Again if you read my objection was with the excuses.
See, this is what I don't understand. You're still saying "excuses." That word doesn't fit the circumstances. An excuse is a made-up reason that isn't the real reason, like "The dog ate my homework." An excuse is intended to fool the listener. The issuer of an excuse doesn't believe that it was the real reason but hopes the listener will. So making an excuse is dishonest. That's why it's insulting to keep saying Kellyrae made excuses.
And where are the excuses? I mean, what are you referring to? The picture is blurry. K'rae says it's blurry because it was taken in darkness with a small camera and she couldn't get close without freaking the subjects. Are those excuses? They sure sound like real reasons to me. Or where she says the Tenderloin is a dangerous area, is that what you're calling an excuse? What would it be an excuse for? For not taking a big expensive camera there? No, it'd be a good reason for that. Or is being female a mere excuse for avoiding tough neighborhoods? Maybe it's a good reason to avoid them. If it's an excuse, what's the hidden real reason that it covers for?
This is the nicest thing you've said yet. Apart from it, you have a hell of a way of welcoming a new member.
