In 1954 I was in the Air Force. During down time I was fortunate to be able to take "hops" any where in the world. Here I am as "The Happy Wanderer" posing for a self portrait #selfie, admiring St. Peters Church in Rome. #airforce #rongalellaarchive #photojournalism

#Actor, #comedian, #BillMurray turns 67 today. Bill & #GildaRadner dated during their time together at #SNL and although their romance has been reported as stormy and contentious she will always remain in Murrary's heart." This #iconicphoto of Radner & Murray was snapped at the premiere of 'Manhattan' on April 18, 1979 at the #Ziegfeld Theater, NYC. #Meatballs, #Caddyshack #Ghostbusters - from Live from New York: an Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live

Bill Murray on Gilda Radner: “Gilda got married and went away. None of us saw her anymore. There was one good thing: Laraine had a party one night, a great party at her house. And I ended up being the disk jockey. She just had forty-fives, and not that many, so you really had to work the music end of it. There was a collection of like the funniest people in the world at this party. Somehow Sam Kinison sticks in my brain. The whole Monty Python group was there, most of us from the show, a lot of other funny people, and Gilda. Gilda showed up and she’d already had cancer and gone into remission and then had it again, I guess. Anyway she was slim. We hadn’t seen her in a long time. And she started doing, “I’ve got to go,” and she was just going to leave, and I was like, “Going to leave?” It felt like she was going to really leave forever.

So we started carrying her around, in a way that we could only do with her. We carried her up and down the stairs, around the house, repeatedly, for a long time, until I was exhausted. Then Danny did it for a while. Then I did it again. We just kept carrying her; we did it in teams. We kept carrying her around, but like upside down, every which way—over your shoulder and under your arm, carrying her like luggage. And that went on for more than an hour—maybe an hour and a half—just carrying her around and saying, “She’s leaving! This could be it! Now come on, this could be the last time we see her. Gilda’s leaving, and remember that she was very sick—hello?” We worked all aspects of it, but it started with just, “She’s leaving, I don’t know if you’ve said good-bye to her.” And we said good-bye to the same people ten, twenty times, you know.

Watching #CBSNewsSundayMorning with story about #athlete, tennis great #BillieJeanKing. Billie Jean discussed the soon to be released #TheBattleoftheSexes about King's career as an advocate for gender equality, starring #EmmaStone as Billie and #SteveCarell as #BobbyRiggs. #King blushed and was genuinely honored that #SingerSongwriter, #Elton John wrote a song for her, #ThePhiladelphiaFreedom referring to King's role with the #PhiladelphiaFreedomsTennisTeam. This #iconic shot of King goofing around with John on the tennis court was taken at the Fourth Annual Robert F. Kennedy Pro-Celebrity Tennis Tournament on August 23, 1975 at Forest Hills , NYC.

In all their glory! I snapped a few photos of the magnificent structures known as "The Twin Towers" in June of 1986. At the time of their completion, the original 1 World Trade Center, at 1,368 feet (417 m); and 2 World Trade Center, at 1,362 feet (415.1 m)—were the tallest buildings in the world.


Remembering #FreddieMercury @officialqueenmusic on his birthday, born this day in 1946. #Mercury all smiles 07.27.82 at #CrazyEddies, NYC, promoting #HotSpace. Quoted from Wikipedia: The Who lead singer Roger Daltrey called Mercury "the best virtuoso rock 'n' roll singer of all time. He could sing anything in any style. He could change his style from line to line and, God, that's an art. And he was brilliant at it."
