Lots of words have been wasted on whether photography is art. It is unanswerable. But that’s ok. It is similarly impossible to explain what converts a faithful portrait or an accurate bronze sculpture from being just an image to having the elevated status of art.

Of course, most art takes a lot more time and effort than what it take to snap a single picture. But in the end, art remains elusive.

Thus it was that I decided to take a detour on the trip home after our Sunday dog walk. (My wife and I join a group of greyhound owners for an hour walk each Sunday - the walk takes place about 35 miles from home.) The detour was to stop in Paterson at the Great Falls and get pictures of the snow before it melted.

Here are a group of us with our hounds. We ended up with but seven dogs - on a rainy Sunday morning.

I too no more than 15 minutes to do my picture taking, and then we finished our drive home.

Are any of the pictures also art?
