Each week I write a Sinful Sunday weekly round-up highlighting my top 5 images from the previous Sunday. All images used are fully credited and linked back to the original post. If anyone objects to having their image used in the round-up then you need to let me know, otherwise I will assume that by taking part you are happy to be featured on the Sinful Sunday site.

Sinful Sunday Weekly Round-up 188

The new monthly prompt is now out. I am excited about this one as I think it has real potential to inspire people to indulge in some creative editing. You can find all the details on Sinful Sunday Monthly Prompt 11.

In the meantime it gives me truly great pleasure to welcome yet another guest to these pages and this week it is the fabulous blogger and erotic writer, Malin James. While not a contributor to Sinful Sunday herself I knew she was a big fan of the meme and so I invited her to come a dip her pen in the sexy imagery of Sinful Sunday and I have to say her write-up is a true delight. Enjoy!

Malin’s Top 5 pics of the week

When Molly asked me to pick the round up this week, I was delighted. Of course I said yes. I had no idea how difficult it would be. I love art and photography. I love visual aesthetics. With so many honest, beautiful, irreverent and touching images to go through, I needed to something to guide me through. I needed to understand why I couldn’t let certain photographs go, because those images that stayed with me in the middle of the night, were ultimately the ones I put in my top five.

In the end, I’m a writer. I look for the story in everything, and the five images I finally, (and with great difficulty), chose, are not only beautiful, but also narrative. There are stories in these photographs that drew me in, made me wonder, made me think and made me feel. I love catching glimpses of humanity, especially when the glimpses are fleeting. And so here, in no particular order, is my Sinful Sunday Round Up. Thank you to all the participants – you made my job exceedingly hard, and all the more pleasurable for it.

Behind The Chintz Curtain

I realize this may sound over the top, but there is nothing I don’t love about this image. I love the elegant curve of her body behind the angular tripod, the way one of her hands rests lightly in her lap, while the other holds the camera with an easy, natural grace…. Aside from the fact that it’s the sort of photograph I could easily imagine seeing in a gallery, the overall effect is strong, feminine and intimate—a portrait of the relationship between the photographer and her work.

Molly’s Daily Kiss

There’s something irresistibly impish about this photo. Maybe it’s the popping sherbet color of Molly’s rainbow suspenders, or the way she seems to be peeking at something beneath her branch, but I smiled every time I looked at it. It warmed me up and made me think of Puck in Midsummer Night’s Dream. The composition is beautiful, the colors are rich, it’s balanced and polished and quite frankly perfect, but ultimately, it made me feel good. That’s why I couldn’t let it go.

Maria Opens Up

That textured, nubby, sweater, the lovely glimpse of smooth cleavage, (highlighted by that gorgeous, soft lighting), her fingers wrapped around the ceramic mug, the homey wooden table…. God, what’s not to love about this? Like “Tomboy,” this photograph made me smile. Winter is, without a doubt, my favorite season, and this photo captures so much of what I love about it—the casual, cozy sexiness of being warm indoors when it’s cold outside. It made me long for snow and ice beyond the window, and a fire in the grate.

Her Second Chance

I am a sucker for androgyny, and even more so for ambiguity. That crisp white shirt, the white suspenders, the tilt of the fedora over the eyes, that slight, whisper of a smile—it all makes me wish I was curled up in one of the leather club chairs across the room. It’s impossible to tell if her hands are bound above her head, or if they’re simply resting there in cocky satisfaction. Either way, this image is a story and half, and gorgeously sexy too.

That Position

Man laying naked on bed

It’s true that what first caught my attention is the subject’s excellent bum, but pleasing anatomy isn’t what made me choose it in the end. It was the sweet, domestic homeyness of the image overall. The rumpled duvet, the soft hair on his legs, and his sleepy relaxation all reminded me of the very best sort of Sunday morning. It’s an intimate portrait that made me hope they spent the whole lazy day in bed.

Blast from the Past

Sinful Sunday Week 69Frisky in the 916

Woman in bubble bath masturbating

Sometimes an image makes me smile, sometimes it makes think dirty bad thoughts and sometimes it makes me want something and this is one of those images. It makes me want to disappear off upstairs, run a big hot bath with lots of bubble bath and lay back in it and enjoy the relaxation that the heat and water brings and maybe beneath those bubbles reach down and find my own heat. This image makes me want….

Sinful Sunday Monthly Prompt 11

This month’s prompt is; Colour Splash

A colour splash image is when most of the image is in black and white but either a single colour or a single item within the image has been left in colour.

This image; Cars, is an example of where a certain item(s) has been left in colour and this image; In the Pink is an example of where a certain colour has been left in. If you look at the images on google for Black and White Colour splash you will find many more examples that show just how many ways that this editing technique can be used to completely transform an image.

The prompt is published here on the site mid month, which will give people approximately 2 weeks to work on their idea before linking in, on the 1st weekend of the month. The prompt is completely optional and you can link in as normal on that weekend whether you have used the prompt or not. The usual Sinful Sunday rules will, of course, apply. Please make sure you have read them recently so that you are fully aware of what is and is not allowed.

As always interpret as you wish, or disregard altogether and do you own thing.

Have your post ready to go for Sunday 7th December 2014. Any questions or queries can be posted in the comments below, you can email me molly@mollysdailykiss.com or tweet me @mollysdailykiss
