  1. OK here we go...a bit of fun first...
    A very nice Ass emblage des choses...lol
    very clear definitions...the shins, the muscles, the toes, the feet, the wear and tear holes on the body suit, the lighting, the contrast...a very sensual, yet simple, everyday-life shot.

  3. My goodness. She looks dead to the world...with her purse in the open next to her. What a shot!

  4. To be honest... I dont know if she was alive or not...although I suspect she was. I am but one of many people who were carrying on with their day in the park and most did not even notice her. Admittedly it is rather strange... many things about it, least of which is where her bag is positioned, she has no blanket or anything to protect her from the grass, she not dressed like a day in the park, and and and. So, I dont know. But then isnt that easier than prodding her, finding she is not alive and then getting caught up in the complications attached to that?..... suddenly I realise that I am a product of a society which no longer cares... and that is scary!

  5. Hm, I just don't like this image. It feels exploitative to me.

    I trust I didn't offend you by saying that.

  6. No you didnt offend me. I might agree with you if this was not perhaps in the center of the most public place in the city, on the busiest afternoon of the week.

  7. Interesting I didn't see this as exploitative ... and certainly assumed she was just asleep on the grass ... not such an unusual sight around here on a summer's day ... you don't have to be sick or homeless to do it ... just enjoying the sun. However, I did wonder if the shot of the lady begging was exploitative ... but it does work as documentary. If we censor then we are not recording what is going on around us and that is what your blog is about.
