    Brian,

    "Photographer" and "Artist" are independend attributes. This is much like "Photographer" and "Professional". You are a Professional, if you make a living out of it. You are an Artist, if you do have "a higher concept" (IMO).

    This is definitely art. A simple yes or no question generates three pages of responses.

    The answer is "yes."

    So it is with me. I can't consciously "see" art - but I know that it exists, by its effect - the "vapor trails" left on my "being".
    Sounds good.

    So that good feeling we get when we shoot or print is a vapor trail? That would make sense. After all, the feeling itself doesn't exist (materialy). Its all chemical signals in the brain.

    Right?
