No one does the absurd as well as Wes Anderson. No one captures the absurd as well as Wes Anderson. And certainly, no one makes you wish for the absurd as much as Wes Anderson. The American filmmaker has, in 15 or so movies, branded a style of cinema entirely his own, the eponymous verb and noun &lsquoWes Anderson&rsquo. Definition visuals with noticeable spatial symmetry, exaggerated use of saturated colours and striking architecture. 

On a photography project on Reddit, fans of the director&rsquos distinctive style came together to post real life visuals that looked like deleted scenes from Wes Anderson&rsquos movies. A slightly amateur initiative, this was taken to the (pastel blue) skies when fan Wally Koval decided to turn it into a more legitimate instagram project.

People from across the world now send in their most uncanny Wes Anderson shots from real life--of a post office that could be in a set, of colour palettes Anderson would swoon over, for example. 

The pictures are from everywhere, seats in a stadium, inside a train, of a pool, bar stools of an unusual colour.

_________________________ Costa da Caparica Mini Train Almada, Portugal c. 1960s &bull &bull Costa da Caparica is Lisbon&rsquos closest beach town, located on the southern shore of the Rio Tejo. The lively, modern town is part of the longest continuous sandy shoreline in Europe and is virtually unknown by foreign tourists. The mini train provides a public transport service connecting the main resort town of Costa de Caparica to the 30km coastline of the Setubal Peninsular during the summer months &bull &bull The towns&rsquo name &lsquoCaparica&rsquo actually comes from the legend of an old woman who wore a patchwork cape and lived between Almada and the ocean. She was assumed to be a witch who guarded a fortune. One day, villagers discovered her body and within her cape a letter to the King requesting he build a Church for the people of her village &bull &bull The King ordered the cape to be destroyed until he discovered gold coins falling from the cape - and with that money he fulfilled the women&rsquos request. From there the name Capa-Rica developed, for capa (cape) and rica (rich), which became associated with the region &bull &bull The territory was part of the parish of Caprica until 1926, when it became part of Trafaria until 1949. The urban agglomeration was classified as a town in July 1985, and elevated to the status of city on December 9th, 2004 &bull &bull The importance of the beach and sea is part of what makes the economy of Costa da Caparica function. Until the late 20th century, fishing was the primary industry, but now more so with the seasonal tourist influx &bull &bull Today, Caparica has a large immigrant population, particularly during the summer when there are an additional 7,800 residents and on average about 35,000 visitors, many of which ride the mini diesel train and its colorful carriages with wooden bench seating up and down the coast, stopping along each beach in turn &bull &bull Know more Please comment below &bull &bull ð¸ @calitainstagram &bull âÂÂÂÂÂÂï¸Â @wikipedia &bull #AccidentallyWesAnderson #WesAnderson #VscoArchitecture #Vsco #Almada #SymmetricalMonsters #Portugal #AccidentalWesAnderson #Budapest #CostaDaCaparica
