Ninja and Trouble,
I haven’t had much time for photographing (or tumbling) lately, but when I saw this week’s theme I just had to participate. I immediately knew what I wanted to capture.
We’re in the middle of a move, and have already packed almost all of our stuff. The stuff that’s left is a complete mess of boxes and bin bags. I normally don’t compose my backgrounds very much. If it’s messy in my home, then I want the mess to be part of the picture. But this time I actually put a lot of effort into the composition. I only wish I would have had better light and a decent camera (but the later won’t take too long now…!).
The paintings are made by my love. The one in the middle was a gift for me, and it’s titled “Awaiting The Great Collapse”, after my blog. It’s the first in a series, and I love them all incredibly much. What could be more perfect, than to celebrate this painting for the NN art theme?
Then there’s a small sculpture on the left. That’s made by Pauline Wästgårds (whom I had a photo shoot with last weekend), when I was modeling for a sculpture class at the art school this spring. You normally don’t get to see much of the finished product when modeling, so I’m really happy to own this sculpture.
I loved the idea more than I love the result, but you’re always your own worst critic, right? Really excited to see what all the other ninjas will come up with!

This is definitely your best composition yet, your submission has three separate areas that all work so well together. The layers of the bed at the bottom, your body, the painting and sculpture and the two paintings above you showing the curve of a women and a birds hand. And all the shadowy details surround the painting in the middle, making it stand out the brightest. I don’t think you could have lit this photo better, and the camera you used is perfectly sufficient, you really captured something beautiful. It’s very nice to see you back on SS thanks for your thought and effort.
