An English Rose

by Molly Moore
Naked in rose garden

I took these myself in the garden this week. The weather was beautiful and I was outside trying to take pictures for the Kink of the Week when I suddenly I had the brilliant idea of climbing in amongst the rose-bush. I set up the camera on the tripod, got the shot in frame and in focus and then wriggled up into the bush. Doesn’t sound too bad right? What you can’t see is that this rose has vicious big sharp thorns that my skin to piece each year when I prune it and the blooms, they are absolutely adored by the bees. I knew the bees would be cool as long as I didn’t do anything erratic and so avoiding the thorns was fairly important. The whole bush literally buzzed around me while I shot these but it was so worth it as I think they came out brilliantly.

They are all slightly different and I added a couple of editing techniques to some but I couldn’t pick a favourite so I am posting them all and letting you decide which one you like the best

Image 1: Straight out of the camera, no editing at all.

Those are gorgeous pictures!! I love your English roses!

Those are really pretty! I like how the bushes go just low enough to cover you but high enough to show off your legs. I think I like the colour filter and aged photo best 🙂

These are simply beautiful! Every one of them!

Lovely pictures! I love the one colour filter. The flowers really pop!

Penny July 21, 2013 - 7:39 am

Wow, these are gorgeous Molly! If you were nervous from the bees/thorns, it definitely doesn’t show in the photos; you look completely natural and at ease!

What a pretty picture!

Colour filter gives it that Victorian look, soft and romantic

Your post this week is beautiful. I love the first picture! You look like a ballerina and the roses make a perfect skirt around you 😉 love it!!!

What wonderful images, all lovely in their own way.
You ask us to choose a favourite! Well you know me and decisions. However this time quick and decisive 🙂 I choose number 4, Not for the editing but for your pose, which suggests to me that you want the viewer to follow you through to the secret garden beyond .

Wow! They’re all amazing shots (because you’re in them!) but for the look I really like the second photo.

You out-do the roses Molly 🙂 Beautiful images x

For me it is the “aged photo” edit – I love the softness it creates. They are all beautiful though.

So pretty and well thought out, the roses create a lovely frame around you.

I feel like I’m gazing at fairyland. So playful, and beautiful. How brave of you to submerged amongst bees and thorns to give us this delight.

TheSinDoll July 22, 2013 - 12:04 am

WOW. just WOW. I can’t even fathom flowers like that. Everything green that I touch, dies. Beautiful picture. At first glance it was like a tutu of flowers. Stunning!

My favorite is the third photo, although all of them are excellent shots. But to me you appear like a rose bud nymph, a nude fairy admiring the roses, totally unaware of eyes laid upon you. By the way, those are beautiful roses. xxx

Bravo for the brave photo-shoot. But Molly would never let Bees or Thorns get in the way of a little sinfulness!! I love number 2 xxx

KaziG July 22, 2013 - 10:33 am

They’re all gorgeous! I’d be happy to have any of them in my garden with such a lovely rose nymph in the centre 🙂

Molly, these are AWESOME. I adore roses and you look so lovely amidst those blooms … The way that strand is draped across your butt? Gorgeous. You look like a flower fairy. Jane xxx

So colourful; awesome pictures and you look wonderful 😉

I am reading an erotic book and a naked young lady in a thorn bush could come straight from those pages 😉

Always love ‘Random Kisses’, Molly, especially when they lead to images I have never seen. I think these are arousing photos and I am responding accordingly. I may have to go get my ‘OffBeat’.
