bocage, the shoe company, always does great print ads. this one is no exception. totally politically incorrect it would never appear in the usa (propagating racial stereotypes - native americans as bloodthirsty savages). what i like is that at first glance it looks like the squaw has taken the woman prisoner to steal her boots but... on closer inspection you see that not only has she stolen her boots but has in fact skinned her and is wearing said skin as a tunic. a totally gratuitous detail that pushes this into the sublime for me.

some people say...

...that french landscape artists are control freaks but for the life of me i don't know why they say that. sometimes nature just needs to be kept in line.

clouds rolling in

september in paris, like march and april, is a time of impetuous weather. sun, clouds, rain, wind... it's hard to imagine what's coming next.
