Is it exploitation

Writing this from Nelson - which is not living up to its sunny reputation. This morning weather is just plain nasty. Though it was nice yesterday afternoon when I took this photo. At conference so doesn't really matter. Tonight's conference dinner is at the WOW museum which should be fun.

You know that we are a family who keep their opinions to themselves (yeah right) so it may come as a surprise to you to know that I think Ann Geddes the photographer that takes pictures of babies and children, mostly babies, in weird positions is exploitative. I saw this morning as I was web browsing an adult take off of Ann Geddes - it may have been designed as a tribute but I prefer to think of it as a farce. Did like this picture

Not sure what you would use it for though - hard to imagine having it as a large canvas on the wall!

I am however still in frustration that Ann Geddes is the world's best selling photographer. I am a minority.
