just thinking about photographs from before affection and physical contact between men became heavily socially stigmatized

@EdgarAllanFoe well it's kinda like what you find in Tolkien's work regarding his male characters and their friendships...it's so beautiful :blobcoffeeraccoon:

@EdgarAllanFoe really like the two sailors. Good energy in that one.

@EdgarAllanFoe Imagine comfortably embracing like that for as long as you have to to get that dang old timey photo to come out perfect

@Shufei I think they're perfectly lovely

when I'm in a particular mood they're likely to bring a tear to my eye

@EdgarAllanFoe I had this tintype taken of me with three dear friends of mine four years ago and it’s one of my favorite things
