Thursday Challenge: Hot -

"Hot"

"Norma was hot. This created plenty of tension at the backyard barbecue when DonnaSue arrived. Bedecked in a doubled strand of white pearls and a checkered cocktail outfit, she was even hotter." - a flicktion by Mick Mather

This is hot. Also the colours are hot. That woman (Norma) has nice expression. Perhaps she's very talkative? ;)

Oh dear, this doesn't promise a succesful evening for the ladies. Better to be cool than hot, that's my opinion.

Very 50's your pic somehow, maybe the hairdo does it? The atmospeher seems thick with heat already.
A magical capture of a moment. Good.

I love these retro gals! They are the grown up ladies I remember from my childhood. I love the contrast between the appearance and the behavior... very realistic!

She certainly appears to be talkative. :D

susupetal:
As you say, the atmosphere is just that. Too, there are those subtle background elements - the fiery glow from the grill and billows of smoke that hint at a certain chaos fueled by the heat and humidity! :D

carla:
Retro indeed. My favorite part is DonnaSue's scarf, worn like a headband - very chic in the day.

this is a cool shot of (forgive me)
I think real American women.
In so many American movies I saw these typical(tiptop)beauties.
Hope I am not insulting anyone.
Hope they had nice conversations!

btw have a nice weekend

No need to forgive, the comment is not offensive to me in any way. In fact, I like the way that you see this piece. I enjoy a tiptop beauty from time to time whether she's American or not. You enjoy the weekend too, Trijnie ... here, in step with this theme, temps are going to be hot, hot, hot! In the 90's all weekend!
