What we see

These are the photos of men in the early 30^s, posing for someone trying to look fine, but it is impossible to hide all of you or to show all of you in one image, so we only get a vague idea of how they were, and we figure out the rest, for example it seems to me that the man in the first portrait was a serious gentleman and the second seems to be very shy , and the third one very proud of his body, but anyway , see these pictures made me think that may be one day some one its going to see a portrait of us in which we made a big effort to look fine , and they will see very little of us and then they will start as I am now , to figure out the rest. That's why you can not really trust in what you see in a portrait.
