Too Much Trivia, Too Little Elephant

4 May, 2010

a Curious page from Limmroth’s Photo-Schule, a humorous German photography handbook from 1959.

Notice anything incongruous in these pictures?  Yes, there happens to be a Nude next to the Elephant’s Trunk.  This photo is a ‘Don’t’: ‘zuviel Nevensächlichkeiten, zu wenig Elefant’ (too much triviality, too little elephant)  Well said.

    Perhaps she’s hoping for a shower from its trunk?

    A very good suggestion!
