Or maybe you got a friend to do it. Why should we really care either way?

    I can't put stuff up here without links. Flickr banned me after 9 days. I lost 190 pix at Flickr. Photobucket takes my pix down after a day or two. So I have to use Tumblr and Artslant. I appreciate the votes you guys sent in anyway.

    This is not a puzzle or trick poll in any case. I just wanted to see how my pix are viewed by others. I got some comments about certain pix from other fourms and was never aware people had such thoughts about my pix.

    If you guys can get it up to 25 or 30 votes, that would be great. I will give you the answer tomorrow after a few more votes. (Hopefully)

    Why is it important? You seem a nice guy I enjoy seeing on here. Why would you want to post such a caustic photo as that?

    I can't view your picture as 'staged' / 'not staged'. Therefore I can't vote. To me that is immaterial. The more important question is: What does this picture mean to you? And that will be different for many people, but to me it's a reminder of a very ugly time in the history of humans. I value compassion and empathy, but also value truth and honesty. So it's with slight reluctance I say this, because it stirs powerful emotions within me, but I also am trying to understand your motif(s).

    The most interesting discussion surrounding this picture has nothing to do with whether it is staged or not, in my humble opinion; it has to do with what it means to people, how they react to it, and what emotions it stirs. Ugly truth is better than a lie any time.

    Sorry, but it seems to me like an example of going for shock value by reaching into a bag of clichés.

    Exact same sentiment in this corner. I have a myriad of thoughts and feelings about your image, but none of them would depend on whether or not the image was staged or not...

    Personally, I found the photo to be banal and unimaginative, so I didn't vote. I find peoples responses to it entertaining.
