Friends. Photography. Adventure.


FullSizeRenderAll week I have been working in hot dusty villages and factories. It has been 35 – 40 degrees and sticky humid. In other words, weather for floaty dresses and spaghetti straps. Except here I have to wear the shalwar kameez. The shalwar (pantaloons) hide the shape of my legs, the kameez (body shirt) must be long to ensure I am not seen to be flashing my genitals, and the orna scarf is an extra layer to ensure the shape of my breasts is not visible. When I get back to my air conditioned room in the city all I want to do is strip off and leap onto the cool white sheets with abandon!

Sinful Sunday


  1. How fun! Great picture set.

  2. Now, that was cool! (no pun intended)

  3. Haha, so much fun! I love the story line in the photos

  4. Ah, the wonders of air conditioning. This is a great set of photos – I can actually feel how cool the room and sheets are.

    Yes! We did the same thing a couple of years ago in a hotel, but we were afraid the people in the room below us might complain… 😉 ~C

  6. Love this! Nothing better than bouncing on a giant bed! Your photos convey such freedom and joy.

  7. I have the biggest smile on my face from looking at this! It’s just pure, awesome joy! 🙂

  8. Pure naked joy! So perfectly you.

    Know exactly what that feels like.

  10. What an original set of images and love the narrative that goes with them that really brings to life the fresh and cool feeling of being in the room. xx

  11. These look like a lot of fun. Although, I definitely want to say I love the shalwar kameez. So pretty!

  14. I LOVE these image, the joy, the freedom, the fun, just everything about them is perfect

  15. Hiding the genitals is a pretty critical aspect of clothing, no?? Lol fantastic pics, btw. Truly superb!

  16. oh i want to know how you took those amazing shots E40!!!

    • Nothing special! I just placed the camera on the TV stand in front of the bed and put it on 10 second timer. Then I leapt around a bit! Xx

        It was special to many of us, nice to look at again on Mother’s Day as a reminder, that mothers still like to have fun too !! 😉

        • Haha. Well I’m not a Mum but my Mum friends are a *lot* of fun! When I said it was nothing special I meant there was no clever techniques involved – just a simple self-timer and jumping! I was pleased with them – they made me laugh!

      • sure, sure make it sound simple!!!

  17. Simply fabulous !!! Poetry in . . . slow . . . motion! Just wonderful!!!

  19. I love how you’ve captured motion in these–fantastic!

  20. So fun! I particularly like the sober establishing shot – the contrast/context really adds to the other photos, like a pinch of salt to enhance the sweet.

  21. Haha! This are great!
    I scrolled back a few times, I had to see those again!!

  22. Your photos are so fun and playful. I dread summer and the hot sticky weather. Looking at your photos remind me of how amazing it feels to strip off the clothes and relax naked on the bed while the A/C cools me down. 🙂

  23. Two words: Wild Abandon. And you, my friend, embody that in more ways than just this set of pics, I think. I love your wholeheartedness about everything (sex, life, being 40, running, wine, family, etc) and these pictures totally embody that. I get that they are also about being cool after being hot – the joy! – and about throwing off oppressive clothes and oppressive heat all at once – but I think they are also a metaphor for you, in a way. 🙂

  24. These shots are so sexy, and so much fun! I’m glad you are able to cut loose when you are behind closed doors. That you have shared your playful alone time with us makes me even gladder. Wonderful post!
