I'm reminded of Columbo ;)
“You take our friend here, the murderer. He’s very smart, but he’s an amateur. I mean, he’s got just one time to learn. Just one. And with us cops, well – it’s a business. We do this a hundred times a year. I’ll tell ya, doc, that’s a lot of practice.”

It's never my intention to poke fun at amateurs.

It was not at all my intention suggest or insinuate anything of the kind.

^good on ya, Karl.

e: I know you don't post often in this thread, but when you do it's always with a minimum of fuss and cliche. As a result the photos are invariably interesting enough to stop me scrolling.
Anyway, that shot is cool - the open windows here and there along with the overall subtle keystoning makes it look like a kind of architectural sprezzatura. Good stuff.

Hello from Boston.

The contrast between the old iron streetlights and sleek modern building is probably very Bostonian.
I see a figure in the lower left holding two torches of freedom.

Very nice! Damn shame that the Szarkowski (MoMA) book on his work is out of print.

Very nice indeed. That would be of interest to me. Thank you for posting.

A front door to a family winery in Forst (Pfalz) Germany. Looks like a fairy tale setting...or, if you have a darker mindset, a Hammer Horror location.

Mahler, you ought to go see it.
he was as f*cked-up as you are."
