    Political message & city

    I was born and brought up in Iran, a beautiful country full of history. I started taking photos at an early age (15 years old) of my life with a Lubitel, a Russian twin lenses camera.

    Kombizz, can you read the political statement? It would be very poignant if it is something that relates to the woman.

    It says something political about beheading American Journalists.

    Does it really or are you letting that pugnacious character of yours get the better of you?

    Kev, for someone being here a month, how do you know what kind of character I have? Your comments should be to the poster of the thread and not comments made by others about the post. This guy has been tossed out of other photo forums for his political bs. This is a place to display photographic prowess and not to be used as a platform for political or religious retoric.

    But then how do we have a discussion? And didn't you just do what you said shouldn't be done?

    Whats your point Adam? Kev made his remarks directly to me so I responded to his remarks. Now you are responding to whose remarks? This guy has been banned from StevesDigicams for one site. What proof do you need? You dont believe me then go ask the moderators there. Why does there always have to be a wise ass. Oh yes, this place is full of them. Am I the only one that doesnt like to see this muslim crap. Enough of my friends have died for their cause and I dont like to see any of it. Lets keep it photographic and not political.

    why not both? If you don't like it, don't look at it. Simple as that. Thats what living in a "free" country is for. freedom of speech. you don't have to listen. You clicked on the link, He is not forcing the picture on anyone.

    personally, I think this image speaks volumes. there is the American commercialism (the Bosch sign in the window), the oppression of women and the extremism in the graffiti. Do I agree with the later 2? No. but it is a powerful image.

    I looked at the picture and made my comment. You dont like it, tough. Now make your responses to Kombizz and not me. My last word on it.

    Bynx my apologies, the word pugnacious was meant as a descriptive, not as a personal reference to your character. Like I've stated in another thread I have been viewing this site for 12mths or more now, I just decided to register. To your mention of fallen comrades, death is never to be negotiated, neither is religion, so who's right?
