Von Gloeden Sunday, Part 1 - Some Nudes

Wilhelm von Gloeden was a 19th Century German who moved to Taormina, Italy and took up photography of young men.  He was also known to have bedded quite a few, and had to leave the country at one point to avoid arrest for "corrupting the youth."  (Something tells me a lot of those guys had been around the block, but whatever.)  Anyway, I'm making it von Gloeden Day, starting with a group of five nudes, most of whom are not quite as youthful as the typical von Gloeden model.
