Still Life

This image has had quite a life.

I originally kept it hidden in my image folder for a fairly long time as it inspired complex feelings in me but eventually posted it back in 2015 (Contrasts) with an explanation of the feelings it had inspired in me.

Then the image was transformed by the amazing Tabitha Rayne who sent her beautiful artwork to me as a gift. Last year a photograph taken by me of that artwork by Tabitha was used as the cover-art for the Eroticon Anthology, Identity.

And now here is the original photograph again for Throwback Thursday. When I looked at editing it again I played around with a few different ideas but eventually gave up because nothing made it any better than it already was but I had come to love this shot so much that I returned to it again just recently and decided to see if maybe doing something really bold might work. I think the answer is most definitely yes don’t you?triptych wet plate image of mollys bottom with blue aqua tonesFebphotofest badge 2018

I knew I recognised it but couldn’t place where. It’s such a sexy shot!
