Don’t know what’s behind today’s set. I think it was just opening my photo stream and seeing a picture of a woman wearing pearls. I can’t vouch for all of the pearls in these photographs being real, but it’s the thought that counts.
I was listening to Bob Wills this morning on my way in to work. The first time I heard him was in 1989 and boy was that music fun. Wendy and I drove cross country that summer to move from Boston to San Francisco and we must have listened to the tape of his 24 greatest hits a hundred times. That was just about 23 years ago now. It seems much more recent than that. While I was thinking about that trip I thought of the friends who saw us off and the friends who welcomed us to California. That got me thinking about friends in general and made me wonder how many friends from 20 or more years ago I might have photographs of. The search led to this set. I’ve gone with people I’m not related to by blood or marriage. At some point I’ll do a family set. Not today though.
Hopefully it goes without saying that this set features men. It’s funny all the different ways chest hair can make itself known. Obviously if a fellow is shirtless you’re likely going to see some hair. Likewise if they’re wearing an open shirt. On one occasion I was doing a photo shoot and someone was all buttoned up but had neglected to wear an undershirt and tufts of hair were poking out from between his buttons. The photos below feature chest hair in a wide variety of situations. Enjoy.
