"To The Moon... "

Spotting this couple looking for directions in Chelsea
reminded me of "The Honeymooners"
that some of you may remember, with Ralph Kramden's famous quote:
"One of these days Alice, straight to the moon!!!"

Un couple de touristes perdu dans Chelsea,
m'a rappelée un feuilleton comique Americain des annees 50
ou le mari, qui n'aurait pas fait de mal a une mouche,
revait a chaque episode, de se debarasser de sa femme
en l'envoyant d'un coup de poing sur la lune!!!

connais pas cette vieille sitcom, cela n'a pas du venir jusqu'a chez nous.
Ah chelsea, j'adore ce quartier, un musée pop art a ciel ouvert.

What made you think of Ralph Kramden? The fist? Remember, he also ended every episode with a variation, of "Alice, you're the best."

Je ensais que c'était plutôt à coup de pied dans le derrière !
J'aime bien ce B&W.

J'aime vraiment beaucoup la façon dont tu as construit cette image.

Guide books are so wonderful ...

I'm intrigued by the small image of the couple on the box on the sign post. There is really a lot going on in this photo!

One way - revolution!

Bravo pour ce joli coup d'oeil !

(dans ce cas précis le monsieur n'a pas l'air prêt à envoyer sa chérie dans la lune d'un coup de poing, il compte sur elle pour retrouver le bon chemin)

Even before I saw the picture I knew the reference. I suppose a tv character couldn't say something like that anymore, even though you knew he adored Alice and couldn't have lived without her. Great shot too.
