we may come up with a plan, scouting for up to a year for a new location to try and see if you can get another wonderful shot, but sometimes (and because we're human), something unexpected will make the original plan impossible. sometimes there's a way around it, sometimes there isn't. when there isn't a way around it, we are left with two options:
- admit defeat.
so the bridge walkway on which i had originally hoped to take pictures was closed. it was too late to make my way to the spot i visited last year, so i instead backtracked until there was a decent view (one would be surprised at how tall those pine trees at the right of the picture) and hoped for something to turn out. sometimes all you can do is cross your fingers and not worry so much.

i think one of the wonderful side effects of the seattle international film festival is that many of the films i was unable to see eventually make their way back to the theatres for a regular run. "your sister's sister" opened the festival this year, but it was at a time when long nights in the office made it almost impossible to attend even some of the other weeknight screenings where i did make it.
nevertheless, i do recommend it. i think the ending may have happened too fast and too conveniently for me, but it was still a film and a story that i very much loved. it was a good way to end the first half of a holiday week.
