I love this photo! but of course, I do not love the quality of it, it’s a bit blurry. Here’s why. As some of you may know, one source I constantly scan for “finds” is eBay – but most sellers don’t use a scanner, but a digital camera – probably a phone, and therefore many pics are slightly distorted (not flat) or fuzzy and out of focus. Recently, someone posted a whole bunch of Target and Colt photosets – with varying quality. BUT…. I downloaded them, as they are a good resource, a reference for me when I get to see 6 or 8 photos in their original set that Jon Target or Jim French was selling decades ago.
The seller might have the correct identification of a model, or I recognize him, or I take a look over at the TARGET STUDIOS page at Gay Erotic Archives (not to be confused with Gay Erotic Video Index) and do some comparisons…. There I learned that Dino has also been paired with Joe in “The Hayloft” photoset, and with Bob Fielding and Chuck in the “RAUNCH” photoset; and he appeared in Target’s JAVELIN #1 – all in 1975. But of course, that page isn’t all inclusive (but it is all awesome as a resource!) and then I take a look at Gay Erotic Video Index to see if someone has done any film work – and alas – Dino has! – possibly just this one appearance in a short called Screen Test, which may never have made it to VHS or DVD. And, interestingly, it’s a short with someone named “Rusty” – and THAT name is nowhere to be found on the Gay Erotic Archives page.
…. ahhhh, I’m exhausted!
