Guttermonkey wants nudity! [Jun. 14th, 2007|02:44 pm]

But only to cheer me up, apparently. At least, that's what he said here. What a kind, caring, and selfless chap he is.

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 -

Road to Lake Ballard
The road to Lake Ballard.

View from the outskirts of the lake. You can see a couple of statues in this shot.


Lake Ballard
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.

I love it when nature gives us lines of colour like this. Whites and greens and reds and blues.


Lake Ballard
Naked and enjoying the sun, the red sand, and the view. I"ve been on salt lakes before, but never one this big.


Lake Ballard
This is a boy statue.

Another nude self-portrait - full frontal! Yes ladies, that's all real and hard as iron!


Lake Ballard
Dead grasshopper, with salt crystalising on its body.


Lake Ballard
The second best nude self-portrait I have ever taken. I'm the one on the right.


Lake Ballard
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!

This is why I drive, it gives me time to discover places like this and go there.

Glad you like them.

I love the photos, I've been to Kalgoorlie but that was almost 20 years ago. I love the lake crystals.

The crystals are fabulous. It's little details like that that I adore.

*blush* Thank you.

I like landscapes and I like human bodies. Landscapes are difficult but people are really hard to photograph. Especially when they are yourself and you're using a timer.

If you ever want to volunteer... *hint hint*

The lake is 50km from Menzies on a red dirt track that is surprisingly nice to drive on. Menzies is over 100km from Kalgoorlie. So middle of nowhere is right!

It seems that some of them were taken down. Pity, they're the ones everyone's been raving about.

This seems to happen with image shack from time to time - a bunch of pics will vanish for a week or two, only to reappear again later. A chunk of the missing pictures contain not the slightest hint of nudity, so I suspect it's just that again.

When I get back to Canberra after WorldCon (probably sometime around 10th Sept), if they aren't back up I'll try to fix them all.
