Title • don't look up #2

Following myla's request from yesterday, here's another "kid photo". And while this isn't as striking as don't look up, I do like it. Let me know what you think.

Two other things:

First, I keep an eye on the number of words I've written on chromasia and when it went past 100K the other day I got to wondering how many words had been written in the comments. Does anyone know of a script or MT plugin that will do a total word count, or better yet, just a word count of the comments?

Second: when I was taking the shot of the sofa yesterday I noticed an old piece of newspaper at its side. It was an advert for what I imagine are fairly tame soft-porn movies that you can download to your phone. Anyway, I took the shot, processed it, and was going to put it up tonight until my wife commented that it might well offend some of the visitors to chromasia. And she may well be right, but what I found interesting is that I'd taken the shot and processed it with hardly any thought as to its content. Normally, if I'd come across this advert outside of the context of it being a photographic object, I would also find its objectification of women offensive. But I didn't look at it that way and I wondered what that said about me and about photography. And all I could come up with is that sometimes at least photography or photographic vision is something that comes between you/me and a 'normal' appreciation of the world.

Again, let me know your thoughts.
