Holy Shit, too (Mirror in the Bathroom series) by 

Ok, that’s not really the title of this, that’s rather irrelevant as it was something like, “Later, Bitches”.
I uploaded this in my original beta Flickr account, under the name Selkie. I just recovered my password and found a shit-ton of old stuff, much of it that fits nicely into my Mirror in the Bathroom series.
Serendipity, bitches :).
So this was taken in 2005, when i was still wearing the backbrace every day. This was my bathroom in my house in New Mexico.
Apparently i was fed up with flickr and about to go on a hiatus, and wrote the following as a caption under the photo:

“This set will be the last for a bit as i excuse myself for a brief hiatus.
The ol’ Esponiza is acting up, and my physical discomfort seems to have an inverse relationship to my tolerance for cyber-pervs and people with the artistic sense of an avid Hustler enthusiast…
I’ve noticed myself becoming increasingly antisocial and easily annoyed by the knuckle-dragging masses that have flocked to Flickr of late – and i shouldn’t be.
But the verbal-fencing i used to so enjoy as a pleasant diversion has lost it’s flavor, like a piece of Juicy Fruit that’s had all the juice sucked out…
And i’m sadly outnumbered.
My fingers are sore from blocking all the 46 year-old virgins living in their mothers’ basement, clicking madly away at any bit of female flesh they can set their eyes on…
So, like an old Dowager whose country has been invaded by the Hun, i now shall retire to my quarters to suck down laudanum and mutter under my breath about “the good old days”.
Obviously, i have some friends here i’ll want to keep up with, and i may lurk a bit in my favorite haunts.
But i have some work to do, a new gallery to organize, a family to irritate, and doctors to pester.

In other words, i need to regroup.
So, ta for now.”

More to come. :)

    Brilliant, scathing commentary which, I am sure, is – sadly – right on point. Funny, poignant, intelligent, witty – I’m so glad it was saved, that you found it, and that you shared it here.

    Wow! I have always enjoyed your work, and i to often wonder about some of the people on this sight and many others that only coment because someone is showing there body. Catch frases like nice pic or hot pic or bla bla bla.
    It is truly refreshing when someone puts some thought into writting a coment.
    Someone using there brain and not there dick……anyway you are truly talented and i always look forward to seeing your updates
