[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Mama never told him not to look into the eyes of the sun. . . . MIG welding without a mask. You will be hard pressed to find an image like this anywhere. The artist is a genius, but not a fountain of common sense. Don't try this at home, boys and girls.

A super capture of light but a foolish act on the part o f the worker to work without eye protection. I like the composition and the exposure is very well done!

Thank you for your comments on my photo, "Ocean Beach, San Francisco".


Hi Hugh,
I like this nice portrait with the great lighting and the mood of the photo. The position of the head is perfect with great exposure to keep the details of the surroundings. Very well done.
This man is really crazy to weld without a mask.

Nice composition and great colours - great capture. This is obviously someone who doesn't value his eyesight, as "arc-eye" is not a good condition! Still, genius and madness go hand in had so they say....
Thanks for sharing
