Is this a Chip?

By paulbroad  
As it is Shakespeare's anniversary, a simple shot from my fish and chip series. Instead of a skull, a chip! She certainly seems to have doubts or is possibly studying it as an art form. No one has yet defined fine art to me, might be a chip!

Nice candid shot Paul!
Is she what they call a chipmunk?

Possibly a friar?

I think you are obsessed with chips Paul!

She might be Butty, the quality control department.

Hi Paul,
Cooking chips properly is an art.
I heard that a chip can be boiled initially, get fried and cooked partially, freeze and get fried again fully before final serving; the so called triple cooking of the chip, similarly to triple distilled vodka.
I would call this picture ''everyday art'' although I am not sure who would buy it. I suppose this woman is a mother ready to feed a child who is out of the frame, that could be a picture with selling potential.
My opinion is that the aperture should be wider so it blurred the background as much as possible.

No, she just inspected it before eating it herself. There may be some deep meaning but I suspect probably not! May be checking for a coating of salt or correctly soaked in vinegar? After a matter of minutes, she had had her chips, so to speak!

Shakespeare had it covered either way round. You're clearly thinking of Hamlet and 'Alas, poor Yorick' - my mind went to Macbeth and 'Is this a dagger that I see before me?'

The grip on the chip... is part of what makes this: it's uneasily away from the thirds, and that sort of adds to the 'moment caught in time' feel.

This is definitely the way An Actor would eat a chip.

There's a children's story about a panda who goes looking for meaning, and to find out whether he is a black panda with white patches, or a white panda with black patches.

In the end, he decides he is just a panda who plays the flute.

I am not sure about art, as I am not sure about theology. But I like taking and looking at pictures, and I try to do right rather than wrong, when I can tell the difference.

And I enjoyed looking at this picture.
