Found Summer Photo: Equity

A few folks have asked me, “Chuck, why do so many of your summer photos feature scantily clad women?  You’re a progressive guy, an avowed feminist–what’s the deal?”

I get it. I do. It’s probably a cop-out to point out that beach, and beach-related attire, are iconic summer images, but there’s that.  I struggle with the whole objectification issue, I really do–but if someone wanted to objectify me I’d be okay with it.  I’m sure there’s some twisted fetishist out there for whom my whole “fat old man” vibe resonates.  Dream away, friends–just remember that I’m taken.

In the end, it comes down to public safety.  Stray too far from the time-tested memes of summer, and there’s no telling what you’ll get.

We’ve only got four days of Summer remaining, and I’ve not only got Found Summer Photos lined up for each of those days, but I’ve collected a fair portion of next year’s entries as well–something to which we can look forward over the long, cold winter that’s sure to come.

About JunkChuck

Native, Militant Westsylvanian (the first last best place), laborer, gardener, and literary hobbyist (if by literary you mean "hack"). I've had a bunch of different blogs, probably four, due to a recurring compulsion to start over. This incarnation owes to a desire to dredge up the best entries of the worst little book of hand-scrawled poems I could ever dream of writing, salvageable excerpts from fiction both in progress and long-abandoned. and a smattering of whatever the hell seems to fit at any particular moment. At first blush, I was here just to focus on old, terrible verse, but I reserve the right to include...anything. Maybe everything, certainly my love of pulp novels growing garlic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and howling at the moon--both figuratively and, on rare occasions, literally.
