The "Brit a Day" series

What does a months-long parade of attractive British men have to do with fiction, you might well ask? These gentlemen have inspired some lovely scenes, part of the life I live in my head. Over time, some of these scenes reach out to one another and begin to form a story. For the present, each one of these pictures provides a writing prompt for me, a way to keep me writing with a sense of passion and narrative, even when the stories are not yet fully formed.

A Brit a Day [#571]

The photo editor may have been targeting the cigarette for excision, but smoking was no big secret back in the day--unless, I suppose, you were making a TV show for kids.  Setting a bad example for fans, but otherwise a brilliant photo of David Jones from the 1960's.
