You'll shoot your eye out, kid @ 06:44 pm

Smithsonian magazine's Indelible Images feature always has a nifty photograph to discuss. This month, it's like a blast from my past... a towheaded kid in plaid pants on a Big Wheel in a housing tract in the Bay Area in the early 70's. I'd like to think my face looked less murderous than this kid's, but that's really what makes this photo. It's like the ghost of the Wild West. Beautiful.

The issue also has a nice feature on the photographs of tattoos by Chris Rainier. Among them, this great shot of the mistress of a yakuza boss:

Also, King George V had a dragon tattooed on him in Japan when he was a mere midshipman (albeit a ducal midshipman) on the H.M.S. Baccante in the 1880s.
