The Sexually Promiscuous Female (1963) by Benjamin Morse, M.D.
(pen name crime writer Lawrence Block)
Lynn Munroe explains: "The Morse books were sold as nonfiction “case histories”.
All of them were made up by the man behind the pen name, Lawrence Block."

"Run" - The Perceptible Beauty by Gary Breckheimer, NYC photographer
His goal... the meaning is not immediately obvious... photos that lure viewers back for deeper consideration
so that his vision of man’s relationship and sexuality can spawn infinite conclusions.

Thoughts on my Future
On February 23, 2015, Google sent me an email advising me of a change in policy:

We'll no longer allow blogs that contain sexually explicit or graphic nude images or video. We'll still allow nudity presented in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts, or where there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking action on the content.

Does that include the above? What constitutes "sexually explicit"?

On March 23, 2015, Google will restrict access to any blog identified as being in violation of our revised policy.

I have no idea if I am violating that policy. If I am, my blog will cease to exist. It's been nice while it lasted.


my blog: Villa La Gaeta, Lake Como, Italy - Feb 18/2015
A beautiful vista, a classy locale, and an interesting bit of trivia for a movie fan. In 2006, the world was impressed by a reboot of the James Bond franchise when Daniel Craig took over as our favourite spy in the movie Casino Royale. ... I won't delve into the movie and its plot, but the final scene of the movie shows the mysterious Mr. White driving up to Villa La Gaeta on Lake Como, Italy. It is a fabulous residence with a spectacular view. Breath-taking. This has to be how the truly wealthy or the truly evil live.

my blog: Cinemagraph: The Work of Kevin Burg and Jamie Beck - Mar 23/2014
Cinemagraphs are still photographs in which a minor and repeated movement occurs. Cinemagraphs, which are usually published in an animated GIF format, can give the illusion that the viewer is watching a video.

my blog: Animating Still Photos - Mar 27/2014
When I think of an animated GIF, I immediately think of a mini-video: either an extract from an actual video looping over and over, or something like a cartoon where several frames are presented one after another to give the illusion of movement. Recently, I discovered that people had found the means to add movement to a still photograph with stunning results.
