Conformity

However much  I love Stockholm (and most of the rest of Sweden in fact) and probably because I return for visits much less frequently than I used to – it is starting to grate on me more and more that practically everyone dresses like clones.  Men and women, girls and boys all have identikit outfits  – during the summer it isn’t quite so bad but at this time of year it is almost a uniform sea of black!

Which suddenly just reminded me of the heist scene from the remake of the Thomas Crown Affair where the museum is overrun with clones of the bowler-hat attired, suited and booted business man from Rene Magritte’s painting “The Son of Man”… a bit of a random connection, but hey!

"The Son of Man", Rene Margritte 1964
