You get to an age where emotive rubbish doesn’t bother you. Not for me thank you.

I think a quick look at this would miss the fact that there's some kind of devil's shadow on the wall. The inclusion of this speaks of message to me. Would I have known the message without the title, though? I don't know, because I can't really tell what's in the guy's hand. With all his tattoos, it sort of looks like he's trying to make another one with the punch method.

If you want to make more of an impact with shots like this you would need to make the subject anonymous. I'm not into this sort of thing but that doesn't mean it can't be effective to others. The image and detail of the face takes away any credibility to this one. Turn his head to face away and you've got impact.

The people with whom I work patrol the streets of London looking for folks with a great deal of hopelessness and despair in their lives, hoping to get them straightened out (drugs, alcohol, depression, mental-illness, any such emotional crises). EMO is a youth-and-music phenomenon, whereby very strong feelings, especially about death and dying, are entertained as a form of leisure activity. Sex and death is an ages old obsession - and often motor-cyclists (see the HD T-shirt) are in the van when it comes to this! (But I don't mean to smear all motorcycle riders - far from it). The idiom of this photo is indulgence of the flesh (body-piercings, tattoos), living life on the edge, suffering as almost pleasure. It may not be nice, but it is as much a part of everyday (city) life as is anything. Don't close your eyes to it. If PBlog is not about life, then its about "nothing at all!"
