Photohunt - Covered

The theme for this week's photo hunt is covered. Here is a photo I took today during a mini-shoot with my nephew. For some reason I like to put my nephew in hijab-style head dresses!

Wow! First of all, it's a powerful photo. I love it. Second of all, I never would have guessed it was a nephew instead of a niece if you hadn't told us - just shows that we expect to see women in those head-dresses, not men!

Great take on the theme Jams!

Ah thank you Annie. I took this photo only a few hours ago and in a bar! I am very pleased how it came out

I like it very much, Jams. I didn't recognise Tim, though. Has Tim had continued contact with a chameleon? What would Sargeant Pluck think?

Sue St Clair said...

That is great photo Jams, love the headress, and the fact this is your nephew! Have a great weekend :)

Thanks Sue. I am very, very please with this photo

I wouldn't have guessed it was your nephew.

Carver said...

That's a great shot. Your nephew is an excellent model for your photography.

jams o donnell said...

Why thank you! Tim is a superb model

Great image and thought-provoking as well.

Colin Campbell said...

Stunning shot. Have you tried a Hijab yourself?

jams o donnell said...

Archie Colin thanks! I've not tried the hijab myself. Tim I think carries the look off better than I would!

this is brilliant!

Thanks everyone! Tim is a man of many faces and looks. He doesn't mind wearing something that looks like a hijab if it provides a photo that has impact Ian.

I have no problem with anyone wanting to wear a hijab. or a veil for that matter, just so long as it is their choice.

One thing that amuses me is that covering the face is a thing of modesty given that hair is meant to turn us men on.

I will freely admit I love long, flowing hair of the sort Shirley (the not-wife) has but hijabs do not detract from beauty. I find that they often frame a woman's face beautifully

He is cute looks like a model heheh. Happy hunting. Mine is up.

Liz said...

That's brilliant.

jams o donnell said...

Ah thanks Genegen. Tim is an aspiring model. He is very. very good too but then I am biased as he is my nephew!

Thanks Liz. I thing that this one is for my portfolio!

Androgynous said...

Very good indeed. Very thought-provoking.

But perhaps cover him up a bit more before he turns me on?

jams o donnell said...

Next time he'll be in a burqa Androgynous. We don't want your loins all aflame!

Alice Audrey said...

That's an interesting way of covering the face. It works well on him.

jams o donnell said...

Why thankyou AA!

JDeQ said...

Love the photo and how you twisted with the viewer's mind a bit. I agree with Annie - poweerful.

Have a great weekend.

Knatolee said...

Wow. I wouldn't have guessed that was nephew! Captivating!

Ann said...

did you sew the chains on too?

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Cool shot, but needs a bicycle chain too for completeness ;-)

jams o donnell said...

What thank you. I have definitely decided that it will be going into my portfolio this shot
