Well I wouldn't get hung up on it. We all say things we regret in hindsight.

Let me think about that for a while.

All will be revealed in the end.

Arturo, you say you can see it being one of my oddly placed jokes, but I'm still not getting it. Maybe my sense of humour has left me today and all I'm left with is the question, 'why did Arturo single out me and Mags as possible contributors of those photos? Does he think it's one of us in those photos? If not, does he think that one of us took the photos?

Just to make things clear, I don't think there's anything wrong with those photos, I'm not an offended prude, but I do think that there are some upsetting underlying preconceptions on your part about women in general from Latin America, and I get the strong impression that you've included me and Mags into your sweeping generalisation. This isn't the first time this has happened either.   

Maybe I'm just making a mountain out of a molehill here.

(Just as a P.S., many of the 'white men' who descend from the hordes of German, Polish, Portuguese, Italian and Spanish who migrated to Brazil in recent history would be offended by your assumption.)
I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

I know it's not usual to disclose who submitted a picture but in this case not knowing is causing unwanted and unnecessary friction. The 4 pictures with women in them are mine. The man is the boyfriend of the young lady. 3 of the pictures were taken as part of an unpaid for amateur photo shoot where I was learning the art of erotic photography. The red head lady was a random shot at my daughters wedding. So Mags and XSPx have nothing to do with them whatsoever.

Thank you for disclosing that information Tank.

(I think they are excellent photos, by the way, as is always the case with the ones you submit to these challenges).

It would look great with a couple of googly eyes.

Awwww, Tank, you didn't have to do that, but I appreciate it. I agree with XSPx, they are excellent photos.

It wasn't submitted as an entry, but posted to the challenge thread. However, I can add it to the poll if you like.  :)

It was my pleasure.  :computerwave:

**Ahem**
I must admit that the Camaro is a beauty.
The Power Stop high-temperature red powder-coated performance brake calipers add a certain je-ne-sais-quoi to it.

~That's all I wanted to say. 

Please continue.

I will try to not interrupt again.  :run!:

They are nice, the red calipers (so that's what that red thing in the wheel is? :P ). :smilenod:

I still insist though that it could benefit from a good pair of googly eyes. With long eyelashes. :tellmemore:

Add googly eyes with long eye lashes...Yeah...Sure...

Spoiler: show

Oh, my god, no, that would be so awful...

...Please don't do that to such a beautiful car.
