Friends. Photography. Adventure.

Fuck me and marry me young…

Snow on the river and two by two

Took a lot to live a lot like you, I don’t

Go there now, but I hear they sung

Their “fuck me and marry me young”

Some wild idea and a big white bed, now

You know better than that, I said.

Driven Like The Snow, Sisters of Mercy

I bloody love sentimentality. And if the precursor to sentimentality is getting drunk with my oldest best friends in the world then, bring it on. Which is how I recently found myself promising to get some Goth into Exposing 40! So here you are my friend, a little Sisters of Mercy, a lot of kohl and the long black velvet gloves I wore to my 18th birthday party. The Manics-inspired fishnets shot will follow soon, I promise…

    Oh, these are intensely gorgeous! I absolutely see this as a music video. Can’t wait for the fishnets!

    OMG. I die. This is one of the most amazing Sinful Sundays ever.
    AND Sisters of Mercy? Wow woman, what are you doing to us?
    Gorgeous gorgeous – the composition is just fantastic x x bravo x x

      Gosh, thank you! And loving that you love Sisters! Have been listening to them since about 8 when I stated applying the black eye shadow and through the self portraits and edit…have been loving the old tunes! Xx

    but this is so fucking hot…damn!!!

  5. Jack (and Jill) (@jackandjillcpl)

    That last photo is one of the most intense I’ve ever seen anywhere. That gaze! I thought the gloves were the sexiest things I’d see here, and then my eyes locked with yours. Too alluring!

  6. kinkybikermom

    absolutely stunningly beautiful photos!!

  7. SilverDomUK

    Wow! Just wow!

  8. The Photographer

    Wow ! Powerful creature … The glaze speaks volumes : wonder what happened “after” πŸ˜‰

    • Exposing40

      Well it’s always useful having a favourite mentor and keen voyeur at the end of the line for editing advice… πŸ˜‰

      • The Photographer

        Eyes wide… Open πŸ˜‰

    i need to get you to do my makeup πŸ˜‰
    love this set

  11. kittykatsbitsandbobs

    I love these! I was a wee goth in my youth too and still am addicted to my black eyeliner!
    Beautiful images.

  12. BOO-leander Plumekin (@OleanderPlume)

    The sultry expression on your face in the last photo – smoldering!!!

  13. Molly

    Yay for a bit of goth. I love the second image down, the over exposure of the shot works so well to define the darkness of your hair and deep black of the gloves contrasting harshly with the over-whiteness of your skin.

  14. KaziG

    Such a gorgeous sexy series… bring it on!

    What an image! I love every single thing about every single one! I really need to get me a Photographer if this is what could happen on the other side. xx Hy

    • Exposing40

      These were self portraits actually, but I still recommend finding yourself a photographer friend! Xx

      • Hyacinth

        Even better! How do you do that?? A tripod? Timer?

        • Exposing40

          I haven’t actually got a tripod that tall at the moment so I had a chair next to the bed and rested it on a couple of books to get the exact height I wanted, then used self-timer. I had it on auto setting but put a light on the other side of the bed to create a burst of over-exposure as I wanted to have a glare like you get with snow (because of the song I quoted). My photographer friend helped me with the edit and darkened my hair as it’s highlighted blonde and I wanted it dark and gothy. Xx

          • Hyacinth

            I gotta up my selfie game… lol

  16. Vida Bailey (@vidabailey2)

    Ugh, beyond gorgeous. And the Sisters of Mercy! What a delight. Loevlovelove.

  17. ouizzi

  18. SassyCat

  19. Modesty Ablaze (@ablazingmodesty)

    I love those gloves . . . and that last picture is so stunningly sexy!!!
    Xxx – K

  20. cammiesonthefloor

    Beautifully and artistically done. Love the gloves, they seem somehow to add a more sensual side to the photos

  21. sub-Bee

    I love a bit of goth (or quite a lot) and I love that you used Sisters lyrics! That last image is so fucking hot!

  22. Marie Rebelle

    Stunning images!
    Rebel xox

  23. Chintz Curtain (@ChintzCurtain)

    Wowzers. These are all amazing and so beautifully shot. I think the second one is my favourite, though; there’s a languidness to it that’s incredibly appealing. And I adore the gloves, by the way. Jane xxx

  24. Cheeky Minx

    This is such an intensely sexy and sultry series. I have to admit the final two images are my favourites, with the second just beating out the third (featuring your stunning gaze). For me, there’s something about the sensual and dreamy contact of your gloved hand to your breast that sets my imagination racing.

  25. sassycoupleok

    Those eyes and the thought of being touched by those gloves, so sensual indeed !!!

  27. theotherlivvy

    Wow, these are incredible! Smoking hot!! Xxx
