Thrown Into the Deep End- Mansion Hotel & Spa at Werribee Park 6/8

by cecylia on May 8, 2013

I’ve never been a swimmer. The only stroke I’ve ever mastered is the doggy-paddle. Growing up in Shanghai, I rarely had the luxury of lapping in pools, so by the time I came to Melbourne, the fear of a large body of water had already engulfed me. I still recall being sick endlessly riding on the waves of the Great Barrier Reef on a boat cruise with my parents. All the freshest seafood couldn’t save me. And when came time for us to go snorkelling, I was so terrified of the sea I ended up paddling in a 2 x 3 m cage next on the ship whilst my parents bravely fronted the reef to explore all its wondrous under-the-sea marvels. My only participation during high school swimming carnivals was cheering on the contestants and playing card games with friends when the teachers weren’t watching. And when I’m on holidays, I paddle for a minute and try a few backstrokes before reclining on a lounge, nose in a book. The water is just not for me. But you’ll be glad to know that this is a fully-clothed shoot, and I look surprisingly unfazed sitting next to a large body of chlorinated H20.

Where: at the 17 metre indoor swimming pool and spa at Mansion Hotel & Spa at Werribee Park

This is my other take on the Metallic trend, see the first version [HERE]. I’ve had this jacket for a while now and have never worn it because of its boxy cut but when worn as a cape, it’s rather empowering. These threads appear like they’re from a Rumpelstiltskin tale, no wonder they provided me with the courage to withstand ’The Deep End’ and the ‘Slippery Surface’. On a side note, it’s amazing what a little bit of steam can do for one’s complexion. The warmth from the indoor poor gave me a radiance that no serum could provide. So, how do you feel about swimming? Or have you ever been ‘thrown into the deep end’?

我到现在还不怎么会游泳。不像我的先生,他游得超棒。小时候在上海长大,我很少有机会去游泳池玩,来到墨尔本后,像一只陆地鸡,怕水的我已经不爱进水了。我还记得小时候乘在船上与我的父母游览大堡礁波时,我不停地晕船。再多的最新鲜的海鲜也救不了我。而当我们去浮潜的时候,我非常害怕“上海”,最后他们只能让我在一个2×3米铁笼里游着玩,而我的父母却勇敢地朝着大宝礁探索奇妙的海下奇迹。在高中学校时,我不得不参加游泳会,但我并没有任何游泳参与,只为参赛者们欢呼。我在度假的时候,我在游泳池里才花一分钟的时间兜兜我的腿,往后仰几下,让后马上就躺在一把长凳上休息,看书。水不适合我。你会很高兴知道,这是一个完全穿着的摄影,而且我坐在庞大的水面边看起来却出奇的平静。。。

这是我另一套“金属特性”的穿着,请在[这里]参阅第一个版本。我有这件夹克衫很久了,而直到现在才穿。因为已开始嫌它有点四四方方,但将它穿为一件披风,就显得比较时髦了。金色真有威力。可能因为我穿着这件外衣因此我有胆量离“水的深处’和’湿滑的地面’那么近。哦,你有没有注意到这么一点点的蒸汽就能使我干燥的皮肤变得那么滋润?我渴望早日回到Mansion Hotel & Spa at Werribee Park旅馆。你对游泳有什么看法?你爱游泳还是怕游泳?

The first photo is such a great shot! What a shame you hate the water though, I’d swim every day if I could.

That jacket is stunning! And there’s that cuff again…sigh. I want it.

I did lots of swimming lessons in a pool when I was younger, but nothing really prepares you for swimming in the sea – its’ a lot more tiring! Would love to snorkel the reef one day though :)
