SPC: Nude


So, this month's Self-Portrait Challenge theme is nude, which is a pretty tall order for one's second month of playing along. Lukily, I'm not too inhibited...but now that I have an etsy site that I link to from and to my blog, it seems like the whole world might be seeing my nude self-portrait...however, if you followed along with this adventure, I guess you've already seen my nude back, which is not that revealing, but is perhaps too risque for some.


So here goes. I had big plans of stripping to take photos in my back yard, taking advantage of the CLOUDY weather we've been having for EVER, but my back door neighbor apparently had plans to mow his lawn ALL DAY. (It is a big lawn.) So, I sat with my curtains closed but still letting in a bit of the light. Not quite the "one with nature" imaging I was hoping, but there's something about the soft light through the grassy window panels that makes me really happy.
Also, I must admit, I feel a little America's Next Top Model while I was taking these shots. I could hear Tyra saying that what I need is more time in front of a mirror learning what poses make me look long and not awkward. Ah, Tyra...

More nudes here.
