The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie

Most remarkable about the classic Polaroid: how the the format makes the world look at once exquisite and exhilarating, but also penetrated somehow with a kind of sinister 'burn'.   Some subliminal color/mood incoherence.

What happened after this was taken?  Note tiny fellows in corner, on another pole, practicing for the mass electrocution of innocents.
