In Repose

A couple of weeks ago, Exposing40 and I explored a cemetery. You can see one of the images from that day here

Exposing40 is a wonderful photographer and so much fun to have an adventure with. I’m totally spoilt for choice with images to use from the day but I’ve managed to select one.

I love this image. It speaks to me in so many ways. It feels right to share today.

In repose amongst the jumble of the graveyard.

  1. Lovely, you and the background!

  2. I love photos in churches or cemeteries – all types but particularly nude ones. Just something so right about the scene.

  3. For me, cemeteries have a strange energy to them that I find curiously seductive, which is odd given, in them, you’re surrounded by death.

    This image also has that quality to it, I can see why you picked it, it;s really beautiful

  4. As a fellow lover of cemeteries I find this image quite powerful. Cemeteries are places I’ve often gone to when in a contemplative mood, and your relaxed upward looking pose suggests something of the same. I find the idea of being sensually alive in a place where death is the focus quite empowering! There is something of the idea of death and the maiden in this. Visually and tactilely I appreciate the juxtaposition of your pale curves against the hard dark scratchy stone.

  5. One word… well two actually… Salvador Dalí.

  6. Delicious. Love that pose, exposed to the elements, open and relaxed.

  7. Ohhhh cemeteries and graveyards are so my thing and this image makes me want to go and find one and tuck myself away in some quiet corner and commune with death. That probably sounds weird but I actually find them hugely arousing…. as I find this picture to also be
