    You inferred. I implied nothing,simply leaving you to your own conclusion.

    And you picked two names from untold millions. A distinct minority. Hardly making a valid point.

    So clarified in the post.

    So you have no opinion?

    That's silly. Listing millions of names is not necessary to validate the point, which is that using disquieting or scandalous subjects is valid.
    Those two names suffice to validate the point. Excellence is always achieved only by the distinct minority.
    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.

    Oh sure. He wanted pix from you to use for promotion. Did he offer an assignment? Did he offer to compensate you in any way or grant access for you to shoot unencumbered? No. Without evening being sure of who you are, he just says "send me pix". My bet is they were either for him or the guy who's head of his archdiocese.

    Is someone raising cattle around that place? I believe the Latin phrase is: I smell "bovenis excrementus".

    And as far as the pool and the lifeguard are concerned. I would have tossed a Baby Ruth candy bar into the pool, pointed and yelled "DOODY!!!". Then left. I always carry a couple of those or Snickers in my run bag for just such occasions.

    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.

    I tend to agree - I actually don't think it is going anywhere - most have had their say....dare I say, lock time?

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

    Like Ed Wood movie ? From screaming women and kid showing finger - to breastfeeding - up to anorexia - and to people with special needs.

    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.
