This photo from Tsunaminotes appeared in Ende’s photo stream and reminded me instantly of all the cool things I’d never done because I was born too late and cool stuff is what I saw in black and white photos from years past. Of course, Flickr says the photo was taken July 5th, and the photographers of the past would have burned the bright spot on his cheek during printing, but it still has a classic quality to it.
Anyway, the photo is titled “Two things a man should be able to do: be romantic and smoke his brains out,” and, as it turns out, the line comes from Romance & Cigarettes, a recent film by John Turturro. How’d I miss this? I don’t know, but it’s in my queue now.
