Chocks Away Old Boy!

I intended to post these weeks ago! Oops! This is definitely one of my favorite fashion editorials in ages [by the master of surrealist photography, Tim Walker]. His interpretation of a 40's/war theme is so bizarre... I like the way he imagines the collision of the airplane with the home -- as if he is pointing out that nowhere was safe from the ravages of the war. I am also intrigued at how he imagines the woman in the trenches...perhaps I am over-thinking it, but it is rather genius!

What is your take on it??
Have a fanciful weekend my friends!!

love it! i know i shouldn't laugh- but the plane cracks me up... the way it moves between the images....i wonder if it was heavy.
