Experiments in Black & White.

(Yeah, I’m cross posting this from my photography blog. Deal with it.  <grin>)
I found myself in a creative mindset tonight and decided to experiment a bit with B&W images. I went back to a set of Jess & Swan Song from June and either did a new treatment of one of the shots I’ve already published or picked out new images from that set to play with. I think you’ll like the results.

Here’s a link to the full gallery: LINK

More images past the fold. Beware, they’re not safe for work.

A full after action report from Dragon*Con 2011 will be coming in a day or two, after SAM and I have had a chance to compare notes. It’s always fun sitting down after a major convention and talking about what/who/where/when/how we did when not together.

We apologize for no updates during the convention but Wi-Fi access was spotty to non-existent all weekend. Now that we’re home, though, photos and all the sweaty details to come. Watch this space.

Several people have asked me for a sample of the kind of pose or photo needed for “Pussy Parade” project being put together by Beast of  The Beautiful Kind blog.   I detailed the project in my last post (here).  Below the cut are a couple of sample shots from the project that I took tonight.

These are detailed photos of a model’s labia.  Don’t look at these at work.

Frolicsome Fetish Photo Fridays
Frolicsome Fetish Photo Fridays avatar

Welcome to the beginning of a beautiful trend.  Each Friday I will be posting another fun, frolicsome, fetish focused photo I have taken at some point over the years.   They will never be work safe, but then this entire site is so far from work safe I really shouldn’t have to tell you that.

The following photo is of one of my past lovers and regular nude and erotic model, Aimee.  If you’ve seen my photography gallery site, you’ve seen this beautiful red head all over the place.

Enough words.  I know what all of you want.  So here.   Enjoy.

(update: this was originally slated for posting on my photography blog at DreamlandVisions.com.  I added an extra link to Smart Assed Masochist’s blog post that is not included in the original)

I’m sure by now most of you have seen this article titled: ‘Should “Fatties” Get a Room? (Even on TV?)’ over on Maire Claire about fat people.  If not, I’ll sum it up with this quote from the original article:

“So anyway, yes, I think I’d be grossed out if I had to watch two characters with rolls and rolls of fat kissing each other … because I’d be grossed out if I had to watch them doing anything. To be brutally honest, even in real life, I find it aesthetically displeasing to watch a very, very fat person simply walk across a room — just like I’d find it distressing if I saw a very drunk person stumbling across a bar or a heroine addict slumping in a chair.”

The author, Maura Kelly, goes on to a few lame attempts at justification but I’ll let you go read it for yourself.

There are some really incredible responses out on the net.  A few of my favorites are:

“Who wants to see happy fat people in love? Not Marie Claire!” – Fatshionista
“What Was Marie Claire Thinking With This “Fatties” Piece?” – Jezebel

And even my own Smart Assed Masochist got into the act with this rather scathing response:

“Fuckin’ Fat People!” – Happy Sadist

I could editorialize all night about the state of the fashion, television, entertainment and movie industries and their treatment of body types.   A few get it right; such as Dove with their Campaign for Real Beauty.

Instead of continuing to wow you with my ever so eloquent prose, I will show you examples of the kind of lady Maura Kelly would be grossed out to see, especially this way; in all her naked glory.

The model, K’la, is a dear friend and lover whose photos have graced the walls of art galleries, fetish shows, living rooms and websites for years. She is a life model for a local college and continues to model for photographers and painters as time allows.  She truly is a beautiful woman, inside and out.

I leave you with what I hope is a very eloquent and loud “FUCK YOU” to Maire Claire and the editors who approved such an unbelievable article.

(warning: photos are not work safe, but then so is this blog.)

Alchemy Festival, here we come! Maybe..

Thursday’s finally here and we’re all ready to head out to Alchemy for a bit of Burning Man fun, southern style.  Well, once the a/c compressor on the van is installed, we’ll be heading out.

So what’s going on at Alchemy this year that might be of interest to all your wonderfully kinky people out there?  I’m glad you asked.  Click the More to see what’s going on and how much fun you’ll be missing if you’re not there.

All that text and not a pretty picture to be seen.

While SAM and I figure out what we’re going to do to graphically spice this place up a it, here’s a little something I shot last year to keep your interest (or something) up.

Not safe for work photo after the break.  Link is to my photo gallery.
