Who Said What

Assignment Description :- Find a picture of any secret agent you would like, preferably a fairly well-known one. Next, pick a quote from a similar secret agent character. Finally, attribute said quote to a third similar character. You want the characters you chose to be well-known but also similar enough that people would confuse them with one another.

Explanation :- The characters I chose for the picture are my all time favorites Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. The quote is from the first Jame Bond movie Dr No and is about how Bond describes the first bond girl Ursula Andress. I have deviated from the assignment here in that I am attributing the quote to Sherlock himself. It kind of tickles me to have the Bohemian bachelor Holmes have this archetypal playboy quote attributed to him.

I’ve used photoshop to edit the original and tried to give it an authentic Sydney Paget look (the original illustrator of Sherlock Holmes stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle).

Here are some pics of Ursula Andress from the particular scene and the movie

Hope you enjoyed going through my post. I certainly enjoyed putting it together.

Just a fun photo that I clicked with my wife. I’ve tried to show my love for photography and for my wife in the same frame. The camera is both a point of confluence and conflict (at times) with my wife and is a constant companion on our trips.
