Uncle Fester bobbing for apples as Morticia holds a pistol while Gomez looks at the camera

1

With the way Morticia holds that gun above Uncle Fester’s head, I wonder if there’s a dire consequence if he fails to get the apples!

Morticia, her husband Gomez, and their Uncle Fester are just three members of the macabre and somber-looking but humorous Addams Family. This photo, perhaps either a behind-the-scenes shot or a publicity still for classic “The Addams Family” television series, shows exactly the brand of dark humor that this family has.

“The Addams Family” first aired in the mid-sixties and is based on cartoonist Charles Addams’ New Yorker cartoons of the same name. It stars actors John Astin as Gomez, Carolyn Jones as Morticia Frump, Lisa Loring and Ken Weatherwax as their children Wednesday and Pugsley, Jackie Coogan as Uncle Fester, Blossom Rock as Grandmama, Ted Cassidy and his hand as the butler Lurch and Thing!

    If only TV series were like this still, unfortunately now we mostly get re-runs or reality tv shows that are neither funny or enjoyable to watch, nice article :)

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

    Film Experiments: In The Dark - The True Analogue Experiment

    Throwing chemicals, fire, and scratching emulsion are just a few ways of experimenting with film. But there's another process that completely destroys it (or, if you're lucky, creates something amazing), that is as spastic as a drunken man staggering his way home after a night at the pub - literally. And it all comes down to darkness.

    Light is Magical: A Talk With Li Hui

    Photography is not only an act of documentation or communication, it is also a way of seeing the world. The camera opens our eyes and lets us see what lies behind the obvious, and we start looking at things as potential subjects of a photograph. Every leak of light unveils secrets that talented photographers turn into a piece of art. Li Hui is one of those gifted artists. We talked to her about her work and her sensitive photographs that picture a wonderful vulnerability.

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
