Friday, January 9, 2009 Tired of Hollywood

Go to the Image Archive, to Hollywood there are more than a hundred pages of Hollywood photographs, thousands of shots. But sometimes you just get tired of Hollywood. After almost twenty years here, you want a change.

The faces of movie stars become oppressive, or threatening, like Will Smith here

And Jim Morrison, dead and buried in Paris long ago, is still here

And Marilyn Monroe is still everywhere, even if still dead

Sometimes you don't even know who these folks are

We sell odd dreams here

Technical Note:

These photographs were taken with a Nikon D200 the lenses used were AF-S Nikkor 18-70 mm 1:35-4.5G ED, or AF Nikkor 70-300 mm telephoto.  The high-resolution photography here was modified for web posting using Adobe Photoshop 7.0 software.
