Modesty Ablaze’s Top 5 Pics of the Week
Sinful Sunday has become a weekly thrill for me . . . as I’m sure it has for many people. In an age where mainstream society seems to have an obsession about appearance and conformity, I’ve always loved the creative and fun ways each week’s contributors post photos and images that challenge the norm . . . and champion the real.
Images that make me Smile, make me Tingle, make me Stare, make me Wonder and make me Gasp.
And SS never fails to arouse all of those reactions, so choosing just five from last week’s collection has been incredibly difficult, but thrillingly fun all over again . . .
This wonderful, fun, image had me giggling and gasping the instant it “popped-up” on my screen. It is simply the most fun hotel door “knob” hanger I’ve ever seen . . . and I want one just like it. Complete with the appendage of course . . . because what an enticing breakfast mouthful it makes. A five-star trip-adviser review from me!!!
A position we are all familiar with I’m sure, though perhaps for differing reasons and differing circumstances. But Candy’s teasing words leave no doubt as to the impending circumstance in this case. And her lovely bottom seems just about to push out of the screen, pleading for that “attention” she so obviously desires. A wonderfully tingling image!!!
I’ve loved all of May’s photos from the Moors and this is another stunning image . . . the title of which seems so appropriate. It just draws me in each time I go back to it, leaving me staring at the soft curves and shapes of her lovely body . . . and the soft focus of the foreground seems to amplify the detail of the moss and grass. The tilt of the discarded hat and the muted tone of the colour, adds to the feel that we are viewing one of those photographic plates from Victorian times. A passionate trance indeed!!!
For me the beauty of a picture often lies in it’s power to evoke a completely different response, or sense of wonder, from every person who views it. To imagine the prelude to it’s composition, and how the moment it captures, unfolds. Building a story in one’s mind that is probably quite different to the actual event in which it was taken. And Jo’s beautiful tutu and shoes certainly set my mind racing!!!
And so to . . . gasp !!! I was sure it was a painting, as those petals and stems scrolled down the screen. A wonderful, stunningly beautiful, painting . . . even as those toes teased into view. Even more as those toes teased into view. A still-life painting hung on a wall before me. Beautiful on white enamel, beautiful on the flesh. Gasp again . . . and again. Simply stunning!!!
