On this day in 1939, "Gone With the Wind," produced by David O. Selznick based on the novel by Margaret Mitchell, premiered at Loew's Grand Theater in Atlanta. The movie starred Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable.


Caught in a 'Big Brother' moment. This roving camera took a great interest in my activities recently during a stint of street photography. So, pretending to be unaware of the camera, I put on an appropriate performance for the viewer. However, it mustn't have been convincing as nobody came to enquire as to what I might be up to in this secluded and obviously guarded space.
Companion piece to the earlier post on Thomas Street.

An interesting combination of surfaces, the barred windows and  CCTV camera, hostile and very much a sign of our times.
