Late Sunday Smorgasbord: “Reel” & “Real” RA

Standard

WP is being a naughty bunny and not letting me post any more pix–I keep getting error messages–so these four will have to suffice for now. Enjoy! I finally got enough relief from the pain in my side to get some much-needed sleep during the day, so that’s why I am quite late getting additional posts made. I also have another video roughly an hour away from debuting, so I will share that with you later. Been watching “Secrets of Highclere Castle”–fascinating stuff–and the season debut of “Downton Abbey.” I have managed NOT to talk to Thumper in an English accent this time around. 😉

Oh, my. Once again I am discombobulated. But in a good way.

And the reason for my  discombobulation (finding oneself flustered into a state of confusion or disconcertion) was seeing this image from an Asian movie magazine at Richard Armitage Net:

I really should be asleep, or attempting to do so, but I’ve had this annoying pain in my upper left side for a couple of days–a pulled muscle, I am quite certain–and it’s hard to get comfy. So I decided to check RANet to see what I’d missed and lo and behold, I found the above image.

Now, I wish there wasn’t that big ol’ shadow, and I wish they hadn’t Photoshopped away his forehead scar or some of his lovely smile lines–but it’s still a stunner.  The gaze, the stubble, the open collar on the black shirt, the faintest hint of a smile that makes you wonder what he’s thinking . . . so I was forced, forced I tell you, to play with this image.  Here are some of the results. Yeah, there’s even more, and I still don’t think I am done having fun. 😉

Hot in the City: Richard Armitage

Standard

Yes, yes, I know–Richard is not from New York City, but a lovely lad from Leicester and, later, London. But he is basing himself part-time in the Big Apple these days and he’s done several photo shoots there. And there there’s the fact this song just stuck in my little old LA head. ‘Cause I really like the way he walks and talks and wears his big city clothes . . . and oh, those looks he can give us! 😉 And he’s quite the urbane cosmopolitan gent these days . . . wouldn’t you agree? 🙂
