A picture is a picture is a picture. I happened to see a documentary about the American pilots bombing the Ploesti oil fields in Romania. They were important to the nazi war machine. So I could associate to that historic moment. But it is inevitable that today I associate it to the killing of 3 000 people in New York. Many people have probably forgotten that Sept 11 was also the day of the military coup in Chile (1973) and to Swedish people the day when the foreign minister Anna Lindh died after being assasinated.
I was in Barcelona Sept 11, 2001 and left early for the airport. It is also the day of Catalunya!
The news about the attacks in New York reached me when I got to the airport in Stockholm. Horrifying news.

Thank you Mr. Urbano for this important comment.
It lets me say that I shot this photo reminding Futurism, its fascist aesthetics, speed, war glories. They often expressed themselves with sounds and onomatopoeic words, from which this title idea.
Nowadays, in that public area, some architect feels like giving us again some new feelings of power...
but where has good philosophy gone?

"The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways; the point is to change it."

an excellent Futuristic photo. i think we are in the "business" world...profits for some....nothing for others. make it "beautiful" and the response is positive. philosophy? well, you have to know how to read and think...a rare thing in my country.
