My friend Kevin Spalding is a budding photog of the first order. Last Monday, I took a metric shedload of decongestants and pried myself out of bed in order to go dangle from the ceiling with my friend and trainer, CL, and another classmate of ours, AM2, who works in television media and did some did some consulting for Kevin and some shooting of her own.
I haven’t seen AM2’s shots that, but Kevin’s are stunning — not to mention really stunning illustrations of what almost a year training hard in aerials and ballet has done to my body.
I tend to miss the changes. It isn’t until I see myself in pictures that I really ever go, “Oh, huh, I guess all this physical stuff is doing something.”
For what it’s worth, I definitely needed the pick-me-up right now, because in my mind every day that I spend sitting on the bench with this stupid infection is a day I’m going backwards … never mind that I’d tell literally anyone else that concentrated rest is a good thing once in a while, and that if you don’t let your body have it, your body will find a way to force it in you.
For what it’s and, I’ve put in an request for an appointment with my doc early next week; I’ll find find out when tomorrow morning.
Til then, enjoy the gallery, and I promise I don’t look this amazing in real real life; K-Spald just knows what he’s doing. Oh, and if you want to see the full gallery, you can find it here.
