Moon & Art Quiz

Took this picture of the clouded-over moon through the pines this evening. Although I have no tripod, I kind of like the artsy way it came out--kind of surreal & ghostly. Speaking of which, here's a bit of fun; "Is it Art or is it Just Plain Old Crap" quiz. I got 13/16, how about you?

I took a few of those surreal and ghostly, half-second-hand-held shots too.

I only got 10 of the art/crap right.

Yep, same as you....I pinched the link to go on my art page, if that's alright! Really like the moon shot...

Hi Dreaming Tree

I am running late this morning, so I don't have time to take the quiz. But I like the photo. I just love seeing the moon any old time. It adds depth to the sometimes empty experience of working in a consumer-driven society.

PS: I'm beefing up my blogroll this weekend. You will be there. It just takes me a while, I'm an old goat.

Marvin; I really do need to get a tripod at some point, though. Still trying to pay off my tranny rebuild at present, though.
10/16's still a pass in my book. ;)

Julie; Thanks & no problem on pinching links, ever.

Crayons; I agree. Charles & I have gotten into the habit of going hiking on full moon nights just to take advantage. We considering taking new moon hikes, too, to see all the stars.
I'm honored you're adding me to your blogroll. Take your time. :)

I GOT 11 OUT OF 16.SHOULD HAVE DONE BETTER BECAUSE I HAD 3 YEARS OF ART IN HIGH SCHOOL. GUESS HIGH SCHOOL DOESN'T REALLY COUNT.ALSO I GRADUATED IN 1968,SO I'VE FORGOTTEN EVERYTHING AND MY GUT FEELING HAS CURLED UP AND DIED. I WAS SURE THE POMPIE(SP?)CORPSE WAS SCULPTURE, DARN IT.

ON A RELATED(DISTANTLY) VEIN, WHEN DOES GRAVE ROBBING BECOME ARCHEOLOGY AND ARCHEOLOGY BECOME ART?

LIKE, YOU CAN'T GO DIGGING UP GRANDPARENTS WITHOUT EXHUMATION COURT ORDERS, BUT YOU CAN DIG UP PRE-CIVIL WAR STUFF BECAUSE IT'S ARCHEOLOGY, AND KING TUT AND SIMILAR STUFF IS SHOWN IN MUSEUMS AS ART.

OBVIOUSLY I HAVE TOO MUCH
FREE TIME IF THIS IS THE KIND OF THING I WONDER ABOUT. I MUST BE DEEPLY DISTURBED. HELP?

Charles; Thanks.

Minus273; Good question (grave robbing v. archaology,) actually. I've sometimes wondered about that, myself. It's a strange & contradictory world we live in, regardless.
