Beautiful guys in black-and-white; easy Friday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

There’s nothing quite like black-and-white photography because it forces the viewer to focus solely on the subject of a particular photo, rather than the colors involved. Our naked friend to the left here doesn’t seem too happy, does he? Did he just have a bedroom quarrel with his boyfriend? Or did he fail to perform adequately during sex? We’ll never know, will we?

Because I got up so early yesterday I ended up sleeping late this morning. Now it’s already ten AM and I haven’t accomplished a thing in the writing department. 🙁

It’s okay, I have the morning newspaper to read and then perhaps I’ll take a three-mile walk on the beach before I prepare a simply lunch for myself.

Here’s a second photo I have always cherished. The young man is beautiful, of course, in the way only 19-year-olds can be. But I love the expression on his face and the way the photographer caught the water flying off the model’s head. Beautiful ….

I have an easy Friday ahead of me, really. After lunch I’ll drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and a lap-swimming session. I’ll stop at our neighborhood market for a few things, and then I have to be home by four PM to meet a gentleman who is renting my vacation apartment next door for two weeks.

I have a Netflix DVD arriving in the mail this afternoon that I am really looking forward to watching. It’s a Jeff Bridges film called Hell or High Water and I have seen a few previews that were pretty hilarious.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a wonderful Friday, wherever you might be today. Keep smiling. 🙂
