In most recent years Eroticon has co-incided with my birthday weekend and this has often allowed me the chance to take pictures in the hotels I stay in for the weekend.
This always makes me excited because I love hotel bathrooms. The mirrors and the lighting afford endless opportunities for photos with repeating images and they always spark my creativity.
Today is day before my 62nd birthday.
I am viewing my body with a photographer’s eyes as I create this image. I am also viewing it internally with kinder eyes than I used to. I am noting what I like. I am noting that my body can give me and my love pleasure. That it is strong and fit and loved. That it carried and grew four children and you can see the space they created inside me for that purpose still echoing in my pouchy stomach.
I am noting too that life is short and precious and is best spent with people I love doing things that bring me joy.
So on my birthday eve I offer this picture as a celebration of life, of love and of the bodies that carry us through them.
