Goodbye Walla Walla - Walla Walla N6180e
This is literally the last picture in my memory card for our trip to Walla Walla last month. This is not a good picture. However I would like to dedicate it to our wonderful group leader Eric who has made the best out of our trip although the weather was not co-operating and a lot of planned shooting was cancelled. Eric has been helping us in getting new subjects of interest and providing us shooting tips. We saw these wind turbines on our way back to Vancouver. The stormy clouds were already marching in. I wanted to get close to them for a better composition. My friends had finished shooting and were waiting in the car. I had to go. Here is the composition I was not happy with. As soon as I got into the car, rain came right away. Goodbye Walla Walla!
I'm not sure if I'm really going to be able to do it, but the idea behind taking this was that I have photographic record of the 3000+ hockey cards I meticulously collected 15 or so years ago before I throw them out. (I checked, the book value is barely $50, meaning I could expect a lot less) Sad to think of how much fun these were when they were a commodity you could shoot/scramble/trade, how quickly that fun was lost when we started realizing they might be worth money and we should keep them in pristine condition, and how little they turned out to be worth 15 years later. All for nothing.

Get ready for an electrifying and chilling film experience that lays bare the intimate longings of a man—and the woman who has become his captive. Based on the best-selling novel by John Fowles, The Collector tells the story of a quiet London bank clerk (Terence Stamp) whose butterfly collecting hobby takes a sinister twist when he kidnaps a most unusual specimen—a beautiful woman (Samantha Eggar, Golden Globe Best Actress winner for this role). This film is a classic thriller and features a haunting musical score by Maurice Jarre.
As one of the greatest directors of Hollywood's golden age, William Wyler had a long and distinguished roster of films to his credit, among them a number of classics (including Wuthering Heights and The Heiress) that rank among the finest literary adaptations to emerge from the studio system. Near the end of his career, Wyler focused his veteran skills on John Fowles's novel The Collector, and it's easy to see how Wyler would be drawn to the story's resonant psychological underpinnings. It's conceivable that the director was also fascinated by the cinematic precedents set by Alfred Hitchock's Psycho and Michael Powell's Peeping Tom; like those films, Wyler's 1965 production of The Collector focuses on the obsessions of a young man whose need for a woman's affection leads him to desperate measures at the expense of his object of desire.
Terence Stamp was a fine choice for the role of Freddie Clegg, a young, nondescript bank clerk who wins a fortune in a sports pool and is financially liberated to pursue his psychological fixation--specifically a lovely London art student named Miranda Grey (Samantha Eggar) whom Freddie captures in the comfortably furnished cellar of his remote, newly purchased Tudor farmhouse. In many respects she is just another addition to Freddie's impressive and meticulously catalogued collection of butterflies--delicate and beautiful, and kept against her will. Freddie genuinely loves her and treats her with utmost respect, but she is his prisoner. Having been subdued by Freddie's use of chloroform, she later observes that he is responsible for "so much death," and of course she could never return his affection. Or could she?
This richly psychological situation is handled by Wyler with understated grace, but the weight of Freddie's psychosis is never keenly felt; the film's subdued quality ultimately works against the thriller aspects of the story. And yet, the performances of Stamp and Eggar remain sharp and mutually sympathetic, and when Wyler brings the story full circle to yet another "butterfly" for Freddie's collection, the stalker theme leaves the viewer with a considerable chill. Where another movie like 1967's Wait Until Dark relied on more explicit and effective shocks, The Collector works on a subtler level of disturbing but undeniably human behavior. --Jeff Shannon
