Accidentally Wes Anderson es el Instagram que es mejor que las pelis de Wes Anderson

No hay escapatoria: te vas a enamorar del Instagram de Accidentally Wes Anderson y su colección de fotones mejores incluso que las pelis del director.

 

Diferenciemos dos conceptos totalmente diferentes… Por un lado tenemos los fenómenos espontáneos y desordenados que se están dando en los últimos años en redes sociales como Instagram o Twitter cuando un hashtag aglutina un esfuerzo generalizado pero también caótico por centrar la atención en un tema en concreto. Y otra cosa muy diferente es cuando ese tema concreto está filtrado y comisariado por algo o alguien, por una comunidad que da orden y sentido al mencionado caos. Pues, bien, Accidentally Wes Anderson viene a ser algo así como el ejemplo pluscuamperfecto del segundo caso.

Porque puede ser que hayas visto en Instagram el hashtag #AcidentallyWesAnderson, pero no te engañes: todo este tinglado está montado alrededor de la cuenta @AccidentallyWesAnderson… Y, a tenor de lo visto, no todo cabe en esa cuenta. Ni mucho menos. Se intuye que hay un trabajo de comisariado y concepto realmente profundo dentrás. Un concepto que, por si todavía no te has dado cuenta, es tan sencillo pero a la vez tan elevado como rastrear el imaginario de las películas de Wes Anderson en el mundo real: conseguir configurar una colección de fotos de diferentes usuarios que se han topado con paisajes y lugares dignos de “Moonlight Kingdom” o “El Gran Hotel Budapest“.

Para empezar, observarás que rara vez salen figuras humanas en las fotos de Accidentally Wes Anderson y que, cuando lo hacen, es de forma incidental. Así que olvídate de enviarles tus selfies de las vacaciones… Porque es que no te lo van a publicar. Ni de coña. Además, subrayando su labor documentalista -y casi enciclopédica-, todos las fotos que aparecen en el Instagram de Accidentally Wes Anderson van acompañados de textos destinados a explicar las peculiaridades de los lugares fotografiados, casi siempre de interés histórico, geográfico o artístico.

Repetimos: lo más probable es que las fotos de tus vacaciones no acaben nunca en Accidentally Wes Anderson… Pero eso no te impide seguir esta maravillosa cuenta para deleitar tus ojos con todos y cada uno de los fotones que publican, siempre tan simétricos, siempre con tantos colorinchis, siempre en sintonía con la Europa de Zweig. Siempre tan Wes Anderson, claro. [FOTO: @_jameswong] [Más información en la web de Accidentally Wes Anderson y en su cuenta de Instagram]

________________________ Lake Lugano Navigation Company | Lugano, Switzerland | c. 1873 • • The Società Navigazione del Lago di Lugano or 'Lake Lugano Navigation Company' (SNL) is a Swiss company established in 1873 to operate passenger services on Lake Lugano – a glacial lake situated on the border between southern Switzerland and northern Italy • • Formerly known as the Società di Navigazione e Ferrovie per lago di Lugano (SNF), the company was formed to construct and operate a transport link from Menaggio, on Lake Como, to Luino, on Lake Maggiore, via Lugano. Although both ends of this link were in Italy, the company was created with Swiss finance, and registered in Lugano • • Previous plans were to build a railway throughout, but difficulties in financing the proposal and the substantial engineering works that would be required, led to the revised plan which was eventually implemented. This involved the construction of two unconnected railways, both entirely located within Italy • • The outbreak of World War I lead to a considerable loss of traffic and financial problems, and the SNF decided to sell its railways and concentrate on operating its steamboat services on Lake Lugano. The lines were sold to the Società Varesina per le Imprese Elettriche (SVIE) in 1919, and after the sale, the company changed its name to the present day SNL • • By 1926, SNL was operating nine passenger steamboats on Lake Lugano, including six paddle steamers and three screw steamers, together with two cargo motor vessels. A year later, the passenger motor vessel ‘Lugano' was introduced, and this vessel is still in service today, having been renamed ‘Milano’ in 1961. The last paddle steamers in the fleet were retired in 1962 • • Know more?

________________________ Lifeguard Stand | Warnemünde, Germany | c. 1960s • • Warnemünde (German pronunciation: [vaʁnəˈmʏndə], literally 'Mouth of the Warnow') is a seaside resort and a district of the city of Rostock in Mecklenburg, Germany. It is located on the Baltic Sea and, as the name implies, at the estuary of the river Warnow. Warnemünde is one of the busiest cruise ports in the world • • Founded in about 1200, the small fishing village had minor importance for the economic and cultural development of the region. In 1323 Warnemünde lost its autonomous status as it was purchased by the city of Rostock in order to safeguard the city's access to the Baltic Sea. It was not until the 19th century that Warnemünde began to develop into an important seaside resort • • The first bathers enjoyed the area in 1817 when beaches were strictly separated by gender, and in 1882 the first beach chairs made their premier. Today, the 5km section of the beach known as Warnemünde Strand has 7 rescue stations where a total of up to 25 lifeguards are on duty during the season, welcoming over 100,000 beach visitors • • Warnemünde Tower 3 is the main tower, fully equipped like an ambulance with any medical euqipment that might be needed during an emergency. From here, 6 other rescue stations are coordinated and supported as needed by a crew with a rescue buggy • • Once completely dependent on the fishing industry, Warnemünde's economic alignment shifted over the years. Today, besides the Nordic Yards ship yard, the economy largely depends on tourism. The construction of a modern cruise line centre in 2005 has contributed crucially to Warnemünde's establishment as the most important harbour for cruise line ships in Germany • • Know more?

The original owner, Mrs. Sandoe, agreed to sell the land for $250 an acre – including a contribution of the 2½ acres where her log cabin stood (just above the ninth green) under one condition • • Mrs. Sandoe had become accustomed to calling the area “Elmwood”, and if the club would adopt that name, she would agree to provide them with the full extent of the land. The parties agreed, and the "Elmwood Country Club" came into being • • In June 1919 the golf course was completed, and the clubhouse finished two months later. Seventeen ‘Life Memberships' were sold at $500 each during the first year, and by 1921 when the golf course opened, another 74 had been sold • • Today the 18-hole course at the Elmwood Country Club facility features 5,758 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 70.

________________________ Gasparilla Inn & Club | Boca Grande, Florida | c. 1911 • • The Gasparilla Inn is one of the largest surviving resort hotels in Florida. Located on Boca Grande Island, it was constructed originally for wealthy northerners during the time when the state became a travel and vacation destination • • On February 21, 1909, officers of the Boca Grande Land Company decided to construct a resort hotel on the island. Construction of what was first known as ‘The Hotel Boca Grande’ was near completion by January of 1911, and later that year it opened as a small two-story building with 20 rooms available for the exclusive use of visiting directors and company • • The Inn’s owners soon built a casino south of the main building for parties and nightly entertainment. Tennis courts were later built, along with a bandstand, a beach club, and a greenhouse installed to supply The Inn with flowers • • The hotel immediately became a great success. The Pelican Room, was built around 1932 for use by the Pelican Club members to share fishing stories, shoot billiards and at the end of Prohibition, enjoy a cocktail. The Inn would have no public cocktail lounge until after World War II • • In the early 1980s, owner Bayard Sharp and his brother traded waterfront property on the island for the abandoned railroad right-of-way, which they donated for use as a bicycle path for island guests and residents. Sharp continued improvements of the resort, and in 1997 created a trust to ensure The Inn would be maintained and run as a working hotel even after his death • • Today, The Inn consists of 137 rooms, 63 in the main Inn and 74 in the surrounding cottages.

________________________ Woody Point Lighthouse | Newfoundland, Canada | c. 1959 • • The Woody Point Lighthouse is a 7.3-metre square, tapered, wooden tower, clad with shingles and a typical square wooden lantern. Constructed in 1959 to replace the original 1919 light, this lighthouse is located on a grassy Knoll overlooking the south arm of Bonne Bay, on the edge of the town of Woody Point in Newfoundland, Canada • • The region around what later became Woody Point was launched as an important fishing area after the signing of the Treaty of Utrecht, in 1713, allowing France to fish off the west coast of Newfoundland, but not to settle. The region came to be known as the French Shore • • The original harbour lighthouse provided navigational aid to the fishing community and the present light continues to act as a navigational aid. Surrounded by Gros Morne National Park, it is an important landmark from both land and water • • The tower has a classic square wooden lantern supported in a streamlined manner by the tower walls. The architectural pattern was the preferred design of the Department of Marine and Fisheries in the 19th century and beyond. The “tower with a superimposed gallery” is one of seven variations on the design • • The lighthouse sits on the edge of a rocky cliff, on a grassy, sparsely treed headland, called Crawley Head, where it is accessible by a short path from town and is a focal point for the community and is featured on the town logo • • Woody Point Lighthouse is a reminder of Newfoundland’s history of outport communities, as well as the town’s history as the former centre of commerce for the Northwest coast. The community is thought to have more heritage buildings than any other town of its size in Canada. The lighthouse is considered “a treasured landmark” by community residents • • Know more?
