From an obituary in this afternoon's online New York Times

"Mr. Morris published his autobiography, 
Get the Picture: A Personal History of Photojournalism , in 1998."

The obit suggests a review of posts mentioning the film
"The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," starring Kristen Wiig

See as well Wiig and the Louvre Banquet Hall in  L.A. —

The book title Get the Picture  above suggests a review of
a different Louvre picture, starring Audrey Hepburn —

"Take  the  picture,  take  the  picture!"

“Kilimanjaro is a snow covered mountain 19,710 feet high,
and is said to be the highest mountain in Africa. Its western
summit is called the Masai ‘Ngàje Ngài,’ the House of God.
Close to the western summit there is a dried and frozen carcass
of a leopard. No one has explained what the leopard was seeking
at that altitude.” — Ernest Hemingway, epigraph to a story

Some background —
