While I can agree with the photo not showing respect for out better halves, I think it it sums up the elderly fella quite well. At least upon my examination, it definitely looks like he is taking a palm shot of the two ladies and seeing as he is caught he most certainly deserves a little ribbing.

That aside, I'm not a fan of voyeur-style photos. If you're bold enough to take the shot then you should be bold enough to ask.

Seems that from an accidental shot I have stirred you all up, Just try walking down the street with the lens wide open, a fast shutter speed, and your thumb on the trigger, lots of rejects but also some gems, my apologys if I offended anyone. I must point out that after 84 years on this planet I cannot resist a bit of humor.

Last post,

That would certainly make me go back and look at thousands of my pictures with different eyes...looking for things I never paid too much attention to!

This is a typical thread that may generate Flamm, the argument is a typical move for interpretive mechanisms that are affected by many different registers read: emotional - cultural - social - anthropological - historical and social variables.
The complexity is determined by superimposing such universal themes as the large concept of '"humor" and of "good taste":

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taste_(sociology)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humour

To summarize what I have to mention is the overall perception that remains after reading this thread: the result is enlightening and instructive as the solution of a Zen Koan!

1 - thank JJ for your sensitivity and concern that is honored respect for the elderly.

2 - Thank Grounded to show that at 84 years of age, is possible still have the spirit and enthusiasm to have fun as a kid


P.S. sorry for my bad English.
