Give a man a fire and he is warm for a day. Set a man on fire and he is warm for life.

I’m absolutely in love with the art of Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot and of his works, I particular like this one a lot:

Two approaches by Avedon. The first is Brooke Shields. I love that shadow on the (camera) right side of her face - graduated tonality and all that - but it's flattering to the point of not needing fill to get rid of the potential double chin. He just carries it on under. What a pretty girl. I had an ex I'd often light that way.
On the minus side, I don't like the crop. And speaking of crops -



- if that wasn't originally 6x6 I'll eat my hat. Anyway, the real Rocky. Or more exactly, the real Rocky and Suzie Q, his punishing right hand. His record: fights - 49, Wins - 49, Wins by KO - 43, Losses - 0
That's one of only two photographs I have on my wall that were taken by other photographers, with the second being an Anton Bruehl shot of Louis Armstrong.
You overestimate my power of attraction," he told her. "No, I don't," she replied sharply, "and neither do you".

Great painting - I agree.

Heh. That's really well done. Perhaps a little too well done...
