Sinful Sunday

.

NOTE:  I managed to participate in Sinful Sunday – a body-positive photo meme run by Molly Moore – 19 times in 2017, approximately half of which were in response to first-Sunday-of-the-month prompts.  (You can click here to see all my Sinful Sunday contributions to date.)  Meeting the prompt challenges over the past year has been an enjoyable creative exercise.  And overall, participating in Sinful Sunday – while sometimes difficult (I long ago lost sight of my ‘self’ in the mirror; the camera lens is… worse) – has been a positive experience and an affirming outlet through which I’ve been able to sloooowly ooch my way out of my photographic slump of recent years.

This photo is in response to the first prompt of the new year.  You can expect to see more of these – more of me – in 2018.  And not just on Sundays.  I hope you’ll come along for the ride.  🙂

      Thank you! I placed the camera face-up on the floor in the middle of my space (it’s a very tiny bathroom), and just proceeded with my usual routine.

      I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, but part of what I like about these prompts is that I get to experiment. Sometimes the results are surprising! 🙂

      I think a lot of people participate for similar reasons.

      I have an odd dysphoria when it comes to my body where ‘image’ is concerned. I feel very comfortable in my own skin. But I don’t “see” myself in images, especially when all I’m wearing is my own skin. If that makes sense.

      Thank you!

      One thing I’ve found with Molly’s prompts is that everyone interprets them so differently. Sometimes when I have an idea for a shot, I wonder if there won’t be seven other people who do the same exact thing. But that’s never the case. Each photo is always unique, which is one of the things that makes these prompts so fun.

    Really like this shot and will certainly look forward to seeing more this year. It was sinful Sunday that really motivated me to put more time and effort into my blog. I love the fact “its all about the image” – and i so like seeing how everybody interprets the prompt and also week by week their photos.

      I’m very much an “all about the words” girl, so having an incentive to alter my focus and concentrate on creating images has been a broadening experience.

        And your writing oozes that you are “all about the words” – I too love to write but i also enjoy the SS image thing because there is not always time enough time to write and publish a written post – so on those occasions putting out an image is perfect.
        Very much enjoy your writing but also looking forward to seeing more of your images 😉

    Oh I will definitely come along for the ride. This is a great shot, I love the angle you have taken it from. The view up your body is very sexy and that bright flow of hair at the top draws the eye right into the image

      Thanks, I was hoping the brightness would draw the eye to center. I’m glad it worked. 🙂

      Thanks for the continual inspiration and support. I’m going to give your February Photo Fest a go this year. 🙂

    Great shot and completely unexpected twist.

    I can’t wait to see more of you on Sinful Sunday, it’s such a wonderful meme and the prompts always give us a challenge!

      If you’re using a camera phone, you may want to check to see if your app responds to voice commands. I discovered that feature on my new phone and it makes it easier to put the camera in don’t-have-to-hold-it positions, which makes for an easier time capturing certain angles.
