Beefcake and Bonding in Old Photographs
This blog is all about past moments, but I'm reliving and re-invigorating them. They're not frozen.
They're not placed carefully into albums but stacked in boxes along with other mementos of yesteryear. They like going through them and remembering.
These are the ones I wonder about.
They aren't random selfies. Someone had to buy flash bulbs and film, take the picture, then send the film to a lab to be developed and pay for the finished product.
They were deliberate. They were important. And someone was there.
Surely some of them were gay. This moment is but one of thousands of days, thousands of nights, thousands of memories.
