BOASTFUL


This is my contribution to this weeks Sepia Saturday.

I have no information about either of the subjects of this photo other than what can be gleaned from their poses. I'm guessing they both thought of themselves as pretty tough he-men.

  1. At least in the eyes of that shadow photographer, I guess they must have been! LOL

  2. Or both were real ’pussycats’!

  3. Definitely a he-man pose; not so sure about the cat.

    1. My female cat kept taking this pose at the adoption center when two other cats were trying to pick fights with her. The pose might have worked if she didn't keep batting her toy mousie around while trying to look tough. I'll admit that was the moment I knew I was going to adopt her.

  4. That photo is hilarious. You know that he thought a lot of himself. He looks a bit like Sal Mineo.

    1. Indeed, you're right. A Sal Mino vibe.

  5. I like the contrast of he-man and priscilla curtains.

    1. That is too often the case.
      Can I say it kills the mood...
      The stories I could tell!!
      Men are such vain and fragile creatures.

  6. Hilarious was my first thought too! That cat arching its back in affection is a pretty funny commentary on the he-man pose!

  7. Very funny! I wonder whether the similarity in poses was intentional.

  8. That is great! Love this photo, and it would have been interesting to see if the guy was as puffed up in real life as he was in the pose.

  11. This is a fun photo of a young man with something to prove. Wonder if he was like this all the time or just showing off for the photographer.
