Subject: [Leica] Peter provokes contentious controversy
From: pklein at (Peter Klein)

Since no one commented on a photo that I thought might provoke some
discussion, let me try again:

- Who the hell does Peter think he is?  Diane Arbus?  Kyle Cassidy?

- Did he get permission to take this picture from the subject, the Zoo
Director, the Mayor, the Police Commissioner, the Department of Homeland
Security, and the Committee for the Correct Treatment of Human Subjects
by Exploitive Wannabe Concerned Photographers?

- What's he doing at the zoo, anyway?  Man, that's *so* bourgeois.

- This photo would have been *so* much better if taken with a black
paint Flommolux instead of a chrome DR Summicron mismatched to a black
chrome M6TTL.

- The bokeh ruins the shot.  Sorry.

- Incredible!  Pulitzer Prize!  Family of Man!  Thirteenth honorable
mention in Parade Magazine's annual "Gushy Family Values" snapshot

- Peter *who*?

Your comments welcome.
