Brigit’s Top 5 Pics of the Week
Doing a round-up isn’t always difficult for me. Sometimes the options are small in number, or the “best” simply rise to the top like cream. But, this was a tough one for me. So many of these images yanked my chain for so many reasons. In the end, I opted to go with the images that made me really feel something…some emotional connection or longing or deep questioning curiosity. And even then, I had to narrow it down. I had at least another five that were competing with the ones below, but in the end, I had to make a decision, and these are the ones that resonated the most.
I am usually drawn to black and white images, when crafted well, which is what drew me in to this one at first. But once there, I had more to consider. All of the circles (the high neckline, the collar, the lip ring, the earring) made this image feel whole to me. And anytime an image can make me think beyond it, I feel the photographer has done a good job. The edge of a smile led me to imagine the tiny upturn in the corner of her eyes, and the glimmer in her irises. This image was also crafted well (the tilt of the body, the darkness of the shirt, the gleam of the collar, the shadows). I came back to it a few times before I accepted that it was just one of my favorites because it made me feel happy.
There’s a story waiting in this photo. I have to admit, I didn’t read the paragraphs that accompanied it until I’d looked at it several times, and each time I returned for another consideration, I found more to intrigue my imagination. The background, her overalls, the play of the light central in the photo. I wondered where she was, I wondered where the light was coming from. I wondered what else was in the shadows. There was a bit of a spooky feel to it, I have to admit. And then I read the paragraphs that followed it, and found that there really was probably quite a bit of story to be found in this setting.
I’ll be honest, I just wanted to swim right into this picture. The perfect blue-green water, her face upturned to the sun, her sparkling skin, and her breasts buoyant on the soft waves…the sun-warmed rocks. This photo looks like a private, little heaven to me. And her smile just invites me right on in.
Oh this title is so perfect for this photo…I agree with the pre-parenthetical, but normally, I am not a fan of dick pics. This one, however…Goodness F*#king Gracious! What a beautiful damned thing that is! I love the light and shadow and the intricate detail…the tiny wrinkles beneath the head and around the press of his thumb, and soft ridges of the veins within. I came back to this one several times just because it turned me on.
This one struck me slowly and pulled me in. The title is apt, because the shadows own this photo. The soft lines (of what I am assuming are transparent curtains) on her flesh, the shadow of her hand across her left breast and her face across the top of her right one. And then her finger, pensively resting on her cheek. It is hard to tell what emotion she is feeling, especially because of the direction of her body and face. I don’t get a feeling of sadness, but I do get a feeling of quiet introspection. This is a woman in her natural state, with no audience…no need to put on a smile. She can simply be herself.
