These are the facts. As for the impressions, I will be as thrifty with words as Peggy Zouti, the maker of this picture. That’s all she said  about her little triumph on her wall in facebook
few days ago:

For all those who LOVE swimming naked this is a calendar and a guide to swimming naked in beautiful post around the world, with real people and real stories. My real story is on November at Nas beach, Ikaria island, Greece and also the cover of the calendar!» ^^’

Peggy is a Flickr friend, younger, more daring and 100% more photographer than I am. Below is her original photo, the «Dive with me» (under the same sky) from Ikaria in her page on Flickr. Click on it to see it and let her see her page views rise! Perhaps after that she will tell us the story that goes with the picture!

Quotes, sources and resources about TSDR and SD in general:
………….

«In the 21st century, we
TSDR on tumblrare witnessing the blurring of the dichotomy between photographer and subject. As the camera lens ceases to subjugate as it once did, a third category of nude imagery is emerging that is neither porn nor advertising but social erotica. To be sure, there is still a transaction at play but the currency is far more social than it is monetary.»
— The Skinny Dipping Report (tumblr)


………….

«WHY SKINNY DIPPING?
TSDR on instagramSkinny-dipping is the world’s most universally recognized erotic social experience. For many, it was our first time being naked outdoors, even our first time being naked with someone else. Our first skinny dip may have been an act of rebellion, perhaps from parents, friends, or simply our own fears. We reassured ourselves and maybe each other with the promise that darkness TSDR on instagramand water would conceal our naked bodies, when secretly we knew there was plenty of light to see. It was a good excuse to subvert our own fears of being naked together.
In skinny-dipping – the memory, the idea, and the feeling – there is much to explore.»
— The Skinny Dipping Report (instagram)


………….

«WHY NOW?
TSDR on FlickrThe Internet has democratized cultural production in all conceivable media and genres. It should come as no surprise that has also fundamentally altered the production and sharing of nude imagery, both in practice and intent. TSDR on Flickr What inspires women to submit their naked photos online? The short answer is – Control. The ability to show yourself on your terms, how you’d like to be seen, free from the distortion of someone else’s viewpoint and the sanitizing of Photoshop. For some contributors this is an exposition of pure art. For others it’s a rebellious gesture, erotic expression, a desire to be desired, or a cathartic process. And for everyone, as we’re told every day, it’s just hugely fun. In the 8 years since we began collecting folios we’ve amassed around one million raw images from over 5 thousand contributors in nearly 8000 folios (not all are online, yet). We get more visitors than the Guggenheim, we have a larger collection than the Louvre and track the zeitgeist like the Tate cannot.»

That’s all.
To be honest, as far as I am concerned, I am out of words. From Ikaria Greece, through Valencia Spain, to New York USA! Out here in this little island of rocks I will never allow myself to sulk any more!

Ποολλές, πάαρα πολλές βδομάδες στην Ικαρία…

Ήρθε η άνοιξη πια και μετά τόσο κρύο χειμώνα,

φαίνεται σαν καλοκαίρι. Ara Noris Bania Fetos.

Noris Bania Fetos

Εξάλλου, λένε ότι…

... 

Τι άλλο να κάνεις; Οι πατάτες φυτεύτηκαν

κι οι λεμονιές είν’ εντάξει, αλλάζουν φύλλα, τον άλλο μήνα θ’ ανθίσουν.

Πλάκα έχουμε. Να η στέρνα για πότισμα μαζί κι η πισίνα με ντους.

Για βουνό για σε θάλασσα Pola Bania Fetos!

,,
Μια μέρα που ένιωθα να μ’ έχουν εγκαταλείψει όλα
και μια μεγάλη θλίψη να πέφτει αργά στην ψυχή μου,
τράβηξα, κει που περπατούσα, μες στα χωράφια
χωρίς σωτηρία, ένα κλωνάρι άγνωστου θάμνου.
Το ‘κοψα και το ‘φερα στο απάνω χείλι μου.
Ευθύς αμέσως κατάλαβα ότι ο άνθρωπος είναι αθώος.
Το διάβασα σ’ αυτή τη στυφή από αλήθεια ευωδιά
τόσο έντονα που πήρα να προχωρώ το δρόμο της
μ’ ελαφρύ βήμα και καρδιά ιεραπόστολου.
Ώσπου, σε μεγάλο βάθος, μου έγινε συνείδηση πια
ότι όλες οι θρησκείες λέγανε ψέματα.
Ναι, ο Παράδεισος δεν ήταν μια νοσταλγία.
Ούτε, πολύ περισσότερο, μια ανταμοιβή.
Ήταν ένα δικαίωμα.

Ikaria hidden place

Back to land, near the sea, inside the sea,
hidden paths, hidden places...

Update:
This post seemed ahead of its time. We were ignorant that we created a tradition. Seven years later P.Z. posted the following amazing u/w pictures on Flickr. The last one won a good place in a famous calendar. I blogged about that quiet victory in my «An U/W shot from Ikaria in TSDR Calendar 2016»
