Back in September I posted Part 1 followed up by Perseverance a week later. They were essentially a before and after part of a single whip strike across my bottom. At the time I took more than just those two images but posted those as they really felt like a matching pair. However there was one more image that I got that day which I absolutely love.
I think the light in this is glorious; The way it plays over parts of my body, hip, calve, feet and that evil red welt highlighting them in the image and how the rest of me lingers or vanishes into the shadows makes for a beautiful study of shape and form
However the best thing about this image is the memories it brings back and that even though that welt is long gone it is preserved here for me to look at and remember.
