Just over a week to go until the first weekend of April so make sure you have read what the prompt for that weekend is.
This week on the round-up it is my delight to welcome @sub_bee_keeper who is the other half and photographer of A to sub Bee. I will admit that he was a little bit (possibly an understatement) reluctant to write a round-up as he seems to like being the silent partner but with @sub_bee help I happily got him to agree to it.
@sub_bee_keeper top 5 pics of the week
Well, time does fly. It seems like only yesterday that Molly and Bee were conspiring to convince me to judge a Sinful Sunday. I’ll be honest, even though I take a lot of our photos for Sinful Sunday I tend not to find time to enjoy the other entries. Being judge has forced me to find that time, thanks Molly… and Bee.
Before I go into my top 5 I’d like to congratulate everyone who submitted. I had a hard time narrowing down my list and it wasn’t until I sat down to write that I realised I had 6 and not 5 in my list… whoops!
The fact Sassy Cat is looking straight into the camera gives the feeling that she looking into the viewers eyes, submitting to them. Her mouth is covered denying her a voice and forcing her, as she states, to just feel. The picture’s simplicity cleverly suggests an incredibly intimate scene.
This photo is amazing. The location, the light, the colour and last but definitely not least the model. If Maria had wings she could easily be mistaken for a woodland fairy candidly getting caught on camera before disappearing back into the forest.
I’ll admit it, I have a soft spot for blood that this image caters for. The contrast of the black leather against the pale skin means the red drop, although small, stands out as the main feature. In addition, the spikes of the glove tease the thought that more blood may be on its way.
I’d love to know how this angle was achieved, did you book into the hotel with a stepladder under your arm? If you ask Bee she’ll tell you I’m a fan of interesting, or as she puts it “funky”, angles. This creates the strong diagonal line that parallels the flow of her hair really draws my eye down the image.
I’m possibly attracted to this image because of jealousy that this is a tie I’d like to put on Bee but due to reasons can’t. We both love rope and seeing it tightly wrapped and tied, restricting all movement sums up why some people pick up rope in the first place. The addition of the photo of the after-marks just emphasises how constricting it was.
