Rebecca and Nadine

Nude, Iceland, 2014

I’ve been away from posting for a couple of weeks (in part because I was away from home for a few days recently), so I’m coming back with a couple of photos of a couple of models in Iceland – Rebecca and Nadine.
These were made during my 2014 trip to Iceland, and I’ve posted some photos with Nadine there previously.  However, on the occasion of these photos, I was working with Rebecca for the first time.  She had been planning to visit Iceland from her home in England and very kindly arranged her schedule so that she could work with me for a couple of days.
The location is a well known waterfall located near one of the major towns on Iceland’s south coast.  As Rebecca had only arrived to meet us late in the morning, we had to make our photos here in the middle of the day, when lots of tourists are about.  Being next to a busy campground and in clear view of a bridge did not help things, but despite that, we somehow got a minute or two with nobody around to allow us to take a few photos.
Still, we had to be quick, and I don’t even think I was able to finish off the roll of ten photos.  I am, however, happy with what we did get.


Some of you who are friends of mine on Facebook may have noticed that I have not posted anything there for a couple of weeks.  Why???
I was put in Facebook jail for a week about two weeks ago for posting a picture of my new book, which includes some topless models on the cover, so I figured that if FB wants me to not write anything for a week, then I’ll just stay away from FB altogether for two weeks.  Still, when I tried to log in again, I was told that I needed to prove that I’m really me by showing them a copy of an official ID (like a driver’s license), which I refuse to do.
So, I have decided to boycott FB for at least a month.  (After all, Mark Zuckerberg needs us a lot more than we need him, something evidenced by my getting a couple of e-mails from FB every day asking me to log in again.)  The only question is, when I choose to return, should I cave in and show them a copy of my ID, or do I just set up a whole new account and go through the trouble of re-friending a few hundred people?

    Reblogged this on Rebecca Tun: just the sort of thing you might expect and commented:
    Ah, memories of this Icelandic adventure with Dave Rudin and Nadine Stevens…send shivers down my spine. 😆 Because of the epic scenery, of course.

  3. Absolutely ridiculous you got put in FB jail. And what’s with the ID to prove who you are? I thought that was what security questions were for. You could try it their way this once but tell them to shove it if they do it again to you.
