I Want To Know


A picture is worth a thousand words, or is it? I want to know if you think this one is.

I saw this picture and was immediately intrigued. I have my theories about why I find it so interesting, but I’m gonna do something a little different with this post. I will post my thoughts on this picture tomorrow, but today I want to know what you think. Do you find this picture interesting? What about its aesthetic do you like? Basically, what I asking my readers is: How do you feel when you see this picture?

I really am interested in what you’d guys think, so please comment. Just tell me what pops in your mind when you see it. I will have have my thoughts about this picture written up before I read comments but I wanted to see what you thought without any input from me. Even if the photograph does nothing for you, you are welcome to tell me that too.

By the way, I have no idea who took the photo nor do I know who the subject is. However, it did come from the blog Homodesiribus.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe

    There’s something so natural and beautiful about this. I mean the guy is 3/4 naked but to me it’s not sexualized. More like a reminder that we’re just creature of nature.

    I may be looking into this more than what needs be, but that was my first reaction.
