В Instagram всеки има естетика, която го влече. Дали ще се бориш за минималистичен фийд, дали ще наблягаш на топлите цветове или фийдът ти ще е студен като сърцето на The Night King, няма значение – то със сигурност има акаунт, по който точиш лиги и в който задълбаваш до към лятото на 2012та. В последните няколко седмици за мен това е @accidentallywesanderson, акаунт, кюриран от Wally Koval (Уес Андерсън fanboy), който публикува снимки на архитектура и обекти, сякаш излязли от филм на режисьора. Усещанeто е дотолкова идентично, че имаш чувството, че Марго Тененбаум аха да се появи и да си запали цигара. Идеална симетрия, пастелни цветове, нещо поне малко необичайно или за да си в десетката Бил Мъри в кадър – ако снимката ти отговаря на тези критерии, можеш да се пробваш и да я изпратиш на Wally.
Новият филм на режисьора тръгва по кината на 23-ти, а по случая VSCO пуснаха три безплатни филтри, вдъховени от палитрата на Isle of Dogs.
Ако пък тази събота си в Лондон, The Prince Charles Cinema организира Уес Андерсън маратон с 8 филма и един билет. Започва в 20.45 на 24 март и свършва (700 минути) към обяд в неделя. Можеш ли да издържиш?
Сподели в коментар любимия си филм на Уес Андерсън, колкото до мен – винаги съм искала да съм Тененбаум.
_________________________ Aigle–Sépey–Diablerets Rail | Switzerland | c. 1914 • • Railways came to the Chablais area of Vaud and Valais in 1857 when the Lausanne – Simplon railway opened its line through Aigle. This was to act as the catalyst for other projects in the late 19th century designed to link the valley floor with communities in the mountain • • The first link opened in 1840, connecting Aigle to Le Sepey by road with services provided by stagecoach, pre-dating the coming of the railway • • In October 1898, the Swiss Parliament approved an application by the ASD to build and operate a railway between Aigle, Le Sépey and Leysin. Nine months later construction began • • On July 1914 the last section of the line to Vers l’Eglise and Les Diablerets was completed and the following day Berne issued a permit to operate the entire line between Aigle and Les Diablerets • • Aigle’s railway station is still served by the trains of the Swiss Federal Railways but also those of three, local, narrow-gauge railways: the Aigle-Ollon-Monthey-Champéry (AOMC), the Aigle – Leysin (AL) and the Aigle-Le Sépey-Diablerets (ASD) • • Know more?

_________________________ Holland Harbor Light | Holland, Michigan | 1872 • • The Holland Harbor Light, known as “Big Red”, is located in Ottawa County, Michigan at the entrance of a channel connecting Lake Michigan with Lake Macatawa, and which gives access to the city of Holland, Michigan • • In 1870 after decades of local requests that went unanswered, the United States Lighthouse Board finally recommended construction of the first light at Holland Harbor. It was thereupon approved by the U.S. Congress • • The first lighthouse built at this location was a small, square wooden structure erected in 1872. In 1880 the lighthouse service installed a new light atop a metal pole in a protective cage – the oil lantern was lowered by pulleys for service • • At the turn of the century, a steel tower was built for the light and in 1907 the present structure was erected. Named the Holland Harbor South Pierhead Lighthouse, it has a gabled roof that reflects the Dutch influence in the area • • The lighthouse, popularly referred to as “Big Red,” was automated in 1932. When the U. S. Coast Guard recommended that it be abandoned in 1970, citizens circulated petitions to rescue it. The Holland Harbor Lighthouse Historical Commission was then organized to preserve and restore this landmark • • In 2007, the United States Department of the Interior announced that the Holland Harbor Light would be protected, making it the 12th Michigan lighthouse to have such status • • Know more?

#AccidentalWesAnderson State Historical Museum | Moscow, Russia | c. 1872 • • The State Historical Museum is a museum of Russian history wedged between Red Square and Manege Square in Moscow • • Built in 1872, its exhibitions range from relics of prehistoric tribes that lived on the territory of present-day Russia, through priceless artworks acquired by members of the Romanov dynasty. The total number of objects in the museum’s collection comes to millions • • The place where the museum now stands was formerly occupied by the Principal Medicine Store, built by order of Peter the Great in the Moscow baroque style. Several rooms in that building housed royal collections of antiquities. Other rooms were occupied by the Moscow University, founded by Mikhail Lomonosov in 1755 • • The present structure was built based on Sherwood’s neo-Russian design between 1875 and 1881. The first 11 exhibit halls officially opened in 1883 during a visit from the Tsar and his wife • • Its interiors were intricately decorated in the Russian Revival style by many acclaimed Russian artists, but during the Soviet period the murals were proclaimed gaudy and were plastered over. The museum went through a painstaking restoration of its original appearance between 1986 and 1997 • • Notable items include a longboat excavated from the banks of the Volga River, gold artifacts of the Scythians, birch-bark scrolls of Novgorod, and manuscripts going back to the sixth century! The museum’s coin collection alone includes 1.7 million coins, making it the largest in Russia • • Know more?

#AccidentalWesAnderson Port Vell Aerial Tramway | Barcelona, Spain | c. 1931 • • The Port Vell Aerial Tramway is an aerial tramway in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. It crosses Port Vell, Barcelona’s old harbour, connecting the Montjuïc hill with the seaside suburb of Barceloneta • • It first opened in 1931 and is principally a tourist attraction, used on account of its excellent views of the city and the port. It is operated by Teleféricos de Barcelona S.A. and is not part of Autoritat del Transport Metropolità integrated fare network • • The tramway was intended to be an attraction at the 1929 Barcelona International Exposition, a World’s fair • • The towers were designed by architect Carles Buigas and the tramway line was built by Bleichert, a company with a worldwide reputation, which had just completed the Aeri de Montserrat. However, the size of the project was underestimated and the tramway did not open until 12 September 1931 • • Initially, the tramway consisted of two sections with two cars each, traveling from the terminal stations to Torre Jaume I and back, with one haul rope for the total length to move all four cabins • • Unfortunately, all hopes for a commercial success of the venture were annihilated in the Great Depression and in the Spanish Civil War (1936–1939). Torre Jaume I was used as a look-out and a machine gun post, and the tramway was heavily damaged, reduced to the rusting towers • • In 1960, Torre Sebastià reopened with a new restaurant at its top, followed two years later by Torre Jaume I. In 1963 the tramway reopened with only two cabins • • Then in 1996, Barcelona decided to redevelop Port Vell and to build the World Trade Centre at that time the tramway was also renovated and it reopened in 2000. It still operates today as a tourist attraction • • Know more?
