Friends. Photography. Adventure.


This is not really a sexy or sinful photo! But my blog is also a bit of diary of my antics and adventures with friends and so this shot is getting a placemarker.

I’ve got into outdoor swimming over this last year (yeah yeah, me and 4 million other middle aged women!) and I slip into rivers and lakes whenever I can. So far I’ve remained accident-free, but my luck ran out last Sunday when my coccyx hit a rock on the way into a river in Wales.

The progress of the bruise has been deeply fascinating, from a neat little circle of purple last weekend to the mass of colour it is now. I’ll be back with another amazing tree shot next weekend but for now I’m posting my posterior for posterity!

Sinful Sunday

    OMG … that’s far worse than I’ve seen after any of my sessions … and I’m sure must have been far more painful!!!
    But it’s such a lovely shape and colour isn’t it, and makes for a very impressive photo !!!

    This is so incredibly beautiful, but also giving me shivers of sympathy pain. I love your adventurous spirit!

    I still wince when I see it.. hope it didn’t hurt too much x

    Ouch! I’m surprised you didn’t break your coccyx. Or did you? It looks so painful. Hope you heal soon.

    Only you! But it has left you with some beautiful colouring.

    The heart shape bruise from near the beginning was so pretty and like you said reminded me of the Care Bears… but wow that has bloomed into quite something. I hope it is not too painful.
