    I'm not sure I know what 'justice' you are referring to. Color photographs render what they depict with more verisimilitude than most paintings, which is not to say that I'd prefer a color photograph to a painting of the same scene. And, by its nature, a monochrome photograph is a kind of abstraction of the landscape that doesn't compete with a painting. In what way does photography come up short?

    I used to joke that my sister got the crayons and I got the box...

    Because she became an artist and I... well, I became a mechanically-inclined frustrated artist.

    And in the end I found a way to make art with a box

    Probably just my own attempts at landscape.
