feminine [19/52]

I find that, each week as I’m searching for something to shoot for the focus52 prompt (and yes, I stump myself too) I really want to be shooting people.

Wait, that didn’t sound right. heh.

I need some people in my photos.

(there, that’s better)

With summer approaching, I’m looking forward to the possibility of able bodies being more readily available.

(and somewhat cooperative)

Alas, this week is not that week.

May I present … feminine :)

you're blushing

you're blushing

dress it up

powder your nose

powder your nose

brush it on

brush it on



No people, but that last one is kind of close, no?

    I love that bottle. Love it. Perfect for this week’s theme, too.

      I have a summer one – she has on jean shorts and a croptop. LOL!
      It’s Jean-Paul Gaulthier. One of my favourites.

    Wow, Jan, so impressive! I especially love that white dress. The processing is sublime. So good. So good.

      Thanks Gail!
      I wasn’t sure of it, and almost didn’t post it. Such a doubter.

    I love the Jean Paul Gaulthier bottles! I am a total perfume bottle hoarder. I should take a pic of my collection! LOL I love them all…even if I don’t like the scent. I just love the pretty bottles! Shiny, girly things make me squeeee. LOL

    My favorite perfume bottle is actually from the 1980’s…and it is a bottle of “Cher” perfume. It was called “Uninhibited” and it fit me like a glove! It had this deep, musky vanilla scent. It was delicious. The bottle was designed by Bob Mackie with a big (sharp!) crescent moon on the top. Oh, how I just adored having my name on a bottle of perfume!

    I have to find a photo of it somewhere!

    Here! The New Bottles

    The old bottles were much tackier. I liked that about them. LOL Slogan was “Bottled…but not contained.”

    Oy, I LOVE THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      ROFL!!! OMG I’d forgotten about that! and I totally agree – the first bottle with the moon was awesome.
      Total keeper for you :)
      Bottled but not contained … nail on the head, right there!

    Oh, Girl I love these shots. I love the way you’ve processed them. And I am totally in love with the white dress (and that gorgeous piece of furniture). And I’d love to know how you get that great border on your photos.
    sorry I’ve been so busy lately, and haven’t had time to play along. I did think of you this weekend, and thought I might have a good shot for the prompt. But. *sigh* nothing turned out as I hoped.
    but nect week should be different. right. eternal optimist.

      That’s a plain old pine armoire that I bought years ago. I moved three times before I got around to painting it! LOL!
      The border? Just a simple inner stroke in PS, shadow on a separate layer with a little tug at the edges. If I ever get around to it, I’ll make an action out of it and give it away.
      Busy, schmizzy … post whatever you take woman :p
