heat wave and sensuality

Mid' nineties Fahrenheit and super humidity for three days in a row, does it to you. Time to strip and take off unnecessary layers. I didn't have photo opportunities today, so for the spirit of the situation I threw some older pics I took onto the studio floor, and here they are...
The top two were part of an exhibition. The prints 20x30 inches, taken through a window reflecting clouds and trees as well. Hence the "cut off" head of the second one (I actually sold three of them for a fair price).
The lower two were taken in front of my studio a couple of summers ago, spontaneously. The girl then - is now a content mother-woman. Time flies by.

In general I love the human body, and I have no complicated puritanic mental blockage preventing me to record it, either in stone, paintings or photographs. Nudity should be surrounded by an aura of beauty and pride, nothing else will do.

Those are tasteful and beautiful images of the female body.

It also makes me realize how much weight I have to lose.

:sigh:

Thanks Nova - nice to hear that from a woman. And as for loosing your "winter-cushion", they will evaporate in the smoldering heat of summer...

send some heat our way! if i dressed like that you couldn't tell breasts from giant, shuddering goosebumps!! very elegant images. i find it's easier to show honest appreciation for the beautiful lines of the human body amongst artists. many others get all wierd or lewd on you. could have something to do with living in red-necked oil and cow country, i guess.

Cows are following me around, Fiddler - redneck or not.
Save your goosebumps for fall!
