I feel a little dizzy now, looking back what I have to offer you this week. These are “funny” pictures, lots of portraits. A woman died after a violent blow to the stomach from a stoup, and now “civil” society is reacting. What joy. A wheezing old crooner, an ex-lover, a excellent photographer passed away, so it goes... And two pictures, one of a microscopic monster, and three images of a car blown to bits carrying a Hamas leader in Gaza. Are these images or photographs? I’m not quite sure and, to tell the truth, it’s not important. The Israeli army is distributing its own images—thank you, IDF—of propaganda, intimidation... Without shame or scruple, the papers are publishing these documents delivered to them like a video game. To be continued. As for my water bear, this strange creature, discreet and loving, I adopted it—what could be better?
