" There is one spectacle grander than the sea, that is the sky; there is one spectacle grander than the sky, that is the interior of the soul.Victor Hugo ''
The ''SEE YOUR SEA COLLECTION'' is here, on our virtual, online gallery exhibition, and is waiting for your creative criticism, to make us all better in our creativity.
I was not going to share it with you, so soon, I am still waiting for more members to participate, and they still can (their work will be included in this list ), but all this talk about OS going to close us the door to our own work, made me furious, angry, and many more.
I think that this GALLERY CHALLENGE, since being the first made by and for all of us with a passion, and a living with and through photography is much needed , and I only wish, many more could participate, so as to make it our own creative tradition. The authors and the photographers, are :
1-Lschmoopie - MY SEA
2-Nilesite- SEE MY SEAS
3-Sweetfeet- SEEING MY SEA
4-Little Kate - SUNSHINE AND THE SEA
5-Olga Stathi - SEE MY MELANCHOLIC SEA

11-Stathi Stathi- SEE YOUR SEA
Through this collection, one can understand photographs as a true visual poetry, and see with other eyes, the thought as already seen '' sea''. Most of the artworks, are accompanied by poetry full of images, feelings and creative thinking, and they all travel us to seas never known, from the one part of the world to another. As Ansel Adams, has said,
“Some photographers take reality...and impose the domination of their own thought and spirit. Others come before reality more tenderly and a photograph to them is an instrument of love and revelation.”
The ''SEE YOUR SEA'' challenge is still here, and is waiting for all of your seas to be seen. You can still participate, and give us all a change to travel in your seas of thinking, feeling and seeing.
A heartful and true thank you to all those who participated, and make this GALLERY CHALLENGE, an existing wannabe art tradition.
Thank you all for your time and interest,
Best wishes to all.
