I have another photo from this shoot of Barker, nude, frontally, which just got bumped for showing "female genitalia." While I feel that pic is beautiful, tasteful and classic, with its barely visible crotch, I DO understand the issues and reasons for such censoring. So, any of you who liked that pic, and want it, just write me here with your email address, and I shall email it!

This is my friend Barker, with her dog, Jack. I know, the names are confusing! We took this pic in a gorgeous setting, which is the oldest bar in Houston, Texas. (Spent a lot of time there kicking back the Guinness!) The lighting was gorgeous, and I used strictly ambient (existing) lighting, which I prefer for the natural look to it. I used a Mamiya C-330 with its 2-1/4" format, and Tri-X, 220 film. The pic is gelatin silver, and printed on agfa fiber-based paper, which has such a lush look. I scanned this pic on a Canon Pixma MP 160, and here it is, with zero female genitalia showing, and hopefully, is as tasteful as its predecessor was!

    I loved that censored shot. It was very tasteful indeed. I've noticed a lot of censorship lately. Shots covered for no reason.

    I love this shot and definitively deserves my vote for this theme. It deserves to be published.
