Caught a Soul?

December 20th, 2008

D20 5115 Caught a Soul? I shot this photo of Phoenix Kelly today. I was playing around with some fabric and my 50mm f/1.4 lens used wide open to play with shallow depth of field. She just wrote to me to say this about this photo, “Love this. You caught me. On camera. That’s the first time that I recognize the girl in front of the camera..”

I like it too. So now you get to see it. Is there something of Phoenix’ soul in there? Who knows? Maybe Phoenix knows…

If you are reading this you know that the church ladies found my blog and reported it. The warning about “objectionable” material started showing up. I’m still thinking about how I want to respond to this. It’s annoying, but not all that big a deal. The number of visitors is down, but I’ve never been all that concerned about how many people come here. I figure I’m more interested in quality than quantity of readers. And I’m sure my friends…the readers I care about…are still going to be clicking through. I’ve never cared a bit about the wankers who may come here to see naked women. I don’t shoot for them and I don’t blog for them. But I also don’t think the warning will have any affect on them, other than to possibly draw a few more of them in.

So, what should I do? Ignore it and go ahead? Or maybe just move the blog to another place where I don’t have to worry about the church ladies. I guess I’m most annoyed at the attitudes that would lead anyone to say what I do with photos is objectionable. I object to that. That’s an attitude that truly is objectionable.

Oh well, life goes on. It’s not like this, or any other, blog is important. It’s just something I do. And I suppose I’ll keep doing it until I don’t want to anymore, and then I won’t. If I decide to move somewhere else I’ll give plenty of notice, of course, and leave a link here. But I won’t be doing anything for a while.
