- A white house with a folly
I remember being in Cannes one time when the film festival was on and it was really weird. From early in the morning there were all these girls dressed up like models walking around striking poses at the edge of the road whenever there was a hint of a camera around or whenever a fancy car came along that might possibly have someone important in it. Often photographers would stop and take a load of pictures while the girl pouted and did various poses and then the photographers would just continue on to wherever they were going. At the time I couldn't believe that this approach to getting spotted would ever work but maybe talent spotters do trawl the streets. I still think it's weird.
