There was a time when I would never have considered using photographs of myself when blogging. Last year, on the SL Naturist site, that changed. The use of hats, soft focus, a bit of post-production, left me confident enough to allow my own photos to be used. With my face largely disguised, I even appear topless!
Granted, I’m not about to give you a full-frontal nude of myself, grinning widely (although, Lord knows, there are plenty of those in the home albums). But I’m more confident about my naturism in real life now. How do we change attitudes to naturism unless we declare it, show it, express the beauty of it?
My husband is a much better photographer than I am, with a much better camera as well, and he captured these shots within the last hour of me by the pool while the children (cropped out) are in the water. They have all the necessary armbands on, and I’m standing guard…just in case either should get into difficulty.
Hopefully both shots demonstrate the beauty of family naturism and life as it should be lived.
