Sinful Sunday: fossa

Sinful Sunday

Axillary fossa1, to be specific. A grand name for a body part that doesn’t ordinarily get a lot of love: a.k.a. “the armpit”.

This is a detail from a photo I posted recently. I like how, when taken out of context, it starts to look like wind-sculpted rock.

1 Thanks are due to Jaime Mortimer for the word “fossa”. He discusses a sexier sort of fossa here.

    1. Thank you. To my eye, it didn’t seem so abstract – I guess because I know what it is and can’t unsee that! It’s interesting that something as absolutely familiar as the human form is capable of producing abstracts.


    1. Thanks! Once I had it in black and white and started cropping/zooming, I noticed that the texture of the skin is really very similar to the texture of the painted wall behind it, which I thought was cool.


  1. Thank you for name-checking my posts on fossae. Yours is beautiful. I bet your inter-gracile sub-pudendal fossa is a thing of absolute beauty and wonder, too.
