This week it is my turn with the round-up and it was prompt week again and so the focus was on; Simple Pleasures but having looked through all the posts I really feel like maybe it should have come with the tag line of ‘Intimacy’ as that seems to be the underlying narrative that so many of the images have, which when you think about it, is really rather wonderful.
Top 5 Pics of the Week
I love the whole mood and suggestiveness of this image. It just feels so decadent, I look at it and memories of wonderful indulgent lunches with scintillating company flow through my mind. I can imagine the dress I would be wearing, the stockings, the company and the promise of what might be after the meal is finally finished. When an image inspires your brain in that way you know it is a great shot.
There is something about this image that just holds my attention. I think it is the little details; the worn tattered cuffs, the full sensuousness lips, the tangle of hair, the peek of cleavage, and the pose. Is she about to reveal herself, to let us into her moment or she in fact withdrawing, shutting us out.
I think any woman reading the words that go with this post will identify with this moment, the simple pleasure of taking your bra off. No matter what size your boobs or the comfort or fit of your bra there is something very wonderful about the moment when you take it off and this beautiful image captures that perfectly.
I love this image. Holding hands is truly one of the simple pleasures in life, it is how we connect physically with our loved ones especially when out and about. It is the most simple gesture of a loving connection that I think we humans have and as such is terribly powerful. The fact this image was taken outdoors invites us into that moment with these two lovers. It feels intimate, real, loving and tender.
And when the time for holding hands is over then maybe you might get to share some perfectly wonderful moments like this. I love all the time I get to spend with my partner but there is something very special and very calming about spending moments like this together and this image captures that moment so well, relaxing in each others arms, naked, close, intimate….. perfect.
No blast from the past this week as we are going away this weekend and I need to be packed and in the car in 2 hours!
