When many of us picked up a camera for the first time we had no idea there were rules. We just had fun. Think back to how much joy you had in shooting whatever you wanted to your hearts content. But then we grow wiser and find that a picture we love dearly doesn't follow other people rules. While rules are needed the best thinkers of the day tried to find ways to break the rules in ways that made people think, or view things in a whole new way. Others broke the rules just because they could!
While we all want to take a "pretty" image many of us are still wanting approval. And that is normal, but do not let it stifle your mind and thoughts. Your camera, your paint brushes, photoshop, and your pen are all there for you to try and be your own person. Try things and if they do not work, at least you can say you did it. That you were not afraid to be bold.
These images I found are funny fav wise. They either have tons or have too few. Personally if you did something risky and people do not get it or fav it, I think that is their problem. Not yours. You do not have to explain your art or excuse the thoughts that dance in your head.
