Web Wrap

Well been busy and been sick, and more busy catching up and then sick again. Thought I’d do something different this time as I have not been taking pics to post some great ones I’ve seen on the news wires lately, enjoy!

obama-thoughtsOh bummer – Three weeks on the job and looking tired, this great AP pic shows how much the stress on that job is. Still no big recovery bill passed, his buddies not nominated for tax problems, sure not what he thought it was going to be like riding off on his white horse into the sunset waving his magic wand of “change”. My bet is he’ll be gray haired before years out.

FRANCE BUGATTI AUCTIONRoad plow – This 1937 Bugatti Type 57S Atalante Coupe, ever seen a front like that? I’ve taken pics at old car shows before including a 1939 Tata with three headlights, but this one man! Was one of the fastest cars in the world at the time but looks like it has a snow plow in front that is not the standard for speed aerodynamic, but i guess it worked, wonder what the mileage was. I’d love to have been there in those days and see all these innovative ideas sprawling the roads, today mass produced cars are all same-ish, and no radical new ideas or looks.

APTOPIX Britain SupercarOK, a wide angle Fisheye lens makes it even wider, but fascinating! Other great pics from AP can be seen here.

Senate Saints? – It seems that new thing for press photog to take pics up-angle of Senators delivering speeches and press briefings under the dome of Capital Hill. Poor Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, has to deliver bad news, but this is not the angle for him, he looks like a Dr. Seuss character already and the press takes pics of him with a “halo”? Is the country in such bad shape they have to keep peoples moral high with subliminal hints like this that they are elevated above us?

Cheeky butt– A Celebes Crested Macaque, how can we be realted?
