Shine On You Crazy Diamond

All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

(Rutger Hauer in Blade Runner)

Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet.

What a wonderful post! Well done, Dominic.

Beautiful quote (Rutger Hauer). I enjoyed Blade Runner so very much back in the 80's that I still remember leaving the theatre after watching it for the first time and go straight to a record shop to by the soundtrack.

Thank you JM!
It's a great movie indeed. I first watched Blade Runner a few years ago, and back when it was filmed (1982) it was set in the remote future, but now, this future (the year 2019) isn't so far away. It's fascinating to compare what the filmmakers thought the future would look like / how they imagined people to live with what our lives are like right now.

Fantasic shots! They almost make me feel sad... like ghosts of the past are the ones crying on the stone.

That's an interesting interpretation!
