I thought that today, as we’re just on the verge of spring and everyone’s thoughts will be turning to the finer things in life after a dreary and cold winter once more, that I would enhance you’re day with a few beautiful women. Now, I know from experience that whenever I post photographs of beautiful women, most readers allow their attention to wander from the topmost features to those assets displayed elsewhere, so I shall allow you, just this once, the chance to look without the need to disguise your interests.
Of course I can claim this to be one of the serious subjects I turn my attention to now and then – and I’m not kidding myself in any way here – since it combines my interest in photography and my love of beautiful women. It is big business, this market for beauty, the marketplace which uses beauty and, for some people who manage to turn things around, beauty that uses the marketplace to get to where they wish to be.
Not that every beautiful woman who appears in a photograph of this kind is likely to make it in any particular marketplace, at least, not long term. There are relatively few who have succeeded in making a name for themselves after beginning with nudity, and those who do try to hide this past as best they can.
I wonder whether it is the same for men? Not that the market for nude photographs of men is as big as that for women, but would a man who has worked as a nude model be able to put all this behind him and still make a good, public career?
I was reading the German business magazine Brand Eins recently – I admit to reading it every month! – and they had a photo feature. What caught my eye was not so much the settings – deserted cellars, dank, dark and dirty – nor the models as such – fairly ordinary people rather than glamorous models – but the fact that all the women were photographed decently nude and all the men kept their shorts on …
So, that’s enough for today, put your tongues back in and carry on as if nothing unusual had happened!
Love & Kisses, Viki.
