Warren Ellis received several of photos like this from a friend—the man has amazing friends!—and you can see them on this page. (Ignore yucky blog title, I think he’s trying to channel George Carlin and doesn’t need to. Or, what the hell, maybe he likes yucky. I was about to say, It’s a free country, but that’s a discussion for another day.) (Makes it a little harder for me to wax poetic about that which these photographs bestir.) [...]
