The Shave


My husband shaved his head. I tried to talk him out of it, but the call of mid-life was stronger than my warnings. I told him about how hard it was for me to grow my hair out of the pixie cut you see on my ‘about’ page. My hair is still short and that was a year or two ago. But in the immortal words of Joe Jackson ‘don’t you know that it’s different for girls?’… My husband’s hair is growing out now and he looks so cute that it’s not fair. He looks like one of those scruffy terriers you want to take home from the SPCA… Yes, the bald saga was a short story, he got tired of having to shave such a large area.. he looked good bald though, sort of like Jean Luc Piccard… though I would have preferred a dash of Yul Brenner πŸ˜‰

  1. une Γ©tonnante et amusante photo πŸ™‚

  2. But it’s a very cool look right now. I like the capture and the tone you applied to it and I think he looks good. His glasses match the look. P.S. After seeing this one, I like it best:-)

  3. Cool shot!

  4. lol @ the story.Life aint fair… and man do look sexy without hair, women look ugly without it.

  5. Ohhh, Elaine you have been working him too hard, look at that he has just crashed out on the lounge like a baby. Funny how some seem to go through this midlife crisis but glad it is growing out ;o)… love the tone and angle in the image and your narrative made me smile!

  6. Nice capture Elaine. Sleeping so tightly. Isn’t shaving your head a phase ‘everyone’ go through? I mean some people do it, some just think about it… I didn’t in highschool, it was a relief and an impulse. None the less it’s been tried.Nice about page as well, lovely tones of red πŸ™‚

  7. I envy, I want to sleep too, great portrait

  8. Truely interesting angle. I found the texture of skin quite unique too

  9. Funny story, I’ve never tried the head-shave.

  10. Nice portrait. Love the composition..and the mid-life story behind the ‘shave’. Excellent!

  11. Like the angle of this shot, hope he grows it back before WINTER

  12. I like this portrait – very relaxing

  17. I’ve had that shaved head look for 15 years, there is no other way. Nice cool and natural shot.

  19. Ohh forgot, nice looking layout you got here. I like it! πŸ™‚
