The Cold Moment – gay art male art by Michael Taggart Photography

The Cold Moment - Gay Art Male Art by Michael Taggart Photography

There is a moment – right before you have been left – right before you leave – when something better just might be. A breath of a happier moment. The smallest hope makes it that much colder.

It’s the circle of life – until – one day – you meet the right one – and there is no cold moment.


This is the first of the double picture we took with the idea of having Arty play two parts. I found myself getting a bit emotional when I made this. It got really cold, harsh and real for me.

But I finally found my “right one”.

In the New Year, I hope you all find your “right one” and have nothing but “Hot Moments”!

Tried some new things with the picture.I used an overlay layer with a color cast, and my crop is much closer than I usually go.

I also wanted to experiment with highlighting every single pore and even adding some grain to give the skin lots of texture.
