Sinful Sunday 370: lightbulb moment

I’m a rank amateur in photography. Strictly a mobile phone person, no tripod. Hell, I don’t even own a selfie stick. So for me, half the challenge of Sinful Sunday is finding new ways of balancing the phone and getting the shot.

This week I had the genius idea of using my light shade as a tripod to get a never-before-seen birds-eye view. The bonus touch I hadn’t anticipated was the lightbulb acting to preserve my anonymity. Sometimes these things come together nicely.

Sinful Sunday 369: suntrap

This month’s Prompt Week was determined by chance, the spin of two wheels. In this photographic Russian Roulette I got “overexposed” and “outdoor”. 

My circumstances mean outdoor was really not going to happen, so I had to think how to bring the outdoors in. And so recently, on the first bright morning of the year (or so it seemed), I remembered the suntrap in my bedroom. And I let the sunshine in.

Sinful Sunday 365: what lies beneath

Recently I stayed up in London to attend a business awards do at a posh west end hotel. Dress code was black tie, but they were very non-specific about the formalities of accompanying undergarments. 

So to Miss’s specification I made sure our Skype later on had an interesting reveal.

Sinful Sunday 364: prompt week – humour

In many ways the respite of prompt week for Sinful Sunday for this month is a bit of a Busman’s Holiday. The use of humour in my SS photographs is an ironic reflex action for me; strategically positioned items to block full frontal nudity is as much a deep insecurity about my body image as an indulgence in levity.

As a way of swerving my body-image issues, humour is a way of deflecting sexual attention. That may sound bizarre in such an act of exhibitionism, but by using a humorous set-up I can pose naked but with the get-out of saying “oh, I’m not taking myself seriously, you see”. It deflects accusations of pretension – that I might think myself worthy of sexual desire and attention.

I’m aware this is not necessarily a healthy attitude to have but it’s my way of grappling with the issue. It’s also usually a way of working a theme of my week into the photo.

This weekend I’ve been at my parents who’ve had plumbing issues. Meaning I’ve only been able to come up with a dribble in the mornings.

Sinful Sunday 362: dirty

This week I had a lovely couple of days away at a hotel retreat in the dramatic Cheshire countryside. It was great to get away from it all. Soak up a little of the atmosphere in a relaxing break. 

I’m not saying the Skype with @fireandhoney was dirty but I had to take a bath afterwards.
