COSTA RICA GETS SHOWERED WITH FLOWER PETALS
Ad giants McCann commissioned photographer Nick Meeks to create a visionary campaign for SONY’s new 4K TV. The new 4k promises to have a picture quality 4x’s the resolution of standard HDTV.
I’d have to say he hit this assignment out of the park - because it doesn’t seem real - the millions of flower petals that were blasted into the air in Costa Rica to showcase the beauty of their new 4K. It took the creative team and the entire village 2 weeks to pluck the 8 million flower petals that symbolize the 8 million pixel display of the 4K tv.
Sony says, “to see the real depth and detail of each petal gliding in the air, floating on the water, or blowing in the streets, you need to see it on one of their new 4K televisions in a showroom near you.” - of course…there’s the catch. But as incredible as it looks in 1080p, I think I’m willing to do that.
"A Dream Within A Dream" by Edgar Allan Poe
Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.
I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?
John La Gatta. American (1894 - 1977)
Rocking my messy hair and I don’t care. Hope you are all having a lovely day.
“Few people know how to take a walk. The qualifications are endurance, plain clothes, old shoes, an eye with nature, good humor, vast curiosity, good speech, good silence, and nothing else.”
