The Life of Pi Staff Favorite
The Life of Pi
The Life of Pi
The shadow of a dock cleat in the form of pi. I had another one up awhile back called "Pi Theta," which included the shadow of rope in theta form as well. This is for the PG101 action movie title theme. You might not think, perhaps, that this terrific movie would be classified as "action," but it is and definitely included lots of action as well as marvelous fantastical sequences. There's a little bug there on the right. I thought about taking him out but grew quite attached to him and didn't.

Marvelous design and detail, Mitch. I like the bug too - I'm glad you left him there! Very creative match-up for the theme.

Just wonderful! I loved the book AND the movie, and your photo is so scholarly, as well as intriguing. I agree, the bug is a further enhancement.

Terrific for the theme, Mitch (and a darned good movie, too)! The bug adds a bit more texture, so no reason to get rid of him.
