What the…? I don’t even know

Ok, it started with an article from Cracked.com titled 14 Photographs That Shatter Your Image of Famous People.

I follow a lot of photography blogs and I see a lot of links like this.

So I took a look.

And in the course of those fourteen images, this one came along. (Click for a larger size)

I can’t stop looking at it. I don’t even know what to say. I seriously don’t know what to say.

It’s Al Pacino and Christopher Walken, but what the HELL is going on? Please tell me this is something from a movie?

My fascination with this image led me to the Awesome People Hanging Out Together Tumblr….which I guess is a pretty popular site because it was named to Time’s list of the 30 Must See Tumblrs.

None are quite as fascinating at this one, but there’s some pretty good stuff in there.

Meanwhile…I must construct stories in my head about the Pacino/Walken photo. Neighbors out for a stroll? Just escaped from the home for doddering elderly actors? LSD? LSD flashback?

I mean seriously? What?

    Before playing a piano concerto and after.

    Zombie Apocalypse.

    I spent quite a while trying to figure that one out.

    Maybe he was just trying to get some publicity because it has been a few slow years for them lately. You know, any publicity is good publicity. But you are right, that is a very strange picture.

    Happy Theme Thursday, thanks for sharing such a great picture.

    God bless.

    I am personally approaching the Walken stage, with Pachino just down the road a bit.
    Think of it as a PSA to hit the gym and the tailor regularly

      Emmett – I’m grateful that the beautiful and quite fashionable R.E.D. will make sure you never wear pants with a waistline up to the nipples.

  7. Chica,

    I’m amazed with the number of comments you got.

    I think that these are all the essence of bigotry. Judging someone you don’t know by his look.

    Moytoy was right. “Don’t judge a man ’till you’ve walked a mile in his shoes.”

    What if they were taking a walk in Beverly Hills and they saw a giddy tourist walking towards them with camera poised.

    As suspected, this is from a movie shoot.
