Vertigo: taking a dip

This is from the day I started out to get to the famous spot under the Bridge, but my feet got tired...so I substituted another San Francisco Landmark which appears in Vertigo, the Palace of Fine Arts. One more scene from Vertigo to go -

Its a great backdrop to set your scene to. The male figure looks very 3d with all the shading. How do you get the shadows, is that photo shop?

Jasmine -

the shadows are real, the photoshop work on these mostly concerns removing the tape and wire supports.

YOU are magnificent. This is the most wonderful thing I've ever seen. (Well, you know, excluding grandchildren.) Do you mail only one traveling Alice or several? I love the Alice in the round rocks with holes. - Jeanne

Is the Science Museum still there?

If you get around to sending more Alice's or Mad Hatters or something, I could utilize in a weekly or bi-weekly posting here ; )

Hope all is well your way!

Cheers!

I have to keep reminding myself you planted these figures there. Really realistic. Shadows and all!

These are so wonderful and whimsical. Cant wait to receive Alice in Spain.

Oh, will he be sorry he didn't just let her drown. Initial title for the movie was: The Curse of the Good Samaritan Afflicted with Acrophobia But Who Knew How to Swim. They shortened it to Vertigo because it didn't fit on most theater marquees.

(yes, of course I made that up.)

Best from Graulhet, Susan.

I'd love to know where these little figures go after their photo shoots.

more fun stuff. love the Presidio. my best friend and I used to drive to SF every Spring break. It's about six hours from LA and we always went up 101 then over through Big Sur. How we loved that. Her aunt lived in Marin, off Sir Francis Drake Blvd. One year, we took a hippie friend of ours and blew her aunt away. He was in school @ Cal Poly, looked like a derelict. he wasn't but she didn't know that. I think she made him sleep in the garage.

Loved this scene a lot. The lighting and also the depth of the 2 characters. :)
