By the water-lilies on the lake (rope bondage feeling)

Yesterday we went to a lake where we knew their to be a small landing at the waters edge. There are water lilies on the lake and it’s surrounded by trees. It’s a beautiful location and for a while we’ve been wanting to create a certain image there.

So off we set with a Yukata and obi in a bag, a friend who models for us, a few bits of rope and a camera and tripod.

Luckily we had a beautiful day and the shot we eventually got was I think very beautiful. All the elements of light, setting, bondage and model seemed just right. Even the water was glassy calm. I really think that clover got an amazing image.

I often say that rope is not about rope. This image is not about rope either. I’m sure that looking at it you can form your own opinions of what it is about.

It’s a great feeling when you get something you’ve been wanting to get for a while. I hope you enjoy this images as much as we do.

About the Author:

WykD_Dave (Dave Rickman) is a UK-based shibari bondage enthusiast, who now teaches and performs internationally accompanied by his partner Clover. He started exploring bondage 27 years ago and was autodidact for the first 17 years, until a lesson with shibari professional Osada Steve changed his way of tying. Dave loves Japanese style rope work, and decided to dedicate himself to this. “It isn’t about the rope, it’s about the expression, the look in the eyes, the hopelessness, the agony”. Now, Dave & Clover teach and perform all around the world. He takes great pleasure in seeing people get it and open their minds to what rope bondage can really be. “Not just a means of restraint but a much deeper and personally connected experience than any other I’ve ever found.” Running into Dave means running into his lovely partner Clover. She is very passionate about shibari bondage too, she models and performs, as well as makes impressive photos of Japanese rope work done by Dave. Her photography focuses on the feelings involved in rope play, not just the pretty ties, and she tells stories with her pictures. Dave: “Of course Clover’s a huge part of everything. Without her photography would people ever have noticed?”
