thanks gael. it is lovely. took forever to grow it over that window to keep out the summer sun.

I am so tired of beautiful, though. tired of still life, scenery, sunsets. I feel something coming on.

i think you should move into street portraiture. i know where you stand on the subject matter, but hey, at least it will take you out of your comfort zone...

I am out of my comfort zone, never really had one.:)

so you feel just fine about those people on the tube that you blogged? I don't. And I took some really personal photos of people I don't know in the UK. One in particular that I love. Just can't do it.

but am thinking hard what to do.

i had a really long think about it after we spoke in London that day. in fact, i even went away and read up on the subject in loads of forums, because it's a question that has been very well documented.

i don't think i look at it differently to the way you do. i just think we stand in different places when we look at it. i feel fine about the people on the tube that i took the picture of. i held the camera up in front of them, and they didn't even look in my direction. if someone objects, then no, i wouldn't take the shot, but to me there's no difference between that pic, and the pictures you took of madonna.

you know madonna is different. she is a public figure and being photographed is part of her life. and I called the post 'Louise', her real name, so it wouldn't get googled.

I just don't know. But still life and beautiful are over for me. going for ugly..:)

thank you for the HL.

it's an interesting discussion, and i'd be keen to hear other thoughts on this one, so perhaps i'll take it over to the forums.

i'm waiting patiently for the ugliness to arrive... :)

Ta da, here it is....

Oh, not that type of ugly? Ah well, not to worry.

Interesting discussion. Would be good to get a large number of opinions on it just out of curiosity.
