Two Little Men by Ana Retamero Olmos of Spain was the winner of the Plants category – Picture: Ana Retamero Olmos/CATERS NEWS
From a very beautiful gallery at Telegraph on winners of the European Wildlife Photog of 2011, with various categories. Many were stunning – esp sleeping whales, for one… others were too macabre or sad to use, tho amazing.
I stopped at this one and laughed, as for diversion tonight I watched James Ellroy’s documentary on murder, Feast of Death, mostly his mother’s murder and the Black Dahlia. We are deep in Los Angeles noir film land, of course… and police procedure, the classic policier film, novel and non-fiction.
Along the way he digresses and tells a tale on Jack Kennedy that he got from an LA PI, former cop, who bugged the Lawford party house on the beach, to get the goods on Jack and Marilyn for Hoffa.
Said Jack was “hung like a cashew”. Ellroy is quite good with ribald slang (I noticed some reviewers at Netflix really were turned off by that… I cannot imagine what they expected ).
Kept me diverted this evening anyway…
