OMG!!! You're KIDDING, right? How can you even THINK such a thought? Who do you think you are, anyway? AWilliam Wegman protege but since Weimeriners are already taken as models being put in strange tableaus, a baby might do the trick? What - are you going to have a BUNCH of babies so you can make group scenes like Wegman does???

Would this image of Wegmans:



Inspire you to do THIS to your baby, all in the name of fame???




You are a BAD man, J-ung! Very bad - to even THINK about putting your baby in the oven. WHat are you - some sort of HITLER!!!???

It's probably a 5 on a 1-to-10 scale of stupid things rock climbing parents do. The following has got to be at least an 8:

That photo is from Gregg Epperson, pro photographer, and is shown on his website, as seen above, just fyi.

I don't remember where I've seen the other photos, but having seen the other photos it seems apparent that it is photo-shopped. Well, maybe this one is real, but from what I've seen it is just as easily not.

It's entirely possible the rope-bag version is the Photoshop and the baby version is real.

Agreed. It would be odd(understatement) for a pro photographer to include a work with that type of photoshop effect on their website. With or without a disclaimer identifying the modification.

Nope! Since even Epperson won't fess up, it remains open to conjecture. Frankly, both versions, baby and rope bag, appear Photoshopped, IMHO.

So if the rock is bad and you don't have a extra helmet, then for sure the climber should wear the kid?!

Call me crazy, but I think I'll belay with the kid on my back instead. And I'll just take a few steps back from the wall in case something pops off.

If for some reason (and it would have to be a very very good reason) there was no option but for one of them to have the baby I'd also go for the belayer. The child's head is below the level of the adult so if a rock fell there is a chance that the belayer (with helmet!) would cop it instead of the kid, and as the climber looks lighter than the belayer and is on top rope, the belayer should not get pulled around even if she fell, whereas the climber could easily swing and have the child hit the wall.
Neither is a good idea, but in an emergency I'd keep the child on the ground.

Yep, and that's really a shame. If an artist can't make jokes who can?

Maybe a comedian, I suppose.

And why on earth would he admit anything? The image is for sale and every time it's brought up it drives people to his site.
