Flickr a Day 232: ‘An Auspicious New Year — Sex on the Beach with Sweet Bitch’

Leave a comment

Clever is how I describe today’s selection. The shot appeals, but surely self-titled “An Auspicious New Year—Sex on the Beach with Sweet Bitch” teaches something. Perhaps it’s the stated topic, or use of “sex” and “bitch”, that racked up more than 158,000 views since Timothy Janecyk shot the black and white on Jan. 1, 2013, using Nikon D700 and 35mm f/1.4 lens. Vitals: f/10, ISO 200, 1/400 sec, 35.6mm.

“When I woke up, I thought it was all a dream or something”, he teases. “What an amazing start to the New Year! Sex on the beach with Sweet Bitch. I couldn’t ask for anything more than that. I am the luckiest guy in the world. I hope your New Year is off to as good a start as mine! Happy New Year!” But Timothy’s escapade wasn’t a woman. Sex on the Beach is a cocktail recipe and Sweet Bitch Moscato Rose is a wine. Not being a drinker, other than a wee bit during my 18th year (legal age in 1977), I wouldn’t know. 

Many bloggers and journalists are search-engine obsessed when writing headlines in ways that they hope will capture search traffic. I dunno if that’s the case here. But as a writer who likes to tweak readers, I love Timothy’s style.

The Chicago, Ill. resident is a sailboat enthusiast, who joined Flickr in June 2008. I like his attitude: “Please steal my photos. I think it’s really the greatest compliment of all. I encourage you to steal any of my photography for personal or commercial use”.
