linguirony

       
 here's something i just realised and found ironic and pretty funny.

           à la Mode: tendance, french. fashionable, in fashion
                           Modest: free from vanity, egotism, ostentation or showy  extravagance

                        ah, semantics.

Semantics are so weird.
Thanks for the link in the next article: Irvin Penn is one of the most talented photographers I've ever seen.
Do you know Martin Parr, Jeanloup Sieff ? You may like them.
