Fashion Art

There's something wonderfully symbolic about a fresh pair of hosiery.  To celebrate the New Year, I purchased an attractive pair of seamed stockings.  I played with them to see what visual images I could produce.  Here are some results.

I'm attracted to art made with female bodies and feminine clothes.  The lines of a silhouette, the curves of surfaces, the textures and colors.  They all evoke aesthetic and personal responses in me.

Being a model as well as a photographer is hard work.  When shooting, I'm not able to see through the viewfinder so I have to take a lot of bad pictures in order to get a few good ones.  Plus, this time my calves are howling like wolves from flexing them so much.  The things we do for our blogs!

  1. Interesting post Ally, I'm in agreement with you when it comes to your comments regarding female art. I know what you mean with regards to being both a model and photographer, it's very hard work just to get those few special shots.

  5. Lovely photos! I hear ya on how difficult it is to get a good shot since I take my own photos with the camera timer. I watched one of those model reality shows once and was impressed at how hard it is to make one's body, expression, etc. all work together to convey a desired effect. These are great photos - you really captured both strength and femininity!

  7. Oh, what I'd do for a fraction of the definition you have in your calves! :)

    Awesome seamed stocking look, dear Ally. Naturally it gets two massive vintage loving thumbs up from me.
