linkjoy: gangster photos and national topless day

I found this magnificent image as part of a photo essay on London East End gangsters.  Check out the full documentary, entitled The Firm, by Jocelyn Bain Hogg.  I just love everything about this image: the beautiful woman wrapped in stockings and fur, the poster on the wall, and the cat playing with a stiletto heel.

I also found out that this Saturday, August 23rd is National GoTopless Protest Day.  Events are apparently being held at select major cities (Boston not being one of them).  Interesting idea and activist theme.  I’d always envied guys’ being able to take their shirts off on a hot day, and wondered as a kid why that was the case.  And I think women’s breasts are a nice complement and contrast to the angles and hard lines of a guy’s chest.  I wonder if public breastfeeding, much less going topless, will ever become an accepted public image.
