Friends. Photography. Adventure.


Another shot from my lovely friend The Photographer – thank you! This one made me smile when it hit my inbox as the glistening beads make it feel strangely reminiscent of one I took of another lovely fellow last summer. As I have written before, I do love it when you see little connections unintentionally forming between photos.
This photo has been sitting in my folder-in-waiting for a couple of months now, without a story to go with it. The two photos popped into my mind today as I plodded along on a long run, slowly and full of cold. It’s me who is training for a marathon now and today I thought, as I so often think when I feel the glorious bite of cold wind and the first raindrops my face, β€˜I bloody love winter running.’ I really could never train for a marathon in the summer heat.

Sinful Sunday

    Great shot of your beads of sweat. Your photo alone gets a mind racing
    I would die of heat exhaustion if I ever did any heavy outworks in the summer heat. blah. πŸ˜‰

    This is such a great photo of you! Your back and shoulders are gorgeous, and the B+W is stunning. I love sweat – especially if it’s from exertion – but you do make it look beautiful! Xxx

    Gorgeous image.

  10. Sex Is My New Hobby

    Very nice. I like the contrast – the image is so dark except for the glints in the droplets. And then there’s the lovely curve of shoulder and shadow.

    Lovely shot, I love the glimmer of the beads and the curve of your shoulder.

  12. The Photographer

    a lovely memory and sensual in the detail πŸ˜‰ x

    Lovely shot, the bright shimmer captured which contrasts so deliciously with the dark, shadowed tones is wonderful x

  14. HappyComeLucky

    I cant believe how absolutely stunning this looks. I certainly never look as amazing as that when I am covered in sweat. I love shoulders and this is beautiful.

    Gosh that is a gorgeous photo, so well done. I love the details, the darkness, the closeness, how I feel like I shouldn’t look, like it’s so exposed

    This is stunning! I love how dark it is, just the tiniest glitter of sweat is highlighted but the main image is shadow. It’s so rich. My favorite bit, though, is the partial profile we can see the strands of your hair in the background. It all works together to create a really powerful image.
