For my friend Roger ...

In response to his post on my favourite photographer Herb Ritts [post 275136], I give you another example, but at the same time express my deference to Roger and his talent for the limmerick!

Imagine if you could, and I might,
if on your head a great white,
would happen to perch,
while the photographer search,
for a film to catch it just right!

HERB RITTS
Rachel with Shark, Hollywood, 1989
20x16 Silver Gelatin Photograph, Edition 25

Admitting that I know very little about photography ... other than the fact that I use a couple rolls of film a month on my children ... I have one favorite photographer ... that I found on website... and I use his images in my blog often ... his name is Valery Bareta ... I hope you'll take a look ... let me know what you think !

WUB,

Her sharp briney essense is found
Within her pink pulsating mound,
But fish heads like this
I think I would diss
Because of the stench quite profound.


Ol' Herb had a penchant for putting aquatic animals on the heads of his models. Look up his photograph entitled "Djimon with Octopus"!

Ars longa, vita brevis.
