Intrepid Richard: On the road again

Standard

Some photos have been popping up on the Internet of RA at (I am assuming) the airport. He’s dressed down in well-worn jeans, a clingy tee-shirt (hello, biceps! Nice to see you again!) and shades, sporting his backpack. The boy next door–the really gorgeous and sexy boy–on the road again.  Now, one of the best photos of Richard had him posing with a gentleman. Nothing against this pleasant-looking guy in his Walking Dead tee, but I really preferred the image with just RA.   So, naturally, I had to do some photo editing . . .  these were done with PicMonkey, a free online photo editing site that is fast becoming a favorite of mine.  Teutcher, this one’s for you, darlin’.

One for the scrapbook, that’s for sure.

Love the classic look of this one.

  1. Oh my, I nearly passed out. I find him extremely beautiful in these. Carefree, relaxed, perhaps. I also like those shades on him. Where did you find these? Is there a story behind them?

    • They popped up in a couple of different places on the web. I have no idea who the guy in the uncropped photo is so I don’t know the story behind them. If I find out more and I will let y’all know. It’s the same photo–I just reversed and straightened one of them, intensifying the colors, and then converted the other to B&W and used focus blur, which I really am loving the look of. He does look great, doesn’t he?? Just this gorgeous, unassuming guy, traveling light, on his way to–who knows?

      • OH MY DEAR!!!! (I could almost hear “Lady Denny’s” voice there!!! 😉 )I’m quite overcome!!! How can I/we thank you enough for this? So heart-stopping! 🙂 I love the way he looks in these pics! I mean just look at him!! *sigh*

        I’m a little puzzled though, at how shocked people were to see him thus! “Normal” was a common comment and it made me wonder what they actually expected to see!! I guess they have got used to seeing “celebrity” types, but here they see before them someone who I’m positive looks on himself as an ordinary guy with none of the “look at me” attitude you see in many of these so-called stars and certainly no affectations. As we have often said, “No trutting peacock here!” Even the way he is dressed in no way calls attention to himself – just the opposite in fact! Yet another example of why we find ourselves attracted to this modest self-effacing guy!! What a sweetheart! 🙂

        • I was one who commented on loving the normalcy of this shot, with Richard dressed for comfort while travelling and carrying a backpack, just a regular guy, no ego about him.
          Pics like these have been a rarity in the past. We’ve seen photos of him arriving and leaving radio/TV interviews and promotional appearances, and behind the scenes candid shots, but I can recall very few of this kind where he is going about his day to day business. He’s admitted to getting around with a fair degree of anonymity in the past but that’s all about to change in the next few months, I reckon.
          Teuchter, you are so right, he really is an absolute sweetheart!

  2. I wish he was stopping over at my place.For tea of course…. lol….A great find. I like photos with fans (spooks, christchurch,etc). He comes accross as appoachable and always seems to be enjoying the interaction with the fan/s. I like to witness that human connection between him and the fanbase. Thanks for these.

    • Someone mentioned there is such a normalcy about him in these photos. Just this “regular guy” who is so out of the ordinary, quietly going about his business. Yes, his humanity really signs through in these moments.

      • You did well to crop it and just leave the important image on the pic. LOL. I do like the B&W but I think the color one is more vibrant and gives a real life feel. The B&W is more poetic, it seems like it is part of a story, a biography maybe, if that makes any sense.

  3. Ha!..so many readers and commenters,congratulations Angie!:)
    me:he is so intelligent.
    my hubby:..and beautiful:D
    me:he is so eloguent
    my hubby:..and beautiful:D
    me;he is so charming
    my hubby:..and beautiful:D
    …we were talking a while in that manner..;)

    • A common enough conversation around the globe. My middle son acknowledges his abilities as an actor and has seen all his films, but he did say at one point with a huge twinkle in his eye:”He’s a really good actor, but I can understand why you like him, mum!”

      • There’s the necklace again!!! I want to know what he’s wearing on that necklace! Please Rich show us already! I’m not a cat but curiosity will kill me sooner rather than later! Ha!

  4. Only Richard could be this beautiful in a tee-shirt and jeans, with a backpack and all. I’ve seen plenty of the male of the species at airports last month and none of them came even close.

    “Love is a stranger in an open car …” Hop right in, Richard. Wherever you want to go, I’ll get you there (in my dreams).

  5. One of his truly rare private pics! It’s….ooooooooo sooooo mind-blowing! Leaves me a bit restless.. Thanks Angie!! This is somehow a precious gift for me and us all. BTW Does he already start to hide a wee bit behind huge sunglasses???

    • He’s a private guy so maybe those big shades make him feel more comfortable. And maybe his eyes are like mine, really light-sensitive so he needed protection from the SoCal sun and just left them on LOL

  6. Doesn’t he look lovely and so normal. I love those sunglasses. Travelling again he’s certainly a very busy chap!!

    • I don’t think he’s gained weight, I think his muscle mass may have shifted a bit. All that swordplay likely built up his upper body more. And keep in mind the camera adds pounds. People who saw him in person at the event said he looked slimmer than they expected. 😉

  7. I’m no fashionista, but those sunnies are seriously stylish. I’m hoping someone will be able to identify them, just as Richard’s Burberry coat and Balmain jeans (at CC) have been. They are very different to the ones he has worn before:

    Then there’s Porter’s shades:

    I’m trying to work out which ones I like on him best…not that I don’t have anything else to think about…at least, nothing that interests me quite as much. 😉
