Friends. Photography. Adventure.

A White Shirt

We met in a wine bar. The kind that has a lot of unvarnished wood, candles everywhere, and giant olives in tiny bowls. The kind that sits on the fence, wanting to create an illusion of intimacy for couples, but not wanting to lose the after work crowd.
It wasn’t a date. He’s a photographer and his new project has piqued my interest. He likes my blog and wanted to meet me. We were there to talk about working together.
I didn’t want to dress for a date, but I wanted a slight turn of his head, a dip of the eyes. I didn’t want him to imagine fucking me, but I did want him to imagine photographing me. A white shirt, buttoned not quite high enough. Bright lingerie teasing through gauzy material.
The chemistry was good. Chemistry between a photographer and a potential subject, or sexual chemistry? I don’t know. Is it the same thing, or different? “I wish I had my camera,” he said, “I want to photograph you now.”
Then a hand across the table, opening the white shirt a button further. A grainy iPhone shot. A kiss. Plans for more photography.
A White Shirt

  2. can’t beat a white shirt with a flash of colour BMN x

  3. Lovely, and I would love to see photos made by him, showing the chemistry you felt between you. Sounds like a new adventure 🙂

  4. The picture captures the mood of the setting and words perfectly. I can almost imagine the slightly caught breath as the button was undone. Xx

  5. I really like your necklace.

  6. Oh, you temptress you! I’m smiling, lots, reading this post,

  7. Damnit, my laptop freaked out before I’d finished commenting*scowls*
    Anyway, what I was going to say iiissss…..I love the little flash of lingerie, and that I can imagine the mishievious grin on your face as you were getting dressed! Nicely played 😀

  8. I love the teasing tantalizing moments.

  9. So tempting, the allure of what lies beneath…

  10. Look forward to seeing more photos 🙂

  11. Fantastic shot – I want to know what happens next! Maybe I’ll write a story…

  12. Sounds like wonderful chemistry! I’m sure you’ll create some excellent work together 😉

  13. This wonderful – words and image both. Well done. 🙂

  14. The chemistry is both but the sexual overtones are high. More to this story is definitely needed !!

  15. This sounds like a tale to be continued

  16. Oh my gosh, this is so exciting! Such a great, spontaneous photo and I am dying to know what happens next in the story… Xxx

  17. Oh wow. I love how that photo happened. Even without the build up, it’s got such a beautiful vintage feel, but with the story…well, I agree with what Livvy said – I want to know what happens next 🙂 xx

  18. Love this post, your outfit definitely teased as much as you wrote about.

  19. Like i’ve said before, I’m a sucker for white shirts, especially men’s white dress shirts.
    sexy little peek 😉

    • Love it when my husband and a few other men I know wear crisply pressed white shirts, so sexy and can be the stuff of dreams. 😉

  20. Such a tease…both the shirt and where the story could lead…

  21. This is soooo great! I love the way you built it up. The reasoning behind choosing your outfit. Then the teasing payoff with this fantastic and spontaneous photo. I can’t wait to hear where this story goes next 🙂

  22. I loved reading your description of the wine bar, and your encounter in general. And I was absolutely mesmerized by the shot. The vibrant colors and the slight blur made me feel like I was right there with you, perhaps enjoying a glass of wine. I hope you’ll share the results of any future photo shoots!

  23. excruciatingly sexy shot…
