Weekly Photo Challenge: Zigzag

zig

In Freebie and The Bean, Alan Arkin is a detective trying to run across the road with bullets zinging around him. He starts running and he’s almost across when his partner James Caan tells him he has to zig zag.

So Arkin runs back across the road to do it again, only properly.

I love the non sequitur of him running the risk of being shot crossing the road zig zagging, when he already crossed the road.

The building I saw today has some zig, but lacks in the zag department. It’s an installation being built in the grounds of the Modern Art Museum in Edinburgh.

  1. Fabulous David – you’re right, the non sequitur of him running the risk of being shot crossing the road zig zagging, when he already crossed the road is wonderful. Two great actors you mention there. The bldg is intriguing – designed as a greenhouse, summerhouse, …? I do like that it lacks the Zag element, has me feeling as though somehow the zag is up to us. 😀

    1. It’s an art installation – I’ll know more when it’s completed. I think you are right – I thought I was kind of zagging as I photographed it 😀

      It is in the grounds of Modern Art One and I saw it when I did a short course on lithography at Modern Art Two (across the road) a few days ago.
