    I like this.......at first I thought it was a figure carrying a large Birthday Balloon.

    We have a ....Card-Factory...shop in town......I often attempt to catch folk leaving with large helium inflated balloons, in just the right position....but no luck yet.

  • Confident Naked

    This doesn't bother me personally, but it isn't anywhere close to the usually tasteful, or even edgy female nudes we get on here.
    They are usually out of sight of the public, in a private room, studio or discreetly out of the public gaze, not all beautiful not all well produced, but out of public places.
    But I certainly would have felt pretty angry if he walked by and I had my young granddaughters with me, he and the others involved should have been done for indecent exposure....or...am I just old fashioned?

    If this is the route, we as a civilisation are going, we are heading for deep trouble.....

    I bet he wouldn't be that bold strutting about in December, January or February?

    Studio, private nudes yes........but what he and the others are doing isnt right ...... if you think its ok, then I suggest you have a go, to see how far you get.

  • St. Michael and the devil.

    As a local, I watched the New Coventry Cathedral being built, from the foundations up to completion, the whole place including the ruins of the nazi destroyed original building continue to fascinate and to enthrall me.

    It is a great pity that they have begun to charge visitors for entry, this must inhibit quite a few potential visitors, especially those with families.

    A great study of a very impressive sculpture.

    A beautifully crafted baby portrait, it captures the developing character and sense of fun.

  • The Reading Room

    Nooooo!

    You definitely wouldn't have wanted to sit in there for long reading a paper........I remember using thunder boxes like that for real..................they were always very, very ripe, which is why they were always at the bottom of the garden.

    Great pic though.

    Mono at its very best........a very witty/amusing study.

  • Vase

    I can't tell you why, but I find this photograph very pleasing to the eye, you have defied the central composition rule, but the graded horizontal bands seem to cancel that out. .........These also make the vase appear to be levitating.

    One for the wall I think?

  • E1 Squad RAMC 1955



    Hope you don't mind if I add a very similar pic.....I was part of National Service Intake 5610 at Hadrian's Camp Carlisle, Royal Armoured Corps May 1956..... That's me with the glasses standing directly behind our hated Driil Sergeant.

    After six weeks basic training, then eight wireless training, I was shipped out to Fallingbostel in Germany to join my Regiment....the 4/7th a Royal Dragoon Guards.....the camp was just a few kilometers away from the Bergen Belsen Concentration Camp, I visited there twice.

    Thanks for the memories.....Yes! National Service DID make men of us.....they should never have stopped it.

  • The Derbyshire hills

    A truly wonderfully observed photograph Moira.

    To have an eye for detail like this is the dream of many everyday photographers..............having watched the TV program on dancing horses from Bolsover the other night, it is obvious that this stone must be passed by and not really seen, by thousands of visitors......I bet only you has ever spotted the landscape within it?

    I live almost next door to Kenilworth Castle, and have taken many shots of wind-worn sandstone in a similar way.

    You have inspired me to go and have another go.....thank you!

  • Don't ask

    This is Street Photography at its very, very best......

    Inspirational, and funny.

    Now a serious question.....I consider the shot to have potential for Exhibition.

    But, as a very keen Street Photographer.......would, you, could you, should you, did you, request a ...Model Release Form.....signed by the subject?

    I stopped exhibiting my Street Photographs, for this very reason.......it is inhibiting enough to capture such a serendipity moment....but to have to chase after the lady....or any ....Street.....subject, kills the moment....I stopped exhibiting Street photographs after exhibition organisers insisted....no release....no exhibit...

    Not to hijack this thread.......a subject worthy of sensible debate, I think?

  • Bad Day Self Portrait

    This is a very honest and moving shot......you are a brave man, who remains positive in the face of adversity. I'm ancient now, but suffered many setback on the way........I discovered that many of them had silver linings....and that's no Bull.

    My good lady and I had been married for less than a year, she was pregnant, and we were asked to leave our tied cottage after a disagreement and exploitation ......I must have looked and felt like you at the time.......But with the help of an extremely good employer ( not our landlord) we were able to put a deposit on our first freehold property, a two up two down cottage that cost 475.

    We haven't looked back since.....it is our 56th wedding anniversary today.

    Onwards and Upwards 👍
