The Lamest Duck
Another TIME.com slideshow: This time it’s President Bush’s recent trip to Europe. Most of the images aren’t of Bush at all, though; they’re of the weird moments and empty spaces that surround any State Visit.
No idea if this is intended, but it feels a lot like a photo op-ed. The pictures definitely seem to make an argument: about the hollowness of pomp, about the scene behind the TV cameras, about being alone in the world.
