    Is it a bit 'Rude' ?

    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.

    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
