The Prompt for Sinful Sunday this week is an outtake picture.
It’s not really a prompt you can plan for. Although I have plenty of photos we take that I don’t like, none of them really fell into the ‘outtake’ category.
That was until we were driving home from a day out at the weekend and spotted a set of church tower ruins. PurpleSole pulled over the car and asked if I wanted to just check it out. We had the kids in the back asleep and could only park on the other side of the road so I wasn’t comfortable with us both getting out. I agreed and took the camera with me just in case.
Walking around the ruins it was just too pretty not to try and capture an image. As I was on my own and had no tripod with me, I rested the camera in the branch of a tree and set it for self timer. A quick look around, no cars, I removed my clothes. I ran towards the ruins but didn’t quite make it.
After the first failure I thought I would have a quick second attempt. I took my fishnets off and set the camera to self time once more. Looked around shit, a car had pulled up beside the church and I could see the driver and passenger looking directly at me. Fuck, fuck, fuck what do I do? I had already pressed the button so thought I would just run. The bit inside the church would provide some cover anyway. Turns out the adrenaline made me run a bit faster, I managed to get into the tower.
I waited but no shouting or cry’s of horror, tentatively I ran back to the tree. Grabbed my clothes and camera and got back dressed in the tower ruins. Stuffing my fishnets and bra in my pinafore dress for speed and ran back to the car.
PurpleSole remarked that he could see the couple in the car had a good giggle when they must have seen me. Hopefully I hadn’t ruined their day.
