I stumbled upon this lovely blog today. In addition to being San Francisco's biographer, Odessa posts amazing pictures, lovely movie reviews, and thought provoking quotes pulled out of poetry and books.

I spent a good while looking over the pictures of some of my favorite places around San Francisco like Point Reyes (you can see my take on it here - I still count that day among the happiest of my life) and reveling in the fact that there was another adult out there learning how to dance classical ballet!
While looking through her blog I noticed she posted screenshots of Oto-na-ri, a Japanese movie. Since I was up and it was on the internet, I thought I'd give it a shot and watch it. Oh my stars, the use of light in that movie is phenomenal! It's really well done and well captured, funny and beautiful all at the same time.

If you want to check it out, it's here. And for those of you who care, I'm totally making a smock like the ones they use in the flower shops...and wearing out out and about.


  1. Nice of you to share.
    I'm all for the smock!

  2. hi elizabeth, thanks for the love! *blush, blush*

    i'm so glad you loved "oto na ri"! and i agree with you about the light..its so lovely. and how they used everyday sounds to make it all come together. ahhhh..i could go on and on!

    so, it seems like we have a lot in common (ballet, especially). i'm so glad you wandered over to my blog. love, love, your photos. and so great to meet you. cheers! :D
