Having an extra day in February really messes with having four themed weeks doesn’t it? But then @19syllables reminded me of my trampolining photos from last summer. Hurrah! So here I am leaping for joy at our extra day! Shame the sky doesn’t look like this today!
Thank you to everyone who has commented on and shared and laughed along with my sometimes ridiculous photos. And biggest thanks to all the participants in my February Photo Fest for getting so enthusiastically involved – I definitely couldn’t have done it without you! <cue the the music> <dabs eyes>
Wednesday was naughty netballer, today is awesome arse. I may not be tired of the photography but my title tank is running on empty. Day seven of sports week is baseball and for your viewing pleasure may I present the wonderful Exhibit A.
As you might expect from a sports junkie like EA, he had some pretty fab ideas for my sports week prompt. Some of which haven’t even been taken yet so who know, maybe there’ll be another sports week next year? As someone who truly thinks golf is the most boring game in the world I didn’t expect to have my mind changed but with some expert positioning he even managed to make that game super hot. One of the photos is being used for Kayla’s next Masturbation Monday prompt.
Then he knocked it out of the park with this one. I must confess, until a couple of days ago I was intending to use that photo because it’s so amazing I wanted it on my site too. But I was overlooking a couple of others we shot at the same time so in the spirit of sharing as much of that day’s productivity as possible, here’s a new photo for you to admire.
For Throwback Thursday on sports week, here is a photo that first appeared way back in the summer of 2015, shortly before I was lucky enough to be at the Wimbledon men’s final. Yay ballot! Photo was taken by the marvellous Molly Moore. Ah, look at that sun shining on me!
Interdependency: the quality or condition of being interdependent, or mutually reliant on each other.
Just three more days of February Photo Fest left and what a daft month it’s been here on Exposing40. Normally by the end of February I’m hanging out for it to all be over but not this month – I’m really going to miss it!
Maybe this is because I was organised (all bar one photo was taken by the end of January) but actually I think it’s because it’s been so much bloody fun posting the photos every morning and laughing at all the responses to them through the day.
This month was without doubt entirely dependent on the sense of humour and goodwill of my friends. Exposing40 would not be what it is without joyful collaboration. I hope all the people who grace these pages know they can depend on me and this little space for continuing ridiculous antics and rambunctious celebration of bodies.
I’m not sure I can really stretch to calling hula hooping a sport, but hey I’m sure none of you mind! The outtakes from these photos are truly ridiculous! There are waaaaay more shots of my wobbly bits in motion than there are of the actual hoop moving. But I got there in the end!
I’m totally breaking the February Photo Fest rules here. All photos are meant to be of you or be photos you have taken. These rules have been flexed a little at times for practical reasons and some images have been taken by the models at home and in their own time. They were at least specifically intended for this month’s endeavour though.
Not this one. This is a holiday photo taken by Mr Haiku. But it’s Monday (again!), the weather is still miserable and this winter is lasting for fucking ever. So here’s a little summery joy for your timelines for today’s sports week swimming shot.
We’re in the last week of February Photo Fest and my final theme is sport. Yesterday I kicked the week off (and marked the fifth anniversary of my blog) with a naked run in the woods.
Today we have the turn of another photo I’ve been itching to share. This golf tee/ball/club combination has already made an appearance a couple of times over at The Other Livvy’s place but today it’s being gripped between butt cheeks not lips. Today the golfing play has moved to Honey’s bunker but I’m sure you’ll agree it’s another hole in one for these props!
Five years ago today I published my first post. Exactly three hundred posts later (I didn’t aim for a round number for my anniversary, that’s just chance!) here I land at the ‘wood’ anniversary.
So to celebrate five years and to kick off sports week on my February Photo Fest here’s a photo of me running naked in the woods. Ordinarily I’d write some long wafflely words about what a ride it’s been and how much all you folk mean to me, but I have a four-year-old niece who wants to see some dinosaurs so I need to dash!
Here’s to five more years. Will I need to change my name to Exposing50?
Today’s album cover is The Strokes and Is This It. Why doesn’t that album have a question mark? Whatever the answer is, the person we have rocking this look is @19syllables and one thing we know for sure is that nobody ever says ‘is this it?’ when she gets her butt out!
So, the eagle-eyed among you will realise I’ve gone slightly off brief here. You see, this is meant to be album cover week and Fat Bottomed Girls by Queen was a single not an album. But having trawled five years of archives for today’s Throwback Thursday I realised that I hadn’t once done an album-themed photo. So a single it has to be!
