Favorite Pic of the Day for October 9th

~Check out today's BIRTHDAYS HERE:~


'I've been places, and I've seen things... dark, dark things...'
Turkey Baster

Anyone who has cooked a turkey, knows how important it is to keep the meat moist.  Regular basting is key to a moist bird that literally falls off the bones.  Every half hour or so, you gather the liquid from the bottom and spread it all over the top.  Some of you may remember Lucas who's work with Studio1x led last year's FH Thanksgiving celebrations. (A Simple Thanksgiving)  I of course tucked away a few extra shots of Lucas and his turkey baster.


Beef Wellington

'Give them great meals of beef and iron and steel, they will eat like wolves and fight like devils.'
William Shakespeare

Although poultry's usually on the menu, there's always room on a Thanksgiving table for a little slice of beef.  In this case, the hunk of beef is Wellington, model Hansel Wellington.  Thanks to photographer Tom Nakielski, (Lights On Studio) Hansel has been a part of more holidays, and more Thanksgiving Day celebrations on the site than any other male model.

Over the years, we've seen a lot of Hansel's bountiful harvest, his juicy pumpkins and his horn of plenty.  Given Thanksgiving is all about family and tradition, I couldn't let the day go by with a visit from Hansel and his work with Tom. You can check out all of Hansel's work on FH HERE:

An Autumn in Ontario: Matt Eldracher by Briancan Photography

'The camera loves him. I don't have any bad shots of him. Matt's also lovely and hairy.  I am a huge fan of natural body hair'

'The first shoot Brian and I did was an Autumn outdoor shoot at the Scarborough bluffs, being "aux naturel" dans la nature, or in the buff in a natural setting  After hitting it off in that shoot he reached out again to this time do a studio shoot in the winter (brr outside)'

Horror Hunks: Jay Ellis in Escape Room

'A withdrawn student is challenged by a professor to do something that scares her over Thanksgiving.'

So ok, Escape Room isn't exactly a Thanksgiving movie, but given it takes place around the holiday, I'll stretch the theme just a bit.  When it comes to male nudity and Thanksgiving movies, the pickings are slim, especially when it comes to horror.

I've not seen the 2019's horror flick Escape Room, but I did check out a few clips and interviews with actor Jay Ellis on Youtube.  I have been looking to feature Jay for awhile, after first seeing him last year in the mini-series Mrs. America.  Ellis played lawyer Franklin 'Frank' Thomas, and is shown in a few brief scenes having a fling with Gloria Steinem. (Rose Bryne)

Ellis did not get a great deal of air time, but he certainly made a big impression on me.  When I looked for more on the hot and talented young actor, I found tons of rear nudity of Ellis from his role on HBO's Insecure.  I don't currently watch the series, but I certainly intend to give it a closer look...
