Just pondering naked thoughts.
A friend recently had some absolutely amazing photographs taken by a professional photographer of her naked - they're really arty and stylish, and they appear to be for his portfolio rather than his own private porn collection.
I'm not giving out links, so please don't ask :)
They're so great that they've inspired me to recreate them in a drawing and get one framed for her for her next birthday. Given that I'm a total sloth and haven't drawn anything since the age of 15, that's pretty impressive for a lazy cow like me.
I also discovered some amazing photographs of my great aunt - she used to be a clothes model, and she was absolutely gorgeous and glamorous and naturally very stylish. Sadly, she passed away before I had any idea that she was ever a model of any sort, so I never got to talk to her about it. She was too modest, I guess. Or older folk just don't talk about these things, maybe.
My brother-in-law drew a gorgeous picture of my sister when she used to be an underwear model too. Maybe it runs in the family?!
I do have a point. I'm naturally quite shy about these sort of things, and I don't think I'm very photogenic either - in particular, I hate my face most of the time.
How would you immortalise yourself? Would you get drawings or photographs done somewhere privately, and insist on having the negatives?
I realise this is a pretty egotistical thread, and I do apologise - but seeing these two fantastic women in their prime just made me think *what if / what if never*, if that makes any sense. Don’t get me wrong, I’m no underwear or clothes model, but I just think I’ve gained a much better sense of their personalities now, and I’m worried about dying and just appearing to be a grey old woman to everyone who knew me. Pah!
