"a major operation"

A friend underwent a major operation yesterday... I couldn't stand any more after taking a few snaps!

Happy April Fool's Day!!!:-)

PS. A couple more:

I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm an ordinary man but extraordinarily obsessed with capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. It's like an excited traveller craving to record his memorable journey in a memorable way, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs...

This is awesome. Reminds me of a Thomas Eakins painting.

Oh my i first thought this was some magician show ! The Saint revisited by Magic Tattoo ? I love the blue circle up there and the girl seems to eat her own wrist to stand the sting - happy April Fool's Day too, i love this day, reminds me of my childhood and my grandma's tricks (oh look a spider under your feet, or : oh come girls, it's snowing, and so on - i missed her & smile at the souvenirs too ;) Have a delicious end of week in that magic light

@k@: How would one expect to see such a thing in a "camera launch event"?!! I could hardly get any closer!:-) Yes, yes, yes this day certainly reminds of the happy childhood and how we classmates played tricks with each other! Have a great Friday!:-)

这是在纹身吗? 那个发光的圆圈很有意思 边上的氛围和红色的影调烘托出了气氛,感觉像个宗教场景. 很喜欢了~

I thought it was a college lecturer demonstrating modern forensic pathology techniques!

I love all of the 'physicians-in-waiting' observing the procedure, Hugo. As we call it in San Francisco (along with a time-honored parade to go along with it): "Happy Saint Stupid's Day" to you.

I can't understand why people like these auto inflicted pain. Unavoidable surgeries are just enough.
But let's look at it as a demonstration of the capacities of the X-100.

Like a thousand Bee's buzzing and stinging until the job is done. A nice 'theatre' shot Hugo, I'm sure she survived.

Major surgery indeed! I bet she has some scars to show for her trouble. ;–)

Haha, Happy April Fools! An amazing shot in that composition and light! Quite surreal with all the crowd watching. Fabulous and unnerving both!
