The psychologist is showing the adolescent some images.

I am thinking. Please give me less words and better pictures! I find the story, mostly boring and condescending, telling me how to look at the images rather than letting the images do the talking.

There's no excuse for including sexual comments as you have started to do. I therefore deleted the offending words, just cleaning up to conform to the T.O.S.

Your repeated jokes, Tom, as this here, remaining uncut, would imply that we tolerate mysogenistic attitudes.

Please not find excuses to decorate posts with such innuendo as it is damaging to this community and will not be tolerated.

Asher

Exactly, LOL!

I am happy that we have diverse opinions and attitudes. You are exceptionally modern and culturally have no issues. I however have to also consider the folk who are offended. That is why we have a TOS.

The language here should be as at a dinner table where young children, religious folk and grandmother are also present. We do have places "Uptown" for NSFW topics or presentations.

We could have your B&W portraits and then add in the same terms. It could be fabulous in an international art exhibition and you would be written up as a genius of the 21st Century and folk from schools of philosophy might even suggest that your work was an allegory for modern civilization.....and it would be!

Like you, Tom Dinning is a very capable and experienced photographer. His work stands on its own and doesn't need bathroom humor to be impressive.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

This picture was not staged. It shows part of our lives. Although the sight is very rare, anyone venturing in a public street, no matter their sensibilities, are at normal risk of such a confronting, (and IMHO, stunning), vision. In any Western metropolis, she would be considered "fashionable" and svelt and no doubt would be unlikely to be turned away from elite clubs in Hollywood.

Such a picture stands on its own.

It is like having caught site of a jaguar in the same spot! Not a common sight and quite exceptional!

Don,

I never saw those "girls" on Anthony Bourdain, LOL, but I can imagine. Thought he just went traveling for exotic foods!

Yes, I noticed that the picture outline had a blur, but that doesn't detract. In fact, it's more realistic. Perfection is not necessarily needed here.
