    Not really bragging, just a statement of fact. I'm full frontal after a 5 year self imposed exile, showing publicly as part of the exhibit, Shadows, at the Santa Clarita City Hall First Floor Gallery. I have two GSPs, WO–CHI (Flame) – (30"x40") and BILH–BIGIH (Within) – (20"x24"), in the multi-media exhibit. Both works are visible in the fourth pic down in link. Through April 15, 2014.

    To be "well hung" in my country means something completely different, but also not something to boast about in polite society :D

    "Well hung" has a slang meaning in the US, and it may be similar to the UK slang meaning.

    And don't forget the semi-archaic meaning of "hung" - as in hung over (see Mame starring Rosalind Russell for an example).

    You hang a horse thief. And afterwards, you say he was hung. Sometimes the "ed" ending just plain ain't proper English, no matter what the dictionaries say.

    Congratulations! I wish I could see them in person, but even the web site photo conveys the luminance and your impeccable presentation.

    Most likely.

    When most people use the word hung, they really mean hanged.

    No. Hanged is the correct past tense.

    I agree with Steve.

    Meat is hung, people are hanged!

    communicate

    One of the reasons for photography is to communicate. We think you will communicate better and sell more prints if you avoid gutter talk. We cannot believe your mother did not teach you better manners. We would think someone with prints in a public gallery would want to show at least a modicum of class. Just suggestion under "presenting my work to the public."

    I hope you're trying to be witty, otherwise this comes across as sanctimonious claptrap. And who is the royal "we"...? :blink:

    Can't really tell from the photos how you are hung.
