Like many jobs, being a photographer involves some drudgery, some days more than others. Then, along comes the assignment that makes shooting all the press conferences and yakking politicians worthwhile. Last week it involved the Tournament of Tease, the capstone performance and competition of the annual Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend. The performances ranged from sexy to sublime to silly, such as Mr. Gorgeous and his ice cream cone routine, which won him the Best Boylesque title.
