Model

Last month we had carnaval celebrations in Santo Domingo. I thought that was the end of the carnaval season. It was not. Several of the smaller towns like Bani, Bonao and Cotui had celebrations in the weeks after carnaval was celebrated in Santo Domingo. One Sunday, some friends and I were driving and decided to head somewhere, but nowhere in particular. We pull into a town that was having their local carnaval celebrations. Actually, because next month there will be congressional elections, it was more like a large campaign rally for those seeking office. While watching the parade of humanity we noticed this tall 6 foot 3 gentleman at the top. My Dominican friend was trying to make small talk with him. To no avail. I then decide to shoot the photo of him above to remember him by. Fast forward to yesterday. I have a friend here and he is looking at the photos on my computer and told me he knew him. Fast forward to this morning and these are photos that I took in the vestibule of my building this Sunday morning. Now I will pass him on to Ernest so we can some professional photos. Great, beautiful day thus far.

He needs to get a little leaner for his upcoming photo session. Too much "mangu con salami", I guess. :p

Needs to get leaner? You must be kidding.

Well good morning to you!

I need to see the rest of him before deciding if I like him or not.... I dislike men with skinny legs. I was not referring to what YOU were thinking!

now at some point....someone has to speak "truthfully". that said, he has a decent profile - but certainly not "model material". those ears look as if he's about to take flight. yes, i know it's difficult to digest, but everybody can't be a model, especially guys with ears that look if they're trying to hear both sides of the story! great skin though!

Truth be told? OK... I would not throw him out of my bed, but he would win no contests, either. That is, unless he has other talents that are not shown in the photos.

That is is a classically beautiful Dominican man! The coloring and the height and the body collectively must be breath taking in person. He may never be on the cover of GQ, but he could be the star of ALL my vacation photos.... SI1

He is Ovah with a capital O. Actually, I'm kind of speechless, and as you may remember, Anthony, that doesn't happen often. lol

Everyone has different taste. But in my book he is one hunk of a man.
