i think about this image a lot

that chiaroscuro light-dark technique

man i love it. i obviously like black and white imagery a lot??? lookit this very website

plus i’m still obsessed with octopi (/octopuses)

and of course THE MASTER HIMSELF, writer / director / producer and star of ‘the lady from shanghai’, orson welles, is the sad shadowy man in the sad shadowy aquarium

we must assume that he devised and framed and filmed this cool-ass shot himself, and so it is very good indeed

thanks orson
