5 Curiosities About My Weekend

  1. In the course of taking photographs I told 2 straight men (on different occasions) that they were "pretty". Judging by their reactions I'd say it was the first time for both of them.
  2. One of the guys was showing off his sexy back and naked ass at the time.
  3. If you arrange a photo shoot with someone who kindly offers to strip for you, so you can try your hand at arty nudes for the first time, it will most definately not work to conquer the shyness if the girlfriend is standing by (see point 2). Nor will it work if they are so late that you miss the light, and the only halfway decent light in their dark house is in the kitchen.
  4. Someone anonymously left me a gift of an electronic pest deterrant device on my front doorstep, with a note about Buddhist vows and care for all sentient beings, including rats. a) It was a kind gesture, b) I never had any intention of harming the rat (not seen again since anyway) but c) Given that it was anonymous and Bodhi & I don't recognise the handwriting and this person knows where I live and reads the blog, I sincerely hope it's from a friend and not a kind minded stalker.
  5. I met another group of photographers on Friday night, this time at the first get-together of the "Newtown" group on Flickr. I'm beginning to realise that a shared interest, like photography, really can transcend barriers of race, gender, age and sexuality. I had a blast.

Okay... so when do we get to see the fruits of your labours from 1.

And secondly, depending on the kitchen, nude artistic shots done in kitchens can come out very nicely...

Yani, I agree that it could work, given the right sort of kitchen setting. In this instance, it just wasn't really working, the light was patchy and having the girlfriend standing by was inhibiting.
