Some long months ago, maybe a year or more, I bought the photo above (not all my vintage photos are black and white!) and I liked it because of the mysterious angle and cut-off face and - well, of course because it's a sexy young man. And then, just last week I found and bought the one below... obviously the same guy, this time with his head intact. You have to wonder a little about who he was and who the photographer was, and why were these photos taken? But of course, we'll never know for sure.
As it happens, I think I still prefer the first picture, for it's mystery quality and making those lips more beautiful than ever they could be with a whole face attached.
