I found this post title at a website called Fully Disclothed, a blog site that brings the words and photos of people in Toronto, Canada as an act of disclosure. As I wandered through the site and listened to the words of those who took photos of themselves, or had a trusted person take their photos, I realised that what I do here at Through a Naturist Lens, is much the same.
Over the many, many posts, regardless of whether I use images of myself, of nature, or of others, I am always disclosing, discovering and curiously becoming a healthier person. Do we realise that everything that we post, whether on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or any other media – reveals to ourselves and others something about which we are usually unaware? Do we dare stand back and wonder at the images, the comments and the attitudes?
I am writing a novel as many of my readers are already know. It is a work of fiction. Yet, can a work of fiction really be all fiction? I doubt it. It is impossible to keep the unconscious self contained because none of us know, let alone control, those things about ourselves hidden in the unconscious shadows. But they do appear in our words, in our attitudes, in our images we paint, draw, photograph; or the images that get noticed.
