Bunky’s Pick – Photo-Shooting While Female

I am mad with myself. I had my cameras, the low rez one and the good one. Not only did I not get a shot of the Elusive Butterfly of Love but I manage not to get a shot of:

  • All that human beefcake walking around with no shirts on.
  • Guys walking proudly in man-skirts or kilts, all I got was what you see below.
  • Men with all kinds of nipples and nipple rings.
  • Men with very interesting belly buttons.

Man In Kilt

I had full battery power. More than enough space on the memory card. What the heck was I thinking! I check all sixty of my snaps and I got everything but the stream of mankind walking around half naked.

Well, truth be told, I know what I was thinking. As I was watching half naked gay men I was thinking “Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink.” I need the photojournalism class. I need help, people.

Part of the problem is that I am still reluctant to aim in people’s faces. I don’t mind sneaking a shot but that ain’t always how this photo thing works. Sometimes you have aim directly at the subject.

There are times you have to forget that you are attracted to the opposite sex long enough to take the picture. I totally forgot this last Sunday. I shall strive to do better.
