I always find some difficulty in settling upon categories when organising my photos. You know; waterfalls, wildlife, cityscapes, portraits, nudes etc etc.

When recently processing a few landscapes, the term phallic symbolism sprung to mind. What do you think? Appropriate? Or would you think 'roots and rocks' would be better?

Hmmm...thought you would have gotten some answers by now.  You've really given us a hard one here.

Is this a real question or are you just dicking around?

First the Thai lady boys and now this.   Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Ray, just curious if you used a tripod or not.  You'd think it would be the opposite but I find with these kinds of subjects my compositions usually turn out kind of stiff if I hand-hold.

I think the Kodachrome Basin is at least as phallic as the Far East:

Don't forget Ka-ule-o-Nănăhoa, on the island of Moloka'i, a legendary fertility stone...

Rock formations and tree roots. Oh! You mean the location.

The first two from the left were taken on the island of Koh Samui in Thailand. Unfortunately, the lighting wasn't too good. The others are all of the ruins of Ta Prohm in the Angkor Wat vicinity.

Not necessarily! Panopeeper's rock formation has the advantage of much more interesting lighting, but have you got a rock formation like this, Gabor?

The Kodachrome Basin is a horny area:

No, I think Ray's last shot is more miss than member.

For cross reference purposes, Gordon. One simple category is often not sufficient to find quickly the precise image one is searching for.

But I understand what you mean. I'm not particularly serious with this question   .

I can't really find anything in my personally archives that goes completely with this theme, but I have stumbled upon a series I was working on a few years ago. This type of work can get a bit hairy if not kept trim in the first place, so I've kept it to just a few images. I would imagine a showing side by side with some of the images in this thread could be arousing in the right circumstances or at least fill in the gap to an otherwise knotty subject matter. I've named this series " the vagina monologs"

Interesting shapes and formations. I'm reminded of the following shot taken a couple of years ago near Angkor Wat, which in turn reminds me of the recent movie, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button", based on the short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
