#Photography for the Beautiful 7/9

Hamburg, Germany

Protesters dressed like zombies demonstrate prior to the G20 summit. In a two-hour show, hundreds of actors took part in a public appeal for more humanity.

Although technically a violation since the photograph portrays a protest, this was not violent and it was an appeal for humanity.  It may remind you of "How I Won the War" with John Lennon.

Some may say this is not a beautiful photograph but anything which may lead to a real normalization of the relationship the Rockhouse submits is radiantly beautiful.

How about a pitbull when some Teeny Weenie didn't train her to be vicious.

The pack???  Even a boorish lout such as myself knows that's the peleton.  Ha.

Haute couture is not the exclusive province of the rich since we can appreciate it even when we can't afford it.  In this as with Chanel some days ago, there are more traditional designs than the many we have seen which have no life beyond one-off photo ops.  We also dig the paper sculptures of the animals for a novel contrast.

In "Flashdance," our heroine was well-versed in high culture but she worked in a steel mill.
