Just Orlando

Welcome to a new thread called : Just Orlando

This is replacing the much loved Weekly Theme. Not entirely as we will do an animated weekly theme every once in a while.
And the old weekly's will remain here. So keep a weather eye :)



What are we going to do?

Every day, A picture of Orlando will be posted in this thread by your moderator; yours truly.
Random and yet deliberately chosen, familiar or rare images.
Only Orlando, Just Orlando, for us to enjoy!


We'd like you to comment on that picture:

What you think of it?
How does it make you feel?
Do you remember where you first saw this photo?
Is there a special story for you to this?
Reply with a picture from the same shoot or event?

Or if you do not know what to say: He looks guh!- will do just fine!


Enjoy everyone! And your moderator is always open to suggestions.

*and remember no hotlinking!

Ok....He looks guh! But he does!

So dark and brooding in this pic...I'm not sure if I have seen it before.


Great theme/thread idea, Tonny I will be looking forward to checking in to see what you come up with each day. I'm here if you need any help.

Thank you KAT!
This was one of the first images I found in magazines of him.
Look at all the veinage
I reckon there will be many more "GUH"'s to come!

Thank you for creating the gorgeous banner and we will make this work!

Looks so mean and moody!
I am really looking forward to this new adventure into Orlandos past- hee. I also wanted to take this opportunity to say a big THANK you to Tonny for the Weekly Theme which was brilliant, inventive and so so enthralling. Thanks again for your hard work creating that place to play.

And now- onward....

Yes, he looks p.o.ed in this picture and very young. What's the year? I don't think I've seen it before so thanks for posting! I think there's going to be a lot of photos in this thread that I've never seen before so thank you! Great idea Tonny!

I don't think I've seen this pic either... Very dark and brooding and would you just look at those cheekbones!

Another great idea for something new thank you for all your hard work in keeping us entertained, Tonny!

Umm...I think he looks....dangerous. His body looks as if he is tense; poised on the edge of action. It's a good look on him.

Lovely picture. Like the dark pieces of who he is are just on the edge but well controlled. For some reason his cheekbones really draw the eye, like he is holding lots of anger in.

I can't remember ever seeing this either. So thank you Tonny.

I guess I'm one of the few that have seen this picture before, but I believe the first time I saw it it was in black and white.

Anyways, I absolutely adore it! Photographs with very dramatic lighting have always appealed to me. He looks so young here too. And very sexy hehe.

I'm very excited for this thread. It's going to be fun!

Guh! indeed!!! Here's a slightly better version. Photographer is Anthony Spinoza, from 2001, I believe.

God Tonny, give a girl a warning will ya? Great idea!

There is so much I see in this picture. For all the coolness we see him demonstrate when he's hounded by the press, I've always wondered if behind that cool, calm and collected nature, if he's a volcano once he loses his temper.

Here to me I see two different things. His self control so he doesn't lose it and just sheer raw sexiness. The eyes are so expressive (though I've always felt that is one of his best features) and you can literally do a whole conversation with that look. His cheekbones are awesome - so sexy. And like Kat said, that veinage. Look at the hands. I can just imagine his hands around your - well wherever you want those hands to be.

Great way for the new year!

Tonny - thank you so much for your dedication and unflagging interest and love around here - you really make this place so very interesting with your threads.

I have been popping over daily to TTO for my Daily Dose of Vitamin O for years now, but am happy to do it here now too (seeing as it's all a bit quiet over there these days sadly) so am glad - I do like my daily special pic of the boy.

Sadly though - this does absolutely nothing for me at all - I would go so far as to say it is awful and I loathe it!! Not that what I think matters in the slightest and I'm glad everyone is guh-ing madly, but I'll wait for another day to guh if you don't mind (yes, there's always one isn't there - you can't please everyone all the time - you'll find that out again if those VMan shots turn up yet again *shudder* - am sure they will, everyone loves them so much!) Don't mind me, we all have our own preferences (plus he's way too young for me here too! I like 'em a bit more seasoned!)

Can't wait for this to take off as I know it will and be as successful as the weekly themes.

hugs
Luna
xx

It's truth,that he's very young in this pic,but Luna remember: this is the man under Legolas's wig....and we all drool over the elf,no matter how young he looks...must be the hairdo...you're a long-haired men's woman...
He was very slim in that time,and his cheekbones look amazing....though I love him more when he's displaying those gorgeous curls of his...

Good luck in this new path Tonny darling..

I totally get what you're on about Luna (was trying hard to come up with a comment on the pic that didn't feel too false). The VMan shoot is not my favourite either and this pic makes me feel the same way but saying it out loud would be speculating of course so will leave it at that. Can't help admiring the bone structure though...

I don't think that's speculating at all Gem, is just you non-guhing along with me is all. You either like it or you don't - and in this case we both pass, although Lola does raise a good point that this was the boy playing Leggy at the time and MAN I was pretty taken by the Elf - but then, you expect an Elf to be youthful and gorgeous with deadly cheekbones...so I can live with that contradiction in me!

Leaving room now for more guh-ing by those that DO appreciate these pics - and so they should too, even young he's still gorgeous.

GUH indeed!!! Young and hot! I have seen the b/w pic but the colored version is new to me too.
The black clothes with the black background makes him look dangerous!

Thanks for the new thread Tonny! Will be spending much drooltime here!

I get where you're coming from. I can understand why folks think the photo's from that shoot were sexy, but to me, it didn't rock my world at all.

I am already enjoying this tremendously!

Thank you so much girls for your input and comments. This is exactly what I had in mind when we thought of it!
And thank you all for your kind words, but really, there is nothing I love more than to post pictures of Orlando and I gladly endure the hardship of going through my files for hours and hours and hours on end.... *gg* Oh my torture!

Here's the one for today: (and be warned it's a killer!)






GUH.
