A Day In The Life

Quirky and Dark

Tim Burton has been described as a director “notable for the quirky and often dark atmosphere” of his high-profile films. Here is my own feeble attempt at creating a quirky, dark atmosphere.  Too bad I don’t have Johnny Depp to collaborate with. 


Dark centurions muffle the ghostly echo of hoofbeats.


Vultures decorate limbs like macabre Christmas ornaments.


Leafless claws stretch toward an unforgiving blue sky.

Nice! Amber would like this post…but the last photo? A little too bright for Tim!

If the last one was black and white, it would be very Hitchcockian. I prefer Hitchcock to Burton, myself.

You could have had Johnny Depp if you would have been in our area last week. They shot scenes from his new movie there. It was outstanding. He took the time two nights in a row to meet and greet the fans that came out to watch. What a guy.

Oooooo… I like the vulture tree. I think you sufficiently succeeded in producing a macabre scene. (“Patience h**l, I’m gonna go kill somethin’!”)

wonderful! feeble, not hardly, excellent!

I am a huge Tim Burton fan…as well a Depp fan.

very good, the vultures are my favorite by far.

The vultures win the creepy contest! I don’t know if I would have survived the sight!

I am a big Tim Burton (and Johnny Depp) fan. I hope you have an outside light on at night…
