The "you can't get there from here" concept of Shell Beach in the brilliant Proyas film Dark City sort of fascinated me. Unfortunately there are no clear shots of it in the film. So I worked up a redo. BTW, I tried to track down the actual location of the image, and I'm pretty sure it doesn't exist as shown (the Harris fishery-- painted on the roof of one building is apparently long defunct). I think it's a composite from various tourist postcards. This took about 30 hours to digitally construct. I had to reduce the resolution for the web, but it's passible. I designed it as a 4x6 300 dpi postcard, which I occasionally mail out to friends. I've been thinking about making a grayscale depth map and building some 3D lenticulars.
