Wong Kar Wai's colors

Have you heard of HK director Wong Kar Wai? Well, I'm not a fan but I like some of his movies. I spotted this in a 50+ year old herbal tea shop in Central (see this photo), these colors and the nostalgic mood surely remind me of Wong's movies. BTW, Wong's Happy Together gave me my first impression of Buenos Aires, but now of course I refer to Karine and Cynthia's photoblogs.

Nice reminding me of that movie "Happy Together", a thai friend of mine saw it not so long ago, and really enjoyed it. What are your thoughts on that movie ?

I love pictures like this--its something Im quite poor at--I never seem to see the patterns.

thank you thank you everybody, this is one of my recent favorites and I went to that shop knowing I will find something special.

Karine: "Happy Together" is more intense than moody comparing to other WKW movies, but it is a good story on the struggle of love and hate (a bit cliche here), on another note, the waterfall is magnificient...

Wolf: is it your first time here? Welcome!

ChrisH and Minitebara: I'm learning to "look" at things, so let's learn together

In the mood for love is one of my favourite films (that was wkw wans't it?) and this one captures the revival of fashion that retrospection can give. Nice pic!
