I tweeted a version of this image a couple of weeks ago but this is the shot I was saving for the blog. Here I am, naked, looking out over the countryside from a beautiful cabin nestled in the trees, camera at the ready. Yes, I am definitely in my element.
If you follow me on Twitter you may well ha e seen me tweeting photos from a gorgeous cabin near Epping Forest.
It’s no secret that one of my favourite things to do is organise amazing outdoor photography adventures. Booking that place way back in the darkest hardest days of January was the best idea. Having that to think about and look forward to has been one of my lights at the end of this very long and very dark tunnel we’ve been in
It was chillier than I would have liked (especially at night!) and the forest was way busier than when I’ve been before but chilling out in beautiful surroundings was a tonic. It feels a very long time since I whiled away time just staring at a view and reading a whole book in a day. It was a luxury.
On Friday afternoon @19syllables and I spent a gorgeous couple of hours sat around Honey’s fire pit drinking tea and eating cake. 19s promptly started fishing skeleton leaves out of the pond and laying them out of dry.
“If I fall in you’re not allowed to laugh,” she said. “If you fall in I will laugh so hard I’ll let out a little bit of wee,” I replied. She didn’t fall in. I took a dried leaf away and promised to do a photo with it.
There’s been so much ‘this time last year’ chat this week, offline and online. One whole year! It’s so strange reflecting on the past 12 months and all the things that have and haven’t happened.
It also means that it’s a year since I started my distancing diaries photo project. Had I known that it would reach 122 daily images before I signed off for the summer of freedom, I may not have started it, but I’m very glad I did. Once the winter lockdown season kicked in I moved on to my Scenes on Screens project.
I’ve been very happy to have these two projects this last year but this weekend I’ve been plotting two photo adventures for later in April when we have more freedom and I am so excited for being out and about with real people in locations that aren’t my flat or my computer screen.
And before you know it, here we are at the end of February. February Photo Fest is closed for another year.
As ever, it was nice to have something creative go focus on during this cold grey month – even more so this year. I’m happy I managed to get the usuals spirit of collaboration into my month, by using archive photos and through my Scenes on Screens week, although I hope hy next year I’ll be able to do the usual in person photo adventures. Thank you to everyone who took part and allowed me to grace the pages of this blog with their naked forms.
This is the last shot in my close ups and unusual angles week. Do you know what you’re looking at?
The final shot in my Scenes on Screens week features The Barefoot Sub who I first at Eroticon in 2019. Back then we briefly talked about doing some photos but we live a long way from each other and so it’s never happened. But like I said earlier in the week, the joy of this project is being able to photograph people who aren’t local to me and a few weeks back I got to hang outline with her and watch her tie her legs. I hope when ‘all this’ is over we get to do some photographs in real life as she has some incredible landscapes near her. Do check out her site for some fabulous photos in the wild.
“It’s on your face that I’m gonna sit You can wiggle, you can jiggle your tongue on my clit.” You Suck, Consolidated featuring The Yeastie Girls
If you don’t know this song then have a listen and then imagine university era Exposing40 and her friends, drunk on cider, tearing up the dance floor and yelling every word of this song as if their lives depended on it. Happy days!
This photo was taken on a happy day too. I’m looking forward to his face between my thighs as soon as it’s possible. I don’t think I’ll need to shout those words at him as angrily as The Yeastie Girls do though – he’s far more enthusiastic than the dude in that song!
