Sarah Michelle Gellar


Oooh, artistic.  This is one of my recent favorites.  Couldn't bring myself to crop it at all.  I like how it's almost a black and white photo, except for the cones.  And the tiny flash of red on the rear view mirror.

And Ms. Gellar's toenails, which I discovered were painted red when I zoomed in.

Just so you know, I was actually zooming in to try to decipher any details on that scrap of paper on the sidewalk.  It's hard to make out, but I think it's a sheet from a phone message pad that says "Steve--the Museum of Modern Art returned your call, said No Thanks."

Dang.

  1. Very nice. I hate to be so grim, but 70 years from now when people look for rare yet beautiful photos of Sarah Michelle Gellar this photo will be popular. Maybe, if humans still have eyes that far in the future.

    1. Yeah, it's hard to imagine what bizarre forms of life might have evolved 70 years from now. It was only in 1896 that the meteorite wiped out the dinosaurs and led to the rise of mammals.

      Will digital images ever be "rare," I wonder?

  2. Very chivalrous of the gum to let her have the spotlight all to herself.

    1. The gum does a lot of vicarious living.

    1. You can't have "hitchcockian," without "hitch."

      See what I did there?

    2. Aram Hitchcockian was a little-known Armenian photographer known for taking black and white photos of Armenian celebrities in the 1930's. He is thought to have studied under Ansel Adams.
