->> WTF??

I figured I'd seen most of the crap that passes for photography these days. Sure, converting someone to B&W except for crazy-colored eyes, awkward family poses and stretching the boundaries of creativity into the realm of bad taste. And many of those photos do that and more.

But the maternity shoot using the ultrasound image Photoshopped on the mom's belly left me stunned (Page 6, at the bottom). Gobsmacked. Flummoxed. And more than a few idioms that would get me banned from this site.

I'm selling my gear and getting a job at Sears selling lady Kenmore's. I have no idea how to compete in a market place where that kind of unique creativity has a niche.
