Last year I was in Miami with The Charmer. 9 days of utter bliss. When we parted at the end we were both sad but also excited for the future. We had so many plans for this year and of course neither of us knew what was about to happen and bring all that to a grinding halt.
The fact we have not seen each other in person for a whole year is devastating to both of us however we have battled through this together. We have had so many amazing times even though we have been apart, we have also had moments of tension and anger as well as amazing love and passion. We have done it all and right now we feel like we are in a stronger place in our relationship than ever before. If we can get through this shit we can get through anything.
I had been reluctant to write about this anniversary on my blog for fear that it would just make us both sad. Celebrating your sex-iversary is definitely something you are meant to do in person and not being able to do that and the fact it reminds us of how much time we have lost this year it seemed like something to just slip past this year but then as this week as has progressed we found ourselves talking about it more and enjoying reminiscing and that led me to suggesting we use one of the pictures I took while I was there for this weeks Sinful Sunday.
The prompt, in case you don’t know, is to let someone else edit your picture. We picked an image together and I sent him an unedited version. He did mutter that he wasn’t that confident in his editing skills but I said it didn’t matter, the point was, it was something we could do together and most importantly it honoured our anniversary.
His image is the one above and about it he said…
“Edits are a strange thing for me. Given Molly’s skills daunting might be a better word. For this I chose to crop the left side slightly. The right side night stand was distracting to the eye(and a bit unorganized). The pictures were left in frame above the head board as it seemed to draw her body closer to the camera. The color choice was one I wrestled with but much like my soul I chose darker rather than lighter.”
And of the image itself, he named it waiting and wrote…
“She has been left alone, to her own devices. She cast her spell on me years before and now I am just waiting for the world to slow down and to find her back in our bed, waiting for me.”
My edit is below. As you can see I chose to remove the pictures on the wall and also keep the colour. The blue shirt is his, I wore it that day because he smelt of him. I also tidied up the nightstand but I used photoshop to do it and so left the lamp and I also left in the little glimpse of the mirror because I like how it hinted to more of the room just out of sight.
I am going to be bold and say that I think my edit is technically better. The blue shirt has real texture and depth to it as does my hair and yes I think there is something hot about my slightly dusty dirty feet. However I think there is a mysteriousness to the image in The Charmer’s edit and maybe it fits the bittersweet mood we have found ourselves in this week better.
The blue shirt is currently with him, but one day I will wear it again. One day…
