Tired of threads that

1) Make accusations against other FReepers and FR moderators
2) Cause people to wonder if humans have evolved or were influenced Divinely in anyway
3) Slander or pander to President Bush

Then this is the fun thread for you!

It is crucial that you catch the camera or somehow cushion its landing.

The lawyers made them say that.

Whatever happened to stealthly taking other peoples cameras and taking the "moon shot" for the unsuspecting owner?

Seems the best fads always fade quickly.

Also, try pointing a camera at an overactive child sometime, on long exposure. I used to think this ruined my shots of my nephews, until I realized that the shots captured the motion and energy of children.

Art is in the eye, even a digital eye.

I'm not a fan of Picasso. However ... a Picasso is pretty recognizably a Picasso. A Van Gogh is easy to spot as a Van Gogh.

I am also not a fan of Jackson Pollack. But either he was an artist, or he was lucky. If he was lucky, then the man who puts a drop cloth under a flock of pigeons may be equally "lucky". If we consider Jackson Pollack an artist (and most people do) then we recognize that he brought "something special" with him when he approached his work.

"Camera Tossing" results are either good or bad a matter of luck. The results are not recognizably attributable to a particular "artist". There's nothing special here.

I'm tired of art that can be done by anyone.

Now that our intrepid reporter has discovered cameratoss perhaps she can go on to enlighten us on the history of LoMo photography.

At least they're not tossing salads.

Give the camera to this little dude and you'll get Dwarf Camera Tossing!

None of these accidental pics compare to the worst sunset.

You could always do what I did:

1.) Get on a horse for a leisurely ride.
2.) Hang camera by strap around saddle horn.
3.) Hang on for dear life as horse takes off like a shot.
4.) Laugh and show your friends all the new "art" that your
camera took during the ride.

Nice post. A real tribute to the creative human spirit. And yes, of course it's "art".
