Reporter going full-out on the Fukushima drama & fear crank; forgets that there was a tsunami. But it makes for good photos.

This may sound dumb, but last week I cried tears of sorrow about what the japanese people are going through right now.

When you undertake the grim thought of disaster photos as art it opens up a lot of emotions that artists can't touch. There's something poetic about a few of these images that isn't in a lot of the stuff on scenic. I can't quite express what it is though... something along the lines of the ancient holy structures standing tall in the wake of the modern crumbling buildings. It's a thought provoking sentiment:
"How many times has this happened in thousands of years?"
"Did the ancients know?"
"Is this a sign of divine protection or divine wrath?"

The unfortunately banal truth is, shinto gates have no complex structure - they keep standing.

Related under "yep, good thinking, ancestors"

"Modern sea walls failed to protect coastal towns from Japan's destructive tsunami last month. But in the hamlet of Aneyoshi, a single centuries-old tablet saved the day.

"High dwellings are the peace and harmony of our descendants," the stone slab reads. "Remember the calamity of the great tsunamis. Do not build any homes below this point."

It was advice the dozen or so households of Aneyoshi heeded, and their homes emerged unscathed from a disaster that flattened low-lying communities elsewhere and killed thousands along Japan's northeastern shore."

Nice ones. Interiors can take us new journeys, for sure. The image I posted here actually belongs with the others further below, but I screwed up the upload. I was trying to do a 'nice places to sit' theme. Anyway, here are a few more interiors I like.

Sling shii an email and he can probably fix the threads so that your original 'places to sit' thread has the original OP post and this thread continues on as an interiors thread.

I looked and couldn't find a thread with a similar subject.

How about we post links to clips that are atmospheric or artistic/relevant to the board, either visually or thematically?

The visual style in this little clip is amazing.

This isn't scenic, but it has an interesting style and a kind of atmospheric subject. Dark and twisted.

This is a promo video for a GMod RP server. The map they use in this video, rp_apocalypse, looks rather scenic in the vid, especially at 1:57 and 2:31.

Slow motion bullet impacts. A chance to appreciate the smaller things in the world. Unfortunately the music for this video sucks and Tubedubber currently isn't working.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfDoQwIAaXg

So I recommend muting the music in that, and then playing this in the background:

You can substitute the Mansell for music of your choice.

So, I'm thinking of redesigning my room to look like a sort of enchanted forest thing. I need some pictures to get some good ideas on what to paint. Fairies, mushrooms, gnomes and trees will be included. Please and thank you.

The artist Arthur Rackham did one of the most famous collections of fairies and gnomes. Searching on his name may give you many examples and ideas.

That looks familiar. As a child the family had many picture/illustrated story books. Some were quite old, second hand picked up from various places.

Sometimes now, years later I remember the art in them, being something I could still appreciate now.
Unfortunately most have been given away to other people.
