You have some crazy parties going on in your tub. Love the tiara and the ducky. Welcome back to DPC!

Actually, that is a Ruger .40S&W, the P91DC, to be precise. Not only is it my favorite, its the most accurate I own. Just to clarify. =D [/quote]

This is what I meant to quote. Sorry its late and i've had way too much rum.

I love her already, btw Leroy very nice shot. I'm partial to .45's myself.

But you got 8 x 2, 5 x 3 and 15 x 4 Voters for the "tsk tsk OMG it's a Gun who gives a ---- for the photography" crowd :(
PS: You left out a description of the most important prop ;) Looks like a DA 9mm but which one, there are thousands. Either that or its a MIC Toy.

Very cool image. Really wonderful dof.

Hmmmm not seeing that as an oxymoron.

Friendly Murder
Enemy Wife
Live to Kill

Just talking out loud but those titles might suit the image better (just my opinion)

I just went and looked on several oxymoron lists and there it was but I don't get it. LOL

Great Idea. I'm giving this a score on the basis of the photography and conceptualisation although the inclusion of Rubber Ducky is dubious. I'm sure a lot of voters will vote it down due their dislike of firearms.
