A story is the only transportation I require.

Comfort imperative.  Clothing optional.

 

This Sinful Sunday photo was inspired by Indigo’s Art Twist #2, featuring Augustus Egg’s painting, Traveling Companions, which depicts two women (who look remarkably alike) traveling in a carriage wearing an abundance of high-necked, long-skirted, multi-petticoated 1860s clothing.

      Thank you for the inspiration.

      I meant to play along the first time, but I misunderstood the timing on the Manet. It sparked several thoughts in me though, about nudity and perceptions of power. At some point in the future (after February Photo Fest), I plan to write on the topic.

    I had to go and look at the prompt and then come back to this. I love your interruption of the image, which is very odd in its own way and this captures that essence perfectly

      Thank you.

      Yes, I saw your “missing person” article in response to the first one. 🙂 I think the Art Twist is a fun concept for a prompt.

    Wonderfully clever response to the prompt. It was my suggestion so I’m very keen to see what people come up with. Yes, stories are a wonderful form of transport, to far away places and to the inner reaches of our hearts and minds. CP xx

      Thank you!

      Several things stood out to me in that painting, which I tried in my own way to represent here. The thing I saw first was that one of the women in the painting is reading, which – although a favorite activity of mine – is impossible for me to do in moving vehicles; thus, the seed for how to proceed was planted. 🙂

      It’s a new meme, currently on its second iteration; I’ve linked to it in the text if you’d like to know more. 🙂

      (P.S. I left you a comment on your lingerie selfie post, but it disappeared. Not sure if it got lost in the ether, or…? Possibly it’s in your spam folder. Just FYI. 🙂 )
