Subject:More Spencer Tunick @ Sydney Opera House pics...
Time:07:27 pm
Here's another shot from an online news website - a detail... which includes me (arrowed).


Spencer Tunick - The Base

Amusingly I appear to have long flowing blond hair (when in fact I have extremely short brownish hair, what little hasn't thinned off the top) - it's an optical trick caused by me standing in front of a shorter woman with long blonde hair. A huge reproduction of a photo very similar to this one was spread across pages 2 & 3 of today's The Daily Telegraph, a high circulation Sydney tabloid newspaper. So now I'm on page 3 too! YAY!

The print version pixelated any visible penises but not breasts - however there's at least one unpixelated penis in the pic above. Strangely, The Daily Tele, in running a story last week about nudists protesting against being kicked off a long-standing unofficial nude beach in Sydney censored their butts (a photo of five naked people with their backs to the camera) with large asterisks... claiming that it was a "family newspaper". And yet today they publish 100 or so pairs of breasts...? Not that I care about the breasts, but they do seem to have a very confused editorial policy around nudity.

Here's a pic from inside the Opera House theatre - I'm in there in the foreground somewhere but mostly obscured.

Spencer Tunick - The Base
It's a great photo even though you can only see a small portion of the people that were in the theatre. The funniest thing Tunick said (quite unintentionally, I might add) was, "Everyone look at the organ" - at which everyone burst into laughter. You can see "the organ" in the background at the very top of the photo...

Haha, I've performed in there! That's the concert hall, not the opera theatre, btw. (/pedantry)

I don't think the Telecrap has a policy about anything, other than "yell loudly and encourage the readers to be outraged about everything".

Haha - yeah, I think you're right about the Daily Terror. They were remarkably positive about this story though.

And thanks for the correction - I wasn't quite sure what any of the spaces inside the Opera House were called so I just made it up. I've only ever been in there once before to see some opera (for free) that I've long since forgotten the name of. I saw the Japanese flute dude in a theatre, and some Burlesque show last year in one of the smaller side theatres. I've lived in Sydney for 30 years and only been to the Opera House for entertainment three times, that's pretty crook - but at least I've been there nude too!

That's totally awesome!

Also, breasts are for babies so they are OK. Butts, on the other hand, entice to buttsecks. Which is naughty. At least that's my guess on their reasoning.
