Photography: Repurposing Bras Or Just Had Enough?

In a remote, rocky, little draw off the Columbia River, we decided to explore to maybe find a rock formation to photograph. It was an odd spot, not really near anything, well off the road and one of nature’s divots that would not lend itself too much for mankind’s use. But, I had neglected to consider womankind’s use.

Bra Rock 2Now as some of you no doubt know, I am big on highlighting Portland’s repurposing movement. You maybe recall the couches, chairs, TV’s, furniture, clothing….the ‘free stuff’ sitting out in the rain and snow? Always near rentals, it seems a convenient way of sharing stuff that one is just too impeded to load up and take with. Perhaps my tone is not coming through clearly. Let me add a clarifying phrase I often utter when driving by such drops “What a bunch of bullshit. Lazy bastards”. 

Well who would have thought a bra, a daintily placed bra, fastened (maybe someone zipped that baby right up over those extended arms?) piece of apparel would be displayed so gracefully atop a rock where few women tread.

Bra Rock 1 swittersbNow this is one of those posts where the properly selected tags could draw more visitors. Taking all the derivatives for breasts would certainly boost the draw to SwittersB, but I just can’t let myself do that. But I digress.

So, was this a repurposing of lingerie? A forgotten piece of a scavenger hunt? Someone stumbling away in the dark, impaired and forgetting their bra or someone just saying ‘enough of that damn thing…I’m free and it feels good?’ Well it is still setting there, in the approaching Winter’s weather, free for the taking. Ah, the discoveries of photography and hiking.

    OK, enquiring minds want to know…..what is the bra size, it’s all in the details??
    I’m guessing a 36-38 C….
    Why there, I’m thinking sunbathing at first , but why then left in place, perhaps to inspire the finder to ponder the whimsical wearer of this sensible brazier.
    Underwear can show up in the darndest of places!
    Personally, I always police my casings.
    Have been really enjoying the eclectic All-things-Fly-Fishing & interrelated these past few years.
    This blog is one of the few bright lights in the increasing darkness of humanity.
    Keep up the good fight & blog justly.

    I would call this………”eerie”…….;-)

      Yes, it had that potential. I looked about for anything more sinister. But then you often travel in that
      “eerie” environment!

        LOL. I once found a black, lace bra lying on the ground in front of my supermarket. Along with those plastic tooth flossers people toss out of their cars (which is just weird). I find it amusing 😉
