Photos to Paintings

Visual history was only recorded mainly by painting before the photograph back in the early 1800’s like canvas paintings, frescoes, wall paintings – bas-relief or sculptures for example, but then the first photograph changed everything as far as the way history could be conveyed to future generations.

Not All In The Mind

Could it be that we create our own world through our perceptions and our responses to our surroundings? It has been said that one has complete control over the world and one’s own life when one completely accepts what is going on without fighting it or judging or feeling that it should be different in some way.
