Burning Lotus — self-shot, used with permission of artist.
Allow me to introduce the beautiful Burning Lotus. She models and takes her own pictures to explore her sexual and erotic energy. In her words:
I am an amateur photographer and model - in other words, if you don’t like either the picture or the model, the buck stops here. I have been taking pictures for almost two years - I use a point n shoot camera, a tripod and a timer. Primitive but I think that is part of the fun and the challenge for me. I have so many pictures in my head! I am learning about so many things and it is rich. Another experiment in living passionately.

That Blue… A Pelicanh moment
This continues to be one of my favorite images from my shoot with the inimitable, beautiful, funny life force that is Michael Helms. I also love the fact that my back piece is shown so brilliantly. … I was waiting on Michael to get situated and we were discussing what might be fun to do. As I have no manners, I was gazing out his window and day dreaming as I sometimes do. He blurted, “Don’t move. The light! The light!”
For those of you who are tired of the grief you get about your tats and how they’re going to look when you get older, take heart. This lady is 51 years old and looking quite good, thank you very much. Definitely not your average tumblr reader.
I have a few more pictures of Burning Lotus queued up and I’m hoping she’ll make this her primary outlet for her work. Some positive feedback would help in that regard. REBLOG this. And get off your dash, go over to my main page, and use disqus comments to send Ms Lotus a note or ask her a question.
