Hyacinth’s Top 5 Pics of the Week
Since I hardly consider myself a blogger anymore, I was thrilled when Molly reminded me that I was on the list for this week’s Sinful Sunday Round Up. I love photos and the ways they can make us feel – both as the consumers and the creators – and the photos y’all put up this weekend didn’t disappoint! I paired my Round Up duties with The Great British Baking Show (as it’s called here in America) and ugh! Two of my favorite things: a cooking show and gorgeous photos! *kisses fingers*
Here are my top 5 in no particular order:
Focused and Filthy’s Last days of the summer. I’m a sucker for a good blur and a surprise focal point. And here it’s as if Mother Nature gets dibs on our attention first, “You can look at the beautiful body in a second, first look at my flowers!” I imagine that the soft light on her skin is a warm blanket and the tall grasses and tickling delight.

Exposing40’s Calm. This was the first thumbnail I clicked on. The shadows and light and long, gentle lines captivated me and when I saw that it was Exposing40 I literally exclaimed to the sleeping dog beside me. I’m not surprised it was her work as she is a talented artist and knows how to capture a moment in time.
I Am Tasteless’s Down in it. This is the most voyeuristic photo of the bunch and it’s compelling, raw, gorgeous, sensual, and utterly hot. I love the pops of color in the hair and the underwear, the deep browns of the footboard and the whiskey, the black of the harness and the mirror’s edge. The best part of this image, though, has to be the eyes that meet mine, rimmed in smeared makeup and searching…
