11th April 2013
Well we finally did it. We took the current record of the number of links in, that previous stood at 37, and smashed it into pieces with a massive great big 50 links. Thank you to EVERY single one of you who has, over the past 2+ years, helped to build the Sinful Sunday community into what it is today. As I have always said, it is all very well me doing the work and providing the space but without the contributors, who give the meme life, it would be pointless. I love Sinful Sunday, the community, the fun, the massive spectrum of sexualities, ages, kinks and experiences it portrays every week and above all the huge amount of talented photographers it helps to showcase.
In other exciting news I am in the process of planning another competition! The full details will be up on the site here within the next week so keep you eyes peeled.
Now for the really tricky part, this weeks round-up. Somehow I have set myself the task of choosing just 5 posts to showcase out of the massive 50 that linked in. It is also a challenge every week to whittle it down to just 5 but this week…. *sigh. However I have finally managed to sort it out and rather excitingly for the first time ever in the history of Sinful Sunday I am rather delighted to say that the weekly round-up is a very male affair!!
Plumptious Pea’s Pod
She is the lone female representative this week, although her collage clearly has a very prominent and key male component (hope Beau does not take offence at that, he is clearly way more than just a stunt cock) There were so many possibilities on my list for the top 5 but no matter where I looked I was constantly drawn back to Pea’s post. I love the playfulness of these images, the editing of them has only served to highlight that and there is something very wicked about the top right image. She really does look like a very naughty school girl sucking on something she really shouldn’t!
Some of the most powerful images are those that are all about suggestion and this is a perfect example of that. This blogger is fairly new to Sinful Sunday but he is one that in my opinion has a truly great eye for a beautifully composed shot. The lighting is exceptional, it highlights the powerful masculine contours of his body and illuminates the scene just enough to provide you with everything you need to let your imagination do the rest!
Penny’s photography is always excellent, her compositions and lighting show her skill over and over again but a good picture needs more than just those things, it needs atmosphere. The little shaft of light across the bed seems to be the focus of Jakes gaze or is it? The image suggests that his thoughts seems to be lost elsewhere. The outline of his back draws the eye to the tattoo and the whole photograph has a interesting contrast between the masculine and the vulnerable.
I do love it when people go above and beyond the call of duty to create an image for Sinful Sunday and this is just one of those examples in my opinion, because just when you doing some dirty sweaty hard labour the first thing that pops into your mind is taking a naughty shot for your blog! What a shot it is too, the shadow on his body, the face mask that just seems to emphasis ‘dirty’ the play on words with the ‘massive tool’ and the sheen of sweat on his chest. Suddenly DIY looks a lot more attractive!
The words that go with my top pic this week are very powerful but even without them this image stands alone. There is something about it that makes me stare, something haunting and dramatic. What makes him gaze into the mirror like that? The look in eye is captivating and intense and the editing of the image only seems to highlight that and creates a story of two men within one body.
