Back from the desert

Back from the desert…my favorite place to escape to and get refreshed… Black Rock Desert this time, but two weeks after Burning Man. The playa was still damp in places after the flood. The solitude was magnificent.

Textures and subtle colors of the playa - the ancient seabed that  now Black Rock Derest - were amazing!

Alvin Baltrop - Gay, African American, Photogrpher

Just came across an amazing body of work by Alvin Baltrop. Incredibly creative, he expertly documented the dilapidated pier area of New York City as well as the cruising scene that was happening there. Images masterfully capture exquisite erotic scenes. Wikipedia provides the following brief summary:

Alvin Baltrop (December 11, 1948 – February 1, 2004) was an American photographer. Baltrop's work focused on the dilapidated Hudson River piers and gay men during the 1970s and 1980s prior to the AIDS crisis.

I aspire to what he has created in my own work!

In a bit of a cheeky mood today… not different from most days actually… LOL!!! A hot set of cheeks is always something I totally enjoy from both an aesthetic standpoint and an arousal standpoint…
