goodbye beard


goodbye beard, originally uploaded by hep.

yuriy shaved his beard off before we left for the lake so he would tan evenly as we have his youngest sister's wedding this summer and she would definitely hold him down and shave him/apply self tanner should he show up not clean faced.



i have to say, i will miss the beard and long hair. it was like he was a lion :3

The beard does suit him. Oddly, he looks a lot older without the beard.
thats only cuz the top one is mad overexposed since i was testing a flash, and the bottom one is under exposed because he only let me take one picture. really he looks a lot more like, authoritative with the beard, and a lot more like some sort of skaterat without it.
Also, eyes open vs. eyes closed (or looking forward vs. looking down) cause their own set of problems, as pics 1 and 2 demonstrate
yeah, that was 100% my impression, which was unexpected. hep's explanation makes sense though.
