well, well, well. I had no idea that I would cause a storm like this. If you're reading this then you're probably wondering who the bone head is that posted the picture.

It's me. I immediately knew this was the picture I wanted to take because it fit the topic perfectly. You see, this was a real life "famous last words". I got twins as a result of those words!

So if I upset a few people then oh well. It pales in comparison to the amount of frustration I have had at DPC with the way some of the votes are made on my pictures. I mean look at any last picture, Angel. How in the world can anyone let alone 4 people give that a 2? A 2! That means the image sucked! Dark, out of focus or something else disastrous. I wish we could root out these people and force them to say why they did it or at least see if its a trend for them.

I'll try to think about what lm posting in the future.

I thought it was a funny shot and not badly setup as well. I gave you a 7 and I'd have happily seen it in the top 10 or 20.

That is one reason why I never enter contests here. ;)

That's disgusting. Sadly, it reminds me of a friend of my mother's whose husband deliberately sabotaged his prophylactics because he wanted children and didn't give a ____ about what his wife thought.

He had 4 children this way, one of which has severe physical handicaps, one of which has moderate ADD and the other two are fairly normal teenagers...

Of course he left her for a younger woman after his deeds were done and the story is actually much longer and much more heartbreaking than this, but that's what it reminds me of.

It's also a good reminder for the reality of the responsibility that people undergo when engaging in sex. Especially youngsters who have little real education in such matters.

too bad!
12/04/2006 10:35:40 PM
Oh that's dirty. Dirty, dirty, dirty. The reflection makes it even dirtier. Nice shot though. Did you consider some amount of context? It might be nice to tame the shock value a little. I'll be curious to see if people are too grossed out to really look at it.

That's just wrong!
11/29/2006 08:32:22 PM
This is offensive for the quality and talent that DP Challenge represents. A tasteless photograph. Please keep these shots to yourself.
11/29/2006 08:21:34 PM
Oh, man, this is rough. I'll admit it is a well-taken photo, though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2006 06:07:50 PM
I was thinking about doing something like this, but I decided not to. It is a little too graphic and a bit disturbing.

Are the people who are asking what this is joking? Does anyone really not recognize it as a condom?

Even though I don't even want to know what it is, I think this is the best photo in the challenge. Well designed and executed. Great composition, colors and tonality.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2006 12:54:46 PM
I have my suspicions about what this is, but I'm not 100% sure. Nice use of colour, and I like the reflections of the... umm... thing :)

Ohhhh, man, I think you're in for a whipping. But unlike many other entries, this one shows exactly the right kind of saying for this challenge AND shows the aftermath, so I'm giving you a 9.
