Photography Friday: Heading out on the road...
Photographed by Peter Lindbergh for a spread entitled "Lost Highway", it's meant to convey the wide open American road. But in looking at them, I couldn't help but think of the Great Gatsby (well aside from the first one below, that one is just straight Out of Africa for me - is it weird that both of these references ended up being Robert Redford movies?). Not so much the splashy champagne parties and Daisy intrigue that it's usually associated with the story, but rather the side tragedy of Myrtle and George Wilson - almost showing what if Myrtle and George were a happier combination. I think it's the dusty feel and the garage and cars, and the phone booth, but I can't seem to get that part of the story out of my mind when I look at these.
Now, time to make some fall weekend plans for Saturday before it's time to pack up for next week!
