The Gallery - Body Parts

Determined to get back into the swing of things, the weekly photography feature from Tara of Sticky Fingers I thought would be a good start. Having not participated since the summer I was looking forward to it but was stuck as to what to post. The theme this week was 'Body parts'.

I can't make decisions when there are so many options to save my life so it was actually pretty tough. Then I saw the beautiful Sian's post and it hit me.

I used to be a big fan of body parts. Well, putting needles through them anyway. I loved all forms of body art and modification, having no problem expressing myself and having fun with it.
So when I started nursing, I had to grow up a little bit. I had also become aware that my piercings were putting out the wrong impression and that some people didn't take me seriously purely for the metal in my face. The time had come for me to say good bye to my beloved piercings.

"Pin Cushion"


I do love this picture. It reminds me of when I was happy with how I looked, and that I can look nice. As I'm loosing more and more weight I'm starting to see this person again, which makes me a very happy bunny indeed. I'm trying not to look at the old pictures and get depressed, instead they are my inspiration. Will I ever be this person again? No, I will be better.


  1. You're lovely just the way you are. You'd have me at hello x

  2. I'd like to tell you what I think of this photo, but I'm married & I could get in trouble... :)
