Sofia Loren

Post by Uncle Al »

Hard to believe that Sofia Loren is 85 years old. She is pictured with her son,
Carlo Ponti Jr(50), as she was presented with the European Cultural Award - Taurus.

She's holding the award in this picture and received a kiss from her son.

(This really makes me feel OLD :!: )

These pics are IMG links. The website would not let me save
the images. :(

They would not show up on any of my computers. Old or new.

Right click on the image. Choose 'copy image' (or equivalent).
Open a PDF document browser such as Acrobat or Mac Preview etc.
Paste the image into Acrobat/Preview
If you wish, Save the image as a jpg file or whatever format you want.

There are any number of ways of subverting madness like "protected images", the simplest (and worst case) is a screen-shot of the image saved off in your favourite format.

In this case, the files as they appear on the server are in some strange format that perhaps only Internet Exploder understands. I downloaded the contents of the link and tried importing it in as many image formats I know of. An invocation of the UNIX "file" command indicated that it was a "little-endian RIFF file". A little bit of digging indicated that it was a Resource Interchange File Format blob and I pretty much gave up interest on the matter as I had other things to do.

Interesting. I had no problem at all viewing and saving the images. I'm using the latest Firefox browser on a 2015 iMac running OS Mojave.

Weird... the post loads normally on my phone (running Firefox mobile app, on a Samsung Galaxy S10.

Yet on my old Windows Vista desktop machine (running a most certainly outdated version of Firefox), I get nothing....

I googled Sofia Loren and the response was .......Sophia Loren 2019 . .....A series of photos of the same Lady as shown in this thread .

I can confirm that Sinned was correct in his comment regarding the spelling error in the title of this thread.

Was this thread posted without sufficient research by the originator ?

She's got a creepy facelift perma-smile. Who is this person (much less her son), and why should I care?

Don't feel old, feel relieved to still have the face God gave you!

Thank you all but I didn't mention it for brownie points.

And UA it just goes to show you how accurate the internot is.

And always check your sources .... :lol:

The pictures do show with Windows 10.

As to Sophia, traces of her former beauty, that she was, can still be seen. She was one of the great actresses in the 60's, famous for her eyes which Peugeot tried to catch in the headlights of amongst other the 206 model.
