Time slowed almost to a stop. The cane landed, branding its line of pain and fire across her body. She would absorb it. Eons later the cane would land again.
Perhaps time was all submission and fire,. Perhaps this never would end.
Still in the dining room of the castle. The light: wood and leather. And girl. And bamboo.
Bamboo! So easily obtained and hurty. I always worry about splitting though.
I went wandering through the Italian countryside, looking for something like a switch or cane to beat my girl with. This bamboo is a species I haven’t encountered before. It’s quite soft, but also quite heavy.
It’s very big on thud rather than sting, which isn’t true of the bamboo cane I have at home. Or any other bamboo cane I’ve ever used.
But it left lovely marks!
What a lovely thought and image.
I use ratan canes, as I have never had one split.
I agree. Rattan is the connoisseur’s choice.
Unfortunately, neither of my rattan canes would fit into my case, and I didn’t feel like wandering round airports and railways stations with a crook-handled cane under my arm. So I left them at home.
I found the cane locally, after a bit of foraging in the Italian countryside. It was was actually a lovely implement, though I had to throw it away when I left the castle. Again, it wouldn’t make itself invisible for travel purposes.
This is a lovely image in such a beautiful setting. I am fascinated by castles and old buildings.
Ouch . . . I’m sure that was very hurty.
But a lovely, intense, looking picture !!!

We have a rattan canes too and never had it split… I have however had several pieces of willow (I think) split across my butt x
Amazing pic and words. Evocative.
Looks like so much fun for both of you ?
I love the lighting in this image! And of course her bum looks gorgeous too!
Lovely image and a beautiful implement xx
Oh my look at those fabulous welts
There is some Bamboo growing near one of the places I work, I may need to trim it up a bit next time I am there.
Those lovely marks, it’s almost a shame I prefer thud over sting, sting creates far more spectacular marks.
Such a great photo with beautiful words accompanying it. I love the part about branding it’s line of pain!
Great shot!! Dark and dramatic. Xx
