MALE STRIP SHOW (Ladies over 80 not admitted)

Serious in-depth Photography demands Total Dedication & Immersion in your assignment.

Braving Crocodiles, Water Snakes and Wangaratta Water Moccasins requires the utmost strength of character, fortitude and dedication.

Familiy geneologist and understudy, Salina Riley, chronicles the heroic event for posteriority

Braving rising floodwaters, treacherous undercurrents and bottomless sinks, your intrepid photojournalist puts duty before comfort or personal safety.

The saga was captured with an E-PL3 + SWD12-60mm and an E-3 + 50-150mm kit lens - CS3 processing.

Neither icy water nor biting wind will chill the spirit, or make any cooler, this Daddy Cool.

Re: MALE STRIP SHOW (Ladies over 80 not admitted)

LMG, Steve and Chevvy, thanks to you each and all for peeking!

This was very much an impromptu fun stunt that began in collusion with daughter Salina who has a wicked sense of humour. We were checking how much more the river had risen overnight which led to us considering how the rise could best be shown.

I suggested that gum boots might get me far enough out in the water to get a good picture. But it soon became clear that I would need trout fishing waders to get far enough away from the bridge for a good camera angle. The solution was obvious but involved me stripping down to my jocks, then Salina suggested that for effect I go the full monty .. ... well an inherent modesty and forum decorum forbade that I go quite that far!

I don't know about online dating, Chevvy, you are taken and the one time I tried it you could say that I got badly burnt!

Peeking at YOU in your Jocks - NO WAY ! ... took in the view ...

I cannot imagine what "on line" dating experience brings with it ... friends who do stats say more than 50% of those registered are in a relationship - so two timing, wanting extra SEX or FUN or both with no committments ! Ergo common decency would prohibit any thoughts ... as I want no more of either and one relationship is one too complex from me

I am sure you are phishing for more information, a defence or confession, Chevvy.

In a registered relationship I am as faithful as a drover's dog and have never two-timed anyone. But once, between marriages, I sought a new partner online and met an American lady whose fare I paid to Australia - it was a costly mistake. End of story. #

@ Chevvy: what, you want 'no more' fun?

Well, If you knew me better - you too would know I have LOTS OF FUN in my life ...

My Nick (DH not married); my dogs (well Mr Huggy Henry is MINE and I share Nicks Mr Senna) who I took out sea swimming only last Friday at Hayling Island Dogs beach then for or a good walk along the beach out with swimming and back along the Wild scrubland (no swimming and to dry the dogs off) ; my England and my local Countryside and all its glorious Wildlife ... Photography for me

Then FUN fulfillment in Educating a few under 8 years children to "Be Enthusiastic Learners" and "Independent" and "Kind, Nice & Gentle" young people ; Delivering these children AWESOME Learning Experiences which mean my days work is a picnic at Janesmoors Pond, Nr. Brook in the New Forest; walking in the Forest - Exploring all forms of Wildlife by animals and Humans (litter and lack of respect of the environment ...) Climbing Trees; playing hide n' seek; using our Porta Potti (for outings in the Viano Boot - for standards of hygiene to be maintained ) and Porta wash basin ; Racing our 6 remote control Sea Craft (Lifeboat; Pirate Ship; Hovercraft; My Yacht; two Stealth boats and one offshore Speedboat) ; playing various games about the picnic rugs area - observing and being kind and getting to know the animal inhabitants (ponies; donkeys; cows; sheep and pigs to name a few) - of the Pond (Fish and Dragonflies & Damselflies) and Water plants - mainly Water Lilies ; Riding Bikes and Sit n' Ride toys and playing ball games ... (from the trailer of toys we tow in our trailer) for the day ... Living and having FUN in our Countryside means these children LOVE it, Value it and shall develop a WANT TO PRESERVE IT as they respect it and all it brings them

THE Venue may be @ New Forest or Hayling Island Beach where collecting shells to bring home and even make Jewellery for Mums (using a tiny handrill for the holes and Playdough to hold the shell still (for the child to drill) ; or West Wittering where the tides goes out so far, we dig sand and make a "whiole housing Estate" as in Shreek then wait for the tide to come in (while we eat and babes nap) and then Jumping in ans swimming or paddling from the groynes ; Rock pooling is fun too : or it may be Fort Nelson and Cannons and Pirates then down to the Portsmouth Dockyards to see Warrior and Discovery REAL pIrate ships (all linked to vital HISTORY); or Aldershot Military Museum, riding in Tanks :eeK, taking a picnic lunch and then tour the Musem ... or any National Trust property ... Marwell Zoo ... Roman Palace remains ... Museums and Castle Ruins - the Round Table in Winchester and the History of The Knights of the Round Table ... so many places in a year to visit ...


ooh! I missed out Riding one of our Motobikes (one of us rides a Ducati out and the other ride the Duke back ) ,,, and I must add Photography as we have EVIDENCE of all this fun - and thats in a days WORK imagine what its like here on outings without the children we care for ?

Mark, not phishing, just a "fun" throwaway remark ... What anyone does in their personal life, is just that - Personal!

BUT I do so love your honesty and Integrity and most of all, your love of life and fun ! ...

ps kinda reminds me of getting Nicks Speedo's off last year on holiday ... and my naked thread on him ... all modesty maintained professional as your good self which all goes to prove we can have a lot of fun - thousands of miles apart - with millions of voyers ... some of whom will comment, BUT ALL will have a few chuckles and grins - and it makes the world a better place, for us all, eh Mark ?

Methinks I do not stand on a pedestal so high, my dear, but thank you for thinking so all the same.
