    I find it fascinating to look at the background in a lot of pictures here on RJ.
    A lot of shots are guys on vacation at various spots around the world, at their local beach, in their homes, backyards, pools, etc. Does anyone else not only look at the guy but also at the background? I have to admit I've clicked on some pics for a close up not of the guy but where the pic was taken and what might be hanging on the wall behind them.
    Anyone else do this?

    Yes all the time. I like to look at the comments about where the picture was taken, what year, etc.. I make sure I do the same for my pictures.

    Yes, I have often had the wish that when someone is posed in front of some interesting site, he would tell in the caption where he is.

    HaHa My default picture is taken in the bathroom of the Palazzo in Las Vegas. After an extreme night of partying at club Tao, I woke up looking completely messed up, and I figured hey, even if I'm not in "EMO" gear, I should take bathroom pictures. (I am not nor have I ever been EMO, btw)

    This shot ended up looking pretty awesome! So I decided to keep it

    The one with me snowboarding is at Bear Mountain ski resort. FUCKING AWESOME! I LOVE SNOWBOARDING!

    The long rock bike path into the ocean is taken of me riding my bike throughout the beaches of san diego. Rode from Pacific Beach through Mission Beach into Ocean Beach and Point Loma, then I rode my bike back through. I did this while my car was getting an oil change, I figure I could fit in a work out while I waited instead of having it hold me back.

    The other picture is just me being bored at a hotel in Chicago because my friend was still inside the bathroom.

    There you go.

    I love the background of my photo. Someone on RJ (I think it was GuiltyGear?) pointed out that you can find a butterfly shape in the clouds behind me. Needless to say, I dig the whole framing of my main pic.

    I do I do.

    But I'm mostly interested in messy room backgrounds. You know -- scattered underwear, unmade beds, toothpaste splattered mirrors, that sort of thing. Endlessly fascinating.

    I'm serious here, for once.

    ...


    No, really. I'm serious.

    Totally.

    I do all the time. It's a side effect of being an Architect and always interested in people's surroundings. Mine is my bathroom and shows that I like black an white photos of architecture.

    When I saw this thread I had a mild case of deja vu. ha ha!! http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/257483/

    Well, I can't complain about anyone's backgrounds, since mine are less than inspiring. I took them at the gym, and in one you'll see a garbage can.

    Of course, I hope my lean hard bod will so dazzle the viewer that they won't even notice the pedestrian background icon_biggrin.gif

    I'm wracking my brain trying to remember which pretentious design company sells that wallpaper.

    WOW! Those rubber body-suits really do make you look like other people, ursamajor. But don't you get very hot in them and then wet and start sliding around inside and....oh, I see....well, never mind. icon_redface.gif

    I was going to turn you all on to www.luriddigs.com but ursabear beat me to it. The site is hilarious with tongue-in-cheek critiques of the background tableax that posters to gay sites shamelessly reveal. Check it out - it's addictive.
