Herb Ritts (1952-2002) was a leading American fashion photographer in the 1980s and 1990s, known for his bold, sensual images of supermodels and celebrities.  The MFA exhibit which opens later this week revisits the artist, whose 1996 retrospective “Herb Ritts:  WORK” remains one of the museum’s most popular exhibitions to date.

Perhaps I reached a breaking point or maybe I’m just missing the recent vacation Sergio and I took to Grand Cayman earlier this February. Either way, on Monday I asked readers to share their warm weather photos and a few of you took me up on my request (thank you by the way).

Do you live some place that is warm year round or have you happened to take a vacation somewhere warm to escape the winter? I’d love to share a photo of you smiling in the sun.

Email me your warm weather photo at bosguymail@gmail.com. All I ask is that you include your name (just first name is fine) and where you are.

Tweet of the day: Cindy Crawford without Photoshop

Tweet of the Day Cindy CrawfordLast week this image of Cindy Crawford created quite a stir on Twitter.  I think Charlotte Wilder put it best when describing her reaction when she wrote, “Until last weekend, I thought of myself as the kind of woman who wasn’t affected by how the media portrays women. I thought I was too aware and too savvy to hold myself to standards of beauty that are unreal. Magazines Photoshop everybody and everything. Everyone knows that.

I’m not posting this image to comment on how Cindy Crawford looks.  I’m posting this picture because I think even jaded savvy consumers like you and me are deluded if we think we have a healthy understanding of what a gorgeous woman like Cindy Crawford looks like as she ages (quite gracefully I might add).

I don’t begrudge anyone who wants to Photoshop their photos or engage in any kind of nip and tuck to help hide their years, but I do think that we would all be better off if we kept this image firmly in mind.  Cindy Crawford is beautiful, but she isn’t 18 years old so let’s stop pretending that is an ideal one can maintain. Youth is precious because it is fleeting. If it was forever it wouldn’t be coveted.

Dreaming of summer

Swan BoatsI’m a wimp. I had to get out of town to feel the warmth of the sun and forget about all this cold and snow.  For those who cannot get away, save this photograph which is posted on Boston.com’s Tumblr page.  Better yet, check out all the wonderful images people have submitted that remind you of how wonderful Boston is in the summer months <sigh>.


muscles, shirtless man, hunkHow I wish I had the discipline, genes and whatever else it would take to be this fit. But then I remember I like french fries and ice cream (but not at the same time because that would be gluttonous).

The unorthodox Orthodox 2015 calendar

The OC (Orthodox Calendar) is now selling their 2015 calendar and other materials.  The calendar which was first published in 2012 is the brainchild of a group composed mostly of Orthodox eastern Europeans of the former communist region.

The calendar takes an ironic (and somewhat erotic) approach to the Orthodox Church, which recently has been embroiled in artist repression, questionable behavior and homophobia.  Intrigued? Want to see more or perhaps order a calendar for 2014? Visit their website, www.orthodox-calendar.com.
