WARNING! Nude Photos and Loud Check Shirts, as we Head-On into the Head On Festival..

Don't worry or-do, as there are NO nude photos on this page, you will need to visit the galleries to see those photographs.. there did however seem to be, at least to me; an excess of 'Real Lumber Jack' plaid shirts, at least on the men anyway and those pictures DO appear below NSFW? You decide.. Why the heavy loud plaid you ask? Perhaps that's because its winter now or perhaps that's because Photographers are real men.. or real men enjoy photography.. Oh hell! Apologies to all the lady photograp-hers out there, don't change a thing, just keep being fabulous and you may wear plaid because a plaid dress does not make you into a lumberjack no something much more stylish. And if you didn't click the link before, here's that lumberjack song.

Lumberjacks aside the Head On Photo Festival is already in full swing even though the Official Opening is TONIGHT at the Paddington Town Hall, see you there. And already I am caught up in the pictures, the crowds, the photographers and the FASHION! Speaking of Nudes, I submitted a very nice personal portrait to the portrait prize - of a friend of mine, with just a little nipple peek and it did not get selected! Which just goes to show that even if you know the organisers as I do, that does not mean you get in (although I have before). The selection is by a panel of judges so, you know, its all about the selection process, which is a good thing isn't it.

But back on track, I have now seen four/seven shows kicking off with Richard and Famous 2014 last Saturday at Westfield Bondi Junction; then last night I started at 10x8 Gallery Central Park Broadway for Lynn Smith's Nightrunner,  (website not fully detailed but it's on) then, as you do when its Festival time bumped my way along to two other galleries. Eliya Nikki Cohen's romping in the forest and sand nudie pictures at The Corner Cooperative, see Eliya above and reflection of nudie pictures below. And some great shoe porn as well which as you know IS the kind of fashion Porn that built the web!

What is it with the door bitches at Black Eye? I know they don't have them at every show but they had them at this one; my answer is always the same, "I'm not on your list so don't bother looking, I'm here for the show." Honestly this sort of thing is going to give art in Sydney a bad name - if you want to moderate the numbers in the space, by all means do so, if you want to worry about your drinks, try tickets as they do at White Rabbit; names on list? This is bad form guys at an art show, whoever's idea it is, get over yourself. Now back to the shoe porn and more nudes at The Pool Collective's group showing 'The Naked & the Nude'.
