is she a couch potato
Chris: Indeed she is Jude: she came round to watch watch all in wrestling on my television the other evening
Magnifico Tiffo!!
Chris: I will take this as high praise because a certain amound of entwiddleisation has occurred hereabouts - as I'm sure you are aware
this is a beautiful vintage looking shot!
Chris: It was put together yesterday Charles on a very wet day when I had nothing to do other than brood over what I would like to achieve

LOL at JIM. smile I see you have a great imagination when it comes to so-called 'light,' Chris!
Chris: I take the view that if a photographer isn't interested in light Ginnie - then he's playing the wrong game!
Well done again on your twiddles and/or imagination. Amazing what retirement can do, eh?
Chris: Hahaha - retirement exercises everything Sheila because I now have the time to do a lot more research. And other things too, of course

Lol at the ladies-comments! (In German we have a nice expression for such older men in retirement who often love showing photos of naked or half- naked ladies, but it may be better to shut my mouth!)- the first retro- pic is refinedly twiddled (snow/rain?) -and your title is often fitting!
Chris: We have a phrase in English too Philine - dirty old man! But in my defence I would claim that I am merely an artist who is only interested in aesthetics

Perfect title, very nice and b&w suits it.
Chris: Thank you kindly Aussie
Great title for both images Chris!
Chris: Glad you like it Richard
I always dreamed of being one of those 'traditional' artists who gets attractive ladies to pose nude while they 'indifferently' paint or draw them - all in the cause of art. But you are more honest than that and simply remind us that the female form is beautiful whilst the male form is only fit for the rubbish bin.
Chris: This is young Miss Dawson Chad: she came round to look at the full body scanner - which unfortunately is now in pieces. We had to disrobe because my central heating system got too hot to turn off!

Amply-shaped features, Chris...your Bench Restoration Consultant, no doubt...

Yes, we use the English phrase, too, but the German metaphor is quite more expressive and funnier! -
To Chad: A friend of mine said the same words (perhaps in a bit more elegant way) like you, but do look at Greek sculptures..., I think you should not have the last word!-
I suppose the female perspective may be a bit different and more sensitive in this question of posting photo's of nudes or not. Who is the "artist": the (Victorian?)photographer whose name I sadly cannot research without being logged in a special website - or the photographer today? We had in our creative writing group a very interesting discussion after having visited an exhibition of Helmut Newton's nude photo's in our city!
Chris: Helmut Newton was a great photograher Philine: I wonder if he was a relative of Blackdog?
This is rather interesting. Your post production is rather impressive.
Chris: Thank you kindly. It took hours to do, I admit - but it was a rainy day yesterday

What's this? More snow, Chris? I'm surprised that the photo of the naked lady has made it through the Mad House's firewall!
Chris: But it's ART Alan. Imagine a photography website that excluded art!!!

Sorry - you mean your work firewall. It probably thought she was a map!
I like Philine's reply, I wanted to stir up some debate.
Chris: She has obviously thought about this Chad

The male form is no less a thing of beauty than the female form, but neither is as attractive as well crafted sausage
Chris: I fear we may be into the realms of the freudian slip here Mr Figgis!

Newton's photographs are fascinating and repelling at the same time- and the faces of the women are often enormously sad (unendlich traurig) and lonely -perhaps there could be a slight reference to melancholic Blackdog? (Inspired by some photo's of HN I wrote two 'poems' I very like, but only in German)
Chris: A pity you cannot share them Philine
Funny snow down your way Chris, but the ladies are very attractive.
Chris: They are indeed Brian: thank you
The blanket of snow should have been used to cover the sweet lady smile I do like the top image its got a bit of mystery to it.
Chris: Mr Evans's shed bathed in light Linda: not snow
Looks as if you have rain all over the lens..then shot against the sun..but must be a twiddle Chris.
Was she one of your girl friends Chris!
Chris: Oh God - if only!

The debate is nearly as good as the image Chris smile
Chris: It is indeed Tony: thank you
I don't know, if you were after this, but that's a pretty darn good photography, Chris. Maybe a bit too much of the blurry stuff on the right, but the line of the steps, and the old house hold the image pretty tight. Must try doing it more often, though I know, you have more important things to do in life. smile
Chris: I took a lot of time & effort to try to show the effect of light upon my back yard. Not all have appreciated this fully Vik - but I sure as hell knew you would!
fantastic shot Chris and great ton toosmile
Chris: Thank you kindly Tim: I appreciate your words

Chris: Thank you kindly Mal: that was precisely the point of this

B&W is perfect.
Chris: A pleasure Rob: thanks

This picture seems to have been taken from inside a sauna. Great picture(s) smile
Chris: Yes Louis: it was the steam issuing from my ears that made it go funny!
There is something orgasmic about both these images Chris ... or has the frothy head to my pint of Adnams got to me. ;-) richard
Chris: I was thinking about you drinking Adnams during the week Richard - AND IT MADE ME FEEL THIRSTY!

Oh, I really love this one, Chris. The light is just magical, as it has its own life.
