I like the shot, Rob, but I can't avoid a nagging feeling that you might be stretching the word "Recent" just a tad far.

No, no, no. Please Rob don't listen. Recent is not an exact period of time. For me Rob's images feel very recent.

There some breast's in the picture and some let every measure of time and space go. Some are so brutally honest with themselves. There's no wink wink or other emoticon connected to my post.

Jeremy, 'recent' is a comparative term; at my age, recent isn't the same as for a newborn babe. My mother told me, approaching her nineties, that she was still twenty-seven or so; I believed her then and I now know she was telling the truth.

Goddamit, we still make and look at documentaries about (classical) Roman mistesses, wives and mothers! If two thousand years is but the batting of an eyelid, what's a few long months or, alternatively, short years? (We may make movies about recent Roman ladies too, but I can't vouch for that because I haven't been in a cinema since Thunderball because the print I was attempting to watch was OOF and the manager, when I went to complain, said it wasn't.)

;-)

Anyway, it's light relief from other things. Such as taxes and cerebral battles about photographic morality and honesty - a paradox, no doubt - in the art world.

At least I offer no Statement!

There are many images of topless girls everywhere. Not many of them have the sensuality of Rob's photographs. And I admit that the girl theme in photography alway attracted me. And I love the (Mediterranean) sea. Both combined is wonderful.

AND these pictures are professional work.

I think a definition of "recent" that might be useful here is "since Rob C was born."

And to Michael Ezra,

I hope some day you'll tell us just how you designed and built the anti-gravity studio that you obviously use for your nude photos.  ;)

Eric, it is just a 14'x21' living room with seamless 9.5 feet paper background. When I am done with the Levitation series, I might share the custom-designed support built with plumbing pipes and a few hoses from the dish-washing machine all for $60 @homedepot :)

Great images Joe but poor timing if you wanted anyone to pay attention. It'll take a couple of days for this predominantly male forum to get over the breasts that preceded your post.  ::)

You're an optimist, K.C.

I was there, shot the shots and still haven't got over either the breasts or the times. All I know is that both were real, and that in the case of the Greek ones, their owner and my wife later spent time in Cannes discussing the rash of identical Arabian ones being sported along the edges of the pool of the Montfleury Hotel where we were staying on another shoot (identical, not in the sense of being simliar to the model's but that a common design ran through the Arabian ones; you learn so much with travel. We firmly believed Slazenger had a hand in it).

Again, thank you for the kind remarks!

;-)

I never have enjoyed getting up before dawn and driving for miles. But then, you duz wot you have to duz.

Kodachrome 64, of course, one of the Nikons and probably the 2.8/35 non-AI'd Nikkor that was my crispest piece of glass at the time. I don't think I'd like to try shots like that with digital. That's one of the good things about digital though: never made me get up early.

Rob, I hated sunsets pics. Before seeing this.

(Excellent composition too)

Keith, Fred, thanks very much - glad you like it!

Fred, it isn't a sunset - it actually was shot at sunrise, the main reason being that that beach gets a lot of low surf in the late afternoons sometimes, and that causes quite a bit of humidity to hang like a cloud; apart from that, I can't figure a way to get the damned sun to set in the east.

Thanks. Hey does anybody have a current live contact for an editor or someone at Sunset? I have a couple of things I want to pitch to them but get 0 response from any of the listed methods of contact.

Thanks, but yes, nothing like a nice pair of breast to distract my counterparts.   :D

I had the opportunity to be at the Phase One World Tour in Hollywood the other day. Great program and Phase One, Profoto, Eizo and Siren Studios really were very exceptional in providing a superb experience. We also had presentations by David LaChapelle and Art Streiber.

I also had the chance to shoot a few frames with the IQ260, very impressive. But what impressed me was that in the very bright sunlight outside on the roof of Siren Studios I was able to clearly see the screen on the back of the camera. Even more visible than on my Canon 5DMkIII.
