    Wow. Amazing shot. A curse, indeed – but such beauty as well

  • Thanks Colleen – i have SO many SPs of this thing. I can’t very well totally hate something that gives me so much material, it’s true :)

    It’s just so fabulously Victorian, and somehow mechanical as well – not sure where I get that from but that’s the feeling it evokes in me. This particular pic (I haven’t seen the others with the brace) is interesting, too, because of the contrasts between the modern top and the (seemingly) archaic brace. Sublime :)))

    Yes, funny i see it the same way; utilitarian and Victorian at once. I’ll be adding more of the brace soon :). Thank you!

    i like it too, for the same reasons as colleen.. it’s like the machinery of restraint.. the but lace-up makes it erotic.. old worldly. great image, excellent pic, very provocative!

  • Thanks, Mizz :). I like that, “the machinery of restraint”. Mind if i use that as a title someday? Bloody brilliant.

    My grandma wore one of these for years and years, probably way past the point of needing it. Looks much sexier on you, somehow – lol.

  • Haha! Well thanks, Tama.
    I try to wear it only when i need it, but yeah, it’s sort of a permanent fixture in my life…

    This is great, and I agree with Tama, I find it oddly sexy. Love how youve ps this, well done

  • Thanks :). When i first got the thing from the orthopaedic shop in Honolulu, my boyfriend at the time was with me – when i was being fitted for it he asked the saleswoman, “Does it come in black?”
    Lol…

    HAHAHAHAHAHA brilliant. Tony wouldve said the same thing. I work in Orthopaedics, must have a hunt round next time Im down there and see what I can rustle up. Life is strange, what you find as encumberment, others would find an asset and vice versca. Wear your scars and corsets with pride, they have all turned you into the woman you are today and given you the nounce with the camera!! Rejoyce in it!!!!

  • Heh, men…:)
    You can actually dye them – i’ve thought about that as mine has pink stains all over it now anyway from my favourite shirt…
    Thanks so much, that’s a lovely thing to say. I wouldn’t have ever picked up a camera in the first place had it not been for my “handicaps”…so true!

    No thank you, youve inspired me to try and get something done in the Ortho Department. More people like you are needed to show some of our patients that what they may think of as not the best fashion statement to actually turn it to their advantage. Ive got all sorts of things rolling around in my brain actually lol. I love people like you who take something that was once what you thought was probably a hideous accessory into something beautiful, it also takes the scariness out of the mystery for some. Im waiting for a quad bypass, the upside of it for me is the scars believe it or not. Good photo ops lol. Thanks for the confetti….and black happens to be my fav lol

  • My goodness – a quad bypass huh? I’ll send good mojo your way for the surgery. I love photographing scars, i think they’re beautiful. Flawlessness is an illusion, you know?
    Yes, once i actually put the brace on the first thing i thought (when i wasn’t in so much pain i couldn’t see, that is), “Photo ops!” I think the things that bring us the most pain are also the things that inspire us to our most profound and interesting work. I can’t wait to see the photos you do afterwards. The best of luck with the surgery and healing process!
