    What the hell is that little girl holding in picture 8?

    Did anyone else notice that the rifle in #1 doesn't have any sights? I wonder if it is a new pruchase awaiting a scope?

    yup, looks like a heart to me.

    Pretty lighting, but her models don't have any life to them. They all look solemn and unhappy and static rather than active. Not much appeals.

    I found pict 7 interseting. All kinds of handguns hangin loose on the wall and the eye protection locked down in the glass case. We need more protection from protective eyewear. It's for the children!!! :D

    Well, judging from her blog entry on Tuesday, May 01, 2007, titled, "Mission Accomplished", she probably didn't make those pictures to give to Oleg for pro-2nd Amendment posters :scrutiny:

    Hmmm? Being against the war in Iraq makes her anti-RKBA?

    Not automatically, but its a good bet.

    You lose on that conjecture. Ask around. The gun forums are full of folks who think the Iraq war was a mistake and are progun, pro-American, anti-terrorist. They aren't pro-stupid strategic mistakes.

    I have to agree with Pax on the static feel. Of course, it's just possible that Oleg has spoiled me!

    Agreed. I have many close friends who are against the war in Iraq and still very pro-gun, pro-2nd Amendment. Honestly, from a Constitutional perspective, I'm not sure what I would do...

    However, since it was mostly the liberal media that was pushing that picture around, I still place my money on her being anti-gun :neener:

    I would bet not. My guess is those who oppose the war are more strident about it than those who either do not oppose it or support it.

    What makes you think it was a strategic mistake? Because the war lasted longer than 100 hours? Because Nancy Pelosi says so?

    Very odd pics on that page. The women/girls either look utterly disinterested
    and staged, or like a deer-in-the-headlights.

    And what is with pics 5 and 6 ?

    :uhoh: :scrutiny:

    A question about the war/rkba thing developing here: Can anyone tell me
    why support for the Iraq "war" and support for rkba should go together ?

    OK....but maybe Oleg could give her a few pointers.

    BTW, could anyone get the "Halloween in Harlem" link to work? I really wanted to see that....it looked so safe and PC.... :rolleyes:

    Instead of conjecturing and projecting what you think her views on private gun ownership are, you could always email and ask.


    That said, some of her stuff is quite nice. The pic on her blog of the guy with the tipped over charcoal grill is great.

    picture 8 definitely contains a deer heart in the girls hand. i wonder if she is thinking "yukk!!":D the images are fairly static and do not flow well. i am not sure a rifle outside the outhouse will be of much help when the #### hits the fan:neener:

    I like that they show actual women and not fantasy gun babes. :)

    I think the one of the little girl with the deer heart is really cool, actually.

    I'm a pro photographer

    -who exhibits often with pieces in major museums and collections.

    She's building an impressive resume but her work leaves me cool. Oleg has a lot more heart and soul as WELL as composition. In fact, that's what's missing. Heart, soul and connection. I don't think she understands women OR shooting and the photos just don't teach us anything visually or emotionally.

    It looks and feels like a portfolio done over a long weekend by a student.
