Curvaceous Derp

Posted on | March 2, 2014 | 25 Comments |

I post a lot of photos of myself. I regularly receive comments from readers complimenting both the photographer’s talent and how I look, which is always appreciated and great for the self-esteem. Still, with the occasional comment suggesting that I always look ‘amazing’ I must disagree – boy howdy, is that not the case! As it is with anyone who takes and posts pictures, there are a lot of shots that never make it onto the blog.

You know the ones. The extra-blurry photos, the half-out-of-frame shots, and the ones where I’m making some terrible expression (or laughing my arse off when I’m trying to be serious).

I’ve been keeping a ‘derp’ folder of the extra impressive examples for a while now. And it’s time, with this week’s theme, to share a few.

Scavenger hunting is rife with disastrous pics, because I’m moving swiftly and (as in this example) Hylas is trying to get off as many shots as fast as possible. When we were at the post office,  I was looking toward the direction I could hear another customer sorting his mail, and hoping desperately he didn’t come nearer. And lifting my top very quickly indeed (I have no idea why my tongue is sticking out…). We got two great photos out of it, and many more terrible ones. Which isn’t unusual, really.

Then there’s this lovely example (captured by Adonis). There I am, having a grand old time wearing fluffy furry kitty ears and cuffs and tails, and I go and pull a face like that! When you look at four photos in the main post, you’d have no idea – and neither did I, until I was looking through them later :)

Sometimes rather than eyes half-closed, it’s eyes wide open. Hylas and I were in the old military tunnels under North Head, and it was very dark in there! There are six pictures in the main post and I manage to avoid this for those ones – but then, for most of them I’m not looking directly at the flash of the camera…

I have brilliantly terrible faces when I’m wanking. This is just one of many, many examples from this shoot – Hylas has gotten ever more skilled with his photography, and a good afternoon will now leave me with hundreds of pics to sort through and choose from. Handily, I can usually dismiss the ones where I look like a muppet. Those ’10 photos in 2 seconds’ options means there are lots of me making incredibly inelegant faces… why not go and enjoy the 10 good images I chose instead?

But this. This takes the cake. It is my favourite of the terrible – because it shows me doing something I love so very much, and I look so utterly horrific as I do so! Eyes rolled back, whites showing … am I possessed? Perhaps! Once again Hylas catches me at just the wrong moment. (Still, he caught me at many right moments as well – go and look at six hot photos in this post.)


I have plenty more in my ‘derp’ folder. Perhaps I should make it an occasional series?

    OMG, yes! I have so many shots like these, but I wasn’t brave enough to post them!

    I have some terrible photos too: you can’t be David Bailey all the time!

    I took around 300 photos last week to get four #febphotofest pictures.

    Yep the last one is certainly one that would remain hidden, if not deleted all together. Sometimes when I see pictures (oh the too many) of myself like this, I think I must look terrible actually doing sexy stuff, but thank goodness other pictures (sadly not as many) show a sexier side

    Brilliant! lol. I know what you mean about the two good shots in a group of 100. Sometimes I look at some of my expressions and wonder why he is still with me! lol xx

    I lost it by the time I got to the blow job picture. You always have great pictures. It’s so great to know someone else has the same problem as me!

    Evoe – I haven’t been brave enough before now either. You are not alone!

    John – I had to go and look up who David Bailey is. So thank you for that; I just learned something :)

    Cammies – Oh, I wanted to delete it, for sure! Hylas persuaded me to hold onto it and start the folder… and now look what’s come of it!

    GrittyWoman – Well, we have very malleable faces. Darn those swift camera shutters for capturing their plasticity…

    TheSinDoll – Hopefully by ‘lost it’ you mean ‘in gales of laughter’. Glad you enjoyed!

    Oh, Dee. These are brilliant. I do so love that last one, though. It would be my first choice for the poster if ever there is a film released titled ‘Exorcist: The Oral Possession’. :-) Thank you for posting these. You’re very brave – far braver than me! Huge hugs. Jane xxxxxxx

    Oh my gosh we have so many shots like these in our private archives. Soooo many!

    Those ‘extras’ made me giggle, Deelicious, thank goodness you brought them into the sunshine :)

    Hahaha this made me smile and nod, because yes, I have photos like these too. But unfortunately I cannot show them here on the blog, because I don’t show my face. Your last one is brilliant!

    Ohhhh, that last one really set the giggles going!!! I get plenty of shots like that and it does no good to blame the photographer! 😀

    Those are a delightful set of derps. They made us giggle too. We have collected quite a few as well, and it was fun to have a theme this week to showcase them. Love ’em!

    These are sooo funny but I agree with you the last truly is the best. Oh and you are not alone I have a fair few of me doing exactly the same thing and I appear to have been possessed by some sort of daemon!

    The absolute proof that the pics are taken in the moment and not posed. Brilliant. I would and always do delete them but I have had giggles looking through them first.

    That last one is sooooo familiar!! They are all fabulous pics!

    I love the octopus photo I cracked up when I seen it. What awesome pics!

    OMG…girl, you made me laugh so hard. I have SO many of these!! I love the “derp.” You’re adorable…”derpy” or not.

    Lol that last one inspires me to pull a certain one out for next week!! I was thinking shots if us laughing but shots that trigger laughter are even better!!

    The last one is awesome. I make the same face. I know I have a pic just like it. Funny how BJ’s result in funny faces.

    We come from the school of photographic thinking that if we shoot enough pictures, some will look brilliant.

    Sometimes there will be moments that just look odd, but I still enjoy them anyway. Serafina accuses me of wanting to post every photo I take of her – lol.

    I actually enjoy the face in the furry cat picture – to me it is very cat like – some cats look at humans with that “what you gonna do for me?” expression, you capture it perfectly!

    Jane – If there were ever a film like that I’d want to be in it! I make the best (worst?) noises sometimes …

    Bunny – I’m not alone! I don’t suppose you’d care to share?

    Clive – A giggling Clive is always a good thing, in my book :)

    SilverDomUK – Yay!

    Rebel – It’s enough to know you have them. Hmm. Can you have derp body expressions? I wonder …

    Kazi – No, it really doesn’t! Well, you can try. But it really doesn’t work!

    Logan – Derps for the win :)

    Molly – I think really we’re just possessed by the need to fill our mouths as much as possible. (I don’t think that’s just me, is it?)

    HappyComeLucky – I used to delete them, too. But sometimes it’s a hoot to look back and see just how hilariously wrong an attempt at a pose can go!

    Mia – *raises eyebrows* I knew it wasn’t just me!

    Heaven – Octopus = extra derp moments. I had SO many from that shoot :)

    Jade – *beams* Aww – thank you so much hon!

    Sangsara – Shots that trigger laughter are definitely worth it, I agree :)

    Beck – BJ’s definitely do. It’s a known side effect. *nods knowingly*

    Michael – It seems that cat pic was a winner, and I never knew it! Yes, I agree with you know – you take enough, and something will come out right!

    xx to all,

    jkoop – Thanks for the comment! You’ve reminded me I was going to make this an occasional thing :)

    Looks like you could do with another reminder. Perhaps another derp post to finish off Scavenger Hunt Month?
