If money was no object , I would go to philosophy and art history , optics , glass blowing schools in Italy and Germany. I would spend my money in to them and see what happens to my photographs 15 years later.
+1. I already have more material possessions than anyone realistically needs. I, too, would opt for the education route: pursuing further studies in philosophy, art history, and literature would be my dream. And, like you, Sir, I would like to see where these avenues took my photography...
Some Nikons (F6, F5, F3P, F3HP, F2ASx4, F2A, F2 and a D800), with Ai/Ais Nikkors ranging from 15mm to 600mm; Leicas (M6X2), with Leitz glass from 28 to 90mm and a pair of Hasselblads (500c/ms), with Zeiss glass from 50 to 250mm. A bit of stuff for a no-longer practicing professional, but justifiable for a now-converted hobbyist who absolutely loves taking/making pictures.
At first i didn't understand you meant ladies in a figurative manner.
Did I? Hmmm, I dunno about figurative... They all have Cytherean figures, that's for sure--we're talking 4 x F2 here: great genes, the perfect phenotype; curves to die for and muscle tone to make Masha Sharapova green... Not that any of them ever needed a bubbly CLA in those past four decades, it would merely be a sign of my awe and admiration. (Likely to be spurned, I know; "Just give us something to shoot," they'd say.)
Oi, each much more a lady than I will ever be a gentleman!
