February 29th: Fill the frame…

‘That’s rule number one for a photographer, isn’t it? Fill your frame?’
David Cronenberg, Consumed

And that’s it for Feb Photo Fest 2020! What a brilliant month!!

I always love this blogging photography meme and there have been some ridiculously strong photos this year. Do click the button below and explore – there are some fabulous images to find!

My final photo also fulfils the Sinful Sunday prompt of ‘Fill the Frame’ – making the most of the Saturday sunlight streaming through the window.

February 27th: Progress…

‘Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.’
Frank Zappa

This is a different type of Throwback Thursday! It should have been a re-edit of 2018’s most popular post but, for reasons I can’t explain, that was the one with our cat taken for the humour prompt and I couldn’t think of a way to better it!

So instead, here’s a redo of a 2018 image to show the progress I’ve made as my body has recovered from pregnancy. I’ve actually been pretty terrible at putting on all of the creams that are supposed to help with scars and stretch marks, occasionally rubbing breast milk on them in the early days as I heard an old wives tale about how it can be beneficial.

But without my really doing anything, my stretch marks just faded away. They’re not completely gone but they’re certainly nothing like they used to be! I am getting closer to at least looking like who I used to be…

February 26th: Buffy the Vampire Slayer…

Does the word “duh” mean anything to you?

– Buffy

It’s my final movie poster recreation for this FebPhotoFest! This 1992 movie is not nearly as good as the later TV series but it does still have a great poster…

It was pretty fun pretending to be a bad-ass slayer for a short while too!

February 23rd: Nine 1/2 Weeks…

‘How does it feel like to be out of control?’
John, Nine 1/2 Weeks

This is my last movie poster recreation this FebPhotoFest that ties in with a movie review – you can read what I think of Nine 1/2 Weeks, Mickey Rourke and kink in movies on my movie blog.

I love the movie but it also has a great poster – his dominant hands, her lips – so I had to attempt to recreate it.

Our version of Nine 1/2 Weeks poster

Our version has ended up a bit more romantic than dominant, but I’m still really pleased with it!

February 19th: Mascara…

‘When one is young, one should use a lot of mascara. When one is older, one should use much more.’
The Prince and the Showgirl

Today’s post is a recreation of a movie poster that seems to exist only in hottest poster lists! Made in 1987 and starring Charlotte Rampling, I can find almost no trace of the movie anywhere…

But it does have a pretty incredible poster!

February 13th: Psychedelic…

‘I’m struck by the fact there was nothing supernatural about my heightened perceptions that afternoon, nothing that I needed an idea of magic or a divinity to explain. No, all it took was another perceptual slant on the same old reality,’
Michael Pollan, How to Change Your Mind

For this week’s Throwback Thursday post, I’m updating the second most popular post from 2016 – Passenger! I’ve re-used Hunger, the most popular, too many times and I actually prefer this one so I’m really happy to have got to play with the image again and remember that fantastic day…

The original image remains one of my favourites but I am really pleased with the confused and psychedelic haze of the re-edit!
