An anatomy lesson

Unusual cropping can add to an abstract effect and so can tatoos and very large muscles. On the left you know you are looking at a chest but it's not usual to see such definition in pectoralis major and latissimus dorsi.

The pecs are the front muscles of the upper chest and if you cant see them on this photo then you never will. the lats are the muscles that lift you up if you were climbing rocks. They are the same muscles that pull you through the water especially if you were doing the butterfly stroke. So they are more obvious in swimmers (partly because you can see their muscles) and they are the muscles at the side that give the V shape from the waist to the shoulder. In this photo they fill the gap at the side between abdomen and arm. On the right Andy is pointing to biceps. I think you know where you find this muscle.

Happy snapping
