“The filter on that photo is absolutely perfect, btw – looks like an early 20th-century shot of some French prostitute, who’s probably about six months away from dying of TB (but in a good way)” Exhibit A
I started my photo a day project as a way to stay connected to both my partner and to a new friend where I didn’t want lockdown to snuff out that glorious lustful new relationship energy. Then I looped American Chap into my daily missives because even though the chances of us ever being naked together again are wafer thin, our chats always put a smile on my face and his dick pics are hot as fuck.
And I’m so glad I embarked on this endeavour. There have been times where I’ve been a bit grumpy with it but overall it’s been a blast. I’ve had moments of inspiration and snapped an image in seconds, I’ve plotted out some far in advance, and sometimes I’ve wandered aimlessly round my flat trying to work out what the fuck to shoot! But every single one has been met with a positive response from at least one of the recipients. I’ve never been left hanging!
Sometimes one just hits the spot and I get enthusiastic guttural responses from all three. On other occasions I send one into the ether with a fairly good idea of who’ll react most enthusiastically. I don’t know what I expected to get out of it but what I’ve had is consistent creativity which has been energising and a reason for daily contact at a time when it could have been very easy to feel lonely and disconnected from both them and my sexual self.
One thing I’ve done is give away the decision on which of the week’s seven images becomes my Sinful Sunday image to each of them on a rotating basis and I’ve enjoyed guessing who’ll choose which image. This week should have been been Exhibit A’s choice but I decided to make the selection myself. I made it not for the photo but for his comment. I think it maybe my favourite response of the whole three months!
