I'm having a bit of a struggle. I recently made a photograph of little Elizabeth while she was eating ice cream and while she was sitting on the grass, naked.
Now, you can't really see anything but I am feeling a bit funny about it. Once the photograph makes it onto the internet, I guess it will always be floating about somewhere. Will it matter in 10 years? 20 years? It's an innocent baby picture.
Now I do honestly like the work of Sally Mann and Jock Sturges but this is different because this is my child. Like their work, this is a black and white photograph. I happen to think it is quite good. I also think, Elizabeth will really like this when she is an adult.
I've asked my wife about this and she has no problem with the photograph being shown on my blog. She knows the amount of traffic I get and she knows where most of my readers are from (yes I have tracking software).
So dear readers, what should I do? Would you post a photograph of your naked child, your naked daughter, on the internet? Any thoughts are appreciated.
