catwalk 74

I’m off again, up to West Yorkshire for a couple of weeks. I might possibly post from there. Then again I might not. Here’s an image to wonder at in the meantime. It’s blown up from a picture that appeared in the Guardian a few days ago and it shows Philippe Petit walking across a highwire between the Twin Towers. This was a perilous enough escapade but 1974 may have made it even more so: he was wearing flares.

Really nice flares. One thing i also find curious is that he look extremely like SkyWalker (and he was a Sky Walker, 3 years before Stars Wars).
