Post 100: Nice, France

For my 100th post (Yay!), I’m posting photos. These are people I saw while in Nice, France.

I ask myself a lot, “What is beauty?” Remember, I watch people so you don’t have to.

I wonder about beauty, because I have friends who qualify it differently than I do. Maybe I’m more forgiving. But I don’t mind the blemishes. No one is perfect. But I think it’s the photographer’s job to create beauty. It’s as much the responsibility of the photographer as it is as the subject.

Wait a second. I think it’s more of the photographer’s job than the subject. Why? Because the photographer should have a toolbox of ways, methods, ideas to hide what we want to hide and show what we want to show. I don’t look at magazines of pretty people and say, “Ooo la la, how beautiful.” But I’ll walk down the street or through a grocery store, and I’ll point out someone I find attractive to my wife. She’ll tilt her head and say, “Really?” I’ll explain why, and she’ll say, “I might not have seen it.”

Anyway, I really want to do more portraiture, so if you want shots of you done for a nice price, now’s the time.

The photos I’m showing aren’t portraiture. They are paparazzi style long-lens shots. All of these people I find attractive, in their own ways.

Dip below the fold to view more shots (some show human nipples, so they are NSFW in the USA.)
