Sinful Sunday Weekly Round-up 305

Yes we are already galloping towards March and the next prompt is out now for you to work on. March Monthly Prompt.

This weeks round-up guest is Maria from Maria Open’s Up. She has been a long time contributor to Sinful Sunday and her images are always a delight. She has a truly great eye for composition and it is wonderful to have her back in this space picking her top five again.

Maria’s Top 5 Pics of the Week

It’s been just over two years since my last Sinful Sunday round-up which means it’s been not quite three years since I learned about Sinful Sunday and started participating in this gorgeous, beautiful community. I love it. I love the unique and varied personalities that take part, I love the range of reasons that people participate, I love the warm care that everyone gets when they enter here. It’s a special place. And it was super fun to get to do the round-up again. Thanks Molly!

In addition to all of the warmth and acceptance and nurturing, the other thing I love about this place is that it’s a forum for us to express ourselves artistically. Sinful Sunday has allowed me to get personal with my art in a way that I never have before. Even the concept of “my art” is a thing that I wasn’t comfortable talking about before Sinful Sunday and for that, I’m grateful.

I know Sinful Sunday is many things to many people (that’s the total beauty of it after all) and every week I’m delighted, inspired, and challenged by the wide range of sexy, beautiful, interesting, boundary pushing images. So it’s no surprise that picking five favorites out of such a wide selection of gems was no easy task.

In my first pass through, I thought a did a pretty good job of narrowing it down and then had to laugh when I noticed the large number of tabs I had left open as favorites! However, I gave myself a day and came back to the open tabs, and really pondered what drew me to each image. The results are below.

Accidental Masturbator

Accidental Masturbator says he doesn’t like this photo, and I do understand about how the circumstances of taking a photo can make you like it less or more, but I have to say on just visual merits, I think it’s outstanding. The phone camera and the photoshopping that he was worried about add a painterly quality to this that I really love. If you told me this was done in acrylics or even pastels, I would believe you. The colors are beautiful, the shapes are intriguing and nearly abstract, it takes a split second to see what is there.I also love, love, love the metallic of his zipper and the belt buckle. They almost seem to glow and draw your eye around the image.

Modesty Ablaze

Modesty’s photo stories never fail to make me smile. The bravery and the cheek and the sheer joy she has in being the star of her scavenger hunt adventures is such a delight and I’m always happy when a new adventure pops up on Sinful Sunday. This series of photos was particularly delightful. The opening photo of her standing at the bus stop is so casual and cool! I love the quilted jacket and stripe-topped stockings. It’s a completely incongruous image, yet she fits perfectly into her surroundings. And the images of her on the bus! That smile is everything!

Molly’s Daily Kiss

Is there anything better than Molly in nature? She has the ability to really embody a character, especially when she’s in her outdoor element. I suspect she’s really a nature goddess masquerading as a human. This photo just made me smile so much. Here is an adorably sweet fairy girl (and very mischievous too – she’s probably got magical potions to work on for fairy school, but instead she’s snuck off to the garden to read!) And I get all that personality just because of one toe curled over the other. I love how one tiny element can totally transport an image and turn it into a full story. Of course it’s not just that toe – it’s the vibrant color of the book and the greenery and the perfect stone toadstool, and the just slightly off-center positioning and all the little details that I know are not happenstance when it comes to a photo by Molly.

Pain as Pleasure

As soon as I saw this photo I knew it would be in my top five. The image is so full of detail, every time I look I see something new. There’s a gritty tone to the image, probably because it looks like it was taken with a phone in low light, that really adds to the sensual, sexy, smoky mood. I love that we can see the shadow of the crop he is holding along the sub’s body. And the pose of the domme, leaning back as she snaps the pic in the mirror, just exudes confidence, sex, relaxation and control. This photo tells a definite story and while the photo absolutely stands alone, I would suggest reading @BibulousOne’s sexy, cathartic accompanying blog posts describing this event. What a treat.

Penny for your Dirty Thoughts

I mentioned in my comment on Penny’s photo that I thought she was a goddess of the self-portrait and I totally stand by that remark. Her portraits are often beautiful, surprising, challenging, emotional, fun and sometimes all of those things combined. I’m inspired by her work and this particular photo really spoke to me. You can see her face clearly in each layer, but also the details blend together to create motion and emotion. This is one of those images that says so much to each individual viewer. I bet if we did a poll, everyone would have a different gut feeling about what the many faces in this image imply. It’s wonderful.

Sinful Sunday Week 183 – Happy Come Lucky

There is something about this image that just draws me in. I look into Honey’s eye and I see a wickedness that I recognise and it makes me smile a knowing conspiratorial grin. I guess I see a fellow naughty girl in this image and that is what draws me into it.

Sinful Sunday Monthly Prompt March 2017

The prompt for 5th March 2016 is: Weekends are for…

When writing this prompt I was aware that it would fall on the weekend of Eroticon and so I thought picking something that was fairly open for interpretation would be a good idea but that also might lend itself to some Eroticon inspired images for those that are attending. So show me what sexy, erotic, sensual things your weekends are for…

The prompt is published here on the site mid month, which will give people approximately 2 weeks to work on their idea before linking in, on the 1st weekend of the month. The prompt is completely optional and you can link in as normal on that weekend whether you have used the prompt or not. The usual Sinful Sunday rules will, of course, apply. Please make sure you have read them recently so that you are fully aware of what is and is not allowed.

As always interpret as you wish, or disregard altogether and do you own thing.

Have your post ready to go for Sunday 5th March 2017. Any questions or queries can be posted in the comments below, you can email me [email protected] or tweet me @mollysdailykiss

Sinful Sunday Weekly Round-up 304

Some of the monthly prompts inspire more than others. That is the nature of the beast when it comes to these things and it can be very hard to predict which ones will get everyone’s creative juices flowing and which won’t. Minimalism was one I felt would stretch people’s skills but I also hoped that it might inspire folks to explore a style of image that they had previously not attempted. I think the list of entries speaks for itself when it comes to seeing if that was achieved. As a result my job this month was a tough but very enjoyable one.

Molly’s Top 5 Pics of the Week

Hush: It’s a Secret

Butt plug left on bed with crumpled sheet as backgroun

One of the key things about minimalist photography is using negative space to create an impact. Parallel Secrets has used that concept to great effect here. The plug sits in solitary isolation on what is clearly a bed, hinting at it use but what is really clever in this image is that the negative space, the creased sheet, adds to the narrative of this shot.

Tabitha Rayne

When I first looked at this image I got completely lost in the Tabitha’s face because it is definitely the dominating feature in this image. It was only when I went back to it that I noticed the title and how the light above her head makes us the ones ‘holding still’ so that Tabitha can look at us. It has an eerie, clinical feel to it that gives me goosebumps.

Teachers Have Sex

Wartenberg wheel on womans thigh

This will be her last Sinful Sunday for a while as she is off on some adventures but she has definitely ended her current run on a high point with this beautifully shot image. The focal point is absolutely spot on, right at the head of the pinwheel whilst the rest of the image which is soft and delicate provides both context and contrast.

Exhibit A

Nude of man dissected by rungs on a ladder

This one has an slight retro erotic art feel to it. I think it is the slight graininess and the lack of contrast that gives the impression of it being taken on something other than a digital camera but what I really like about this shot is how the ladder dissects Exhibit A’s body into parts. I think this is an inspired and very clever piece of photography.

Orgasms and Wine

Black and white minimalist image of curvy woman in black underwear

I love this shot. The dark black of her underwear is in stark contrast to the white or her skin and the background but I really like about this image is the complimenting curves, there is the curve of her hip, the curve of the panties across her tummy and the curve of the bra that arches up between her breasts and finally the little series of scalloped curves across the top of her thigh. It is so simple but so beautifully done.

Blast from the Past

Sinful Sunday Week 182 – Maria Open’s Up

Woman naked in dark attic

Look what I found lingering back in week 182. A minimalist image! There is stunningly little detail in this image and yet what there is is incredibly powerful. We can just make out the wooden rafters and the light around Maria’s body reveals just enough to show that she is naked but the fact her face is lost in the darkness means we can only guess why, is she happy, scared, feeling powerful or powerless. Your imagination must decide.
