Here is a Still-life I took to use up some film and I have been told it 'looks a bit RUDE' -- I was innocent at the time of taking ---

I do like the colours. Depending on one's imagination, it conjours up an image of a couple of things. :whistling:

The yellow capsicum has a passing resemblance to a backside I saw in town over the weekend. Perhaps Esther Rantzen could make more of it....

Well, it would have gotten you an A in the photo class I took in college. We discovered early on that the instructor would praise highly any image with even the slightest hint of a phallic symbol. I wouldn't call yours "rude," but it is a bit suggestive.

I think it's fantastic! Rude? Probably not, but certainly something to whisper about to your wife to see if she giggles. :)

Sounds like my photo professor. We have an art art history professor who is even worse. Columns in paintings are phallic symbols to her.

Look at the person who made the comment and ask them to explain what they see because you see vegetables.

What a bizarre mental image I just had of somebody playing the phallic cymbal in a rock band :D

Reminds me of my mum putting up decorations for Christmas or birthdays. Balloons were always in groups of three. Two round and one long one.

haha, i like it,

not rude by a long shot, unless you're a prude.
funny that someone should consider this, rude.


Now, lets consider a nude
perhaps in the wrong context, crude.
but never if ever, rude.

composition is key with food
fruits and veggies can allude,
but to censor is to obtrude.

and there is nothing more rude.

You can't control what people think when they look at your photos. Obviously, the person saying the photo is "rude" haven't been getting any ;). You know I mean veggies right :).

Edward Weston had some of his pepper photos banned by a gallery as they thought that they were rude.

Rude???? I saw a cannon with balloon tires. What's rude about that?

Now that reference to the "old Esther Sunday night show" really ages you and me. I even remember her as Bernard Braden's apprentice :D

And if we allow it to happen, we're screwed. :blink:



Thanks for the verse. You clearly have diverse and versatile abilities.
