I love photography. I especially love photographs of people. One thing I would never do is edit someone else’s photography to make it fit my version of aesthetically pleasing. As a photographer (albeit merely a hobbyist), I would be angry if someone edited or cropped one of my photos and I think it’s rude to alter photos submitted to BME, beyond the watermark we add, so finding photos that grab me, as is, is always wonderful. The photos that I post are, for the most part, ones that are sent to me in a file of photo submissions to choose from and include any information that was also sent in when the person submitted them to BME. Sadly, that often doesn’t include full credit to the artist or even give the name of the person submitting it but I include whatever information there is every time. I know in a previous post I was brought to task for not crediting an artist but if it’s not included in the submission, I have no way of knowing. So, dear reader, if you’re submitting photos to BME, please when possible, include all of that information because inquiring minds want to know (and it’s nice to give credit where credit is due)!
When I saw the following photo, which was submitted to the scalpelled lip section of BME, I knew I had to post it. The only name I see as a credit is xemaxtomax and I can’t quite tell if that’s who submitted it, or who gets the credit for the scalpelled lip. Either way, Venezuela is looking mighty lovely.
The symmetry of these piercings is really quite beautiful. There’s another great shot of this handsome boy after the jump.
