There are many reasons one lights a candle. Indeed, whether it be to set a soft and warm mood or to relax in a nice bath or even to pray for some, we all associate this almost ritualistic act with fond, comforting moments. Lighting a candle in broad daylight however and then kneeling naked in front of it speaks of something a little kinkier, naughtier. And this blonde looks like she wants to play.
Today’s Media Of The Day by Ziege58 is all about contradictions and contrast. Firstly, from a purely compositional point of view, the candlelight and daylight combine to create some lovely contrasts. Indeed, this alone – the dark vs. light factor, innocence vs. mischief, is already a strong driving theme for any work of art. In this case, however, it becomes an underlying and driving factor to our curiosity.
Why would a sweet little thing like our lovely blonde here light a candle, strip off and then kneel on a glass coffee table? Is she waiting for someone? Her devious gaze certainly makes it seem as though she’s scared of being caught. Furthermore, the model has chosen a unique posture – one of submission and expectation. Without a doubt, this is a girl who, in her everyday life, must seem tame and docile. So what we’re witnessing is her letting loose. The title also suggests this isn’t just a one-time occurrence. She does this to relax, to escape the real world.
Ziege58 has captured a beautiful moment – right before the fun begins. Who knows, maybe the candle will be more than just a prop? Maybe the person this petite blonde expects will pour its contents over her perfect skin to add a little edge to their lovemaking?
