a question for the masses....

THIS IS A PHOTO MY FRIEND TOOK....


she can be seen here and here... I've pimped her before...

i saw the photo and instantly sent her a message asking for guess what....

I'll wait while you come up with the answer...




yeah, so i asked her if there were any more of these shots from the photo shoot. perhaps it was a warm day and they decided to do an artistic nude shot with film... i dunno, i think its an amazing photo. not just cause of the pretty girl but you will all have to agree with me, its a good picture... anyways, asides from being evasive and not answering me about it, another issue has come up...

i recently was at a large big sur party. (the whole town was there kind) and up walks my photographer friend of mine with one of her female friends... it took a few seconds after the introductions where made and i realized something...

"hey, you are the cowgirl hat in the lupines." i exclaimed.
"yes, that's me." she says with perhaps a tingle of red in her cheeks.

so here is my issue... now that i know the "model" in the photo, is it still acceptable for me to desire the image? I'm torn. its not like i necessarily want to see the girl naked. not unless cheese was there to supervise i suppose, but i think the image might be worthy of purchasing... great photographer, well on her way of making a big name for herself in the industry and now would be the time to buy a limited edition print and archive it....

my question is, is it ethical? would the model in question feel weird? i dunno... makes me not want it anymore, but it also makes me want it more... i could get both of them to sign it.... how do you all feel?

You should still ask to buy it. And I want to see her naked, so let me know if you get it.

Rock on dude.

her phone number? oh wait...

all part of being the model. sometimes you know the people that buy your nakedness. if she doesn't like it, she shouldn't have posed. tough shit in that category i say.
it's not like you met her, saw the photo, and wanted it.

ya, good pic, lotsa good pics there. she's been kickin ass lately which is good to see. happy for her.

too funny! you really thought about this one. whatever it ain't no biggie you met the girl, bought us enough drinks to get the print basically for free, and had some fun, who cares, you want the print, we will get ya the print. i wish i could say i shot some insane nudes on film, but that isn't the case, what you see is what you get! but i got more shoot ideas so maybe the film will be busting out.

I worked in a brothel and a strip club.
I used to yearn to see them fucken dressed by the end of the night. LOL

The fact that she is beautiful doesn't change if you know her or not.
What you like when you see her in person or on the cover of a mag is the same.

Dr Zibbs said...

Please pass my number onto the model.

Leni Qinan said...

How would she feel? Come on, she's a model, she must be used to this.

And how do you feel about it? well, confused, right? She's not just a movie star, but someone you've known already. I do think it adds a difference -more powerful-.

And yet, i think you should buy the print. Otherwise you'll regret not having done it.

Cece said...

Well, it looks as if I'm fashionably late as always, and guess what? I showed up and your problem is solved. Damn, I'm good. I hope you enjoy the pic, but most of all I hope you enjoy the weekend.

Kay said...

If you see a piece of art and your gut reaction is that you have to have it, then you should get it.

Personally, not sure if I'd still want a pic after meeting the model in it. Takes away from the anonomity of it all.

kay, you just want to see her boobs... i understand.
