photoblog image Negotiation

Negotiation

This substantial bronze sculpture has appeared recently in Lumpini Park.

Its a rather risque work, by Thailand's very conservative standard on public nudity and depictions of it, and it could be a reason why it seems to be attracting no overt attention from park visitors [except for me].

I like it a lot!

Today I start to look at Northern Vietnam in a photo essay on my
other Shutterchance site.

I like it a lot, too, Ray, especially in B&W!!!
Ray: I thought it worked best in glorious B&W, Ginnie.

So do I - but I expect you knew I would
Ray: I did have some kind of feeling you might like it, Chris.

[grin]
Either way this works because of the smooth bodies agains the busy trees.
Ray: Yes...I believe you are correct, Nigel.
Very tender Ray, I like it.
Ray: Negotiation d'amour seem to be like that, except, perhaps when you are a party to the negotiating...then it can seem to be excruciatingly desperate!
It's a beautiful sculpture. I like it because it's simple but also meaningful. And you managed to get a very good capture of it!
Ray: Thanks, Delia.

My feeling is most people could identify with the moment.
Very elegant sculptures Ray. Lovely capture!
Ray: Thanks, Richard.

I feel the B&W conversion helped on this occasion.
Makes a good B&W image, Ray.
Ray: Thanks, Tom.

This one does seem to work in B&W.
It is a lovely sculpture Ray in the nicest possible way and well done for showing it in B&W.
Ray: Thanks, Brian.I think it is tasteful, and engaging, but presents a scene and subject that is pretty much hidden or private in Thailand.

I felt B&W worked on this accasion.
Thai thigh ...

richard
Ray: There is plenty of that, Richard.

[grin]
It is very graceful Ray. I like it
Ray: I had not thought "graceful", Bill, but think it is an apt epithet now that you point it out.

Not a higher risque level than a shop window mannequin. At least from this angle smile

Haven't seen you go b&w that I can remember (but I am getting older). Great picture.
Ray: Thais are very shy about public nudity, Louis...many even react that way about naked mannequins in shop windows.

You are sort of right...I don't display many B%W images.
very unthai, one would have to say..

B&W puts it in that "out of place" mode..

Excellent...
Ray: The first thing I thought was "Very unThai". Then I noticed there were no people anywhere near it, and I thought "Very Thai".
