The Fall (2006) 
I haven’t had time for any personal projects lately due to Fangirl Quest and photo assignments from customers, but I’m hoping to fix that in the near future. (So many ideas, so little time!)
In the meanwhile, here’s a bunch of beautiful screenshots from my all time favourite movie.
I will never stop being inspired by The Fall’s cinematography, the multi-layered story, the performances by an incredible cast, the colours, the costume design, even the list of filming locations and behind-the-scene stories… It’s just a staggering piece of art.

Riverview Hospital
Coquitlam, BC, Canada April 2014

This abandoned mental hospital is a filming location for Supernatural, X-Files, Smallville and many, many other productions. We went there three times during our stay in Vancouver to get some sceneframing photos

The area is way bigger than we expected. There are several hospital buildings surrounded by old trees, roads and pathways and even though it’s all very beautiful, there’s also a very spooky element to it all.

Maybe it’s because we’ve watched too many horror movies, but being surrounded by absolute silence and dark, empty windows in a place like this just gave us nonstop goosebumps.

We even tried to peek in some of the windows but the fear of someone looking back at you or grabbing your wrist, not to mention the old curtains moving around in the wind and all the reflections on the window glass… wow. It was just a bit too much. 

We were told there’s still some patients living in the area and that we should be respectful of that, but we never saw anyone and all the buildings on the lot just didn’t seem good for anyone to live in. In fact, we started to doubt if the lady who told us about the patients was even real…

Highway 1, California
From San Francisco to Los Angeles, April 2014

One of the most stunning places I’ve ever been to! If you ever get to do this trip, be prepared to spend at least 12 hours on it, preferably more. There are dozens of spots where you can’t help but stop and stare at the view.

A good place to grab lunch / dinner would be at this wonderful Italian restaurant called Little Napoli in Carmel-by-the-Sea. For a little stretch-of-legs on the beach and fish’n’chips type of meal you should definitely stop at Pismo Beach (surf shops and cafes along Pomeroy Avenue).

If you want to spend a night on Highway 1, it’ll have to be the cabins and camping grounds in Big Sur.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY FORREST GUMP!

One of the greatest movies of all times is celebrating its 20th birthday right about now, so it’s quite amazing that we got to stand on some of the locations used in the movie exactly two decades later.

The first two photos were taken near Monument Valley, Utah on Route 163. There’s even a little sign saying “Forrest Gump ended his crosscountry run at this spot 1980.”

The other two photos were taken at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.

The photos we took in the desert near Monument Valley were one of the hardest ones ever. The reflections on the iPad, the cars driving past fast every now and then, the heat and the sand… ouch. But wow, what a spot to visit. I’ll never forget it. Hope I’ll get to go back some day.

Show: Supernatural (The End, 5x04)
Location: Riverview Hospital, Vancouver, BC, Canada (Google Map)

Riverview Hospital is an abandoned mental health facility and a filming location for dozens of TV productions. Since the folks of Supernatural seem to use it for filming frequently, we got extremely curious and simply had to plan a visit. In the end, we ended up going back three times during our week’s stay in Vancouver.

The whole hospital area is a beautiful, amazing hillside park with old trees, roads and paths, but the run-down hospital buildings with their endless dark, empty windows are something else. More than once we got spooked by a reflection or an old curtain stirring in the wind in a broken window.

We’ll be posting more photos and stories from Riverview soon, but until then, we hope you enjoy these dear shots from one of our favourite Supernatural episodes ever!

We lost Kurt Cobain 20 years ago.

Twenty years ago I was a young, foolish, but a pretty happy girl who had just discovered artists outside of radio’s top disco hit lists. I’d found out that music can be very personal, inspirational and quite mind-blowing if you just find the right artists to listen to. And of course I found grunge, because is there anything better in the world than that? 

Nope.

Nirvana - Unplugged in New York was my late night album. I’d go to bed listening to it, I’d fall asleep listening to it, and I’d sleep and dream while it was playing in the background until the cassette reached its end. 

It’s always sad to lose young people, but it’s especially sad when those young people have been the kind that inspired and encouraged other people. If they’ve been a big part of your life in any way or affected it in a positive way at all, I don’t think it’s wrong to say it then becomes a personal loss.

In April 1994 I had no idea what could happen during the next 20 years, but here we are now. So much has happened. Some bad, a lot of good, and I’m so happy I’ve been around to live it all.

I’m sorry you missed it all, Kurt. I’ll see you on the other side, but let me stay for a little bit more. But when I do finally cross over, I’ll look you up and fangirl the fuck out of you for the rest of eternity.

Movie: Batman Begins
Location: St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel, London, UK (website)

One of the most beautiful interiors we’ve ever set foot in: the grand staircase of St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel. Short bits of Batman Begins were filmed here, including Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) carrying Rachel Dawes (Katie Holmes) to safety and Batman (Christian Bale) doing this mighty jump through a huge cloud of bats.

The same staircase was used in the legendary Spice Girls video Wannabe, and other parts of the hotel in films like Harry Potter.

See more photos from the staircase in our London travel post!
