    Let's pick on someone who *really* deserves it.

    I know there are worse photographers but they don't make me queasy, so my vote goes to David and his 'erotic' soft focus chiffon clad Liberty print flowing haired angels.

    Nothing like a Royal Passport, to smooth the splinters as you slide down the balustrade of life. Although Snowden *is* the genuine article.

    Hamilton was good at what he did... though what he did would be dismissed today - with good reason - as veering a little too close to under-age porn. His use of young girls is questionable, but it's the achingly pretentious text in his books that makes me gag.

    No doubt he used his connections for all they were worth.


    You read his books? :eek: :D

    never seen his stuff before.

    Seems pretty bad. Partly because of the content and partly because I don't like soft focus on EVERYTHING.

    The occasional Orton effect is interesting, but not for EVERYTHING

    I'm busting a gut here. It's Hugh Hefner on acid.

    What does he use them for, propping his speakers up?

    WTF?

    WHSmith and Boots.

    Could be considered NSFW, hence no pictures.
