But obviously you are judging.
You think maybe they wanted to ridicule the dead by doing that? Or maybe they were just on acid and forgot she was dead at all?

You say such a practice is sad, but they did not share your views, so why do you think they did do it?

It was a custom, during Victorian times.....which coincided with early photography....the scene of the child is sad...I have no idea, why you keep insisting, that i think the practice or motives are sad.....are you often this delusional?....

I insist upon saying it because you insist upon saying it.
".the scene of the child is sad.. " In YOUR view, YOU are interpreting the photo as sad, but to the family of the child, it may have been a source of great comfort.

Are you trying to say that looking at the picture makes YOU sad, and not that the picture itself is a sad picture?
To me photographing a train wreck is a sad picture, or that girl in Vietnam running away from a napalm bombing. Those are sad pictures. But dressing the dead in grand garments and taking a picture of them is not sad (but not my cup of tea either).

And jeebus, race, get off it! A dead child is sad. Okay? Can we move on now?

Seeing a small dead kid is sad.

My point exactly. A dead child is sad, but not necessarily a portrait of one. Nor is the practice of photographing a dead child, a sad practice to engage is.
and I will shaddup when you cease your insipid obamma rants that go on for days at a time.

I thought I would have to have a colonoscopy today and I hated that. Turnout, I don't need one, woo hoo,

I now get to finally eat, then nap while they observe and make sure I'm okay.

We had around 120 trick-or-treaters. I made the cacciatore and it was pretty good. Had it over spaghetti squash. *sigh* The sting of next Halloween being 364 days away is soothed by it being my floor's Diwali celebration. Going to stuff myself with delicious Indian food around 11:30.

Oh! Thanks for the reminder. The Indian engineers I used to work for get together every year and throw a Diwali/Eid-al-Adha party. I have to reply and ask for extra time at lunch that day. My tummy is rumbling already!

Nobody forces you to read these posts.
Its amazing that some people are so quick to spout out how others can just skip over posts they dont want to read, but then get themselves worked up when they themselves see posts they dont like.

(shakes head in amusement)

Besides, if you would just admit I'm right the subject would die on its own (pun intended of course)

Right about an argument that no one has made and only exists in your head? Ok, race, you're right about something no one has challenged.

You counted them?

I had none, just as I expected. Had dinner downtown and then walked around the waterfront a little bit, people-watching. Nice and peaceful.
