Once upon a time

It is all very simple really. Instead of being stranded in Annexia, I should be living in a Slim Aarons photo.

As a chronicler of the good life, as lived by the upper classes and aristocracy in the 1950's, 60's and 70's, Slim Aarons has no peer. Born in New Hampshire in the early years of the century, he was a classic outsider looking in, and as such he idealized the rich.

You know, Flea, I really liked the Annex.

That life in the photos seems like some of those rather cheesy early colour films from the fifties...
