Hot Morris Art! Folsom kinky art reception! Friday, September 27th from 5 – 8 pm. At the Center for Sex and Culture at 1349 Mission Street in San Francisco. Drop in early before the evening’s other activities.
Morris Taylor’s exhibit, Sexual Energy and Power features twenty-five watercolors. Through realism and abstract styles the painter calls attention to outward manifestations of the inner sexual drive. Dominance and submission is a thread that unifies the subject matter.
The strokes are designed to draw the viewer to the unique beauty and ageless nature of the human body. Dark and light forces lurk inside the psyche that needs overt expressions of dignity and safety
About Morris: During the past fifteen years Morris Taylor has had 15 one-person shows at venues such as Grace Cathedral, Magnet in the Castro, Club Eros Gallery, and the Citadel. As Master Morris, he participates fully in the leather scene frequently giving workshops and demonstrations. He currently holds the title, International Master 2013.

Decorative and informative, this fine ursine railman invited us up into his hot greasy steam engine for a tour. Old #45 on the Skunk Train route. Please note that showing face on Gay Highwaymen doesn’t mean these guys are gay. It means we are. Ok? Thanks, Man!
Old number 15 looking at old number 45. And vice-versa. Mystics and quantum mechanics Noh: the eye with which I view God (or the multiverses) is the same eye with which the Universe (or the gods) view me. Whistle starts the races. All part of the Kinetic Carnivale. Willis, in Mendocino County, California.
U.S.S. Yellow Submarine. Handcar races. All human-powered rail transport. Some are funky. Others are fast.
Do they call this a glory-hole? They do with glass kilns. This is the vent in the coal-bin on Engine 45. Water and oil to the rear.
Apple Jack handcar and 4-man crew. Handcar races. Best hauler. Not the fastest – but rugged and strong and quick enough to travel and pull what you need!
Sun Leather. Custom boots, hats, belts, etc. Artisan at work.
Finished product. Hand-made boot.
Poplock Holmes. Chap-hopper and Steampunk entertainer extrordinaire.
19th century metal stamp press. 21st century operator.
Cute boys playing with their balls.
Better a century-plus ago than never…
The Train Singer…

Not what we might usually think of when yellow hanky and recycle both are tags for a post! Sight seen by pal of this site C. Jacob Hale in the tiny town of Murphy’s, California. Tucked up in the Sierras, it’s where to go when you need a urinal. Which, as it turns out, we really do. Those who knew infamous gay archivist Willie Walker may know why. Mike? Others may speculate. Selavy. C’est la Guerre. Tout le Monde manges Pommes de Terre.
