    That gallery is on my doorstep.

    I am amazed that such a gallery would not pre-screen images,, maybe they did,, who knows!!

    Thanks MOD

    probably did screen and the work may not be what we call porn but nude and not to tasteful for the viewer....we all have pics of our kids in the bath and changing nappy times and sea side nudes at the pool , ' well i do '

    Simon,

    Yu have a point here!!

    I am always really cautious when taking images in a public place. I am CRB checked and carry that wherever i go, especially for the local council event work i do.

    Its a sad state of affairs when we cant point the glass at a pretty girl without the finger pointed at the poor guy employed to take the pictures.

    Simon,

    I know what your sayin!!

    I did 2 seperate shoots for a local tenants and residents event. Lots of bouncy castles, rides, etc etc.

    I was wearing a high viz vest,,ID badge,, and still i got questioned about my intentions. The paranoia is too deep rooted!!!

    I agree with your approach tho!! I got some superb shots of people in just ordinary everyday situations.
