This is your last reminder that THIS SUNDAY is all about the prompt, the details of which you can find on Sinful Sunday Monthly Prompt May 2015
While you think on that, it is time for the weekly round-up and this week my guest is sub-Bee. Someone whom I am very happy to be able to call my friend not just on-line here in the blogging world but in real life too.
Sub-bee’s Top 5 pics of the week
I was so excited when Molly offered me the chance to do the round up. It is a meme that is very close to my heart, a place to share without the fear of being judged, a place where confidence can be built and a place to find a wonderful community of like minded individuals. At the heart of that community is Molly, who gives us a space to share, so I would like to say a big thank you for all the hard work you do, I’m sure a vast number of other participants also appreciate the opportunity you give us.
It was only when Sunday finally came round that I suddenly realised what I had agreed to do, so many wonderful images to chose from and I’m only allowed to pick five! I managed to get the list down to ten and then enlisted the help of my partner and photographer to create the final list and so without further ado, here are my top five:
I absolutely love this image it captures that fleeting moment where our attention is distracted, that unthinking glance away from from what our focus should be on. We all do it and most of us groan and hit delete when we see the image. I’m so glad you didn’t do that and you bravely shared that with us. That coupled with the schoolgirl outfit gives us a great insight into the cute bratty side that only one person is normally allowed to see.
This is a wonderful abstract shot. I initially thought the colours were fantastic and then stopped myself and asked ‘did I see something else hidden in there’ and had to scroll back again for a closer look. Yes, I did see what I thought in there, it’s incredibly well done.
Such a powerful image, the composition is inspired. What looks initially to be a simple shot actually is something so much more. The angle it’s taken from is gives us a different perspective on the scene. The way you have your hands over your face could be to hide but equally it could show us how vulnerable you are, shielding your tears from us the viewer.
A fantastic use of black and white, the lighting in this is incredible. The way you have used the light to create shadows that pick out the contours of your body is stunning. I have a big thing for shoulders and I think yours are gorgeous and you are right to be proud of them.
This image had me giggling so much I just couldn’t leave it out and next time I watch the muppets I’ll know Animal’s secret. I think sometimes we tackle the deep serious topics that we actually forget that we’re doing this because it’s fun, so to see an image like this that pokes fun at ourselves is so refreshing.
Blast from the Past
Yes, I am a complete sucker for socks on women. I think they are as sexy as hell, and this image from Penny only serves to support that theory. However I have picked this shot for way more than just the socks. I love how the light is falling over her back creating shadows along the curve of her spine but it is that sly little eye peeking out from beneath her hair that makes us feel like we have just walked into the room and caught Penny up to mischief.
