    I don't know where you get that from but there are many disquieting war images that are very good photographs, such as the one of the naked child running down the muddy road crying... We all know that, it's disquieting, scandalous, and a GREAT photograph.

    No one thinks its child porn either. Because in that time at that place it was showing the world something that was going on that would make an impact on the world.

    On the other hand, shooting a kid at a carnival licking an ice cream happens often and could be the wrong image to take in the wrong place, and you'd be a perv for taking it... Context...

    But again, I disagree that taking a scandalous image can indeed make a good photograph.

    Love the quote. "If you don't take money, they can't tell you what to do."

    I tend to agree also.

    This thread has mutated into some form of man-eating monster and has easily run it's course.

    If someone was to read the last few pages and not the opening post, they may be lead to believe that this thread WAS about a serial naked ice cream licking child photographer.

    As has been mentioned here and via PM, perhaps it's time to lock the beast away?

    Before the gate crashes down . . .

    I've found the thread to be enlightening on several perspectives (and contexts) that were not obvious to me. Then again, I don't do street photography. When I shoot a street, I want all those people to get out of the way of the buildings.

    OK, so today I decided to try some street photography.

    I thought it was going well until I was attacked by an angry guy, and in the scuffle the camera got completely jammed!


    So now I'm wondering, does anyone know the best way to remove a Yashicamat from my ass?
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
