Polyester News Gods

I don't know what I like most about the above photo - the once futuristic yet now antique video gear, that mid-seventies compact car or just the shooter's jaunty moustache. Either way, this old school news duo brings to mind a very special episode of Lou Grant - one in which a young Penn and Teller get their broadcast on ... Starsky and Hutch style. For the story surrounding the origin of this landmark shot, visit the latest dust-up in the photograblogosphere, Behind The News - courtesy of 'Widescreen' - a veteran news shooter way Down Under. After that, check your own photo album - then perhaps, your closet. Remember, the Members Only jacket you burn could be your own.
