Whacky photo #8: ORBITAL JUNK

It was a ghost ship centuries old. Most hatches for the escape pods were open to vacuum. The ship made it to Earth completely empty.

Whacky photo #7: RACING

We started side by side, fast but not furious, both dangerous and suicidal. Living fast meant living short.

Whacky Photo #2: MY ANGEL

There is in Lisbon a large square called Duque de Saldanha, in honor of some duke we had. There’s a statue of the duke with an angel by his feet.

I don’t give a damn about the duke. I don’t even remember who he was or what he did. I just stare at the angel. This woman with wings. Oh, joy!

Wacky photo #1: BULLIT

photooftheday

Do you remember the car chase in the 1968 movie Bullit? It’s a landmark of movie history, as far as car chases are concerned. The movie has also immense artistic values. It’s excruciating realistic, to the point of using a real medical crew in a real hospital to depict the procedures during surgery. It won an Oscar for the editing, which is the most important aspect to the narrative and pace of any picture. The soundtrack is breathtaking. Finally, along with the realism, there’s style everywhere, featuring wonderful actors like Steve McQueen, Jaqueline Bisset, Robert Vaughn, Robert Duvall and Norman Fell, just to name a few.

So I took this photo a few years ago. The Ford Mustang being chased by the Dodge Challenger. But this pursuit has a twist in the movie…
