tragic by DoNotAttempt tragic by DoNotAttempt
I ended up going in too deep and i lost my skirt to the bottom of the river. :( it was tangled in my legs, so i got to choose between my life, or keeping the skirt attached to my (soon to be dead) body. i, obviously, choose life. but it's okay that i lost my skirt, because i have wanted to take a picture like this even before i got a camera... so whatever. i'm happy.

the shutter was actually fired by my boyfriend, but everything else (angle, framing, exposure, pose, costume, etc.) was set up by me, so it is my photograph. i just didn't want to destroy my remote in the water.

This picture moves me so much (the square version is so much better)... I just hate this comment for being so poor, and drowned in other people words. But just to say, I'm not touched this often.
I just love it. And I don't say "love" much either.

First of all, I love this photograph.
Secondly, I think it in a way romanticizes the whole ordeal that you lost your skirt...The photograph looks as if you were diving to lose it. Not in a sexual manner that is but just it offered a sort of freedom as you dove into the dark water.

But thats just my take.
