so what!
hasn't everything already been done?
No. Not even close. Art is infinite.

why photograph a sunset? it's been done
Not the one I saw last night - or will see tonight. They are all different.

why photograph a beautiful woman? it's been done
Not ALL beautiful women have been photographed - and not by me - and not in every way possible.

why discuss an issue that has already been addressed? by who? when? maybe i want up to date feedback on the issue
To learn. To 'see' through the eyes and "being" of someone else. *VERY* little of that has "been done".

why endlessly discuss stuff that tries to second guess issues that highly trained people have already worked out? is that all that is done on this site?
"Highly trained people"??? (not only that, but !!!) ... Who are they? ... and what, specifically, have they "worked out"?

This isn't a matter of "training" -- it is a matter of seeing, of life, of being ... of operating beyond the sense of reality ... Do you honestly think all of that has "been done"?
