A Leg Up

by Molly Moore
A leg up against the wall looking strange

I have had this image for a little while now but not shared it because, well, quite frankly I think it is a little strange and I didn’t really know what to say about it. However the more I look at it the odder I find it and the more that happens the more I really like it. I think it is an image that makes you question what you are seeing and for that matter, not seeing, and for me that is exactly why I like it.

Awesome shot ! and its great to let the viewer go on a journey thru this picture by themselves without narratives….if they are curious enough and will wonder in the right direction 😉

Yes I completely agree. It is something I am not good at. For some reason I always feel like I need to write something about it

I like it!!! The smoothness of your leg, against the hard angles on your shoe and then the flexiblity, but unironed texture of the material. A fantastic image!!

Also makes you wonder where the expression came from: To get or have a leg up on someone.

I really love this. There is a boldness, a defiance to that beautiful leg thrust straight straight up.

Firstly I can’t get over of what a fantastic shoe Molly!!
Secondly the image is so simple but it can open the door to your imagination of what is going on down there?! The story telling is endless, and I think that’s the real beauty of this image, just like you said Molly.

Strange it is, or at the least unusual. A mirror, I’m not sure. I like the shadow going up the crease with your leg… and the shoe is very cool. I thought of standing on my head, but I think I’ll get it on my laptop and turn that sideways and upside down.

Haha, it is taken this way up… and yes a mirror… and I know it is strange but I like it because for that very fact

I love this, it’s so interesting! Those are stunning shoes and your leg looks fabulous. I really like the curves and angles of your legs in comparison to the straight edges of the mirror. Xxx

Thank you…. I do find that legs up in the air tends to be flattering to the legs!

Hi Molly! I think it reminds me of the leg lamp in “Christmas Story”…the one with “you’ll shoot your eye out”….? Unlike your other guests that commented on your artistry, if I were to give my impression a Freudian edge, I would have to say that I am very immature! Love the pic! DWD

Those shoes are fucking fierce. I love photos (and writing) that leave something to the imagination, and I’m imagining a lot about what’s happening on the ground in this photo! x

Yep, and I do love a good pair of fierce shoes

My first thought was, “Oh hell yeah!” Well done you. I don’t find it at all strange.

It is a little strange, yes. It’s also thought provoking. I like it.

The first thing I saw was the shoes and I went “WOW”.

Then I read the words and studied the image. I see what you mean, but in the end I decided that this is the kind of image you can easily hang in your living room. It’s sexy and suggestive and just beautiful.

I love the shoes and love the image too. I know what you mean about needing words. I always have to find something to say but that may not be a surprise to you ;-p

This is a fabulous shot, and like many others have said, those shoes rock! I found myself trying to imagine what the rest of you looked like, out of the shot and giggled because it made me think of my Xmas present photo… with my legs sticking out of the box it is all sexy legs and sparkly shoes but there’s a partner image looking down on me contorted in the box and I’m wearing giant pants, an old vest and a hangover face!

I think this is unique and utterly fascinating

Molly, I really love this! The composition is gorgeous and almost abstract. The frame of the mirror against the fabric is a perfect backdrop for your leg. It reminds me of a framed flower picture. But your leg is the flower. (Also, killer shoes)
