Friends. Photography. Adventure.

Summer came calling…

The Dandelion’s pallid tube
Astonishes the Grass,
And Winter instantly becomes
An infinite Alas —

The tube uplifts a signal Bud
And then a shouting Flower, —
The Proclamation of the Suns
That sepulture is o’er.

Emily Dickinson

How glorious is it when you feel the sun on your naked skin for the first time after the long cold dark months? Today I snoozed, leafed through the papers and played with dandelions. It’s still only spring, but today it felt like summer came calling to remind us what joy there is to come…


Sinful Sunday

    This might be one of my favourite photos ever. Not just of yours, but *ever*.
    The shadow is AMAZING. Like a beautiful nipple.
    You’ve captured the delicate nostalgia of summery days.
    I’m quite emotional over here…

    Yes, yes indeed, I LOVE this weather. It makes me want to get out and explore and lay about in the garden and enjoy the feel of the sun on my skin

    I have always loved dandelion pictures, and this one is no exception. Hehe, I too see a nipple in the shadow.

    What a lovely shot! And I agree, the sun feels amazing on naked skin!

    As ever a beautifully taken image. The thoughts of fun summery afternoons walking through a sun swept meadow, plucking dandelions and frolicking with gay abandonment. Fantastic xxx

    When I first glanced at the image on twitter I thought the shadow was a nipple! Great image but then you know I have a soft spot for dandelions!

    Lovely image, as lovely as the sunny, summer weather of the weekend!

  16. John Brownstone

    What a striking image, lovely.

  17. mariasibylla

    Oh my God! This is amazing! It’s sexy and summer and a little bit of a mind bender (because the shadow is an existential nipple) and the curve of your shoulder! And the blue, fluffy clouded sky! I just love it.

  18. Stella

    Fantastic shot!
