So I’m trying to work through my backlog of video games (I remember when I was younger and basically reliant on birthdays/Xmases for acquiring new games and was amazed when I heard about people having a backlog of games, but now I’m a grown ass adult and can buy games for myself, so I totally get it now), and just finished a playthrough of Dishonored. I rather enjoyed the more open approach to completing level objectives, where if you are trying to be stealthy and get spotted, you can still complete your mission and it’s not an insta-fail (I’m looking at YOU, Assassin’s Creed!). Mainly, this is just an excuse to post this really cool song from the game, which is a somewhat spooky version of the traditional Drunken Sailor.
Gerst is particularly fond of photographing dramatic shadows cast by cloud formations - something that we cannot see down here on Earth. These stunning photos remind how awesome clouds are as they cast shadows that stretch for thousands of miles across the planet’s surface. Shadows so long that they eventually disappear into the black horizon.
