It's a long weekend here in Canada!! Happy (Queen) Victoria day! 👑
If anyone is a fan of Studio Ghibli or knows of Hayao Miyazaki's work I think they'd know how beautiful all of his animations are.
Something of Miyazaki that's been an inspiration to me is his time to carefully include quiet inaction scenes. Scenes where the characters aren't doing much of anything - looking off into the distance, sitting quietly, or in this screengrab: walking along the side of the bathhouse wall. These are breathers and I truly appreciate the mundane that's incorporated into his films.
Shout out to @instaghibli
who actually posted this shot a long time ago (2016!!) I fell in love with it again and had to rewatch the film several nights ago. Who knows where this is from??
