Yassou Constantinos!

Well you pushed me for this one. As I am a shy boy , and do not want to end up in a XXX web page ( Lol!) , I censored a bit this photo.

As most of the photographers, I am very rarely in front of the camera.(: _^) Martine took this one while I enjoyed some time at the pool on our last day. Later at 16:00 hrs we were leaving the resort :(.

Note I will be away from home until Friday June 9th. I have to go to Saguenay City. Two ships back to back and a golf tournament! I might have some new stuff for you guys!

In the meantime . Enjoy your weekend!

I might bring a few photos with me ( for sharing) . I will probably have some time to work with my Office labtop down there at times....

Technically . Nothing much here . Cropping , Auto levels, contrasts, colors. I am pretty lightly tanned here under the sun (*_^).Added frame and Title with Photofiltre

What most ..
you look alike one of "Right said Fred" (group) boy, i mean it, really. The face, and maybye,smile in this foto.
i like this foto, very relaxing and have a joyfull weekending mood.Excellent!

Hi Robert,
My my! Someone looks very relaxed, tanned and happy!!! Great photo Martine! Wonderful skin tones, composition and clarity! TFS,

PS...now I have a pin-up for my wall!!!

Well, now I can see why Martine married you.
You look nice and relaxed on your floating bed. Well done to Martine for this lovely shot, and to you a fine job on the cropping and text.

Heheh... What can be cloned out can sure be cloned in!...lol..! About time we get to see you too!

After looking at your photo, who wouldn't be sad leaving such a beautiful place. I mean, what a tan!!! Such beautiful blue color tones & cool colours.

Well done Martine on the composition!
ps. OK.. well done to you too Rob.. :)
pps. I wonder what John Tulip will say on this.. :)))

To Robert and Constantinous/Swim challenge!
Your photo was an answer to the Challenge Constantinous did, and I second him (to teasse)
You showed courage and I had to print this photo for Yolanda .. she sticked on to the frigidair and every time I like to open it to get a bite; she says: First look to Robert, I want you to be like him! (yes your used now as an example) ^_^ Compliment , you look good and so is your photo!

We have to pay a penalty for teasing Robert , so I add a photo of me in the WS and chalenge you to do the same !!! Hellen, make sure he does!! Thanks!
If you dont: No Mythos beer for a year!
Bye my friends and again Robert, compliment
(3 from Yolanda)

LOL, JohnTulip forwarded me this one on my home e-mail... what a hottie you are, Robert! Love you Canadians (and Dutch) with the Speedos, LOL! Love the pic of John in his bathing suit, now just waiting for one of Constantinos too!

Thanks for sharing, you look incredibly relaxed and tanned!


It looks like John send this link all over the world. You might get more fan mail than you bargained on now. Impressive photo . The tan really appeals to me seeing we are dead set in winter now and becoming more and more washed out. Great idea and the two of you are very brave with good results.

LOL! Nice pose Robert!

Excellent exposure, so hot! I like your smile and the greek title! :)

Nice colours Robert...LOL...
Cheers Dawn.
p.s. if only you had of croppd it differently..lol

My God , where am I here? Is this TL ?

Not laughed in a long time about a photo and what all wrote about it!
Compliment to all for humour and sharp intelligent note's
Mye wife wants to join TL too now:-) (I try to stop her ) So Robert, great idea and Dutch courage for both you and John! To John .. mm not bad for a 49 year old man and numerous months (wink)
So Costas, we are waiting for you to 'plonge in ' !! and make sure its not an old photo! LOL LOL
Take care all and thanks for one of the funniest things I have seen here in TL

Salut Robert,

Avec le tan que tu as on voit que les vacances se sont très bien passez et que vous en avez bien profitez. Très belle photo et composition. Les couleurs sont superbes.

à bientôt.


Oh oh! What a man you are Rob. Let your lovely wife keeps a close eye on you, you have that special look in your eyes! :-) Compliment for 'Martine' !
Bye bye
After seeing this a day later I have to say that it was so long since I had so much fun.John and Costas
being this funny and Robert unaware of all this on vacation, lol lol . Great replies from Dawn ,Gayle and all others, TL on its best LOL!
So Costas the answer is yours ha ha :-)

I am sure that Constantinos will be amazed, when he returns from his business trip to Albania, to see what great shape your in and what a suntan you have! Nice shot, it shows how haapy you are and reelaxed.

P.S. After I saw the WS with the Dutch, hunk of a man, I really don't know if Constantinos will have a chance in the swimming suit contest!LOL!!!

YOu guys!!
I'm sure having sooooo much fun with all those REALLY fine gentlemen in swimsuits ;)

Great image Robert, Nice relaxing moments. Lovely blue tones and marvellous tan ;)

YOu too John! Really great! And we sure wait for Constantinos :D

Take care all, Stef :))

ps 2006-06-09: This keeps getting better and better :D
Nice one Constantinos! You indeed kept the theme going ;)

Ciao Gyus! Have a great WE (sunny one!) Stef :))

Well, Robert, what has John done with your posting? Surprise! Seems you're in the center of an excited and giggling crowd of girls of all ages! 190 views, as I read this...

As if this one didn't make me blush enough, I made the mistake of opening the workshop, and immediately thought, "dear God, JohnTulip is naked!" I almost passed out until I saw the suit lurking in the shadows. ;) Whew.

It's so kind of the two of you to "share" with us girls. I think I will go lie down now to allow my poor heart to recover from that adrenalin rush.... ;)

lol - have a great day!
Gayle :)

Update 6/9/06:
ALLLL RIIIGHT, Constantinos! Way to be! Glad to see that there are some men left who wear "proper" suits. ;) (whoop whoop, clap clap, whistle - let's hear it for all our brave men!!!!) But wait.....someone's missing??? Rob??? I thought you were invited! Where is Rob?!!! WE WANT ROB, WE WANT ROB, WE WANT ROB!!! (the din is getting deafening in here...)

Dobar dan, Robert!
LOL...I am not sure which one I prefer, this one or the one in the workshop;D
thanx for the fun, guys!!
Update: ahahah...way to go, Constantinos!! show them some pure medditeranean landscapes;D
I'm with Gayle: WE WANT ROB, WE WANT ROB!!
P.S. I can't wait for the TL BOOK to be published!! :D

It looks like I got here at the closing of bathing suit event. :) Not sure who the winner is but it definitely put a smile on my face ... Thanks!

Hi Robert,

Beautiful visual, swimming pool boy and very tan.
this sells that when I tell you that here down
it is constant sun, in the middle of winter ours, you can
to enjoy of a beautiful suntan. I adored the colors here
beautiful shine and beauty in them.
Congratulations for the deserved rest.


* I adored to see our friends' pictures in workshop
beautiful boys propagandas of swimsuits.

Robert, You have bigger Ba**s than I do. Not literally maybe but figuratively. heheh.
I wouldn't post a shot of myself in a speedo for a million dollars! I respect your courage! Martine knows how to use that camera too. I am not making fun of you, just expressing my self-insecurities! I am happy you had a good time in Cuba, also glad you had a safe trip to a communist country!

***Whistle!!! Wowwweeeee you are quite the looker Robert!! So nice to see some "eye candy" for the ladies on this site! Very nice shot, Martine! Tell her thank you! B-)

Hi Robert.

This is great portrait.
Gentle smile, relaxed and tan floading in turquise swimming pool.
Amazing piece of memory.
