    The lamp is great, and so is this photo!

    Sorry, the lamp is an unsightly distraction in an otherwise appealing photo. It adds nothing, means nothing, just detracts from a pretty model and good lighting.

    Without the lamp her boobs would probably be the lead story of this photo. But because the lamp is there, although it does not fully cover them, the nudity becomes secondary.
    I like that.

    I agree. The cord is wrapped around her ankle and makes me wonder. Sure, pictures of nice looking things are fine, but making us think and imagine is good, too.

    A vacuum cleaner her hands would make me think more than that lamp. It is blocky, dark and leads me nowhere.

    Re: Nude

    I have said the wrong thing before in nude section...

    It is a wonderful image!

    The lamp may be a metaphor, "The phrase can’t hold a candle to has its roots in the 1600s, when the lowly apprentice to a master of a craft might only be fit to hold a candle in order to provide light for the master while he tends to a problem. An apprentice who was not even skillful enough to hold a candle for his master was worthless, indeed. The earliest known citation for this term is from 1641 in The fower cardinal-vertues of a Carmelite fryar by Sir Edward Dering: “Though I be not worthy to hold the candle to Aristotle.”" Source here.

    There are several that apply

    The dangling cord also implies...

    The person illuminated is extraordinarily beautiful, perhaps distraction is

    Maybe she's just looking for an honest man. (Doubt she will find one, though, dressed like that.)
