Love me Tender

Love me Tender

Still trying to relax I pick up some more soothing images. This is a lovely couple sharing an intimate moment with me. Is it ethical to spy on people with your camera to show the world? For the sake of beauty and art? I prefer to protect their faces a little bit but of course family and friends will identify them immediately, sorry boys!

    I also wrestle with the privacy issue. However, for now I tend to think that if persons are in public view, and are sharing an intimate moment, I am free to take their picture.

    Now I might be wrong but really who is to say. I will never zoom into a person's home and the rest is fair game.

    What do you think?

    Anyway, I've been looking at your blog and it is wonderful as usual.

    Take care and regards,
    Luna (Barcalunacy)

  4. The photo is soothing, yes! Normally I would ask, but for this picture, I think it's perfectly legitimate. Luna is right about intimacy in a public place. Good capture. Love is GRAND!

  5. Hi
    I'm just new in this kind of photoblog, but I think it's a great idea and you guys make a wonderful job!
    Love BCN, love your pics, the last one, so romantic, don't think you break any intimacy rule, they were just there, as you shoot your pic.
    Keep on doin' ;-)

  6. Acabo de ponerlo en inglés, pero como veo que te hace ilusión que salga en castello lo vuelvo a escribir..
    Soy nueva en esto de los blogs, y me encanta ver el trabajo que haceís, visito frecuentemente estas páginas desde hace unos días, creo que me estoy viciando jeje. Como madrileña me da bastante pena que no haya uno actualizado de mi ciudad que (creo)también es muy fotogénica (aunque no tengamos mar). En fin, esta última foto es realmente bonita. No creo que les importe verse reconocidos... si fuera yo te pediria una copia!
    Saludos y sigue así!! Eres un artista!

  7. I thank you all girls for the supportive comments regarding intrusion in people's privacy. I agree with you. Thanks Luna for turning back and browsing my pictures. It is always a pleasure.
    Thanks Jing for your optimistic, beauty inspired philosophy. I admire those wise words you always use to define things up.
    Thanks Kate for your opinion. Both Luna and you give me strength to keep trying.
    Thanks and gracias Dsole. Welcome to my blog! Si, me agrada que me comenten en castellano o catalán porque me gustaría que mis fotos se vieran en mi tierra también. Siempre es un placer tener comentarios como el tuyo. He visto tu página y me ha gustado esa inquietud filosófica que tienes. Creo que pienso muy parecido a ti, así que intentaré seguir tu trabajo. Tienes razón tienes una ciudad muy bonita y ya es hora de que a alguien se apunte a hacer fotos de Madrid nuevamente. Un saludo.

  8. I'm thoroughly captivated by your photos....particularly this one.
    Wonderful capture!
