‘These images were shot from 2009, through to some photos I took this morning on my hardwood floor, in the morning light. A history, of sorts, of self-documentation and exploration. I think my pictures show little in terms of physical change, however looking back I can’t believe how long ago 2009 feels. So this is me, Hyperballad, old and new, changed and unchanged but forever following my bliss.’

My ISM folio went live when I was away sick!  I just discovered it online today.  Yay!  What a nice surprise.  The folio is the same name as the title of this post and if you want to join up, click the ishotmyself banner on the left to get a 10% discount on your membership.  Above is one of my favourite pictures from the set.

I have submitted a folio to the I Shot Myself project for the first time in years! The word on the street is that it will go live next month sometime. If you want to join up, the banner to the left will get you a 10% discount on membership.

Otherwise here are few of my favourite shots from the folio. Enjoy!

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang has been gracing your screens and pants for 2 years now!!

I celebrated accordingly:


Summer’s almost gone
Summer’s almost gone
Almost gone
Yeah, it’s almost gone
Where will we be
When the summer’s gone?

Morning found us calmly unaware
Noon burned gold into our hair
At night, we swam the Laughing sea
When summer’s gone
Where will we be
Where will we be
Where will we be

Morning found us calmly unaware
Noon burned gold into our hair
At night, we swam the Laughing sea
When summer’s gone
Where will we be

Summer’s almost gone
Summer’s almost gone
We had some good times
But they’re gone
The winter’s comin’ on
Summer’s almost gone

I’m just setting off on a teensy holiday with my man and some friends.  Can’t wait to get some relaxo and sexy time (of course) in with him.  Plus hanging with all my great friends.

Hopefully I shall return with some sweet photos to share, we’re camping for about a week and I’m really wanting to make some pretty pictures.

Hurrah!

Have a safe and happy New Years folks!

Over and out.

ps. I have scheduled some posts for the next week or so, just some bits and pieces.

…but you want your own creative control AND to be well paid for your efforts?

Project ISM is a space that empowers women of all ages, nationalities, sizes and shapes.

ISM isn’t about being a supermodel or sending in a professional portfolio.  It is all about happy and healthy women having fun, being creative and most importantly choosing how they want to represent their naked form.

Insofar 4044 artists have submitted to the project, 5254 folios are live, which equals a total of 236721 images and counting.  So many different women from so many different places in the world and walks of life have gotten their kit off to contribute to ISM.

They’re also the only company I know of that you earn monthly per-click bonuses from a royalty-type program called Feckshare.


ISM is about subverting the mainstream.

That means we’re not really interested in folios that look like Hustler, or mainstream porn – pouting, stilettos, fake tan, loads of makeup, pinup poses. We want you to express yourself through the photos. We love to see your living space, the place where you live – show us what your part of the world looks like.

We love creative folios, so we offer a $500 art prize every month. But everybody’s motive is different and fine art might not be your thing. You can just have fun, be experimental, or you can make porn – as long as it’s original self expression, it’s good. We LOVE outdoor folios. Especially if it shows what your part of the world looks like – the architecture, landscape, and how you live.

Here is a link to the awesome tutorial that the guys from the project put together to get yourself started, or if you want to read more about the project theres loads more about the ISM principle over there: ISM project

 

 

 

 

 

 

This post is dedicated to k.j.

As per the diagram above^ vulvas come in all kinds of variations…  None of them seem ‘right’  or ‘ wrong’ to me.  I think #27 is my personal favourite, the vulva I find most asthetically pleasing so to speak.  However if I was presented with any of these vulvas, by someone I wanted to get busy with, I’d be pretty fucking happy to bury my face into any of them.  I reckon a lot of guys probably share this sentiment too.  Although I can only speak from my own experience with men to make this fairly sweeping statement.

I think we always tend to want what we don’t have ourselves.

I also think we tend to think we’re freaky, ugly, weird and so on.  I mean, of the images above I don’t think I look like any of them, although #29 is probably the closest and my inital reaction was ‘jeez, I’m not really identifed in any of these examples…’

This is me:

So as you can see, not a lot to see unless I genuinely spread my legs.  I tend to suffer, although not too much, from vagina envy…  I want a fuller vulva but really do love what I have and what it does for me.  As you can see I don’t have particularly defined outer lips, but everything I do have is tucked inside me and all of my genitals are right underneath my pelvis, rather than kinda starting towards the front.  It seems loads of women have more vulva starting on the front of their bodies, I don’t for whatever reason and honestly that’s fine.

Also, now that I have full pubes, you can’t even really see anything defined much behind the brunette fuzz if I’m standing  front-on naked.

I particularly like the image above as it clearly shows 2 very, very similar bodies – breasts, hips, shoulder width and torso length ect are evenly matched.  However these ladies have very different vulvas.  It shows that no 2 women are the same, despite, at first glance how similar they look.

Basically, what I’m driving at here is that we should try to accept, value and try our best to succeed at loving what we have.  Don’t judge yourself as ugly, because it’s an unhelpful, negative and pretty closed way of looking at yourself and kind of by default, others as well.  It’s tricky sometimes and we cannot do this every single day, but try to celebrate yourself and your body.  Be kind to yourself both in thoughts and words.

Self love, in all it’s expressions is a beautiful and wonderful thing and I encourage everyone, everywhere to take some time to enjoy yourself and be nice to yourself.
