I know I say this every time I write one of these round-ups but bugger me picking 5 this week was almost impossible. This months prompt of Vintage/Retro really seemed to inspire people to get creative and the result is a whole host of amazingly beautiful images that made it even harder than usual to select just 5. Some people in Twitter encouraged me to break the rules but I think that way lies madness and so I have stuck to my own rules, disciplined myself and after much umming and ahhing made my selections.
Top 5 Pics of the Week
I loved both of Maria’s images this week and really struggled with selecting just one for the round-up but in the end I went with this one because it was the one that I found myself getting lost in. It is one of the those images that makes you find yourself studying in order to pick out all the little details that are hidden within it; The red of her lips and the way her mouth appears to be open in a gasp, the pearls around her neck the shape of her dress over her bust and if you really look closely the glimmer of her eye in the left hand side of the image staring back at you, us, the viewers. Such a clever image that reminds me of those tinted turn of the century erotic photographs.
See what I mean? You have to see this image at full size to truly appreciate just what a fantastically beautiful shot of Shalla it is. The use of light to frame her face and add contrast to her vibrant red hair is amazing and the way it accentuates the line of her jaw is just fucking beautiful. She looks like something out of one of those old fashioned fairy tale books.
I joked with sub-Bee, asking whether she put the wall paper up especially for the prompt. She says she did, but I am not sure I believe her. However it compliments her outfit and the whole feel of the image perfectly to create this wonderfully sexy vintagesque shot. I love how the colours compliment each other and the way the girdle hugs her figure and the thick retro suspender straps, the shoes, just everything in this image works.
This is just sooooo damn good. The hat, the parasol, the light, the pose, the red pop of her lipstick is all just utterly perfect. If anyone totally nailed the vintage/retro prompt this week it was Cammies on the Floor.
There are three different edits of this picture in Malflic’s Sinful Sunday representing the 1970’s, the 1960’s and this black and white which as he rightly points out is timeless. It could be the 1950’s or 2015. It is a true classic. As a general rule suit porn is something I find a bit soulless but this image totally fucking does it for me. There is something about the casual confidence of his pose that suggests a man very at home with who he is and the angle of the shot makes me feel like I am sitting on the floor watching him. There could worse places to spend a Sinful Sunday.
Blast from the Past
I think this image is absolutely stunning. I love how he appears to be disappearing into the shadows but there is just enough light to show us off perfectly the contours of his beautiful masculine back and butt.
