Joan Crawford Misery

"This lady may even have had Houndstooth stocking on. The trauma of her presence emptied Oak Street. She is either an agent of Cthulu or Joan Crawford. Her power is likely to multiply her hat into a vast houndstooth fog that envelopes its victims. Psychic madness!" - Sent in by Nate Dog, Vancouver, Canada

I love the grim, drab Vancouver greyness of the photograph. Really captures the suffering my heart feels when I have to witness such a hideous houndstooth outfit. It's like she's hiding beneath a skin of ugly monochrome scales. I think Edward Hopper might have painted this before burning it and moving on to the more playful Nighthawks.
