Back in January '08 I stumbled across some beautiful photos of former Project Runway contestant Jack Mackenroth taken by Frank Louis. Truly stunning pictures. There was one image in particular that especially called to me and I answered by doing a pen and ink version which you can see here. Scroll down for that drawing. In that posting, I included a link to Frank's photography site. I believe it was the very next day when after noticing a number of hits coming from my site, that Frank sent me a very nice thank you email. We've exchanged many messages since and he was even kind enough to participate in my Prop 8 Portrait series. You can see the ink painting I did of Frank here.
I check his site often and it was only a few minutes ago that I saw the cover of DNA Magazine which he shot. Here's a partial glimpse.
It was like a bolt of lightning had shot through my right eye and then out the left and temporarily blinded me. It was like looking at a solar eclipse. Sweet, sweet Jesus. To see the full image (my apologies to Frank for the cropping by the way) please click here. The guy is wearing shorts, that is to say--- he's working some shorts, in the link so I believe it's safe for work. However..... there's no mistaking he's a man when you see the full shot. God in heaven! It's maybe NSFR, which means not safe for relationships. I've already committed mental adultery with that model.
After you've looked at Frank's homepage, click on through to all his galleries and make sure you bookmark his site. There's plenty of beauty to be seen there.
Thanks Franks for all the stunning photography!
