Images from the 2014 Downton Abbey Calendar provide a few clues as to what the upcoming 4th season has in store. Personally I am still mourning the loss of Matthew, Lady Sybil and Ms O'Brien. Heck, I still miss William!
For a show only about 25 episodes in, there certainly has been a major slaughtering of characters. Besides the one liners from The Dowager Countess, it is actually Lady Edith who is bringing me back. After getting jilted at the alter last season, hoping this season she might actually find some happiness! Here's hoping death finds the wife of her editor!
'With Robert J. Guttke, if you see a model, 30 feet in the air, with a firm grip dangerously clinging atop a crane, there is actually a man, 30 feet in the air, firmly gripping that crane. That, is but one reason Robert's work stands out.' Tye Briggs, FH
'One of the more remarkable shots I did was of the twins & Sara standing on a girder that had to be 3- stories high. The sun was setting behind me, dropping below the trees so it appears as if dark boots were seeping up from their feet.'
Today, if you see something incredible in an image, something that looks like it could not possibly have been done, in most cases, it was created through photoshopping. Photo manipulation has become fairly standard, an easy, and cheaper way to achieve the desired results. The ability for almost anyone to easily get their hands on a photo editing program has brought forth mixed results. The ability to manufacture almost anything your mind can think up has certainly led to some amazing visuals. It has also lead to an almost watering down of creativity. Yes, almost anyone can use an editor to create magic, but the question is, if digitally manipulated, are you really being creative and is it still art?
Robert J. Guttke believes that if you want three magnificent bodies high atop a beam jutting out of an old ammunition factory, you actually put them there. Robert's latest post his new blog, Exquisite Pain, takes a closer look, behind the scenes of how exactly he was able to capture the incredible images above. If you're like me, one of your first questions is why exactly are they climbing naked? Check out Exquisite Pain to find out more!
With the heat and humidity stalled over most of the East Coast, it was refreshing to be visually transported onto a beach in Hamburg Germany while viewing these incredible images from Ursus von Schwarzenberg.
You can literally feel the heat of the sand, and the coolness of the water caressing the skin on Lukas. Lukas spends his days working as an independent consultant in the IT business and it is through modeling he gets to unleash his creative side and let off steam. Lukas had stopped modeling awhile ago but recently rediscovered how much he loved being in front of the camera.

'My agents called me in for work on Friday to do a scene on How I Met Your Mother where I get molested by Wayne Brady. I had to leave Colorado the next morning. How could I say no to that?!'
'Within the general brotherhood of man, concerning male sexuality, a significant percentage of men live with a closely guarded secret. More common than most people think, these men are dealing a same sex attraction. Most people, other than those they may have shared their secret with, don’t realize how many men have some degree of sexual attraction to other men. Contrary to most moral codes and various religious beliefs, these feelings are quite common and natural. They are feelings that number among the human emotions I deal with through the characters in my novels.'
I have been a long time fan, and reader of author Martin Brant's blog Enlightened Male. Some of you mind find it a bit provocative, but that is exactly what makes it so alluring. Besides incredible imagery, Martin writes on subjects that are fun, erotic and of course enlightening. Some of the subjects just in the past couple of months include; Two Wives and Two Husbands, Clothes Free, A Young Man’s Feminine Side & A Man’s Desire for Breast Milk. Check out Enlightened Male HERE:
This past March I featured the work of photographer Bryan Nevin and his images of Brandon Connelly. you can check out Bryan's incredible new images of Marcus Isaacs over at the Man Crush Blog HERE:
There were so many images from the series I wanted to feature that I decided to separate them over two Sunday's. So glad that I did as Han's put together an all new video incorporating even more of his photos. Check it out below!
If you have not checked out Han's new tumblr, head on over now! Han's regularly updates with new images, videos and themes not seen anywhere else!
In Il compleanno, (David's Birthday, 2009) Matteo (Massimo Poggio) is a happily married, self made man, who loves his wife, his daughter and his job. That is until he and his wife, along with another couple, rent a beautiful house on the Italian coast for the summer. From the first moment Matteo sees David, (Thyago Alves) he becomes obsessively drawn to the young student.
Who can blame him really, Brazilian model turned actor Thyago Alves could turn the head of almost anyone. With his incredible body and face, not to mention that head of hair, Metteo didn't stand a chance.
