"Sculpting In Time" -- Andrei Tarkovsky's book on art and cinema
This Foolish Aesthete was watching "The Mirror" last night by legendary film maker, Andrei Tarkovsky. Each frame is so patiently beautiful. His philosophy in film: "Sculpting in time."

Inspired so, I went about just trying to be in the moment. No intentions of capturing anything in particular. Tarkovsky never felt the need to provide action or even a straight narrative in his storytelling. (Of course, I could never shoot anything as beautiful as Tarkovsky.)
The sun was getting low but still bright. I nearly burnt my eyeballs trying to get shots straight at the sun through the trees. (I know, stupid, right?) With eyes hurting, I decided to focus on the reflection in the pool instead. This is the image that came out. The colors actually came out Tarkovsky-esque unintentionally. It doesn't even look like the pool at all.
How about you -- what are your favorite films?
