Up At The Blue Parrot
Photograph - Photograph
In my favorite movie “Casablanca”, Humphrey Bogart is Rick Blaine, the proprietor of Rick’s Café Americain, a posh casino. There is friendly competition from the less elegant Blue Parrot Café operated by Signor Ferrari.
Rick’s former lover Ilsa arrives in Casablanca with her husband creating more than a little tension.
One night Ilsa comes to the café looking for Rick:
Ilsa: Where is Rick?
Sam: I don't know. I ain't seen him all night.
Ilsa: When will he be back?
Sam: Not tonight no more. He ain't comin'...He went home.
Ilsa: Does he always leave so early?
Sam: Oh, he never..., well, he's got a girl up at the Blue Parrot. He goes up there all the time.
Ilsa: (She turns away and reaches for her champagne glass.) You used to be a much better liar, Sam.
The title for this picture is borrowed from Sam’s lie and the Signor Ferrari’s club.
I shot this image at a roadside farm stand on the Tamiami Trail between St. Petersburg and Sarasota, Florida. The bird perched on the bales brought to mind the Blue Parrot of Casablanca.
