A high point of my european vacation this month was the visit at the Musée Chagall in Nice.







Amazing swirls of colours, movements, figures. Chagall's imagination and genius knew no bounds.

Been doing some newspaper research and chanced on this (I think) very funny cartoon from the twenties:

I like Conor71's "I  like old Music" signature.

A photo I like only because I enjoy a mystery.



Sometimes when you go to buy an old lens the guy selling it insists you also buy the camera it's currently attached to. And when that happens, once in a blue moon I find an exposed roll of film still in it. Usually I develop it and stick it with a contact sheet into an envelope and mail it to whoever I bought the lens from. This is one of the few surving frames from a roll I was developing today as a demo for a new friend.
Excuse the quality, it's not a scan.


tl;dr found in an old camera.

There will never be another era like the Golden Age of Hollywood.  We didn't know how to blow up buildings then so we had no choice but to tell great stories with great characters.-Ben Mankiewicz

I would like one of those.



Yeah, Elsa Martinelli ;D But I'm really talking about the Vespa. :) Anyone owned one?
I think it needs a warm climate and many sunny days for maximum enjoyment.
