I don't know. Damian is a damn fine photographer. He has a way of catching 'the moment' even in fluid social functions.

Ha! Damian will get a kick out of that. I guess no one here is a Nick Cave fan then...

Merde, What have you gone and done now? I do know your twisted sense of humor makes a New York pretzel look like that proverbial, four hour, Viagra induced erection. Damn. It's too early.

You know, the one that if I were to have for four hours, I wouldn't only call my doctor. I'd call a priest, a rabbi, my friends, your friends, my mother and everybody else!

I'm adding more images as I can. So check for new stuff.

I just said that you're a lovely photographer. Top fucking notch.
It's past my bedtime now. If I don't dream about your glazed pretzel I'll be so very disappointed.

Since when do you have a bedtime? I thought you just hung off a branch in the shadows you beautiful twist.

Hey, Becky's back with her mom. I've got your Christmas card here. I think it's time to introduce them to the real story of how the baby jesus was conceived.

Damian, I don't think I told you the story as to how those "Christmas" photos came about. My phone broke so I don't have your number anymore. Send me a text or something.
You know, it's kind of fitting that my first post in over three years got 86'ed immediately.

Ok, Good morning, all.

I just wanted to make sure everyone knows there's no problem here between Merde and I (or anyone else). I actually didn't get to see what friend, Merde wrote.

But we are very good friends and I know whatever he wrote was a disgusting expression of his love.

There's no trouble between us.

But, there is my great appreciation for all that rose to my defense.

Here's what's funny: I got a message of activity on the thread. So I come over and see Fingerpickinblue's comment, "worthless". I thought, damn! He may not like my work but that's kinda harsh. I didn't focus on the quote from baubel. Then I see Miguel jumps in to, what I think is, my rescue (from Fingerpickinblue's comment).

As I write this I realize this is exactly what merdeverte lives for. He is loving the chaos he leaves in his wake. It's his genius. He'll get right in there among a group of praying nuns and silently release the most foulest of farts and then slip to the back of the church and watch as the nuns pummel each other into a pile of bad habits blaming each other for said fart and just laugh to himself.

Now let's get back to looking at my new peeechures. I'll be uploading some more new ones today. Share the galleries through the social networks of choice. I want people to see these.

I didn't work this hard to stack them up in a closet.

Peace out (ok, that's the first time I've ever written that and last I hope).

To quote the great work of Python, "Let's not bicker 'bout who killed who. This is supposed to be an "Appy occasion".

Thanks for that Damian although I didn't think for a moment there was anything nefarious in MerdeVerte's post. It was clear that it was just a friend poking fun at another friend. However, for someone passing by not accustomed to that sort of exchange, it could easily be considered offensive. This isn't church, school is not in session and my posts are frequently peppered with fuckin' profanity but Merde's post (perhaps inadvertently) targeted specific groups. I wouldn't want a visitor to WS incorrectly thinking we were a bunch of prejudice rednecks.

Beyond that, it's no big thing. :cheers:

Well, Miguel, Let's see if Mona can be converted if only for the time it takes to do the shoot.

One of my next models is coming from San Francisco and loves absinthe.

I think he'd agree. There's nothing wrong with large format photography at all. It is absolutely beautiful. The statement goes to the lack of creativity in some art directors. If they've got a dumb-ass idea, they'll come in insisting on shooting said dumb-ass idea on large format in order to save it.

Bottom line is that a dumb-ass idea is a dumb-ass idea no matter what the format.

Man, I miss shooting large format work. If only I could afford to still do it.

I knew exactly what you meant. But seeing large format and weak concept in the same sentence made it necessary for me to mention Ansel. It was just my way of agreeing about the stupidity of art directors (not all of them I guess - I don't know any, but their sorry influence is all over the place).

I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.
