At the LA Zoo. A chimp Mom and baby. Fun to watch them. Such human behaviors. Still enjoying the 300mm f2.8 AF IS.
Opened comments because this is a photo that might encourage discussion about negative space, cropping, and balance of line and form. OK....begin discussion.

This photo gives me mixed emotions. I love it...my parents are happy, Squi is happy, and I remember it as a good day. But it's metaphorically sad because I know some day his Grandpa and Grandma will be a fading memory to Squi. They are both 87, so odds are they will not be around that much longer. As I age, I am becoming more and more aware of the brevity of life.

Shot at the LA Zoo with my new 300mm f2.8 AF IS. Love that lens. I got a kick out of this Chimp. Looks like he's saying,"all I want is a carrot and a nap...and to be left the fuck alone!"
LOL

On April 11th I am proud to announce, I will be hosting a Kinbaku Workshop with legendary Master K.
 

Author or several books on this fascinating erotic art form, Master K is well known and respected all over the world.

We have two models and are keeping this class SMALL, so it is imperative that you sign up right away if you are interested.

I will be teaching the lighting.

This is a one day class held at my studio.

I took all my nudes off line. Too much hassle with theft and trolls without any return on my investment of time. That's the easy explanation.
I might put them in a Dropbox folder and send people links in the future. We'll see.
Thanks so much!!! Welcome back!

We stopped seeing each other a few years ago. I tried to remain friends but she has completely disappeared. I can't find her anywhere...and I've tried!
I hope she is OK. :(
But....things evolve and I'm happy as I can be.
Hope you have a Merry and Happy!!

Wow. Your Marcia Hase shots are stunning, and I crazy-respect your integrity in hiring pro-stylists for this very specific look. This classic shibari look is hundred of years old now, it definitely deserves to be done properly. I would just die to see the full shoot, but I know you deal with a lot of nasty, ignorant people on here. I hope someday I'll get to see it!

well...you certainly know about dealing with those asshats, huh!? Sorry you have had to face it also.
Easy way for you to see the whole shoot is just to come to LA and let us do one of/for you! :) 
Thanks so much.

Hi Hi!
I understood from what you've said that some commenters are bothering you, so I wanted to apologize on their behalf: I am really sorry.
Your works are wonderful and I really love them:) (Smile) (excuse me for my bad english Sweating a little... )

well...it's just that it inhibits me from sharing images I would really love to share. I just don't have the time to monitor all the trolls.
Thanks so much!!!
