i think you have to go even farther back to maybe the turn of last century
the art nouveau movement, art for arts sake and the yearning for photography
to become painting ... the pictorialist .. (bromoilists and others) created photographs
that had blur and motion and grain as they transformed their photographs into other things.

i did this one over the summer, and it remained in my camera until yesterday ...
since you aren't able to get into the gallery here ... ( and a tip of the hat to bill b )
