Smokey 1647 hr (Friday 20th December 2019)
Smokey was doing his best to fool the autofocus in an attempt to get fed sooner. I really should remember to use manual focus in such situations. His strategy worked.
Note to self: Tidy kitchen.

Lozarhythm Of The Day:
Miles Davis - Chez le photographe du motel (recorded 4-5 December 1957, Le Poste Parisien Studio, Paris, for the soundtrack to the 1958 film by Louis Malle Ascenseur pour l'échafaud (Lift to the Scaffold) starring Jeanne Moreau)
Miles Davis (trumpet), Barney Wilen (tenor sax), René Urtreger (piano), Pierre Michelot (stand-up bass), Kenny Clarke (drums)
The soundtrack of modal jazz on the album to the film is largely thought to have set the groundwork for Miles Davis's next two milestone albums, Milestones (1958) and Kind Of Blue (1959), and the film is considered important in the establishing of the Nouvelle Vague. The soundtrack score, improvised by Miles Davis, and the relationship the film established between music, image and emotion, were considered ground-breaking at the time, while the score by Miles Davis was described by jazz critic Phil Johnson as "The loneliest trumpet sound you will ever hear, and the model for sad-core music ever since. Hear it and weep". I heard it on Iggy Pop's marvellous Confidential show.
