HAPPY EASTER!


It's a welcome return for the blog's mascot Bloggy Bear.
Where have you been Bloggy?
Looks like he's got lots of chocolate to get through this holiday
weekend.


Below that seasonal favourite, The climax of 'Easter Parade'
with Fred and Judy.

Francisco Serrano and The Ramirez Triplets


It seems that everything that Francisco Serrano touches turns
to gold. Just recently the 17 year old ballet artist from The
Sarasota Cuban Ballet School in Florida performed
in New York earlier this month at the Youth America Grand
Prix competition.
Along with fellow student Gabriella Stilo they won the gold
medal in the pas de deux division performing "La Corsaire."

Apparently Francisco will be heading to London later this year
to take up his place at The Royal Ballet School, having received
a scholarship.
Francisco's family come from Cuba and it wasn't until I watched
an amazing ballet documentary on tv this week that I realized
how ballet and dance is very important in Cuba. It is after all
home to the world's most famous dancer Carlos Acosta.
The documentary was called 'To Dance Like A Man' and it
featured three amazing triplets, the Ramirez brothers who at the
time of filming were only 11 years old. Now they're pushing
fourteen and training at The National School of Ballet in
Havana Cuba. They certainly were a treat to watch, and with
their idol Acosta now aged 40 you imagine that it wont be too
long before dancers like Francisco and the Ramirez brothers
become well known on the International Dance scene.

And watching that documentary on the triplets it became clear
that ballet and dance is so loved by the Cuban's. It's not a class
pastime activity like it is here in the U.K. Here we tend to look
down on ballet as if it's only for the privileged.

Below at the bottom of this post is the amazing Francisco
Serrano performing in New York at The YAGP Competition.

Latin Beauty....Angelo!


Latin beauty Angelo Cortina describes himself as a model,
actor and adventurer. And he certainly does have those
dark brooding latin looks.
The above and below images are from a black & white editorial
by German photographer Jonas Huckstorf from Hamburg and were taken in New
York last year.
Angelo calls himself Captain Cortina on his Webstagram page,
where more images of this beauty can be found.

Postcards From Cornwall.....Big Surf!




Here's a couple of images I took down in Cornwall a couple of years ago.
The waves looked pretty spectacular on the day but not many surfers were
prepared to take on the wild and messy conditions.
In the top image above is one of the girls from a local surfing club that
seemed quite happy to tackle the tricky conditions.
Porthmeor Beach sometimes looks almost tropical on those flat calm
days, but I always think it looks more spectacular on those wild rough
days.

Jordan


JORDAN BARRETT
IMG MODELS AUSTRALIA

BY SAMUEL HODGE
FOR MARKMAGAZINE


Well I thought it was high time that I posted up some more images of Gold Coast
beauty and Beauty Hunter favourite Jordan Barrett. And a recent editorial that
really caught my eye is a rather tasty editorial for Markmagazine with
photography by Samuel Hodge. And could this be Jordan's first nudie shoot.
I cant remember seeing him wearing shall we say nothing at all.
It's nice to see that in some of his most recent images that he's grown back
those beautiful blonde hair locks.

Further down below are some more images of Jordan from some recent
editorials with images by Thom Kerr,Emily Abay and Pierre Toussant.

More recent images of Jordan can be found on his Statigram page below.

Tomonari Beauties!


Occasionally I check up on what's new at the pages of online Korean fashions
Tomonari. Fronted by it's regular models, it's good to see my favourite
Tomonari model Gil (above and below) still gracing the ever colourful
pages.
Also still there is that feline like beauty Jun. In fact they now have four
regular models, those being Gil, Jun, Hyunjae and Hanyoung, all very
popular ulzzangs in their own right.

A Spring Indoor Water Garden



Above is a fairly recent shot of the indoor water feature, something I built last summer. The last time I posted up pictures of it was just last Christmas when the whole thing was turned into a seasonal winter wonderland. But now I've put it all back to how it should be, an indoor water garden feature.
Of course with Spring upon us now there seems to be more plants now available in the shops so I do have a habit of changing it around occasionally.
And now there's even a geisha girl who seems to have taken up residency while keeping an eye on things.
Hopefully as Summer approaches I can add even more colour to it.
