I wrote about strength in last week’s Sinful Sunday post but little did I know I’d need all my strength to deal with a difficult house issue this week.
The strength to deal with the situation at hand and sort it out in the end even if it took 3 days and lots of stress. I was reminded by family how I did well with the situation and had comfort from Internet friends which gave me the feeling that I was strong enough to take charge and do what was needed, maybe not as perfect as others but for me it was good.
I had planned to do some more shots based on last week’s image and idea from that shoot but with life getting in the way I felt this image from last week’s shoot was perfect for this week rather than post nothing.
Life is never easy and no matter how hard it gets I am reminded of the strength I have. The strength to get through the tough times and the strength I need to make things fun, to be positive with not only myself but to be positive to others and even if it’s just a kind word.
The below image respresents strength in many ways, not only the fact I needed lots of strength for the multiples of photos I took during this shoot but the fact that I have this strength within me when I need it, even if it’s not physical strength to hold me up but mental strength.
I feel a desire for pain, pain of a different kind. The pain that will take all of lifes struggles out of my mind, that will calm me down and give me a certain pleasure. I will allow others to leave marks on me using various implents to do so and then enjoying the visual results from their efforts
I will feel all the pain but it will be worth it, the marks will stay for some time a reminder of all that who left them and the trust in them I placed. I will feel free and happy, especially as I go to work others not knowing what has gone on but noticing the wry smile on my face, asking questions about how I am.
I love when I get creative urges. The way an idea forms in my head and gets me excited to take photos, edit photos and ultimately share said photos for Sinful Sunday.
One such urge has been in the back of my mind for a year now. It was born from a day when I sat and drew one of my images with a pencil as shown below.
If I’m going to do it justice then it takes the right idea to pop up, planning said idea into something and taking the time to excecute said idea so that’s one reason it’s sat there along with the not having a desire to blog for a bit this year.
I’m being vague with my idea as I don’t want to spoil it, but below is the drawing which kicked it off. Below that is also the original image this is taken from.
Whenever I’m shooting photos I often take a good few of them. A lot of these are to ensure I get the shot I want especially when it comes to being framed right and in focus. Other times I often play with angles I shoot at, various poses I do and in some cases switch out what I’m wearing or swap props to see what’s what at the end of my shoot.
When I’m done I tend to bin a lot of stuff for good reason (Blurry, bad lighthing, off angles…etc) but do end up with one I use for say the blog and a few extras that just sit there for another time.
The below is such a photo from a shoot I did just under a year ago where I posted one of the images here.
Huge congrats to Molly for reaching 600 weeks of Sinful Sunday, what a milestone that is and definitely one to proud of and celebrate.
My first ever post for Sinful Sunday on the blog just so happened to be for week 500, and 50+ photos later I find week 600 coincides with a belated 2 year anniversary of my blog. So what better way to mark both occasions by taking some photos.
The below photo combines a few out of many aspects Sinful Sunday has brought to me since I started posting for it on the blog. I’ve certainly come a long way in 2 years with the photos I take and they are now much better shot than when I first started, with editing and filters used where needed to enhance some of my shots.
Here’s to many more weeks of Sinful Sunday and hopefully I’ll still be around to celebrate week 700.
