In a portrait

image of mollys lover with his back to the camera laying on the bed captures the essence of him

“In a portrait, I’m looking for the silence in somebody.” ~ Henri Cartier-Bresson

When I was looking for a quote to go with this image for Friends round Friday I started off looking at quotes about renaissance art and painting because this image just seemed to capture the essence of a renaissance piece. I think it is the tones but also the texture in the fabric and the way the light is falling across his body. It just has a renaissance painting feel about it but then I stumbled across this quote and it just seemed to fit perfectly.

I took this image of the gorgeous MJ last summer when we managed to spend one whole fabulous night together when Covid was somewhat under control and such shenanigans where possible. I took a few images of MJ that night. This very moment: an image I admit to being really proud off and which I feel like this one captures the essence of him somehow and Utterly Delicious: which captures a very different, but insanely hot, essence of him.

What a gorgeous image. It does look like a painting. The light on the bed folds and his relaxed position make it seem so serene.

This. Is. Stunning. The light, the mood, the frame, the quote, the beautiful curves and textures. Beautiful.
