Dearest Ninja, Trouble and readers,
The last time I tried anything yoga related was a few years back when they offered the course at my health club. Ever since I stopped my flexibility has taken a toll and stress got the better of me.
It was exciting to find out that this week’s theme is yoga, it certainly was fun (and challenging) to try meditation again…in the nude ;)
I hope you guys have a fantastic week! x -mr-extraordinarypositivity.tumblr.com
It looks like you’ve got a great place to relax, and yoga and meditation are definitely a great way for your body and mind to do so. Hopefully you can keep up your practice and lessen your stress and improve your flexibility.
I took this photo that morning not realizing i was going to use it as our submission, but i couldn’t help myself from asking him after seeing how perfect his back looked covered in marks from my nails and fingers and the shadows from the sun coming through my window dancing on his spine. i was going to wait until next week but i felt compelled to share.
Really a beautiful and intimate portrait, I’m glad you decided to share.
I’ve been taking self-portraits for at least ten years now and have never really done anything with them. The past few months I’ve been editing all of the digital images down to something manageable. After all that work it was still hard to finally start posting them and put myself out there. So I started a new site and blog just for those images that will be posted as close to the order in which they were shot, starting from 2004. Here’s a shot from 2012 in Big Sur.
Very cool, both because the photo is awesome and because I went to Big Sur last summer so I’m familiar with how beautiful the landscape you were inspired by. I really like the scratches on the ground of this photo. I’m glad you have started a new blog to show off your self portraits. I hope you’ll share more of them on Submission Sunday as well.
With Spring coming in, it was time for a major cleaning of my apartment. That also means that I had to throw away socks with holes in them. That’s a big deal right there! I usually hang on to those things until they’re basically shredded. They’re just not something I ever think about buying. Super random subject I know, but hey, it happens!
I like how evident the theme of spring is in most of the submissions today, and spring cleaning is a very important part of embracing the new season and starting fresh. I hope this inspires other ninjas to do the same thing. Great job with the photo as well, you did a great job capturing the detail and definition in your leg muscles and the veins in your hand.
Hey Ninja & Trouble,
I was sweeping my house yesterday and decided to take a picture. I normally don’t do it naked, but the weather was really good :)
Have a great day!
One of my favorite hobbies that I have not shared with the blog before is my job of sweeping. I’m glad you enjoyed yourself and took a photo mid sweep. Happy to hear the weather is good for you too, the sun looks very nice shining in on your body. Thanks for another great submission.
Hello Ninja and Trouble. Your submissions are looking amazing so far but i guess that’s the usual. I never really heard much about “double exposure” or what does it actually mean. So this was quite interesting to my knowledge.This a image of one of my favorite places to ride and relax but like everything that we like i can’t go there all the time or have it near me. This place always made me feel good and somewhat powerfull. I think the sun shows the energy of the place even when i caught it with the clouds of a fire in the horizon. Hope you two are having a “double exposure” time making you two one:)
Thanks I agree, Submission Sunday this week has been especially beautiful and interesting I feel and I’m glad the theme taught you about something new. I really like the framing of this photo and how you’re almost holding the horizon. It looks as if it should be a film still from a psychedelic film from the 70s.
First time submitting. As a naturist, both nudity and nature are major parts of my life, and I thought this theme perfect to show both of those together. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of being nude in nature—be it skinny dipping or walking through a forest. It’s the way we were born, the way nature intended. -VieNue
I totally agree. Ninja and I were so lucky while on our trip in Montezuma to find a secret waterfall where we swam and hung out naked and totally free and it felt great. I’m glad you’re such an enthusiast. This submission captures that beautifully. I love the way the trees cut across your chest.
Happy Sunday Ninja & Trouble!
Do the clothes make the man, or does the man make the clothes? I have to admit I am new to double exposure and armed with only an iPhone, I tried my best. I have to dress up for both of my jobs and I loved the idea of stripping away the professional layer of myself and showing just me in the flesh. This theme has produced some awesome submissions today and I thought all week on how to incorporate my own spin to it. I’ve noticed that when i tilt my computer screen back it almost makes the clothing picture show more and the opposite when i tilt it forward!
I’m excited to see what else you both have in store for future Sundays!
Have an awesome week,
I really like the style of these double exposure submissions where someone is revealing what’s beneath their clothes. It’s a really interesting contextualization of undressing someone with your eyes. I also like getting a chance to see how ninjas dress. I feel like I’ve gotten to know so many of your bodies but don’t have any idea of your sense of style so thanks for this. Great belt too.
First submission to you, but have been watching/following for some time from another page. I’m honestly not sure if this submission works, so feel free to pass, if it doesn’t for you.
I took two photos of myself that I already had and played with the idea of imagining two slightly different versions of me about to engage in the spirit of sexual adventurousness.
I’ve been drawn of late to the idea of experimenting with men now and then, mostly with a woman in the mix. But I find it rare that I am actually attracted enough to men and some of their energies to make that happen in the flesh.
I remember once in early imaginings, dreaming of having a near-clone, so I’d know his sensibilities matched mine, and we would dare anything. It’s less about self love, and much more about knowing the first foray will be with the right partner to make it better than imagination.
Until I meet a good match in real life, one that I am truly drawn to, this is a little dirty daydream - one is me, the other the match, one of us mounting the other, sans inhibitions, as the woman in my life watches and moans with heated pleasure from very close by.
Well this is one of the submissions that gets better the more attention you pay to it. I really enjoyed your write up it reads like a semi science fiction fantasy. It’s great to hear from an open minded male who can see the attraction in himself and his sex. Good luck finding someone you connect with and are attracted to. Thanks for the submission.
I’ve not submitted in a long while, but I’ve been working on my skills as a photographer and editor, and double-exposure seemed like a good challenge. I have opted to do a triple-exposure I’ve entitled Self-Love, and I hope you two like it!
The guys seem to need an extra frame this week both of these gentleman decide to go with three photos instead of two. Luckily they both made interesting compositions. Thanks for sharing yours.
Hello Trouble and Ninja!
Spring is officially here, so I decided to put on (take off?) some spring colors with a pop of pink and some teal. But it’s also the season for spring cleaning. We go through our homes and toss out everything we don’t need. I wanted to capture that by stripping myself down, going from a vest and bow down to just my skin because starting anew starts with looking at ourselves.
I’m sure all the ladies will be very happy to see this submission. And you bring up an important part of spring, parting ways with the old and embracing the new. Thanks for showing off your fashion and your submission.
hello Ninja and trouble!
i had a very brief period of time where i got to shoot these and edit them together. but that time really didnt feel rushed. i grabbed my camera, the clothes flew off and i felt at home. and its great that you two provide such a safe haven for people to be comfortable with themselves, to learn and grow and explore. so thank you. :)
We definitely try our best to make NN a place where people can be themselves and we’re lucky that it inspires such great imagery from the community. This submission is gorgeous and feels very sincere. There’s a lot about it that I find visually interesting but I think my favourite detail is your cute double belly button.
