tim burton on (or in front of) the set of the corpse bride, 2005.
this is the image that lodged itself most firmly in my mind this week – i’m looking forward to seeing everyone else’s in the comments! last week rendered some pretty gorgeous results in that department (if you haven’t yet, check out some of the links people left – just beautiful). for anyone who missed it, the photographic roundup is a weekly post of images that have captured my fancy over the past seven days – and an open call for any visual wonders my readers may have uncovered, as well. please don’t be shy. i’m fascinated by the photographs that enchant other people, and i’d also like this to become a sort of resource, over time – a whole section of my blog devoted to wonderful, magic-inspiring pictures.

this week, though, i need to apologise for being late with the roundup; i tried so hard to get this posted yesterday, but to no avail. i tried on 4 – 4! – separate occasions to get this post up, but the gods of the internet were against me, had deemed friday the 26th as a day without published designs on fragility. ah well. the internet is like that, sometimes.

anyway. this week’s photographs are all about tim burton, because frankly, most of the images i’ve encountered have had him to blame. i went to the opening of his ACMI exhibition the other night, and henceforth my mind has been full of his work. this week has also had a lot to do with kittens, but i just can’t bring myself to post meaningless (albeit cute) pictures of random itty bitty cats, so that one will have to wait until next week when hopefully i can post photos of my own. i’ll put up a proper review of the burton exhibition+opening night tomorrow, but fridays (or rather make-up fridays) are image-focused, so images it is.
