So I know this guy who does a lot of performance art. And he rang me up recently and said 'Hey Sarah, a friend of mine is really, really pregnant, so we want to do some stuff in the city. Nudes, alleys, that sort of thing. You in?'
To which I replied 'Yeah, sure' without having any idea what was going on. I'll admit, one of my key reasons for saying yes was that I secretly wanted her waters to break during the shoot, because come on, how cool would that photo have been?
Anyhoo, Sandra got de-clothed and wandered down this alley holding a stack of balloons, letting one go every few steps, and bursting two at the end. It was sweet. Even better were the Japanese tourists peeking around the corner, giggling, and the woman who got all awkward asking to walk past.
The last photo makes me happy; the bottom balloon is in the process of bursting. Awesome.
