    Just high-heels???

    You sit around at your computer and type to strangers wearing nothing but high-heels. Well to each their own I guess.

    is that guy supposed to be a good photographer, or something? i think he sucks.

By agatha on Tuesday, November 20, 2001 - 12:30 pm:

    i love the name agnes, for the record.

By patrick on Tuesday, November 20, 2001 - 12:43 pm:

    depends on your context agatha?

    he's a fantastic photographer. well-respected amongst his peers.

    he is limited in the subject matter he shoots.

    he has a regular spread in penthouse every issue, and has a book published amongst many other professional successes.

    i think some of his pics are amazingly sexy and even funny. he's a relaxed.

    this sucks???

    i don't think link{,this} sucks?

    I don't think this one is bad either

    this one is pretty funny.

    it really depends agatha. what makes you say that? where's the suckage factor? to me, he is a fantastic mega-grain black and white erotic/situationalist photographer. He's not attempting to be anything he's not. He's not over rated in my book.

    Is it the subject matter agatha that prompts your opinion?

    i don't think this sucks?

    I use to wear high heels all the time till my back surgery,now I don't.I had bunion surgery on my right foot about 4 years ago,and it wasn't pretty,my s/o had to carry me to the toilet.I asked my doctor what caused that and he said heredity or from shoes,since nobody else that I'm aware of in my family has had one I blame it on the shoes.

By agatha on Tuesday, November 20, 2001 - 04:16 pm:

    damn. i just erased my post.

    the pictures you referred to in your original post were, to me, compositionally uninteresting, and the tonal variety was not to my liking. they look flat to me, not rich and beautiful like photos can look. however, it might just be because i am looking at them on a computer monitor. i clicked on a couple more after looking at the ones you referred to, and they were boring too. however, a couple of the ones in your last post were cool, in particular that crazy vagina shot. now, that's a picture.

    just my opinion, patrick, don't get your pants in a bunch.

By agatha on Tuesday, November 20, 2001 - 04:18 pm:

    i don't like the one on the sculpture, it looks too underexposed. i like the one of the two men on the ground, and the guy looking down on them. compositionally, that one is awesome.

By patrick on Tuesday, November 20, 2001 - 05:14 pm:

    no no my pants aren't in a bunch at all. I just wanted to know why you said what you said. I have his book Obsessions....a tremendous book. I mean the stock they are printed on in the book is prints themselves. But you are the first person to express this opinion about him, to me anyway.

    because he uses such high speed film hence the super grain,and me making his photos rich. The blacks are really really black. Im really into blacks.

    The pic on the sculture is exposed correctly however i think the framing could be better. He should have gotten closer.

    Granted some of his subject matter is tremendously titillating to me. The photo of the legs off the side of the bed, with the stockings and the puss is just so damn visually appealing and beautiful.

By TBone on Tuesday, November 20, 2001 - 10:56 pm:

    Interesting. That was the one I liked least.

By TBone on Wednesday, November 21, 2001 - 07:49 pm:

    Not sure exactly. Didn't appeal to me at first impression.

    But I only glanced briefly, too. Looking now, I can certainly see that it's been taken by a skilled photographer. I can say all sorts of good things about the framing and contrast... And I like the legs... I guess the puss threw me. Probably some psychological thing.

    And while I like high-contrast and/or dark black and whites, I find the grainy ones less appealing than the real sharp ones.

By patrick on Monday, November 26, 2001 - 11:36 am:

    generally speaking when you get more contrast, you get more grain.

    the two often work hand in hand.

    grain is madsexy to me.

    i mean i really really get all tingly when i print 11x14 enlarged images taken with tmax3200 film pushed a stop to 6400. thats pretty much to deal with his prints. 3200 film pushed to 6400.

    Since converting the former guest room into turducken's room, when guests come to stay overnight they sleep on a full sized futon in the room that's the study. Though it's not as comfortable as the "magic bed" - as we used to call it - that used to be in the guest room, the futon is not that bad for a futon. I will sleep in there on the nights for whatever reason i toss and turn in my own bed.

    The only downside, and it's not that big of a deal, is that senor uses the closet in the study for his clothes and shoes and whatnot - since the closet (and two dressers) in our bedroom overflows with my obscene wardrobe. When we have an overnight guest, he just has to make sure to get out of the closet ahead of time whatever clothes and shoes he wants for the next day. Senor has only a few hanging clothes; the majority of the closet contains a shelving system where he keeps all of his t-shirts, sweaters, and shorts folded neatly and organized gap-style.

    Last Thursday night his good friend Mitch, who senor has known since junior high school, came to stay with us overnight. Mitch works for ESPN and Fox Sports News, and does stats reporting for announcers mostly for college basketball and college football games (occasionally for the NFL, and in the off-season i think he has been known to stoop to arena football). He travels non-stop for his job, and every year he ends up staying with us several times throughout the football and basketball seasons. It's nice because Mitch gets senor press passes to the games, often times with floor seats or standing room in the end zone.

    Mitch is a great guy, i like him a lot. In addition to being smart and talkative, he's also a very easy guest to have. But he's also mischievous - a character and a big prankster. Together he and i have played a prank or two on senor over the years.

    In any case, last night i was in the kitchen doing something and i hear senor laughing to himself in the study. He came walking down the hallway, waving a magazine in the air. He said in a fake accusatory voice, "Guess what i found hidden between my t-shirts." I shrugged. "A Penthouse!" and then, "Did you put this in there?"

    Which may seem like a strange question, except that i've been known to occasionally stick dirty pictures in places where he will find them - which is a difficult trick since senor hates fake titties, and it's difficult for me (though probably not for Nate and some of you others) to find dirty pictures on the internet containing women with their natural god-given boobs. The one time we rented porn together, Senor made us get a couple classics made in the '70s, and we bought thought they were somewhat boring. Porn with a plot is overrated.

    Well anyway, I didn't put that penthouse in his closet, and i was a little baffled, but only for a second. Senor said, "Well if it wasn't you, it must have been Mitch." Then he wondered if Mitch hid it there on purpose for him to find, or if he hid it there for himself and forgot to take it with him.

    Whichever. We decided he hid it there on purpose for senor to find. We had a good chuckle over it, and then sat down at the kitchen counter to look through the magazine. Some of the vaginas on those girls don't even look real, so small and blurry and airbrushed, even though they were shaved clean mostly. None of them had their real boobs. Senor thought some of the shots were sexy. It didn't really do much for me - my tastes tend toward the less graphic and more kinky.

    When we were done senor grabbed the Penthouse and and said, "Okay, well i'm going to go hide this." I asked, "Hide it? Why do you need to hide it?" he answered, "Because that's what you're supposed to do with your porn. Hide it."
