Maybe I’m gonna sound turnt for saying this but there really needs to be a dialogue between young photographers about taking pictures of people without their consent. It’s 2014.

Important.

Don’t forget old photographers. Notably Bruce Gilden and his ilk. 

Taking pictures without consent is the basis of street photography. Get rid of that and you might as well set up a Sears Portrait Studio.

However! Taking the pictures when you know full well that your subject doesn’t want you to and that shows in the photo as well is a different thing. It goes from documentation to being a rude, invasive asshole. That has to stop.

If you refuse to accept that you’re photographing people and not someone’s pet, you need to fuck off.

Yes, Jeri Ryan is a lovely woman. But she’s also a lovely woman in regular clothes too. 

Star Trek Online is set three decades after Voyager ended. You’d think that in that time she’d be allowed to be something else than spank material for babymen. I love STO, but it doesn’t take too much searching through the forums (Or the Star Trek FaceBook page for that matter) to see that the Star Trek fanbase is filled with man-children.
Look guys: I know Gene Roddenberry was a perverted old man who’s Utopian ideology never really extended to women. But you don’t have to emulate him. You even have the option of growing the fuck up and trying to live up to the ideals your favorite TV show kept preaching.

A story about life in Korea just for Tumblr…

I was stopped today by a Korean fellow who wanted to know about my Yashica Mat.

He was quite polite, but he had the nastiest B.O.. If you’ve been to Korea, you’re familiar with it: The trifecta of cigarettes, soju, and kimchi stewing on a hot, late summer day. He asked to see how it worked and though my eyes were watering, I allowed him to look through the viewfinder. 

In doing so, he bumped up against me, transferring his nastiness to my arm. Some minutes after he said goodbye, I picked up his nose ghost lingering. I assumed the ever present wind in Gunsan would blow it away as I biked towards home.

I assumed wrong. I may have to bathe myself in hydrogen peroxide.

Photographer! Huh? Yadda yadda! Where? I see him! on Flickr.
This was either Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning in Busan. I’m fairly confident it was in the P.N.U. area but I could be wrong about that. (Given how same-same everywhere in Korea looks, it could actually be Seoul.) This was another Yashica Mat shot. Normally the frame is 6x6 but I cropped it down to get rid of some boring gray building. Remember: Cropping is your friend.
