|Rosaleen Young – In the pink||Rosaleen Young – Restrained
Recently Rincewind commented “there is something amazing about the look of steel…” I have therefore used it as an excuse to post a few more pictures of my favourite actress and model Rosaleen Young – not that I need much encouragement
In honour for reaching his 1 millionth visitor to his blog, today is a Grumpy Old fart day at Erotixx. Reblogging galore for the day, hope you enjoy his blog post in all it’s glory. Since he does have so many post I did the only honourable thing and that was to put in the random command on his blog and whatever came up, is reblogged. Quite a lot of Rosaleen Young, hmm… wonder if he likes her at all.
Can’t remember how I first got hold of Summertimes blog but am sure happy that I did, it is an excellent blog of slightly oddish things, fetishes, maids and old postcards in a big great mix of happiness.
“If you talk to God you’re religious. If God talks to you, you’re psychotic.”
|His 1st howdy to everyone on WordPress:||His first maid to be added to his collection:|
My wife, bless her tells me that I am rapidly becoming, or perhaps that should read have become a “Grumpy old fart”, so what better forum to spread my gloom or paranoia that WordPress.
and his 1st blogpost about the oh so hot Rosaleen Young:
Collecting old postcard and pictures enables the viewer to glimpse a brief moment from that individual’s life; often far removed from their own either by the passage of time or social class. Often described as “history from below” they show everyday people, their social structure and the interaction of different groups. Like the wealthy and politicians these people helped shape and maintain society and so shape history.
Examining the images one can’t help but wonder how the individuals lived, were their lives hard compared with today and were they happy. Often the images come with little or no information that can answer these questions, one can only imagine.
With each image saved and seen by others so that moment, that person is kept alive, our understanding is increased and so our lives are enriched.
|and he has also the gall to post pictures of my girlfriend Louise Brooks, oohhhh…||and soon the maids started showing up at his blog more frequently and now even comes in bunny versions:|
Rincewind has given us a very sexy cosplay catwoman, I’m not too sure how to describe this Cosplay offering other than she is equally as sexy.
But his big love is Ms Gabrielle Ray and why not, she was a stunning girl, so do check out his other blog just about Ms Ray at the aptly named blog Gabrielle Ray, he must have thought hard on what to name that blog
My collection of Miss Ray, although small is growing and this is one of my favourite pictures of her. The photographer is able to manipulate the image through lighting, dress and expression. However there are times when, perhaps in an unguarded moment the subject is caught and the image produced conveys more than possibly intended. It may be that having read the final chapter of Miss Ray’s life, the heroes, villains, plot and ultimate ending is known and so our own interpretation of a particular image becomes coloured. For me this image shows Miss Ray as thoughtful, reflective but more than that, there is a sadness shown in her eyes. Has the photographer caught a prophetic image of the future, do her eyes give us a hint of her sad future? Hopefully not. When I saw this card I knew that I had to have it regardless of the cost. The post date is June 1908, Miss Ray would have been 21.
As the Black and White month draws to a close here is my final contribution,who else but Rosaleen Young . I hope everyone enjoys them and thanks to Rincewind for the opportunity to share some of my favourite images.
Many thanks to Ricewind for asking me to guest blog, I take this opportunity to share some rather beautiful black and white images of the delightful Miss Young as well as some of my vintage postcards. I hope that you will enjoy my contribution.
