  1. Like Cheryl's photo, which I saw earlier this morning, this one works for its subtlety, for what it doesn't show. Very sensuous.

    But I thought you were going to show us the rest of the mirror shot earlier. ;)

  2. She's simply glowing. I'd like to read her mind. It was very nice of her to pose for you.

  3. Yeah, she was very nice to go along with my crazy ideas. I actually had several really great shots where you couldn't see her face, but I liked this one because you kind of want to know what she's thinking. Of course it's most likely "are you done soon???"

  4. Hah, how can you be certain I was nude when taking that photo? Were you hiding in the closet, perhaps? ;)

  5. She is totally-super-gorgeous! And very BRAVE to pose for this photo!

    ReplyDelete
  6. I know, she is incredibly brave AND gorgeous. You know, I was going to do the posing and have her take the photos, but the rules state that I have to be the one taking the photos, so she was nice enough to pose for me instead. ;)

  7. That is a beautiful shot of a gorgeous young lady. I love her expression, and would liked for someone to have taken your photo while you shot this one. I bet your expression says a lot as well. IF she doesn't have several boyfriends, she will now.

  8. Another great photo and very tastefully done.  You have a beautiful sister, Ziva, and she must have a great sense of humour, too!  (You can see it in her face).

    ;-)

  9. She's amazing! And lucky for you for those RULES!

    ReplyDelete
  10. She is stunning and one helluva good sport. Lovely photo, Ziva.

    (Is that Curious George taking a peek over in the corner?)

  11. So, so pretty.

    I spend a lot of time and energy to have skin like that and don't even get close.

    Y'all must be really close to get such a gorgeous shot. 

    ReplyDelete
  12. I know, I couldn't believe my luck. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  13.  Thanks, LM, it was a great one to shoot, we had a lot of fun that day. :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. She must have a great sense of humour to put up with me and my crazy! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hah, that thing in the corner is one of her many, many penguins. If you look closely you'll notice that her earrings are penguins, too. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yeah, I don't know how she does it, she doesn't even have to work for it..

    We really are close, it's a shame she's moved to a city a couple hours from me, so we don't see each other as often anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Simply gorgeous!  That skin!  That hair!  The part that amazes me is having two goddesses in one family.  Such a beautiful and intimate and  loving photo.  You obviously adore her and the photo shows more about you than about your lovely sis.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Phew! My faith in Curious George has been restored. Penguins are naturally curious so I'm not worried for your sister.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh Linda, she is the goddess in this family, for sure. I pale next to her beauty. But I am very glad that the photo shows how close we are. :)

    ReplyDelete
  20.  I respectfully disagree.  You are both radiantly beautiful.

    Damn rules.

  22. What can I say, Mike, some of us actually follow the rules. ;)

    This is a lovely, sensual photo, Ziva. The lighting and skin tones are flawless, and while your sister is obviously posing, she doesn't look fake, which is hard to achieve. I also like that it's black and white, and that your sister's earrings seem to match the bedsheets. I don't know whether that was deliberate, but it's a small detail that makes the photo even more special.
     
    The photo wouldn't be out of place at all in a high-fashion magazine like Vogue or Cosmopolitan. In fact, my mind automatically places the Chanel No. 5 logo in the upper right-hand corner.
     
    It's that good, in my opinion.

    Bryan's been hiding in the closet for years. We've all been waiting for him to come out.

  25. At the risk of stating the obvious, this is a great photo with excellent composition, and a beautiful subject.

    Now about the penguins: As a Linux user, I approve.

    God, I'm such a geek. I cannot believe I brought up Linux at a time like this. But I did, and I'm not taking it back.

  26. Mike.  Perfect comment.  Sums it up in beautifully.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wow! This should teach me to comment early. When a photo is this good, everybody has talked about all the good aspects of the photo. So I guess I just repeat the obvious. Your sister is gorgeous and I love the informality of the photo. She could have been sharing a special moment with her lover or best girlfriend or even her sister who obviously adores her! Her skin is amazing. That is one of the things I have disliked about aging...I miss the sensuous skin. I know your sister will love this photo and I hope it becomes an heirloom for future generations to speculate the circumstances of this beautiful woman.

  28. Sizzle.  Sizzle.  That is just lovely. 

    Does she have a sister? 

    Oh, wait.  I'm married.  Silly me.

    :)

  29. Sublime and I love the nonchalant attitude that is oozed, nonchalantly of course, in its black and white sophisticatically defined world. It is really perfect. But is that a monkey in the background, and what is his name?

    Regardless of the monkey that might not be, this is a stunning photo. 

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thank you, Linda, for saying that. :) And you know, it takes one to know one. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thank you, Michael. I don't really know what else to say, except I agree with Middlechild, this is the perfect comment. I'm sure my sister is going to be extremely happy to know you think she's classy enough to promote Chanel No. 5. ;)

    I'm really, really glad you liked it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Haha, I love Tux, and I love that you can look at a photo of a nude girl and think about Linux. Did you know Linus Torvalds is Finnish? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Very pretty and very confident!  The monkey in the background is kinda creepy. 

    ReplyDelete
  34. You know, I didn't think about that. I might have to have it printed and framed for her. :) Thank you, Malisa, I'm really glad you liked the photo, even though you weren't the first to like it. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hah, yes! She does happen to have a sister... However, said sister is getting married, too..

    ReplyDelete
  36. Well, as long as it's not "are you done already?"

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love the nonchalant attitude that is oozed, nonchalantly of course, in your comment's grey and white sophistically defined world. Or something. Are you by any chance drunk?

    The monkey is a penguin and the penguin does have a name that escapes me right now. Might be Marvin. Or Melvin. Or Ezekiel. But whatshisface was a very good penguin on the day of the photo shoot, and I am very happy that you are pleased with the result.

    ReplyDelete
  38. The creepy monkey is a very innocent penguin. Glad you liked the photo, though. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  39. I sure hope "are you done already?" is not something you hear a lot, dufus.

    ReplyDelete
  40. First of all, gorgeous photo and she is indeed BEAUTIFUL.  Secondly, the tag "I'll get so many hits..." is AWESOME!  How gorgeous!

    Hey, maybe you could take nude pictures of all of us so that future generations of our family will be able to remember us for the gorgeous women we once were. That'd be a cool bonding experience.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Um, ah, me? No, never, Ziva. Just at supper time.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hah, thanks for noticing that one. ;) Glad you liked it!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Ok, so I'm not allowed to make rude or inappropriate comments, but I am allowed to think rude or inappropriate thoughts, right? ;-)

    She's beautiful, Lemmikki. A Lemmikkisi, one might say. And one day she will grow up to be as heartbreakingly stunning as her big sister.  

    ReplyDelete
  45. I KNEW you were really a woman.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Awww.. When you say such nice things to me, you're allowed to think however rude or inappropriate thoughts you want.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Really? My monkey phobia has gone too far this time. Glad to hear it's a penguin.

  48. She kind of reminds me of actress Keri Russell.  She's really beautiful.  

    ReplyDelete
  49. I DID know that, and then I forgot for some reason. The penguins make so much more sense now.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hah, whenever I think of Keri Russell, I think of her big Felicity-hair, but now that you mention it, maybe there is a slight resemblance..

    ReplyDelete
