So yesterday we went to see some friends in the Yorkshire countryside. They have some wonderful views over a valley from their back garden (unfortunately the weather wasn't at it's optimum to allow me to try getting any decent landscapes). Luckily at one point a group of sheep in the farmer's field next to the house decided to wander over to say hello and I managed to fire of some snaps like this one:

It's a nice picture but it's just a sheep. Not much more to be said really, so I decided to try jazzing it up a bit in photoshop.

Funnily enough my wife and I had the same idea about what should be done with the image completely independently. Great minds and all that...

Kinda reminds me of Andy Warhol back in the day of Frank Zappa.... I like it! I bet my Moon-Unit Buddy Bakeys likes it too.

Yeah the more I think about this image the more I like it. Alright it is a bit of silliness, but I named this image after Dolly the sheep. Dolly the sheep was the first cloned mammal, produced by a Scottish science lab (so named after Dolly Parton, a tribute derived from the mammary gland cell used in the cloning process). Subsequently she has become the worlds most famous sheep.

As I cloned this sheep 3 times to create the final image, I figured the name was appropriate. It was only later I realised there is another level to this image. Not only was it science and technology that have enabled me to duplicate (and name) this sheep, in doing so I have also cloned Art (by plagiarising Andy Warhol's pop art style). We are all so heavily influenced by other images or artists work that there has become a fine line between what is our own work and what is copied from others. Throughout art history artists have been so heavily influenced by other artists, or even just plain copied their style or work directly to help develop their own masterpieces.

Anyway, I'm not proposing for one minute this is some kind of masterpiece; just something to think about...

This is good stuff, TimmyG. Never knew that Dolly Parton reference. I wasn't even gonna come on here tonight, then I stumble upon your brief but poignant essay. I love the layers you discovered and reported, and how you realized "only then"; not that you planned it that way, but you discovered after the fact that you had been involved in it. That's an amazing thing when it happens.

This interdependence you have seen and are expressing is indeed something to think about! And maybe it even transcends art. But art may be where it can begin to become evident. So, ya, TimmyG, I'm really glad now that I put forth the extra energy not to just go to bed early.

As for silliness, maybe that's where it begins.

Might as well be ;)

Thanks guys and particularly CJ. I believe he stated early on he was hoping to explore the emotions or ideas spawned by the images posted, so I have been spending some time (perhaps too much!) thinking about these aspects of photography (not just the technicalities which was why I originally signed up to LC). This is, in fact, contributing to my learning experience, and is also good fun, so thanks CJ!
