It's Got Legs

Posted by Bettina (Los Angeles, United States) on 22 September 2010 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

In Hollywood when a film has the kind of viewership that keeps on coming, like a film that might start slow, but for some reason continues to play as an steady audience favorite for a long time, they say that "it's got legs". This is my version. It's that or this is the ad for a new horror flick.
I've been "running around" too much myself, pounding the pavement, and will catch up later today.

Dana from Burbank, United States

Funny. Great light. I used to see legs like this dangling in the windows of Chinatown.

k@ from Paris, France

Oooh, wonderful image, Bettina ! What a light, a surreal mood, a great caption (i didn't know the expression) and the effet here is both spooky-stunning & sexy. All those ladies seem to 'walk above' (do you ? ;) I count 18 legs, that is 9 women totally free to kiss & fly - love that movie you offer here. Courage for the work, colleague, i'm totally with you (at work too ;)

22 Sep 2010 7:24am

@k@: They seem to be floating. I'm still working on my simple levitation technique. I'll make it to floating someday. :)) Courage for your work as well, comrade!
