Pic Series of the Day: Tyler Kenneth by Byron Motley

Byron Motley:

Multi-talented Byron Motley is not just a photographer. Byron is also a singer, filmmaker and Author. I spent the last while listening to Byron the singer, and I tell you at the end of a hard day, Byron's soothing voice is certainly a welcome way to relax. My favorite track thus far is 'Lush Life', though I am always a sucker for a great version of 'Alfie'. You can find out much more about Byron the man, Byron the talent and listen to a bit of his music at his website found HERE:

Besides Byron's impressive music and film making talents, photography is also a passion, and it was his photography that first led me to Byron's work. I so dislike seeing a great photo and not being able to track down the photographer. That is what happened the first time I saw the last photo in this post of model Tyler Kenneth. It was beautiful, yet simple and there was something about Tyler's eyes that made me want to get to know a bit more about the model and the person behind the lens. Finally I saw another pic of Tyler that had his name attached, and that quickly led me to Byron. Byron does not just photograph beautiful men, you can see more of his work at his site above.

Tyler Kenneth:

Byron's work with Tyler is a beautiful beginning to what I predict will be a successful leap into the world of modeling for Tyler. Yes Tyler has an amazing body, but it is face that first drew me in. Still so young at 20, yet there is beauty and depth in his face and eyes that Byron captured. He expressed both a youthfulness as well as a soulfulness that speaks beyond the image itself.

Hunks I don't Get....

This blog has been devoted to some of my favorite things. There are some pretty popular Hunks out there that have always been a mystery to me. I don't dislike them so much as not get the appeal. Here are a few that are a mystery to me. I welcome your comments, especially why you think I am wrong. Check out the poll to the right to share with me the hunks you don't get as well.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Sorry for this first one, I know he is one of the most popular guys in the bloggisphere... But Cristiano Ronaldo does nothing for me. Can I see he is hot...for sure, but I require a bit more in a guy than just a bod. Any guy remotely connected to Paris Hilton also automatically loses points in my bood.

George Clooney:

George Clooney seems the 'straight mans' hunk. It seems straight men feel safe for some reason naming George Clooney as hunk of the century. Women seem to like him too. Not I. I loved George on ER, he did some of his best work on that show, but as far as hunks go, give me Anthony Edwards or Eriq La Salle any day. Also, does anyone but me have no interest in those Ocean movies! I would rather go to the dentist than an Ocean movie. Talented for sure, but George does nothing for me in the hunk department.

Jared Padalecki:

First let me say, like some others, I like Jared Padalecki. As a fan of 'Gilmore Girls' Jared was certainly a cutie. My problem with Jared is that I often find him rather bland. Might be his acting, or might be that in his two biggest roles on 'Gilmore Girls' and 'Supernatural' he has played against for more interesting actors to me. (On GG, I was a big Jess (Milo Ventimiglia) fan who was a far more interesting character. On Supernatural, not sure who could shine standing next to Jensen Ackles! Even when seeing Jared as the lead in the recent 'Friday The 13th' I could not help but feeling Jared was playing 'tough' more than actually being tough. Cute and likable for sure, but beyond that Jared often fades into the background in most of the projects I have seen him in.

Matthew McConaughey:

Killer bod for sure, but with the exception of some early work in drama's I have yet to see a recent Matthew McConaughey movie that I like. He might be fun for a one night stand, but beyond that, MacConaughey does nothing for me. Seems like he would make an amazing friend, funny and full of life, but that is far as it goes for me.

Tom Selleck:

Growing up in the 80's, it seemed like the only hunk that mattered on tv was Tom Selleck. I did not see it. Might have been the stash, might have been the fact I never watched more that 2 minutes of Magnum, but Tom Selleck's appeal was always a mystery to me. Tom, like George Clooney above, might be one of those guys who appeals more to women than men but the closest I got to liking Tom was his stint on 'Friends'.

Patrick Dempsey:
I remember thinking Patrick Dempsey was cute in some of his early movies. I remember thinking Dempsey was talented when I saw him guest on shows like 'Once And Again' and 'The Practice'. I also remember that once Grey's Anatomy started any positive feelings I had went out the window. Maybe it was because I much prefer Justin Chambers (who I think has twice the talent and appeal) or maybe it was seeing Dempsey on talk shows appearing, to me anyway, quite arrogant about his new found 'Hunk' status. There was also something 'off' to me when reading about Patrick and his wife. Don't get the appeal...

Jonas Brothers:
Yes, I am 34, so maybe it is the fact the Jonas Brothers are so young, or maybe it is because I am more of an alternative rock kind of guy, but I for the live of me cannot get the appeal of the Jonas Brothers. I can see however the appeal to a 13 year old girl, and for them, the Jonas Brothers seem to be pretty decent role models. Beyond that though, the hype goes over my head.

Robert Pattinson:

Like many of the guys above, I do like Robert Pattinson. But...I really liked him in 'Harry Potter'. Maybe it was all the build up about 'Twilight' that turned me off a bit (I thought the movie did not come close to living up to it's hype...) or maybe it is because if I had my pick of 'Twilight' vamps it would be Cam Gigandet by a mile! I was on the fence about including Robert as besides 'Twilight' and 'Harry Potter' I have yet to see him in anything, so I reserve the right to remove him from the list in the future.
