Daan's New Year Resolutions 2011

Sensitif #53

New year, new month, which means the newest issue of Sensitif Magazine is online to download for free. This issue contains a shoot called Two of my favourites models by Scott Hoover.

The Day After

The day after. Being lazy, Peter in his snuggy (backwards and looking like a monk) and me in my pj's. The day after a wonderful night in Amsterdam with good friends, way too much food and the right amount of alcohol! Ready for another year of blogging! Happy New Year!

Personal Top 25 of 2010

So I published the most viewed posts of 2010. COS commented and asked me about my personal Top 10. That's hard with almost 1600 posts in 2010, so I made it a personal Top 25:

Because it's my blog. That's why. And because it's a beautiful shot of a beautiful woman in a beautiful year photographed by a photographer specialized in beauty and besides that it's a beautiful tribute to that other beautiful lady. Madonna photographed by Steven Meisel back in 1991 for Vanity Fair as a tribute to Marilyn Monroe.

Carlos Villar by David Wagner

That other awesome blog Men Without Clothes posted these very sexy shots of Mexican model Carlos Villar photographed by David Wagner. Still the boxing theme, which we saw a lot in both 2009 and 2010, but maybe 2011 will bring us a new sportstheme!

2010 - The Big Picture Edition

The Big Picture over at delivered some of the most beautiful captures of news in 2010. At the end of this year they compiled a selection of 120 of their best shots which you can find here. My post contains a selection of 10 out of those 120 pictures.
