Sinful Sunday Weekly Round-up 540
Welcome to the weekly round-up 540. Little shout-out for the September prompt that is out now.
Syd’s Top 5 Pics of the Week
It is a delight and honour to take part in Sinful Sunday and be able to pick 5 images. This project has always delighted me and has always seemed to be a great example of everyone coming together and celebrating our bodies in a positive way. There was a particularly strong showing this week, but here are the 5 that really spoke to me
This celebration of friendship filled my heart with joy. The ability to bare one’s soul to another as well as baring one’s flesh. The center of the pictures, the hands held together, speaks volumes with just a small gesture.
Working in Oxford, punting has been something that has always been around. This relaxed pose seems to be the perfect expression of the idea of punting. Taking your time to relax and just float downstream. And then when I spotted the bird in the distance and giggled at the idea of it playing Chicken with the boat.
I loved the playfulness of this, lifting the fabric to give a clear view, even though nothing is hidden due to the wetness. You can almost feel the heat beating down in this picture and the desire to escape it in the cool water.
When you first look at this you have a moment of “Well this is just a lovely picture” before it hits you. I love an outdoor picture and this has the combination of nature and nudity that I love. And don’t we all want to live in a land of no pants?
Artwork with depth. At first, the wax drew my eye and made me think of Damien Hirst’s Colour Space Paintings. But then you see little details that add depth, like the collar and the bruises under the wax. Beautiful to look at and like all the best art, worth a second glance.
