i love this shot ms scarlett, its what the camera was invented for.
Why, thank you, Mr Chapman, that’s a very fine compliment.
i’m not normally so formal, i just like the name ms scarlett.
I prefer Miss. 🙂 Thanks, John. 🙂
Apart from the fact that I like being a 53 year old ‘Miss’, ‘Ms Scarlett’ sounds like ‘Mizz Scarlett’ which reminds me of that bloody movie ‘Away on a Breeze.’ 😉
glad to say i’ve never heard of that film. anyway i much prefer ‘miss’ scarlett.
It’s not really called that. Think antebellum. 🙂
oh, sorry i was being a bit (no, make that very) dense. as in vivien leigh in ‘away on a breeze’… never actually seen it, for which i am grateful. i could make some kind of pun about not giving a damn but i think life is too short.
I really the repeated ‘frames’, S.E (or the frame within the frame)…
and the ‘glow’…
Thanks Robert. I like the blank white rectangle being the most salient feature while being surrounded by so much dark detail. 🙂
channels “Twilight Zone”…
Ah, so that explains how I’ve come to be living in tiny room in a boarding house that I’m longing to escape from!
Do you think the dvd player is actually a portal back to somewhere … else?
Perhaps I should try jumping through?
“Twilight Zone”… sums it up perfectly. A Moebius Box, very well done.
Ahh! No! A moebius BOX? Does that mean I have to go around and around in here forever and ever?
Perhaps it is a room in a tesseract house ?
See: “—And He Built a Crooked House—” by Robert A. Heilein – a very funny read.
I had to look up ‘tesseract’, Joseph. I can’t get my head around it and the fourth dimension business.
Thanks for the recommendation – are there instructions regarding escape from such a thing? 🙂
The story is set-up followed by screw-ball comedy& looney-tunes escape. It is one of those classic short stories that keeps getting reprinted in collections, including English textbooks . There is a summary online, the summary lacks the humour. 🙂
Cool, Joseph. Thank you. 🙂
