Bastrop on the first Friday of every month to celebrate Bastrop’s thriving art scene.” [*]

The original paintings, photographs, sculptures and furnishings offered for sale match just about any potential buyer’s taste and price to the benefit of local artists who create them.

Various other shops, restaurants and eateries are open late as well.

Consider stepping out next month and visiting. It is a fun and enjoyable evening.

As for the question posed above it is open to endless debate.

So take a look at the accompanying image I recently took and ask yourself, is it art or a photograph?

And please know that except for web sizing it is original – taken in real time – and has not been altered in any way.
