PhotoHunt# 23 Yellow

As far as I can remember, the tight-fitting yellow jumpsuit is synonymous to the karate and kung fu icon, Bruce Lee. He wore it in his last known popular movie, Game of Death, before his untimely death.

This is a wax figure of Bruce Lee wearing that famous jumpsuit that we found in Madame Tussaud's wax museum in Victoria Peak, Hongkong.

This is my photohunt entry for this week. See more entries here.

I haven't seen that movie yet too but I'm going to HK soon and will visit the wax museum :-)

Btw, thanks for visiting my site.

Enter the Dragon... blast from the past! Reminds me of my childhood when Bruce Lee was so huge! I remember watching his films with my brother. Thanks for sharing and have a nice weekend.

from the first look it really looks real. I suddenly remembered Uma Thurman with that yellow suit in Kill Bill. Thanks for sharing

Like Jen above, I too had Uma Thurman's Kill Bill I outfit pop into my head. I wonder if it was Tarantino's homage to Bruce Lee?

Here's my first participation in the Photo Hunt!!

cheers,

Love your take on Yellow. I don't think anyone else has done that. I haven't seen that movie...yet. Probably over this next summer as my son is starting to like those movies.

Mine is up...I'm just running behind visiting everyone else.

bruce lee! astig!

like the others here, his yellow suit reminds me of uma thurman in "kill bill"--where she also wears a yellow outfit...and shoes!

I admire Bruce Lee. I watched that movie and it's sad how he died early.
