Today is the first day of February and it’s the first Sunday of the month. The first Sunday of the month means that we have been set an optional prompt for Sinful Sunday, and this time the prompt was ‘abstract photography’. I always try to post a photo that fits in with the prompt, as it teaches me more about photography in general. We (Master T and I) were going to make a new photo for this month’s prompt, but decided against it since I wanted to follow a theme for this years #febphotofest, which also starts today. Do you remember Molly’s #febphotofest? In short, you post one erotic photo a day, a photo made by yourself or a photo made of you. You can read the rules on Molly’s page.

The theme I have decided to follow is ‘Polaroids Past’. Now this is another meme you might want to know about, especially if you have some old photos you want to share. Some months ago Modesty posted an old Polaroid photo of herself and came up with this meme: Polaroids Past. Since I have photos going back as far as the year 2000, I immediately wanted to join in with the meme. But, I do not have any Polaroids of myself. Only old digital photos. I actually never had Polaroids of myself, but I remember how I found a stack of Polaroids in my dad’s closet. All of them were nude photos of my mom. I think I was about 11 when I found this and I wasn’t shocked at all. In fact, I found it quite interesting, and of course, not many years after that I owned my first camera and started making photos of myself. Unfortunately, all of those have been torn up when the church people I lived with back then, found my stack of photos.

Now, after having given it some thought and having done some planning, I am ready for my series of Polaroids Past for the #febphotofest2015 and with each photo I will share when and for what the photo was made or whether I could still remember my feelings of back then. Sometimes photos, just like music, trigger memories about feelings and thoughts of way back! I am taking you on a trip down my memory lane…

The photo I am using for today has been made when we were busy making photos for Valentine’s Day 2012. I was wearing bright red stockings and black and red shoes. As always when we are making photos we got carried away and just kept on coming up with one idea after the other. This photo was the result of one of those ideas. It’s a photo I like in its color version, but I really love it in black & white.
