And They Ate Him, Bones and All.



Is it me, or is there just something wrong about this photo? It's the kind of image that belongs in a fairy tale, where little children stumble across a house in the dark, dark woods, and think that the light equals safety, but really, whoever enters the house is just going to be put into a pot and eaten.




(Photo explanation: Australia's Prime Minister John Howard and his wife Janette Howard wait for the arrival of U.S. President George W. Bush at the entrance to Kirribilli House in Sydney Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2007.)

His wife looks like she belongs in a twisted story written by Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman, where suddenly her head just mushrooms into some sort of frightening netherworld beast of a head.

It is extremely creepy, yes.

Hey matey! All I can say is kudos to a photogorapher who knew exactly what they were doing. Everything from the perspective to the moment to the management of light. Yep - this is fairy tale before the Grimm brothers. Would YOU accept gingerbread from this couple?

Love it.
