This image was first posted back in March 2014 along with a piece about lingerie for Kink of the Week. I remember the day I took it clearly. It was February and one of the first really nice days of the year with bright winter sunshine and clear crisp blue skies that I just couldn’t resist. With camera in hand and lingerie tucked in my bag I set off. The original photograph definitely captured the blue skies but nothing could capture the bitter wind that whipped across the fields up to this bench. That image is definitely good but I think I have fallen in love it a great deal more with this wet plate edit.
I love what it has done to the clouds and how the shape of me and the shape of the clouds seem to be mirroring each other and the sepia tones give it a bit of a vintage movie feel too, like I am some sort of damsel in distress. Sometimes re-editing completely changes a image, definitely the case here, and sometimes that also changes how I feel about it and that is also the case here as I much prefer this version to the original.
