WW - Simply Addicted to Ferraris
Every year we attend Tutto Italiano held at the Lars Anderson Auto Museum in Brookline, MA. It is an Italian automobile and motorcycle show which features exotic and not-so-exotic makes such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Ducati and Moto Guzzi.
This year, the Ferrari crew had a set of models for guys to ogle and photograph. I tried to take this opportunity to practice some model photography, but the whole scene made me gag. Maybe it was because all the guys were shamelessly drooling over them, or maybe these models made me feel decidedly un-hot. The way they posed reminded me of the zombie models in the old Robert Palmer music videos for Addicted to Love and Simply Irresistible. Here are the rest of the Ferrari babes.
Doug showed his motorcycle and posed for me as Ducati poster boy. Hmm, not quite the same effect.
Our kids have been over-saturated with Tutto Italianos and had no interest in looking at any of the cars or even posing for photographs. But the wall is simply irresistible to jumping.
I guess I'd rather have jumpers than zombie models any day.
