Bug Off*

The following photos were taken by the excellent Cam Attree in and around a derelict old cannery. To see two previous posts from our time together, click here and here; this third and final selection is very different again.

* You’ll notice an inventory of insect bites remains intact. ‘Bug off’ relates to the multiple orange bottles of insect repellant spray Cam and Mal Grant (who was shooting Merrique simultaneously) brought with them for us all to use. Most bug-infested location ever. I don’t like using aerosols, but this stuff smelled really good – so sweet and fruity, baffling me entirely as to how it would do anything but attract insects. Anyway… I think it helped (and one of the bottles was very helpful for the rest of my trip after my Deet had run out…!)! Furthermore, for Christmas my Mum bought me a moisturiser by Avon which US soldiers apparently use for its little-known anti-insect effects. Feckin’ mosquitos.

  1. So sorry to hear about the nasty bugs…spending many a year in humid, tropical climates, I can relate. 😉 Brilliant images, though. I just adore the poses you strike…such grace and beauty. So very lovely and moving, as always. 🙂
