If, as it seems, we're spilling over into photos - and supradondalissimas to CaroleBristol for setting up SpillSnaps ™ ( c'mon, that's just my little joke) at www.flickr.com/groups/spill and semidondasturias (that's a smaller Catalan wave to you, dude!) to goneforeign for pasteing up his 'Face The Camera' shot . . . then I really think you-all should cop on (it's Cork slang) to TheAutomaticEarth.
For many months now ilargi and stoneleigh have been ahead of the 'economy' game, and prefacing their stuff with the best photos of early 20th. century photo-reportage.
It was a dry wind
And it swept across the desert
And it curled into the circle of birth
And the dead sand
Falling on the children
The mothers and the fathers
And the automatic earth.
I think we have to separate the cuddly little Paul-on-stage, from the monster-slaying poet on the page.
Ilargi posted this a couple of days ago. It is Dorothea Lange's take on poverty in the US. She was part of a talented team sent out to 'take photos of the poor'. Ilargi posts these images, every day. Lest we forget that 'Economics' has a human face.
