This blog features three topics: (i) My work, which drifts back and forth between photography and photography-based art. (ii) Discussions on photography and art and about the confusing boundaries between photography and photography-based digital art. (iii) Tips and tutorials of some interesting, new or less familiar techniques and approaches to photography and post processing.

Two days ago I took a few photographs at a fish pond next to Petach Tikva Museum of Art. There were a number of Tilapia fish swimming at the pond. Neither a slow shutter speed nor the series of quick interrupted shots used here are similar to the way we see movement. Yet, we can look at certain still images and make a pretty good guess of what reality was in those 2 to 4 seconds, while filling the gaps in our mind.
