  1. It’s art Mohib – Tunick is an amazing photographer and that’s his niche

  2. Amazing art! Are children allowed to go see their mommies and dads taking the air without clothes? Reminds me of the joke:

    Two guys are sitting on a bar stool. One starts to insult the other one. He screams, “I slept with your mother!” The bar gets quiet as everyone listens to see what the other weasel will do. The first again yells, “I SLEPT WITH YOUR MOTHER!”

    The other says, “Go home dad you’re drunk.”

    Anyways. I’m not sure if any of my remarks are relevant here…

    I love this blog, wonderful Miami -and of course- your Mojito Reviews lol. Keep up the great work!

  3. Hey again Mohib, thanks for the compliments. The day of the shooting is chaotic with all kinds of crews and people running around (and yes, many naked) – I’m sure mommies would understand that the kids would get in the way that day – (very cute with your joke) 😀
