Limp Pools of Desire

The defining characteristic of the Maldives islands is the ocean’s edge. The islands float so close to sea level that they seem to be more part of the ocean than their own bodies of land. These plots of sand are no more than inches above the surface, and the shallow undersea lagoon floors themselves little more than inches below. And the edge of the two intermingled worlds is where so much magic happens. Whether it is the legendary bioluminescence, the iconic puppy-like reef sharks languidly patrolling, or the indolent mill pond calm caressing the toes of romantic couples strolling along. It is no wonder that so many fashionistas love to wallow here…

    Helen Owen (US) did a photoshoot on Dusit Thani and Lucy Watson (UK) on Milaidhoo. Check their IGs. They are signed models.

    Is this supposed to be ‘limpid pools of desire’? Limp seems a bit jarring.

    Oh, I now have thousands of models and bloggers who have posted shots from the Maldives (mostly from IG) and have seen the Owen and Watson posts (they will have to wait for the next version of this post).

    Actually, I did mean “limp” as a play on the phrase “limpid pools of desire” underscoring how relaxed they all look. 🙂
