The body cools down as water evaporates off wet skin, so then who wouldn't want to jump into the shower with a hot Italian model. Oh to be one of those drops of water cascading over Stefano's moist skin and down his incredible body...
Sorry, these images of Stefano are doing absolutely nothing to cool me off!
Full credit for today's cooling off theme goes to StudioMGphotography. After Mark sent on a few shots of Nicholas (@Nickwithmuscles) in the watermelon kiddie pool, I knew everyone would want to cool down a little with ultra-hot Nicholas. Prior to the shoot, Mark was trying to think of themes and concepts that would create images new and unique to Nicholas' portfolio.
The watermelon pool and toys were ordered and on the way when Mark found out that another photographer had already but Nicolas's hot body, in pool of cool water. Instead of scraping his plan, Mark focused on shooting him from above and creating shots different from the other shoot. Mark could have put him in the regular pool, but not only is Nicholas not that great a swimmer, it wouldn't have been nearly as much fun!
'If someone thinks that peace and love are just a cliché that must have been left behind in the 60s, that's a problem. Peace and love are eternal.'
Will they consider that while that naked guy posed in front of camera, Trump was horrifying the nation with hate and division, Games of Thrones was the talk of TV, Carrie Fisher had died, Brad and Angelina were history, Prince Harry hadn't married yet and opioid crisis was only fraction of what it would eventually become...
One of the reasons I love looking back to images of the past is context. When Champion model Darryl Powers posed on the beach, it was during the decade that Kennedy was assassinated, The civil rights act of 64 was signed, The Vietnam war was in full swing, Rolling Stone Magazine hit the stands and Julie Andrew's The Sound of Music and Mary Poppins were both box office hits.
I first noticed Darryl when I was putting together a small piece a few years ago about some of my favorite Champion models. (Champions) Darryl had a great body, but it was his face that had me sticking away an extra image for a future post. The image I stuck away was the shot (2 above) of Darryl in the row boat.
Darryl rowing naked was hot, but it was the shape of his nose, and especially his beautiful lips that really struck me. I came upon that image again the other day, not in that long deleted folder, but on Pinterest. I was able to find quite a few more great shots of Darryl, most of them, taken on the beach. I wasn't however able to find out much about him.
