In order to encourage his goal, I present the pics I've been meaning to put up for ages - My trip to Lake Ballard. The original post talking about the day is here if you want some context.
A bunch of these photos just up and vanished off imageshack, hence some having links, some not. The odd thing is a chunk of what vanished was non-nudes - go figure.
Probably NSFW -
The road to Lake Ballard.
View from the outskirts of the lake. You can see a couple of statues in this shot.
One of the 50+ statues scattered around the area. All were based on laser scans of local people. This is a lady statue.
Close-up view of the texture of the salt lake. I love the look of the crystals. Some sections were pure salt, others were more like this.
Dead emu(?) with statue in the distance. Skeleton was so far gone it was hard to tell, but pretty certain it was emu. Thought it looked great as it was, so didn't want to disturb the bones to try and figure it out for certain.
Edge of the lake
I love it when nature gives us lines of colour like this. Whites and greens and reds and blues.
Naked and enjoying the sun, the red sand, and the view. I"ve been on salt lakes before, but never one this big.
This is a boy statue.
Another nude self-portrait - full frontal! Yes ladies, that's all real and hard as iron!
Dead grasshopper, with salt crystalising on its body.
The second best nude self-portrait I have ever taken. I'm the one on the right.
The best nude self-portrait I have ever taken. Worked out way better than expected.
Looking at distant friends.
So few women will let me photograph them this way - must remember to send her a copy of the shot!
