"At the doors of Babylon, You are my Zion,
Pacing Tiger, The keeper's cage,
Invisible light shoots from your eyes,
A sign I can see from my high rise"



The video for "Invisible Light" by Scissor Sisters directed by Marc Goméz del Moral.
Inspirational and shot beautifully, the whole dream-like sequence of this video is so rich aesthetically and so surreal, I had to share some of the stills in here as they work really well individually.



















"Babylon,
Where bricks of mortared diamonds tower,
Sailor's lust and swagger lazing in moon's beams,
Whose laser gaze penetrates this sparkling theater of excess and strobed lights,
Painted whores, sexual gladiators, fiercely old party children,
All wake from their slumber to debut the Bacchanal.
Come to the light! Into the light! The invisible light."

From 2010 to 2011

So here we are, first post of 2011. People seem to believe that the beginning of a new year is the time to make big decisions and big changes. I do believe that everyday is a day for changes, resolutions and taking steps forward. Of course it might help to have a date in which you're supposed to make your resolutions, but lessons, we learn them day after day, and one of the most valuable lessons I've been learning is that one can only fully count with oneself.

As everyone else, I do have lots of things I want to achieve in this new year, but I won't make any promises, not to anyone nor to myself, apart from giving my best, that is what I promise, 'cause I still have a lot to show, a lot to discover and a lot to create. Hopefully this new year will bring me a whole bunch of new things!

To finish, I'll leave you with some of the images I did over this last year.


Happy new year, everyone!
