Mural …

… on the wall of the local pre-primary school in our village.

Earlier today I’ve been puzzled with the meaning of the word ‘CREATIVITY’. How to define this word? So I looked for it in Wikipedia and this is where the Wikipedia-authors came up with in the headlines:

Creativity is a phenomenon whereby something new and valuable is created (such as an idea, a joke, an artistic or literary work, a painting or musical composition, a solution, an invention etc.). The ideas and concepts so conceived can then manifest themselves in any number of ways, but most often, they become something we can see, hear, smell, touch, or taste. The range of scholarly interest in creativity includes a multitude of definitions and approaches involving several disciplines;psychologycognitive scienceeducationphilosophy (particularly philosophy of science), technologytheologysociologylinguisticsbusiness studiessongwriting and economics, taking in the relationship between creativity and general intelligence, mental and neurological processes associated with creativity, the relationships between personality type and creative ability and between creativity and mental health, the potential for fostering creativity through education and training, especially as augmented by technology, and the application of creative resources to improve the effectiveness of learning and teaching processes”.

Can you imagine all the obstacles a photographer has to go through before he/she finally makes the perfect picture (not that this one is perfect 😉 )
