Wes Anderson, yarattığı simetrik kompozisyonu ve kullandığı renk paletiyle günümüzün en karakteristik yönetmenlerinden birisi. Wes Anderson’ın pencereleri, iç mekan tasarımları, taşıtları gibi pek çok öğe hem farklı mecralarda çalışan sanatçılara ve video makale üreten yapımcılara ilham verdi. Her ne kadar sinemada özneyi kameranın tam ortasına koymak yeni bir teknik olmasa da yönetmenin ürettikleri bir imzaya dönüşmeyi başardı.

Instagram’da 10 Haziran’dan beri aktif olan @accidentallywesanderson hesabı da sıradan insanların veya fotoğrafçıların çektikleri simetrik fotoğrafları paylaşıyor. Bir nevi, kazara Wes Anderson olan kareler derleniyor. Hesabın dikkatini çekmek için ilgili fotoğrafa #AccidentalWesAnderson etiketini eklemek yeterli. Hesabın yöneticisi seçtiği fotoğrafın sahibine kredi vererek fotoğraftaki öğelere dair bilgi de ekleyerek paylaşıyor. Hesabı yalın bir simetriden öteye götüren şey ise The Grand Budapest Hotel’in binaları, Moonrise Kingdom’ın deniz feneri, The Darjeeling Limited’in treni gibi öğelere yer vermesi. Bire bir o yapılar, taşıtlar değiller belki ama doğru noktadan bakınca simetriyle buluşunca adeta filmden birer kareymiş gibi görünüyorlar.
İki gün önce 100 bin takipçi barajını geçen hesabın önü oldukça açık duruyor. Hem etkileşimle ve katılımla büyüdüğü için hem de simetrinin zerafetinden tüm anahtar kelimelerle faydalandığı için hesabın büyümesi kaçınılmaz duruyor.

It wasn't until two huge storms, first in the 1850s ripped through the city, that the Eastern Gap was formed • • Although the Coney-Island-like atmosphere on the Islands died when the Hanlan's Point Amusement Park closed up shop in the late 1920s, the area still retained a sizable residential community until the 1950s when Metro Toronto Council sought to convert the Islands into City parkland • • Over the next 20 years, numerous homes were demolished, but residents on Ward's and Algonquin Islands continued to battle the City until late 1981, when the province granted them the right to stay until 2005 • • The Island airport, which opened in 1937, has also see its fair share of controversy over the years. Like the homes, however, it's not going anywhere. With the exception of Centreville and a few other business the rest of the Islands remain tranquil parkland with ample beach areas and views of the Toronto skyline • • Know more?

#AccidentalWesAnderson Hellenic Parliament | Athens, Greece | c. 1843 • >Now back to our regularly scheduled programming< • • The Hellenic Parliament or “Old Royal Palace” (Greek: Παλαιά Ανάκτορα) is the first royal palace of modern Greece, completed in 1843. It has housed the Hellenic Parliament since 1934.

As it served originally as a palace for the Greek monarchs for about a century, it is sometimes still referred to as the "Old Palace" • • After suffering fire damage in 1909, it entered a long period of renovation. During renovations the King and his family moved to the Crown Prince's Palace, from then on known as the "New Palace", one block to the East • • In 1924, a referendum abolished the monarchy. The building was then used for many different purposes—housing a variety of government and public services in the 1920s, functioning as a makeshift hospital during World War II, a refugee shelter for Greek refugees from Asia Minor in 1922, a museum with the personal effects of King George I (now part of the collection of the National Historical Museum), and other uses • • In November 1929 the government decided that the building would permanently house Parliament. After more extensive renovations, the Senate convened in the "Old Palace" on 2 August 1934.
