    These really remind me of the film Let the Right One In. Nice atmosphere!

    The first thing that came to mind when I saw the first photo was a scene from The Memory Keeper’s Daughter, if anyone’s read that.

    this makes me think of Let the right one in.

  • rachillin

    It reminds me of a movie at first and I expect someone or an animal to walk into the picture.. I really love these for how much it made me think. Maybe I’m just getting greedy with the pipe though, haha!

    They appear kind of lonely after a second look.

Video of the Day: “Life is a Dance” by Sebastian Linda

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
