Penance

This is Mason, a toughie on the football field and confident enough to pose naked, knowing the finished photographs would be exhibited internationally. My aim was to create a loose interpretation of Atlas, bearing the world on his shoulders.
So far so good.
To spare my female blushes, his fiancee was on hand to make sure no dangly bits would intrude into the picture. After much discussion, while I waited with my back turned, I heard the words, “duct tape” and “Nooooo!”.
Well, yes, the duct tape was used and there were muted screams (of pain) and a few tears (of laughter) but said dangly bits were neatly tucked away and the photographs were taken. So far, Penance – as it was eventually named – has won a couple of awards, so I think it was worth all the anguish.
Not quite sure what Mason would say, though.

    Is that photo-effects or did you really roll him over a few times in the grass? Kudos all ’round …
