We have been (re)watching movies: Papillion, Rear Window, The Hours and Silkwood. All good films.
Big fan of Hitchcock's filmaking in particular. I think during July 4, I was channeling Alfred a but while taking pictures.The fireworks reminded me of To Catch A Thief and the cityscape had a flair of Rear Window .

Ivory Wars

Alex Shoumatoff and Guillaume Bonn just published an expose titled Agony and Ivory on the ivory trade and threat of extinction for Africa's elephants in Vanity Fair. Below you can watch the supplemental video to the reportage.
I met Guillaume a couple of years back when he lectured at The Half King in Chelsea. Guillaume Bonn might seem exotic or out of movie or a novel to some, but I think of him simply as someone speaking about his home.
