Lets start with my usual shout out about the monthly prompt. You have just over a week to get your images ready for the September Prompt.
Now on with the round-up and this week it is my great pleasure to welcome the sexy duo that you know as Holden and Camille
Holden and Camille’s Top5 Pics of the Week
Welcome to our very first Roundup! When we posted our initial Sinful Sunday contribution back in February, we had no idea how marvelously welcoming this community would be to us. We have become acquainted with some amazing people, and we have seen brilliant photographic creations that have thrilled and inspired us. Thank you for all you do! Narrowing our favorites to five was quite a challenge, but even the debate between us was fun…
If you told us that this was a painting, rather than a photograph, we would not have argued. The branches, bushes and gate serve to frame the subject perfectly, and the pose is at once elegant and casual. Every single element compliments another in a flawless composition. She has certainly captured the beauty of truth!
It would be an understatement to say that Camille had a visceral reaction to this photo. The sharp focus on the rope in the foreground had her involuntarily reaching for her ankle, as though the fabric was wrapped around her own skin. There is a quietness to the image, a holding of breath while steadying for events to come. It’s wonderful.
We can only imagine how memorable this adventure was, with the lovely Tabitha Rayne, and all five of the photos presented were remarkable in their own way. This one combines soft skin in contrast to the brick wall, and the slight tilt in her stance brings in new curves and shadows that invite another look. Simply breathtaking.
The notion of loving an ill-fitting garment is familiar, and Malin is exactly right about how exquisite her bra is. We are always struck by how strong and confident she appears in photographs (mirroring her writing), and pairing the bra with jeans and a belt was an excellent choice. We hope she decides to keep it, and take it out for photos from time to time!
Our top pick from this week’s images is another one that provoked tingles in Camille. But this time it wasn’t her ankle. The focus and setting suggest a still frame from the kinkiest film noir ever made, and the moisture remaining on the toy leave us breathless for more details (and photos.) Just a brilliant reflection on recent events.
Blast from the Past
This was posted as part of a Easter Sinful Sunday and I just love how Penny has taken something that I am sure many of us associate with childhood and twisted into something much more adult orientated. What inspired thinking that is. This image also shows how good an eye Penny has for fabulous composition. I love the large blue negative space and how that picks out the blue in her eyes and in the jawbreaker. This really is just fabulous work
