Is there a way to have a self indulgent plug about another website, and have no one notice?
What if I include a photo of a plug?
What if I come up with a way of rating how much of “a plug”, “a plug” is. (Obviously the highest score would be an actual electrical plug)
What if I said that the editor of this fair blog had a website that was a collection of photography, and other creative endeavors? If I said that website was found here at andymackay.org.uk, would any one notice such a blatant plug?
Or would it be as subtle as a Church Treasurer explaining that the church needs more money?
Christmas time is just around the corner. Sorry to point it out, but Christmas is nearly here. Have you brought Christmas Cards yet? If not, can I suggest* this card featuring Exeter Cathedral in a rare wintery moment.
As well as supporting a local Devon photographer, you’d also be helping to keep the Church Sofa running smoothly!
This card is available from redbubble.com

*When I say suggest, what I mean is that I made a Christmas card**
**And this is a really blatant plug. (I think I’m) Sorry about that.
From Luke Chapter 1 (The Message Translation)

Love this image from curiousanimal.com, they have this to say about it:
“Pedro Luna, also known as Jesus Tricolor, puts on his ‘crown of thorns’ in front of a flag of the Santa Cruz football team. He’s known for dressing up like Jesus Christ wearing the colours of the football team. He says its not just about the outfit, he wants to pass a message of peace to other fans of the club in Recife, Brazil.”

The Huffington Post have found a series of photographs from a photographer seeking to ask, What Would Characters From The Bible Really Look Like?
Plenty of films have taken a stab at bringing Bible stories to life, from “The Ten Commandments” and “Jesus Christ: Superstar” to this year’s “Son of God” and “Noah.” But despite those movies’ different genres and tones, these films all tend to share one similarity: They have white casts, even though the Bible’s characters would have been from parts of Africa or the Middle East. Photographer James C. Lewis ofNoire3000 | N3K Photo Studios has decided to rectify by presenting these iconic figures in a new light.
Lewis’ “Icons Of The Bible” photo series depicts some of the most famous characters from the Old and New Testament exclusively as people of color, including Simon Peter, Elijah, King Solomon and the archangel Gabriel. The series, which will be fully released in October, features 70 models who identify as either Asian, Native American, Hispanic, African, Middle Eastern, Black American and West Indian.
“I think it is very important to see one’s self in the Scripture so that it may become real in their eyes,” Lewis told The Huffington Post. “The whitewashing of the Bible has always bothered me. However I’m happy to now have the opportunity to give a different point of view.”
With Simon Peter looking more like a clean cut preacher than a fisherman, I can help but wonder if this is a Hollywood vision of Bible Characters?
