Chicago, 1930s: the “Cauliflower Trust” is making a move to conquer the vegetable trade when petty criminal Arturo Ui concocts his protection racket.  After a reign of terror, Ui emerges as an undisputed mob boss and king of the vegetable monopoly.  Bertolt Brecht’s play is much more than a simple gangland comedy, however.  Written in the early 1940s, the play is also a thinly veiled allegory of the rise of Adolph Hitler and the Third Reich, told through the borrowed plot of Shakespeare’s Richard III.

Eclipse of the blood moon

Seldom are conditions so perfect as they were on Sept. 27 for a total lunar eclipse.   These photos were taken with Nikon D 7000 and 400 mm telephoto lens,  with multiple different f stops and speeds,  then assembled with Pic Monkey software.    Enjoy—–Ed
