Sinful Sunday Weekly Round-up 225

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

Maria Opens Up

Woman in patterned mirrorI 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.

Lil Miss Shalla

Self portrait of Shalla in vintage styleIf you have not visited her actual post and clicked on this image to see it full size then do so now, I will wait……

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.

A to sub-Bee

Vintage style portrait of Sub-bee wearing retro lingerie

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.

Cammies on the Floor

Vintage erotic photography

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.

Malflic

Suit porn

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

Sinful Sunday Week 106Ouizzi

Male nude low light shadows

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.

Sinful Sunday Week 225

The prompt for 2nd August 2015 is: Vintage/Retro

This could be an image of something vintage or retro if that tickles your fancy but my main reason for posting this prompt is to try to inspire you to create an image, through a mixture of both composition and post production editing  that results in an image that has a retro/vintage feel. Don’t think your image has to be edited in sepia tones either, as you will see from the examples on this page, colour images can be made to look retro too.

Sinful Sunday is all about the image.

Sinful Sunday Weekly Round-up 224

One last reminder, this weekend will be August and so time to reveal your images for this months prompt – Sinful Sunday August Monthly Prompt and now I will hand over to this weeks guest writer who is the lovely Indy Jones from The Shingle Beach

Indy’s top 5 Pics of the Week

“I squeaked. Then I squealed. I wanted to tell everyone, only I could very quickly imagine the scene as I tried to explain to my non-Shingle friends how big a deal Molly asking me to do the round up was, and just why she was asking me…
All these amazing people, contributing all these amazing images, such positive and supportive feedback, and the amazing bloggers Molly gets to do the roundup – so yes, just why was she asking me?!?

Once I’d got over the giddiness…
It turns out I’m quite a simple creature.
I love curves: bodies that – ironically, despite how long it took for me to see the beauty in my own – have the same generous ins and outs as I see in the mirror, whether natural or assisted by underwear.
I’m a sucker for bottoms, shapely legs, the beautifully lit and the slightly noir.
I make no apology for the fact that my choices for this week’s roundup reflect those likes so strongly – but then it’s like you lot knew those were the buttons to push…

Understanding Flutterby

Woman crouching down in corset

Maybe it does deserve a better title, but a rose by any other name etc. It’s no secret that I’m rather partial to corsetry and stockings, and this is a beautifully dark, sexy, confident take on that look. Two images this week made me think of Frank Miller’s Sin City: this is one dame you don’t cross. And the boobies themselves? Pert, full and perfect. I love the way they catch both light and shadow, demanding closer attention.

Sex is my New Hobby

Naked woman on chair

I once tried doing something like this, and just got stuck. Bah.
It’s very clever making the chair the focus of the image. Does anyone else see twin stylised female figures in the negative space created by its back piece? And then, *just* out of focus, the more subtle, but more beautiful, figure of our real subject – and that tantalising glimpse of nipple.

Cammies on the Floor

Man and woman silhouette kissing

This was the second image that made me think of Sin City – but a much less doom-laden than standard installment. Great comic book lines and texture, so much being said with so little. A strong male figure, with a beautiful woman in his arms. But look at the expression on her face: no one in Frank Miller’s world ever looks that happy! It’s a whole story in one frame. *sigh*.

Charlie in the Pool

Woman with feet up in the sun

I love this image from Charlie; there’s a sense of complete relaxation, in both her own body and in the beautiful surroundings she finds herself in. On a wet and windy Sunday, when I was up to my neck in news and current affairs for the first time in ages and despairing about that slightly, it was always going to be an attractive image – and then there’s that beautiful pair of legs.

Filth and Erotica

Womans butt with belt

So let’s just go through that list of features I’m drawn to again, shall we? Curves – check. A (beautiful) bottom – check. A filter adding a grainy, gritty, slightly-too-light-for-noir-but-near-enough feel? Check. And the fact that the belt is being held so it resembles a bow, making a gift of her body…”

Thank you to Indy for her wonderful round-up and you can find her on her own blog; The Shingle Beach and on Twitter @TheShingleBeach

Blast from the Past

Sinful Sunday Week 105 – Penny for your Dirty Thoughts

Penny self portrait in the mirror with cat

This is such a fabulous self portrait image. The strong blue walls could so easily overwhelm Penny within the image but by using the mirror to create depth in the image that doesn’t happen, instead we have a wonderful candid shot of Penny and her feline model.
