Before I hand over to this weeks guest on the round-up let me give you my usual reminder that the monthly prompt for August is Vintage/Retro. Now that is done, all I have left to do is to welcome Charlie in the Pool and let her present her top 5 pics of the week
Charlie’s Top 5 Pics of the Week
When Molly asked me to do the round up this week I was absolutely over the moon about it, having contributed to Sinful Sunday for almost a year now I look forward to the round up every week, wanting to know if any of my favourites made it into the top 5.
Before I get onto listing my top 5 I want to say a massive thank you, first of all to Molly for creating such an amazing creative community and to every single person, past, present and future who has contributed to Sinful Sunday. I find it incredible that a group of people, most of whom have never met, can be such a warm, welcoming and nonjudgmental bunch of people. Taking part has really changed my life, it has taught me so much about life, love and sex. It has made me push myself, both creatively and emotionally and for that I thank you all.
The composition and angle of this shot is beautiful. The muted tones create a sultry sensual feel to it which along side the words makes me adore this image. I absolutely love the stockings too.
As soon as I saw Molly’s image I knew it would be in my top 5. The editing is absolutely incredible. The vibrancy of the colours and the contrast between the red and greens make this image look like a fairytale painting.
Who would of thought that bandanas would make a brilliant addition to a toy box? Out of the three images that were posted the first one has to be my favourite. The way the bandanas are tied frame her breasts perfectly. The lighting draws your eyes to the dog tags and then the colour of the bandanas move your focus to the rest of the image.
I know I probably shouldn’t say it but this is my favourite image this week. The angle of it is just incredible, it’s like we are spying on a private moment of reflection, which taps directly into my voyeuristic side. I have nothing else to say about this image other than I absolutely love it.
This might be a view that exposed 40 has never seen before but what a fantastic view it is. The angle of the shot, the sunlight shining on her skin making it look incredibly soft and smooth, her wonderful curves all make up a beautiful landscape. I’m so glad she is celebrating it and sharing it with us.
Blast from the Past
When I went through week 104 trying to pick an image for here this one just seemed to demand to be the one in the limelight as it is another fabulous example of an Vintage/retro style image (which is also the prompt for the 1st weekend in August) I love the way the pink lipsticks just pops out of this image, making them the real focus and grainy edit and muted tones of the rest of the picture just work perfectly to inspire thoughts of 1960’s retro chic
