What Classic Pin-Up Are You?

This is cracking me up because I have a few pieces of Brigitte memorabilia in the hut on permanent display! One of my prized possessions is a book from 1957 titled “and GOD Created Woman” by Raymond Boyer. This book has hundreds of B/W pictures from the movie by the same name and other shots from BB’s early career.

I found it in a used book store a long time ago when I was in a PhotoBook collecting mode. I knew nothing about Bardot but as they say, the pictures just spoke to me.

She has *It*.

I don’t have *It*. Most folks don’t have *It*. Every once in awhile, someone comes along who just has a love affair with the camera and we can’t seem to get enough! VOILA! The Pin-up!

AND, this door swings both ways. A woman I worked with had one of the best Male Pin-up Galleries, incognito, at work, that I’ve ever seen. There was a partial drop ceiling in her office that created a tiny little *wall* between her desk and her door at ceiling level. Here she hung her favorite GQ covers of her fancied HOLLYwooD mEN. It was months before I noticed it – you had to be sitting at or very near her desk and glance up to be Rewarded…

Yes, girls look too…

…I accidentally wiped out the comments to this entry – my apologies to all who posted!
