Just a Tease

Because I may not have much time to blog over this week, here’s a tease for the next installment of The Magic of Women

GIRLS & GUNS

Girls with Pearls

Posted in erotic, fetish, pinup, sexual, Sexy, women with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 22, 2009 by cliffmichaels

What says elegance better than pearls? But pearls, or at least the women who wear them, can certainly be sexy, too. The beauties in The Magic of Women: Girls with Pearls shine like the lustrous pearls around their pretty necks.

Some pearls that up the wattage: 50w, 75w, 100w, 150w, 200w.

Oddly, there are utterly no appropriate groups on Flickr for “girls with pearls”.

Gloves…?

Let’s see, in my Magic of Women series I’ve done hats, boots, red dresses, black dresses, stockings. Hmmm… Must be time for…

GLOVES!!

And don’t miss the next installment:

The Magic of Women: Dental Implants

Looks like all the really good gloves groups on Flickr are private. But this one might suffice.

Not Your Grandfather’s Flickr

Posted in FLICKR with tags on November 22, 2009 by cliffmichaels

I admit it, I’m old fashioned. I joined Flickr in July of 2005 (pre Yahoo). I don’t really notice the changes the company has made since those early days. Now and again I’ll think: there’s something new on the screen. I did geotag for a while but it came to seem pointless. Why does anyone really care where in east Tennessee my photos were taken (and besides, a lot of the time I don’t even know…). What I would want is a way to customize my home page and photo pages. Why not an option to change colors and fonts? Different sizes for photos on their pages would be nice, too.Anyway, here are a couple of Flickr apps you might want to try:

Photophlow. If I understand it correctly, Photophlow combines Flickr and chat rooms. Stephen Shankland, of CNET News, described using the software this way:

“For me, the site felt like wandering through a museum with a group of new acquaintances, commenting on pictures as we went from room to room. And some of the rooms featured our own pictures.”

A check of Flickr shows over three hundred fifty photophlow groups.

I’m sorry, but I just don’t care. I’m just not all that “social” on Flickr. I read, and sometimes comment on, a few groups, answer or write a few emails and that’s about it (except, of course, for commenting on a lot of photos).

DestroyFlickr. I’m probably one of the last people to hear about this app. It replaces the Flickr interface with a much more flexible space. Hmm. Sounds a bit like what was wanting. Except, the new look is only on my computer and not anyone else’s. Here’s how Josh Lowwnsohn of CNET described it:

“The small downloadable AIR (Adobe Integrated Runtime) application, which is a semifinalist in this year’s Adobe Design Achievement Awards, lets you plug into your Flickr account and view photos on a virtual canvas. Once it’s pulled in thumbnails, it doesn’t need to do it again (unlike Flickr’s own site). This means if you’re going through a bevy of photos (like in a contact’s photo stream) you’ll only have to grab that data once. Also, each task offered by the app is kept in a separate compartment, called a “workspace.” Once that’s been loaded it exists like an open browser tab, letting you zip back and forth between various tasks or albums”.

If I work up the energy to install DestroyFlickr I’ll think about telling you what I think about  (if I think anything).

RED & BLACK

Posted in erotic, fetish, FLICKR, pinup, Sexy with tags , , , , , , , on November 21, 2009 by cliffmichaels

Bright and saturated reds are the theme of the new gallery The Magic of Women: the Lady in Red. The red dresses in these photos delight the eye, and the models aren’t bad either.

Nothing is sexier on a woman than “the little black dress”. The  gallery The Magic of Women: the Little black Dress makes the point with a dozen and a half stylish, sexy photos of stylish, sexy women.

As always, here are some shots too sexy for the galleries: red, black, red, black.

Groups:

Lady n Red

Little Black Dress

I Love Red Clothes

Hot UK Sluts in Little Black Dresses

Artists of the Week

Posted in FLICKR, photographers, PHOTOGRAPHY with tags , , , on November 21, 2009 by cliffmichaels

Here are a few photographers I’ve run across on Flickr whose work I admire:

PINO BEATO. As you might guess, he’s Italian (from Naples). He has an adoring eye for women. His skill turns virtually every shot into a compelling photograph. Here’s a great set, and another.

EDWINDEJONGH. This marvelous site presents some of his excellent work. His images are razor sharp, well composed and his skill with color is superb. Oh, if you like kittens you’ll love his cat photos.

PHLIPP D. His profile provides no information (except he joined Flickr in February) His photos are well composed, particularly his nature and landscape photographs.

PUBLIK_OBERBERG.  Here’s his website (in German). His work is seriously good. What he does with an ordinary stand of trees is remarkable. His haunting, austere photos taken in fog are a joy to view.

PETER BOWERS. I’ve written about his incredible work at least once before. In my opinion he is one of the very best photographers on Flickr. He’s Canadian (Toronto), and specializes in nature and landscape photography. In his hands a wide angle lens becomes a thing of magic. His set “the canoe” will take your breath away. He weaves minimalist magic with reeds and still water. The landscapes in his set  “snow and ice” are original, starkly beautiful and so well composed they seem artless.
