    maybe ..

    and maybe people don't know the difference between a tv shows and "reality"
    but i seem to remember a handful of stories over the last few years about
    women escaping from homes where they lived as CHILD-abductees.
    (california a handful of years ago, belgium a few years ago, and most recently in ohio )

    while it may be just someone's imagination on television or in the movies,
    unfortunately it is a reality for some.

    i'd rather live in a society where people look out for one another than a society where someone's child is kidnapped
    and years later they are banging on a screen door to get help to escape and the person neighbor looking / taking notice just
    turns their back to them shrugs their shoulders and walks away ..

    Those stories are based on one-or-more realities way more often than many would think.

    This is taking a turn toward political ideologies, and that's a recipe for having my membership cancelled. So, with that, I'm going to hide the thread, and pick you fine people up on another one about techniques and equipment. Regards.

    Of course, would one expect original ideas to come from movie and television screen writers? Jus' sayin'

    I don't understand what you are "jus' sayin'", Steve? Are you agreeing or disagreeing?

    OP said kid was running around, not looking like he was forced to do something... must have been a newbie at the photolab, who already thinks people who shoot film are strange, so when he sees the naked kid he freaks....

    If the op, took a whole roll of the naked kid, somethings weird, if the op took a photo, where the kid looked like he was in distress, again weird... family photos, and naked kid running around, funny.

    to be blatant, as i get older more friends are having kids, and many of them are from el paso, tx (90-100 degree weather in the summer)... so amongst photos of food being grilled, family,etc... there's a naked kid here and there... no one thinks it's weird, because it's in CONTEXT.

    so op was singled out for a reason he is unaware of or omitted... or the photolab people at that specific place are 'sheep' to put it nicely.

    Ironically, would they have even noticed if this was shot on anything other than transparency film?
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Fundamentally this is an issue of discretion and not over reacting. I'm not aware of any legal obligation to report naked pictures of children but would definitely feel a moral obligation to report anything i was unhappy with.
    However i would speak to the client and explain my position. If the boot was on the other foot i'd probably be peeved that the situation was occurring and that suspicion was aimed at me but wouldn't take it personally. We should be glad that people have their eyes open, all be it misplaced: any criminal taking photos of an act they had committed especially on film must be as rare as it stupid. I can't see how destroying the original makes any difference, all in all it's a silly situation that should have been dealt with in a much better fashion.
    The very worst instance would be to let it go and then realise that you had missed a chance to stop some form of abuse.
