Shot of the Day #169: A Mann Moment....

Shot with iphone. Click to enlarge.

If you've watched enough Michael Mann movies like I have (he's a hero to be sure....cannot WAIT for PUBLIC ENEMIES...9 days and counting) you've noticed that he has a penchant for sticking the camera RIGHT BEHIND the subject's ear in a scene, almost as if we're the parrot on the protagonist's shoulder, watching his or her perspective. Its a style trait he's used for year, at least since HEAT and an angle he's employed in every film ever since. Love him or hate him, you can't deny that a Mann movie looks like a Mann movie.

Bri and I decided to take the road less travelled for our usual nightly walk, so in a Coffee Bean craving, we decided to walk over the 405 on Palms, and it was Remy's first time taking a God's Eye view of the city's major auto artery. I hope he doesn't get used to the view.

This shot just screamed COLLATERAL to me...wonder what Rem is thinking here...

"...I got 5 poops to make..."
