Knight and King by DanOstergren Knight and King by DanOstergren
And I'm the Squire. :D

Riley, my mentor/ lover in San Francisco being kissed by his partner Adam. I love and miss these two like crazy, and am waiting impatiently for the next time I see them when I move back to SF. This was my last moment with them before leaving back to Oregon.

I love this photo. Not just because it is a loving gay couple, but you've also captured a rare (at least for dA) photo of an older, mature couple in love. :heart:

This photo speaks so eloquently. The simple act of their touching, the kiss, the look on Riley's face... you can see total and complete love, respect, and joy of the other and of them together.

Photographer you did an excellent job. You let your subjects tell the story and did what you were supposed to do, catch that perfect moment in time perfectly. Love the light and shadow play and even how the arrangement behind them helped hold your eye caught in the middle exactly where those beautiful men were.

It's a nice photograph. Thanks for sharing, EzraSavage.

Does anyone else get a feeling of sadness from the image? The photo impresses on me how fleeting life and joy can be. There's an element of wistfulness, or perhaps nostalgia, in that neither man is young anymore, and the pleasures of youth are gone, leaving only memories.

Could be just me being depressed, though.

It's a very subjective element; youth is in the mind, and both men here know how to celebrate their lives and their youth. Growing old is something I personally look forward to.

They look like they would punch your head off if you protest their rights and tell them they're going to hell.

I appreciate this shot for a couple of reasons....
1. It shows great content without an overt sexual tone....what I mean by this is that it is just natural and true.
2. Great lighting
3. The composition creates the pyramid of design
4. There are many planes in the background

Thank you for sharing this!
