This spontaneous photo was taken on our holiday, late in the evening in our hotel room. The lady had found new stay-ups and she was showing them off. We feel that one of the most intriguing elements in this photo is the reflection in the mirror… her face in the shadow and the inviting bed..
We hope that our photo conveys the mood of that night and most of all - that we fulfilled the theme/task of this sunday :)
You Chipmunks went above and beyond the task for the the day and created a submission so good it is a part of the BestofNN. This is definitely the most cinematic photograph we’ve seen today. It looks like a frame or a movie poster from a film I’d love to see. The lighting, shadows, pose and reflection are all absolutely perfect. You two are a very talented couple, and thank you for sharing your confidence and holiday with us tonight.
Dearest ninja/trouble -
I spend a lot of time reflecting. I’m a thinker - a feeler of heavy emotions - i recharge through deep conversations with my friends and family and personal quiet time. The thing is, the longer i’m alive (30 years so far) i feel like i’m reminded by little things that reflection doesn’t change who you are - only action does that. My past has already been written. I’d be wise to learn from it but foolish to live my life jaded by it.
There certainly is no need to be jaded, once a lesson is learnt you can part ways the negative emotional barriers associated with it. And Lioness you look too damn good to worry about change, we’ve all been so lucky to watch you grow and develop into a fierce and confident women and also as a thoughtful photographer and stunning model. Thank you so much for another beautiful submission I think this is my favourite one from you yet.
While it might be a bit too late to submit I’m going to send in my little submission anyways because when I saw the theme was “reflection” today I flashed back to my very first time participating in SS because it was also a reflection submission, then getting a strange sense of De Ja Vu I checked the time stamp on that aforementioned submission and low and behold that photo was submitted April 19, 2013.
Of course, this realization sent me spiraling back through all the memories of this year and how much I have grown and changed since that first submission. In that first photo I was barely 18 having just lost my virginity the month before and still practically a stranger to the world of sex and even to my own body. Now I’m quite experienced in sex and I’m quite confident and in love with my self and my body, thick ass and thighs and all and I’d be lying if I said that NN didn’t do its fair share in helping me transition to person I am today. Anyways this photo is me trying to recreate that very first submission and while I don’t think I quite accomplished the task this photo, the date and theme really do mean a lot for me. I’m so happy to have been apart of NN for so long and I’m looking for another beautiful year to come.
Lots of Love,
Happy submission anniversary, it really warms my heart to read that NN has helped you grow thank you for being a part of SS and letting it inspire you to feel more comfortable in your skin and sexuality. Your write up was so sweet to read, I look forward to admiring you as your confidence grows through out the next year and seeing and reading all the submissions you’ll create along the way.
I submitted a picture of me in a bathtub filled with bubbles and roses earlier, and I figured you might enjoy seeing one of the moments that led up to that. This was taken right before I got my hands tied up and spanked, and all the roses were still together in my hands. It was such a shame that we cut them all up to put in the bathtub later, but it was all worth it in the end.
You can see the bruises he left on my thigh from all the times he’s bit me over the past week. Whenever he gets the chance, he kisses me all over my body, lingering in some places longer than others. He looks at me like I’m a work of art, and it’s the best feeling ever. The bruises he leaves me are like little reminders of his love, and the roses just seem to compliment them so well.
I’m not sure I’ve ever seen someone submit two pictures for one SS, but I hoped this little back story would be appreciated just as much as the story that went along with my first picture.
Double submission used to be a regular weekly part of SS. It confidentiality worked out that each week one ninja would share two great submission. This combo is extra special because it shows a part of the beginning and the end. We are left to imagine and wonder all of the exciting things you two did together in between. Thank you for inspiring those thoughts and this beautiful submission.
The more i look at this picture the more i knew i shouldnt wait until next week to submit. Have you ever had one of those days/nights where you have something important to do? like be somewhere or go to work? well this picture was taken during one of those moments. A late night hangout turned into a lovely sleepover. And a lovely sleepover turned into sleepy morning sex. As I began to put my clothes on to head to work i couldnt help but take a picture of such a beautiful sight. The decision whether to continue to get dressed or crawl back in bed was extremely difficult to make but at the same time it was quite obvious. Crawling back into bed was worth every second of being late to work.
The stories behind the submission add so much to the photograph. Learning about the mood, feelings and people capturing the moment really helps us relate. It sounds like you two had a night to remember, and I’m sure that memory will be even more vivid because of this submission. I really like how the empty space in the bed is filled by the light from the sun. Thank you very much sharing with us.
Pink Floyd- The Dark Side Of The Moon
Definitely a classic, the first time I listened to this I was probably 17 and high and it blew my mind and legit brought a tear to my eye. Thanks for sharing.
I stayed in this dingy sex motel when I was staying in NYC, it is rentable by the hour and has free porn all over the tv channels. It is called the “red room”, the whole essence of the room was so dirty I loved it. The perfect place to take a self-portrait for documentation. c:
Oh you dirty girl, just the thought of you being there is oddly very sexy. I’m glad you took the time to capture yourself. I definitely find myself wondering what you did with yourself before and after taking this submission. I guess I’ll have to fantasize.
Good evening everyone,
Let’s see…when I saw that this weeks theme was “double exposure” I had so many ideas pop into my head that it was quite a struggle to actually make them a reality. In all honesty, I did not take this term in the photographic sense that many may have - to me, it can be used to express duality. For instance, in my life, I am seen as the lady with a good head on her shoulders and very much in control of most situations. However, there is something so satisfying that I find about being on my knees. I am both a saint and a sinner; the reality of my thoughts stay within the confines of my mind where no one suspects the deliciously devious images that flash across it.
Great write up dear, and thank you for reflecting a bit of your good and bad side with us. I am sure no one can imagine the terrible thoughts that cross your mind, and I hope you continue to share same of them with us.
Hello Ninja and Trouble:
It’s been a while since I submitted to you. To be honest I was doubting myself too much, my abilities to create something worth submitting. So I stopped taking pictures for a while. Not long ago, though, a friend reminded me that in order to be creative I needed to create. I was talking about music, but I guess photography counts too, even though I’m a rookie at both haha.
So I learned that the one thing I cannot forget is my own ability to be creative, to invent and to imagine myself. I’ve never done double exposure but it was super fun figuring out what to do and how to do it. This picture gives me the image of unfolding, which is also how I picture creativity. Plus, the idea of being in two places at once is so attractive!
I hope you’re having a great weekend.
One of the best lessons I ever learnt came from one of my professors when he told me that for every piece you feel confident and proud enough to share, you should make 10 before that one that you were not satisfied with. The more effort and practice we put into our work no matter what the art form the better it will be and the more we will learn. Thanks for creating this beautiful photo and sharing it with us, sorry for the delay in sharing it. And imagining two of you is definitely very sexy.
Hey Ninja and Trouble,
I missed this mirror/reflection theme last year, so I’m happy to participate now :)
I’m ending with a quote:
Dear Ninja & Trouble,
So upon seeing the theme, I decided on a whim to get out my camera and give an artsy mirror photo a go. I used my Jack Skellington pocket mirror, because by now, my wardrobe and bathroom mirrors are a bit overdone.. You see, without Hades or a tripod, it’s the easiest way to take nice photos on my own, sigh.. But I digress. It’s a handy little mirror, and when aligned perfectly, I got a shot of my landing strip and pierced nipple all in one. Pretty proud of my efforts, only wish I had an old, nice mirror to use and that you could see more. c;
I am sure there are enough Nightmare Before Christmas fans on Tumblr that your choice of mirror will be much appreciated. It is interesting to see your body from your own perspective, your adorable landing strip and sexy nipple ring make for a really nice combination. Thanks for showing them off and sharing.
