I’ve spent the day scanning old negatives for an particular project I’m working on and I came across some images of this. Do I know what it is? Oh yes. Do you know what it is? Let’s see. Is this a fake? Oh no its the real deal. Shot in 1982 when the world was a different place. Was it a better time or not? I don’t know. Was it more dangerous. I can’t tell. Was this type of import more prevelant or more insidous? I don’t know. Was it mine. No. I just happened to be somewhere were I saw it and was allowed to photograph it. Have I seen one since? No not for ages and ages and thank goodness for that. Is it still going on? You bet baby.
This is Osama’s gift to the west. We give them death and destruction and they give us the same thing back just wrapped up pretty and sprayed with gold paint.
