    whats with the fascination of girls love picture taking ? (of themselves of course, and then sometimes other stuff)
    maybe they are just more visually oriented?

    because girls like to show pictures of themselves when they think they look good to get other people tell them they look good.
    taking pictures of other stuff is because that way girls feel arty and get have other people tell them they are arty (usually less attractive girls)
    also pictures are important to girls because they are visual memories of course of when they looked good

    No. No. No. This is not the issue.

    Why

    WHY

    WHY

    do so many girls have pictures of BUILDINGS AND FOOD in their galleries?

    No pictures of themselves

    No pictures of others

    Just

    pictures

    of

    buildings

    and

    food.

    whyyyyy. Someone please explain. I'm not trying to hate, I just really do not understand.

    Mike: those girls who has photos of building and food were perhaps more interested to show off their photography skill ...or their cooking skill, or just their unstoppable urge to eat ... oh, some like to show off their paintings too ...

    But the pictures aren't even good. They're usually poorly-lit closeups of food that you can get at any Chinese restaurant in the country. And the buildings...I mean, c'mon! What the hell is this?!

    Here's a good one: girls with dozens of pictures of celebrities in their galleries. Why. WHY. This is getting ridic.

    Hahahaha ... like I had said, but obviously no one read it, some of them likes to show off their cooking skill in photos, just to let you guys know she can be a housewife if you marry her ...

    ... as for the buildings ... hahaha .. they cannot find Lego ...

    ... as for the celebrities ... hahaha ... no one has put my photo in her album ... why?

    "like I had said, but obviously no one read it, some of them likes to show off their cooking skill in photos..."

    Nah I caught that man - but I'm pretty sure they're just pictures of food in actual restaurants, i.e. not food they cooked themselves. But I suppose I could be wrong.

    Regardless...

    Pets? Buildings? Food? Celebrities? Do they really think people want to look at these things when they're browsing peoples' profiles? I'm just going to start posting all kinds of random shit in my gallery. No I'm not. Jesus

    Haha. I have pics of buildings and food and animals and stuff on my profile. This is because I like taking photos :)

    You mean to say you'd rather look at bikini photos??
  • 外交猫
    外交猫 wrote:
    Hahaha, of course bikini photos are great. But fully clothed is good to. I think we're saying we just like pictures of actual human beings instead of random objects. And those human beings shouldn't be movie stars that don't have anything to do with the person.

    Personally I like travel photos too. If a girl has been to a legitimately interesting or beautiful place then I like to see that, because those things are worth sharing. But if it's just a picture of some random tree outside her apartment or some noodles or her dog, it's pretty damn boring.

    Morag - the pix on your profile are ten times better (more artistic, more dynamic) than most of the photography on girls' profiles. So if you took them then I'd say it's legit to post them because you have real skills. Most people do not have those kinds of skills.

    What should we put then? Not ourselves, not any objects...a display of all our ex-boyfriends so u could tell if u have a chance?

    Jon, u muttered about no half-naked pics of myself in my profile and u want girls who have them feel guity taking them.
  • Simen Stensvoll
    i like to take half-naked pics
    but i don't show them ,because some idiots would think im seducing them

    Sai Na, I think girls should definitely post pix of themselves, both sexy and normal pix. That's fine and that's what a profile is for. Anyone who disagrees with that is strange.

    Ex-bfs is OK too. Haha. At least that's interesting. :)

    "if a chick displays pets, foods, friends, herself, buildings etc etc. I think thats good.
    at least she isn't stuck on herself."


    Fair enough. The galleries full of Muppet-esque chicks with their little "V" signs make me want to stab a baby. But still. It's YOUR profile. It should have pictures of YOU. At least a few. Just a few. And then you can add pictures of pets, building or food to your heart's content.

    HA what a funny question..... We will probably never know the answer to this... Ask why Japanese tourists in Hawaii always take pictures of their friends posing while taking bites of ice cream and Shave ice treats........ Whats with the fad of throwing up a peace sign and making pouty lipped and puffy cheek faces in pictures....

    The answer to these questions is probably the same answer to the question asked in this post.... "Because they like to." that's it. It is not rocket science..... just picture taking. It may be funny to one who does not have the same fascination, but it all comes down to preference I guess........ I like pictures of people anyway. I just like them, but I also like many of the pictures people put of other things on their profiles. The pictures say things about their personality.

    Try looking deeper into what the picture is saying instead of merely looking at the image as just an image. It is actually a statement about the person who took the picture or placed the picture on his/her profile.

    What is the matter that girls take and upload photos?
    Is it a bad way to express your emotions?
    Is it a bad way to share your opinions of life,happiness of life,watever?
    Is it a bad hobby for girls to take ?
    And is it a bad way to entertain yourself?

    Done.

    I kinda prefer the mysterious artsy girls with the weird photos of feet and food. Sometimes the incessant self-shooters and amateur models are too zhuangbi.

    I hope you're heeding Kodi's advice, Mike. don't just look at the image as an image, okay. remember, somebody took that picture of that food, and it has a meaning that you aren't getting because you're only looking at it as an image. her soul is in that food! you just have to be sensitive enough to find it.

    no need for bikini pics, girls! thanks to kodi, the long-winded politically correct internet bicycle cop who zooms in to show us all how to be self-righteous mental pussies, us guys are all now able to appreciate the art in your pictures of random buildings.
  • Joakim Berg Solum
    Zhuangbi girls have their own purposes and sometimes it's pretty easy to find methods to exploit their zhuangbility. Gotta love em. Of course I refer to no one on these forums. Everyone here is awesome.

    Daaaamn, Conan. You cold, son! Hilarious.
  • Christian Jacques, Photography
    Hey guys, I think girls are just more artistic minded ! Most of the girls I know taking photos always amaze me with their delicate taste to take the details that you guys would not even see ( me included ! ) ... As everyone have now a camera at least in the phone, a picture is always worst thousand words, for anything you want to show, remember, share...
    Personally I love those photos of hands, legs, make-up, that girls ( should I say women ) take ! exciting.. sexy.. delicate art... hats.. dresses.. stocking.. half-naked.., thanks girls to share with us ! you look beautiful !

    @柯南: HAHA! That was a good one man.... If I was a bicycle cop I would shoot myself then I would hope to live through the first bullet so I could shoot myself again.

    I am glad we can all feel safe enough at home to sling insults at people we do not know through the internet..... Sounds like a hobby only a real man who is not at all politically correct, self-rightious, and definitely not a mental pussy would take pleasure in doing for fun.

    Thanks for your opinion.... I sometimes speak without thinking first also.

    Kodi,
    Yes, the internet, the great equalizer, allows me to insult you from the safety of my home, and yes, you could kick the shit out of me (but it wouldn't make you look very tough because I'm a skinny little guy) and yes, it is lame. I don't know you, so you shouldn't take it personally because I would say the same thing to anyone who does what you do.

    Why do I write these things? I do like to provide a little entertainment to the readers, but there's more. Sorry it has to be at your expense, but you're always preaching. I was brought up in a church. I'm a preachers kid. Hence, I hate preachers.
  • Christian Jacques, Photography
    hum..m why not admit that I like to see girls taking pictures of themselves...
    some are pleasant to see.. some are sexy.. well like everywhere some people are good at it and some are not... pictures of buildings ? I rarely notice only buildings.. the only girl I know who took buildings.. oh but she is architect ! he he :-)

    Watch out, ladies. I just got a DSLR and now think I'm a professional photographer even though I don't know what a single god damned dial on my camera does. After I buy some cheap ass lights and duct tape them to a silver umbrella to make a light studio, who wants to come over and do a nude photo shoot with me?

    haha, so many topics in this forum..

    for me, frankly speaking, I am not good at cooking, but not bad, and I don't want to show any photos about foods and my cooking skill to anybody, and don't want anybody like me or love me only because these or photos.  Even I cook good, the only person I love knows is ok. even arpatment, it is private space.. total in stranger's eyes, it is nothing, I think

    for pets, I don't have any pets, only myself.. haha. I am afraid I can not take care of it..

    so above all, I have to put my photos, haha..

    But to show the signs that they have equality life.
