It is time to welcome my first Sinful Sunday guest of 2015 and this week I am delighted to hand over this space to the lovely Stella Kiink but before we hear from her please can I draw your attention to the February Prompt
Stella Kiink’s Top 5 Pics of the Week
Each week we get to peek into the lives of our fellow bloggers through the images they share for Sinful Sunday. Sometimes we laugh with them, or cry with them. Sometimes we applaud their bravery or question what exactly is happening or where that extra hand came from. Always we appreciate the vulnerability of putting yourself out there, of showing us a little more than you may realize.
When the opportunity came up to do a round-up I had to say yes. And even though the yes was strong and immediate, behind it there was nervousness. How could I possibly pick just five from the list of always fantastic photos when I can barely decide what I want for breakfast most mornings? I did it though and I hope you like my choices as much as I do. For the record, I have not chosen a single top photo. All are winners and I’ve listed my choice of five in the order I viewed them.
The blank space along with the black & white really emphasizes the coldness. It is often difficult to hold back, to not unnecessarily crowd the focus of a picture. As a counter measure we tend to zoom in and make the focus the centre or the picture. This picture shows us just how wonderful blank space can be. Besides, the scarf and positioning of her hat made me laugh. I want to run in and snuggle her.
Kazi has given us such a stunning picture. To be honest I was quite surprised. Don’t get me wrong, I love Kazi’s pictures but she is the queen of the macro shot and they are often much more playful than serious. Here we see her softness, and it is absolutely beautiful. I love the play of light and shadow, the soft focus, and the little bit of colour on her nails that pops in contrast to her bright skin and grey background.
Understanding FlutterbyI couldn’t stop looking at this picture. It tells a very interesting story. Right away we see the marks. The contrast of their brightness against her beautifully pale skin is striking. Next we see the peace in her position and the beauty of her submission. Then we realize the strength, her strength, in her choice of implement and tingle at the thought of it connecting. Finally we see the crop, used and laying across her back. It suggests she has had enough marks today but lays there as a reminder that there will be more.
I kept coming back to this picture time and again. I love a big strong man but what really makes this one for me is her. She is small beneath him, blindfolded and tied to a cross, but she still has what appears to be a look of defiance on her face. Completely open and vulnerable she purses her lips and turns her head as if to say “You don’t own me.” His hand on her throat and the way he leans in saying “Mine” suggests otherwise.
His pictures always make me smile and this one is no exception. There’s more to it than just the smile though. Aside from the sense of humour that shines through there is also a casualness that makes it appear as though what he is doing is a completely natural and everyday occurrence. The state of his erection makes me want to join in his game.

Blast from the Past
Sinful Sunday Week 77 – Beck and her Kinks
There is something amazingly intimate and sensual about this shot. I find the idea of what is being shown here amazingly erotic. This is about loving another persons body with all their imperfections and scars which make them the person you love. That is quite a wonderful thing in my opinion
