Yeah, so I came across this photo of Richard Armitage as Chop in the (hopefully soon-to-be-released) Urban and The Shed Crew yesterday, and I’m sure most of the fandom has seen it and grasped the eye-pleasing overall composition, the emotional impact of the separation between mother, son and father-figure, and most especially, the Drool-Worthiness of that long frame leaning up against the wall. It’s one of my favorite images, ever. I wonder if this is a scene from the movie, or more of a promotional shot? Whichever it is, it has successfully upped my anticipation and revved my engines!
I’m sure if I was Frazer Kelly’s mom, my fawning attention would be drawn to how cute my son looked in his role as Urban in this photo, leaning back against Chop, hands in pockets and legs crossed in subconscious imitation of the father figure. It really is an evocative picture of the father-son dynamic, and Urban does tug at my maternal heartstrings.
However, being the PreoccupiedWithArmitage individual that I am, my eye is of course drawn again and again to the figure of Richard Armitage.
Who tugs at… other strings. By all that’s sexy… unnnghhh. I pretty much love everything about this pose. My eyes can’t stop wandering up and down that lean body, excitedly landing here, there, everywhere. We need a higher resolution image!!
But as amazing as the top half of Richard Armitage is in the photo… this is the part that makes me want to insert myself like a cat winding around those long, lean legs. I can’t decide if I’d rather be the wall, or the one leaning against his torso with a protective arm resting over my shoulders. Protectively possessive hand splayed across my… yeah.
Wow. Just when I think Richard Armitage can’t be any more sexy… this
crotch happens. Please don’t read this, Hubby.
