Face of the Day – 8.29

Today’s face is Tony Tester.

Face - man with two-tone face

It’s kind of a continuation of yesterday’s kinky hair theme I guess. Tony, his brother Chuck and this guy Phil are Tester, a really fun, loud and raucous band. I first saw them at a bar in Framingham and see them out there from time to time. Since I’m pretty pressed for time today I don’t have much to say.

I will say that what I like about this picture is the half-face thing going on and the colors.

Daily Dozen – Ladies in Red

I was kind of surprised to see I hadn’t already done a set of women in red but it doesn’t seem like I have. It gets tough over time to remember all of the Daily Dozen sets. Pintrist has been really helpful. I can see all of the sets and figure out which ones I either haven’t done or haven’t done in a while. At some point I know I will repeat themes but I’m trying to make sure I don’t reuse the same photos too often. It gets tricky. I do have an evolving system that’s working pretty well. Going back and doing it retroactively is pretty time-consuming though. Such is life.

As I was saying, it was a bit odd that I hadn’t done a set of women in red. There are sets of women with red lipstick, men in red shirts, men with red hair and women with red hair. It’s a good color and I’m glad I’ve finally posted it. Enjoy.

Daily Dozen – Men in Orange

With Men in Black 3 coming out soon I thought I’d do a set of men in a much more conspicuous color: orange. Aside from prison jumpsuits it doesn’t get much play. It’s my favorite color though – along with green. Looking at what men wear it’s mostly dark, neutral and dull. Blacks, browns, white, beige, blue. They’re all fine colors and I wear them all the time; but come on, there’s got to be a little more variety sometimes! Orange was definitely a tough one; out of almost 3,000 images, fewer than 15 featured men wearing it. Any ideas why that would be the case?

Daily Dozen – Beyond the Pale

Yesterday’s set of ruddy-faced men was the prompt for today’s set of pale women. I’ll be honest, I think pale skin is really attractive (of course I think all shades of skin are attractive so that’s not saying much I suppose) and I thought I’d look through my photos to find some examples. There were plenty to choose from but not as many as I expected. Hopefully there will be a few in today’s set that you’ll like.

Daily Dozen – These brown eyes won’t make you blue

When I was a kid, my father would drive us to school (at least for a time). I can’t recall the reason but I enjoyed those rides. Talking about words, listening to “Test the Teams” on WBZ and music too. One of the songs that sticks out in my memory is Crystal Gayle singing “Don’t it Make my Brown Eyes Blue.” I woke up today with a snippet of that song in my head and that’s what led to today’s Daily Dozen. Here are 12 women with nice blue eyes.

Daily Dozen – Red-Headed Men

A few weeks ago I did a set of red-haired women. I also did a set of men wearing red. Today I sent these two ideas racing toward each other and have a set of men with red hair. Red comes in so many tones. A few of these fellows have really bright reds and oranges while others have hair that’s almost blonde. I’m pretty flexible though and included them all. I hope you enjoy them!

Daily Dozen – Womanicure

When I was putting together a set the other day I noticed one of the women in it had fantastic colored nails. So today I’ve decided to focus on nails. Specifically on women with painted nails. I’ve often wondered why colored nails aren’t called womanicures rather than manicures. It’s certainly mostly women who have them. Silly I know.

Here are 12 women with painted nails and a bonus set of just nails. Hope you enjoy!
