    Why is everyone of your photos revolved around drugs? Personally I don't like looking at these photos.

    At least put some sort of warning in your title because I don't think people at work would appreciate their bosses coming into their office and seeing DRUGS on the screen!

    I usually spend my time trying to avoid tweakers... they have an agenda that doesn't match up with me. I also think the shots are trying to romanticize something that only looks good until you've actually been around it day in and day out.

    im not a drug addict. that's just what i like taking pictures of. if you don't like my work then don't look in here. simple as that. all i was trying to portray in this is what meth users do all night and how stuck they get doing one thing for hours not realizing the sun is up already

    add1ct, I think putting a warning in the title is a fair request where the subject matter is concerned. Can I also suggest that given the type of photography you are doing, you might be better posting in the photo-journalism section. The Beginners Place is more about answering basic photography related questions and isn't really intended to be used as a gallery.

    Can I also request that you edit that last post, this is not a place where insults towards other members will be tolerated.

    It is certainly some of the more interesting stuff being posted on this forum. I saw the other one too in the B&W forum.

    There are several of these that are really good because they strike an emotional chord. The ones of the young girl on the floor and the close ups of the pipes and such- there is a surreal feel to a lot of these. They make you wonder about the people. What are they thinking, what is going on?

    These photos made me think. And that is always a good thing.

    However, you might consider putting a warning label on the thread. Some people will be offended by these shots.

    I agree...a work warning or something would be nice.

    in all honesty I enjoy looking at these photos...I dont necessarily think they romanticize the act of doing drugs. I enjoy seeing them because its not something someone usually takes photos of. they're different. I like them because its a look into a different life. they're personal. if you dont want to look at them then dont. Its his art.

    Chris of Arabia is right. Maybe this can be moved to the PJ forum.

    When in doubt, its not a bad Idea to List as "not work safe." or "Subject matter warning" or give some heads up.

    Actually makes it more appealing to me.;)
