A Month of Celebration

red candle

This is the fourth year that I will be participating in February Photofest and I really had no idea what to do for this year. Honestly, where I was prepared in previous years, this year I was not. When I saw Molly’s post about the February Photofest 2017, I sort of panicked and almost decided not to take part this year. Then I remembered: I have just passed the magic number of 7 years of blogging and what better way to celebrate that than to look back on the seven years. Not only for a day, but a month long, since this is also my birthday month and the month I turn 50!

So people, brace yourselves as I take you on a trip down my blogging memory lane, and of course, since February Photofest is all about photos, I will share some of those too. Not new photos, but old ones that will be re-edited.

On this day in 2012…
… I wrote a story for Wanton Wednesday, called Orgasmic Echo. I still remembered how I felt when I wrote it, thinking back on walks I have done on the slopes of Table Mountain in Cape Town.

On this day in 2013…
… I posted the fourth and last part of my story, Bar Entertainment. While writing this (in a very horny mood), I kept a specific restaurant in mind where Master T and I had dinner just the week before. How I would love to attend a ‘party’ like this!

On this day in 2014…
… I posted an edited image for my first February Photofest. We were house-sitting and after we watered the plants, we saw it as a perfect opportunity to take some sexy photos in a different environment than our own bedroom.

On this day in 2015…
… I posted an older image where I hold a candle. The image is quite abstract and I it originally came from a series of images we have made for Valentine’s Day. My theme for 2015 was Polaroids Past, hence the Polaroid feel to the image.

On this day in 2016…
… I shared an image of some bright colored rope in our toybox. My theme for 2016 was sharing images of items in our toy box.

I am taking the photo from 2015 and reposting it today. Back then I posted it in black and white, but I cannot find that I ever posted the original. I have tried to edit this, but in all edits the image lost some of its magic, so I am posting the original as it came off the camera.

I love that there is so little, yet so much to see in this image.

  3. Beautiful image! 🙂
    I am using Penny’s Throwback Thursday idea for old photographs. I am also taking the chance to edit them in Lightroom – hopefully to make them better.

  4. I think this is so beautiful and so very sexy. The glow of the candlelight glints off your jewelry and holds so much promise of what may lie ahead. I can imagine how warm the candle must have felt in your hands and on your thighs, and also of how still you needed to be so as to not drip wax. I love this photo for many reasons. It speaks of submission and much more; of control, Dominance, and things which happen in the dark and only the dark!
