This is a monochrome fine art nude photograph of a woman, inverted as a pendant. Her hands clutch a doubled and knotted rope; she controls her pendulum. The stands wrap tightly around her waist. Her feet press against the rope above her nude figure.

She is suspended against a gentle dark gray gradient. Her bright form stands out in the darkness. The rope is angled, implying motion in progress. The vertical momentum is interrupted by bright and gracefully wavy hair. Her neck and chin extend toward the ground, just inches below her.

The subject appears tranquil, although the pose appears anything but comfortable. She is in a circumstance of her own making that is at once tense and thrilling. Her fingers and toes curl, hinting at an peak of emotion.

This monochrome fine art nude photograph is a reciprocal theme to the black and white nude “Counterpoise”.
