Fine Art Nude!!!


One more thing...what does the tattoo say?

avatar Mad

Very brave and very beautiful! Well done.

well done, you are all lucky that I didn't get that brave.

avatar cocor
cocor says:

Great! Irony is the greatest thing humans (can) have.... Pleased to see you and your leg!

avatar creativefreedom

I am going to have nightmares, just kidding, how very brave of you

avatar rbsgrl
rbsgrl says:

Fabulous! Looks like a winner to me!

author says:

Well, thank you all for your comments. I never knew I was that "brave." I fully understand that I won't be driving all the beautiful women on the site mad with lust, but that's ok. I have my wife of 24 years who I still love, and who still loves me (there's no accounting for some people's taste). But I've also never subscribed to the idea that only young, beautiful, fit people should be comfortable with the body they inhabit. Yes, 30 years ago it would have been a VASTLY different picture. And, by the light of day I can see some changes I should have made (geez, I should have at least combed my hair!), and how I could have positioned things so they were more complimentary, but this is the bod I have. If you buy into the media's concept of beauty, about 97% of people are going to be disappointed, because the concept of beauty is only valid if it's unattainable by most.

Oh. And karaflazz.... the ink is from our family crest from the 1400's where a bull (allegedly) saved one of my ancestors on his way home from the crusades by chasing off some Moors who were attacking him. It says "Fortis Sed, Non-Ferox," which means "Strong, but not Ferocious," which the king said described our family's character.

avatar rbsgrl
rbsgrl says:

Very well said author! I guess I am in the 3% because I think this photo is beautiful. Being comfortable, accepting and happy with who and what you are is the most secure feeling in the world. I think that makes this photo sexy.

avatar gotmeamuse

You just need a new paint job bro! Nice to see the guy that just freaking cracks me up week after week! The photo rocks!

avatar maclu2iaf
maclu2iaf says:

nice work here sir...you managed to balance that masculine and feminine look.

avatar FallingHorse

Well done author. "Strong, but not Ferocious" would have mad a great title too.

very very nice artistic shot author...well done
