I haven't gotten the chance to get totally caught up on last weeks Broadway Bares, but I've started... One of the many highlights so far was has been Ouija, featuring the oh so talented and hot Spencer Clark. Clark, currently on Broadway in Frozen is mesmerizing, as is the entire ensemble.
I can't exactly say that I spent my childhood summer's in Maine, but I can say I spent many summers as a kid driving through Maine. Usually I was in a car driving North, South or East of the The Pine Tree State, but I loved my drive through's and the stops along the way. One summer we did beg our parents to stop at Old Orchard Beach and I almost regret that they said yes... Our stop was so quick, it only had me wanting to stay and enjoy the area longer.
It was perfect timing then, that as spring officially turned to summer last week, Derrol (DrDerrol) sent on these shots from Maine. Many of you might remember Derrol from my previous piece featuring Derrol's work on The Pure. (Paint Removal) There's no body paint this time, just Derrol, his camera and the captured sites while visiting his family in Maine.
'It’s always nice to get back home for a visit into the woods of Maine and away from the hustle and bustle of California! I’m always happy when the family is away for the day because that means I get to have some naked time in the woods...the woods and being naked! Two things I love!!'
Whenever I visit home, whether for a day, or a week, I always find myself needing a break from my family. I love them dearly, but not having lived there for awhile, it can be stressful trying to integrate back into the rhythm and schedule of our parents and siblings. My dogs were always my saving grace, those nightly walks served a different purposes for myself and the dogs. Let's just say, we all felt relieved through the experience.
For Derrol, his 'alone' time away was a naked walk in the woods. Without worrying too much about the additional delicious spots for ticks to latch onto, Derrol strolled through the Maine woods with just his camera to catch the sites. It is also lupin season in the North East, and lupins always ensure nature's pathways are lined with brilliant pinks and purples.
As well as my drive thru's, when I think of Maine, I think of all the summer's I spent there via Stephen King. King is my favorite author, and his tales of Maine always weaved the local flavor with of course a dash of the sinister... Derrol's adds a sexy sprinkle of sinister in the shots with the axe, and of course his wood.

Although many States, especially Southern States welcome retiree's, the traditional retiree magnet of Florida continues to attract the highest number of enthusiastic new beginners. It was Fort Lauderdale, Florida where the retired Anthony Timiraos connected with soon to be retired model Rixio. Anthony didn't retired to Florida to sit on a porch swing, in fact he's been busier than ever, especially with his photography, since moving South back in 2003.
Rixio isn't exactly retiring to sit on his ass either, although his beautiful behind may be planted in the sand on occasion after he moves back to Venezuela later this month. Thankfully, before Rixio left for his new beginnings, Florida provided the nexus for Anthony, who's photography career has soared since 'retiring' to Florida, and Rixio, who's time in front of professional camera's was coming to a close.
Rixio reached out to Anthony after checking out his photography on Instagram and on his website. They initially met at the studio to discuss working together and left with a shoot schedule for two weeks later. When I got in touch with Rixio, we was in the process of packing and moving, but took the time to share his experience working with Anthony. Rixio has been in front the camera since he he was a teenager, posing for countless photographers for commercial and advertising campaigns. Now, at almost 50 years old, Rixio is choosier about who he works with, and describes Anthony as one of the best.
'I have had the privilege to work with Anthony Timiraos, to be perceived from his optics and that sensitivity that he possesses to capture the drama of male beauty. The nudity, without hiding the reality of how it transforms itself over time, showing how sublime and aesthetic is still the body of man... He's an artist!'
I can see the resemblance, especially when Armie's sporting a bit of facial hair. Rixio certainly has both the look, and aura of a movie star with his chiseled face, and alluring brown eyes. Those features as you can see, are just the tip of Rixio's many impressive attributes. Despite the power and strength of his appearance, Anthony says that in person, Rixio is incredibly handsome, but with a very quiet personality, he is very polite, but also with a great sense of humor.
