Crude and raw boxes

Candace Nirvana  - 081212
You knew before we got together
I held my deep-in compartments
only exposing those shallow ones
to please and open you.

My fear's reality opens you to see
the crude and raw boxes
filled with shards of cutting
glass and blood from nightmare's wounds.

You got the pretty items kept in storage -
the ones that keep the peace,
until they ran out
and I had no more to share.

Photo note.  Thanks to Candace Nirvana for going dark on this one.  Thanks to my new Diana F+ camera for making rougher than I thought and better than I wished.

  1. Wow! I love this!!! You + NUDE's beautiful last MUSE...what could be more exciting? The emotional depth here makes this the best of the work you two have done together.

    1. Carla - Thank you. Each model I work with is a unique gift that brings unique qualities to our work. Candace's gift is a unique mixture that brings quiet, power, and importance to the moment.

      I also have to give kudos to my crude camera I used to shoot this. The distortion, vignette, and grain it creates on the film helped make this image what it is. I only edited out some dust from the scan of the negative.

  2. Always a pleasure to see one of my favorite internet models. Especially in a well done image.

    Let me also thank your Diana F+ - for catching just a tinge of light on her lips. With the hunch forward looking as if to cover the breast. It makes the the exposure of the opening in the fabric a little more erotic by giving a hint of what is hidden by the darkness.

    1. D.L. - Candace is a treasure to create with. That little Diana is well worth its cheap price. It is very limited in what it can do, but enables the photographer to do so much with those limitations.


So,what are you thinking about?
