Where'd you find that colour photo? It makes my eyes burn.

Ariel Gordon said...

I confess, I confess... I grabbed it from Nightwood's site.

Now, what does 'makes my eyes burn' mean?

GM said...

It means I look way better in black and white. I should have been born before colour was invented by the French in 1939.
