Before I hand over to this weeks guest, a heads-up that the prompt for July is out now and you have just over 2 weeks to get working on your ideas. Sinful Sunday July 2016 Prompt.
This week it is my pleasure to welcome Zoë from Sex is my New Hobby to the round-up
Zoë Top 5 Pics of the Week
I enjoyed the study in contrasts that this shot represents. Blood red and snow white. Soft focus and hard handcuffs. Innocence about to be corrupted…
At first glance, this appears to capture a simple nude beach experience – sun, sand (everywhere, sand!) and a lovely curve of breast front and center. But then E40’s guest explains that she and her husband were on a libertine holiday for their anniversary and this moment was immediately preceded by some very public mutual oral sex. Hot!
Nudity plus leaves? I couldn’t help but think of the proverbial fig leaf. The placement of this particular leaf is quite unconventional but still a very effective way of achieving modesty. Well, a kind of modesty 😉 A fun shot!
I like the way the light is used to frame the little tableau of hastily discarded shoes, knickers, and a string of beads that didn’t survive being taken off. For me, the title (“Rush”) transformed a static still life into a dynamic image, the middle frame of a story where the absent preceding and following frames were suddenly easy to imagine.
This photo just leapt out at me and is my very favorite this week. There are lots of elements that I really enjoy: curved lines, straight lines, repeating pattern, low color contrast, the way her skin tone relates to the wood in the background, an unusual angle that is sort of a bodyscape. Striking and lovely.
Blast from the Past
There is something very intimate and vulnerable about this image. The placement of the heart shaped locket works on so many levels as our hearts are not just an organ that pumps blood but in our minds it is also the place we associate with love. Some broken hearts can be fixed but others take more than the surgeons knife to put right.
