When does a photo stop being a photo? Just curious as to other opinions..Is it when it no longer resembles a photo. Is it when its not actually a place or thing but something created By graphics or a combination of five other photos and its something that doesnt really exist? Is it when its created in your mind and then created with a camera and software? Just curious to others point of view...or is any image a photo as long as it doesnt have texture or substance. One dimensional?

The great Belgian painter Magritte, made a painting of a pipe. Under de pitcture of the pipe he wrote : "Ceci n'est pas une pipe !" (This is not a pipe !). Because it was just a painting of a pipe....

Thanks for your friendly comment on my photo.
