Scythe


Our last Labor Day farmer is a photo that I carelessly saved with only 
a stock number and no info, but I suspect it is another by Gustave Roud.

  1. Nice series, Jerry. As with the cowboys series' you've posted, I tend to find the real farmer / cowboy photos more appealing than the model ones. I guess authenticity adds to the overall appeal and aesthetic.

    1. Authenticity is a big plus, even when no real nudity is involved. Glad you enjoyed the series, Peter.

    2. In the words of Princess Nympho (Mel Brooks - History of the World): Very nice selection! And I have to agree with Peter 1000% about the aesthetic appeal, even tho the Reaper is not naked. Something about a beautiful guy who is unselfconconsious about his looks that attracts me.

  2. This is a great posting, Jerry. Thanks. If that male in the very last picture were smiling, he'd be a knockout. What a torso!

  3. He looks a little angry to be carrying a scythe if you ask me. I would have made myself scarce.

  4. I was not familiar with this photographer so I Googled him and a whole raft of "farmer pics" filled my screen. What a happy find! Thank you!
