Total Eclipse Of The Wookie

Total Eclipse Of The WookiePrompt: “Soft Focus”

This picture was taken as part of a set that I posted last year, but didn’t use as it didn’t really fit with the others. The slight blurriness as the camera struggled to deal with the direct sunlight gave it an almost natural “soft focus” without fiddling with settings or doing any post shot special effects. I’m happy that I finally got a chance to use it.

Standing Stone

Standing StonePrompt: “Outtake”

This picture is kind of a catalogue of errors and I always wondered if/when I’d ever be able to use it.

It does demonstrate some of the difficulties of taking selfies. It was taken at mid-summer last year. Believe it or not, there was actuially a fair bit of light still in the sky as in that part of the North of Scotland, the sun barely sinks below the horizon. It’s not “midnight sun” by any means, but it is very definitely twilight. Anyway, over setting the flash means like it looks like it was taken in pitch blackness when it wasnt. Also, despite having first framed it and carefully working out where I’d need to stand to get me and the stone fully in the frame, I somehow managed to adjust the zoom while setting the timer.

If it could go wrong, it did. I have, however alwats quite liked the photo, and I’m so glad Molly finally gave me an excuse to use it.

Darkest Depths

Darkest DepthsPrompt: “G is for Greyscale”

#SinfulSunday has been one of my favourite memes since the very start of my blogging career, I love it for its creativity, but, above all, I love it for its sense of community, its inclusiveness, and the way that it fosters the concept of body positivity to enhance each participant’s sense of self-esteem and self-confidence. Those of us who take part, talk about it helping us with our own image and perceptios of ourselves.

The physical, however, is only part of the story. Our mental and emotional well-being is also hugely important. It is generally accepted that mental health issues affect one in four people and, within this particular community of ours, it seems that the prevalence is even higher (although that may just be down to our willingness to openly discuss topics that many people find difficult air).

I have always been open about my struggles with depression, both on my blog and on Twitter. I have, as some are aware, been going through a particularly dark spell recently. This week’s photo is actually one I took quite a while ago and I’ve never quite found the courage to post it as it didn’t seem to fit with my perception of “positivity”. Recenltly, however, Cat and May have got together to form Sex Bloggers For Mental Health – #SB4MH and this seemed like the ideal way to promote another meme that supports a cause I feel very strongly about.

Exposed

ExposedPrompt: “Double Exposure”

Standing in front of my hotel window, seeing my reflections in the double-glazing. Not a “double exposure” in the classic photographic meaning of the term, but still appropriate in the circumstances.

Full Frontal FurrinessPrompt: “F Is For…”

Given the prompt and the fact that this my 150th #SinfulSunday post and that so many people suggested that after seeing last week’s image, that I would turn around this week, it seemed appropriate, to share an image that (perhaps) shows off what I am most well known for…

Unexpected Bonus

Unexpected BonusPrompt: “Bokeh”

When I took this photo, I quickly discovered that my lens wasn’t clean and, as a result, this was not the shot I was trying to take. I quickly cleaned the lens and retook the photo (posted here).

Obviously, I didn’t discard the first attempt because I quite liked the effect the smudge on the lens had produced; I just didn’t think I’d ever use it.

Imagine my surprise when I discovered that I had accidentally and inadvertently taken something that actually worked with this month’s prompt…

Molly says: “Confession: I have looked at this image a LOT. I find the way the light is falling across his cock highlighting the ridge of vein is beautiful and the way the light seems to be pooling in his hand somehow connects the two. I feel like he is about to touch himself, that I am waiting, for that moment to happen.”

Molly says: “I really did spend ages with this image and in the end realised I was almost treating it like a spot the difference searching back and forth between the two ‘men’ for how they were the same but also different.”

Neoprene Man

Neoprene ManPrompt: “I Am…”

As I get older, through no fault of its own, my body becomes less happy with the stresses I subject it to. There are times when I definitely think I am getting too old for this shit…
