Enjoying the afternoon heat despite the clouds.
There’s something about the West Highland solitude, the grandeur of its rugged landscape, the peace of its deserted beaches, that kind of lends itself to some outdoor nudity. I just hope anyone in that cottage wasn watching me through binoculars…
As a regular contributor to this meme, I am not unaccustomed to taking photos of myself. I have, on a number of occasions, managed to include my camera in my photos, such as here and here. This was, however, the first time I have taken a photo of my camera, taking a photo of me as I was taking a photo of it.
Anyway, I hope you like it.
Sticking very loosely to the diptych idea of a couple of weeks back, when you discover a nice, remote and shady glade in a forest, it would almost be rude not to strip down and take a couple of photos while enjoying the peaceful solitude.
As I mentioned last week, I was digging through my old images for inspiration. In the process, I found these, which just happen to be the first naughty photos I ever took. Long before I was kilted Wookie, long before I had a blog, long before I even had a digital camera or a camera on my mobile phone, I had a crappy low-res webcam and a lady-friend who expressed an interest in “seeing the goods before she sampled them”. The images, as you can see, will never win any awards for their quality, nor for the merits if any of their composition, but the woman in question liked what she saw and went on to enjoy them a number of times up close and in person.
I am not the most artisticly minded (nor gifted) preson in the world so when Molly announced this month’s prompt, I’ll admit I scratched my head, shrugged my shoulders and basically had no idea how I would approach it. Flicking back through some of my old images, I stumbled upon one of me, reflected in the mirrored doors of the bathroom cabinet, almost perfectly bisected by the gap between the doors, and an idea began to take shape.
The result was what you see now. To be honest, I’m still not actually 100% certain whether or not it meets the prompt definition or not, but I’m not going to worry too much about that.
