    Bloviated old fart! God, what a great phrase. I am always on the look out for cool words.

    Okay. Now a question, why is the photgrapher's name important? Can't the image be looked at as an image alone?

    I liked the idea of this thread. It is a great image and not knowing the author made it better because there was no baggage at all attached to it.
    Technological society has succeeded in multiplying the opportunities for pleasure, but it has great difficulty in generating joy. Pope Paul VI

    So, I think the "greats" were true to their visions, once their visions no longer sucked. Ralph Barker 12/2004

    Despite Tim's attempts to throw us off with the erroneous date - it is clear that this is a picture of a couple of his fellow al-Quedda operatives who are attempting to "blend in" to the local popluace by wearing current fashions.

    As anyone in NYC who rides the subways will tell you - the first thing we need to do is check their "backpacks" for explosives.

    So wrong! It's Doyle and Russo. You must remember the early scenes in the original French Connection. By the way Hackman's drunken scene in the cell in French Connection II as he is drinking brandy to help his cold turkeying from Heroin is one of the best drunks I have ever seen.

    BobF Thanks. I did what every Ned Ludd should do in that situation. I shut down Windows and re-booted and everything is fine.

    I thought Michael's thumbnail of NightHawks was even more painterly and 40s/50s ish.

    The best painter today reproducing this feel of people in a vaguely late 1940s/1950s look is Jack Vettriano. If you like this look I am sure you'll like his paintings.
