I want to to thank Deppfan for informing me of this trailer! Thank you Pam - it looks AWESOME!! A must see movie. Very Terry Gilliam-ish.
In a nut shell from Wiki . . . .
The film follows the leader of a traveling theatre troupe who, having made a deal with the Devil, takes audience members through a magical mirror to explore their imaginations.
Christopher Plummer, Tom Waits, and Heath Ledger star in the film, though Ledger's death one-third of the way through filming caused production to be temporarily suspended. Ledger's role was recast with Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell portraying transformations of Ledger's character Tony as he travels through a dream world.
Wonderful morning today - rain, dropping temps and like an idiot I decide I want to take photos of the Capitol as it is pink because it is breast awareness month and people must think the State Cap looks like a giant breast with something sexy on it's nipple.
So here I am with an umbrella that is having equipment failure of 3 fronts, (might as well just wrap it over my head like a water proof burqa), a tripod, a camera that I'm trying to keep dry and a backpack that for some god awful reason I decided I needed two more brewing books and weights 20 pounds AND a USA Today which has somehow turned into a Milwaukee Sentential which is useless to me after I put 4 quarters in the freaking box.
I STILL took a photo!
And as I was getting my paper and trying to struggle with my dag blasted umbrella I took this.
In other news - I have reports that there are big cranes up near the grain elevator - sounds like they have finally taken one of my ideas and are starting to up the big Columbus Welcome U sign!! YEA BABY!!!
I'm having second thoughts about suspending Udey Dam over the highway. It would be like the dam was STILL being held over our heads!
BTW - speaking of US 151. Since I travel this cement river every day I'm starting to see the the same wide loads traveling south and I wonder where they are coming from.
What I have seen almost every week this summer are HUGE round tubes that seem to come in pairs (two trucks caravans with chase vehicles). Like what would be going to NASA or maybe bridge supports? ANY clue what these are or where they are coming from?
Also I've see a lot of trucks carrying banks of lights. I'm thinking there is some ET event going on in ILL or something! I wonder if the two are linked together??
And last I've seen some HUGE gears (or would the correct work be sprocket?) - like one BIG sprocket on a truck or one HUGE tread for some ginormous earth digger thingy. My curiosity is killing me!
Back to photos - for any other photographers out there. I am trying very hard to . . take more photos. How many times have you seen something and then a minute later WISHED you have taken a photo once the image has had a chance to percolate into your brain. You turn around and - GONE, you can not recreate it.
Last night we were driving through Columbus and the lighting was perfect (meaning it was not raining) and some of the streets in Columbus were just awesome. We drove on and I commented about the beauty and vowed that once we got home I would change from work clothes to photo cloths - go back and take some photos!
TOO late!! The sun was not perfect anymore - another lost opportunity! So my goal is to stop being lazy and take photos AS I SEE THEM!!
Thus - the two shots I took this morning.
Here - I had to boost up some faux sunlight a little !
OK - who can guess what street this is!
Have a dry Thursday!
