Akira Kurosawa: Rashomon. Sengoku Burai. Kumonosujo. Kakushi-otide no san-akunin. Shichinin no Samurai. Yojimbo. Tsubaki Sanjuro. Tora Tora Tora. Kagemusha. Ran. Runaway Train. Last Man Standing. This is by no means the complete list. This is only the ones I've seen. Go. Enjoy.
Alice: As, In Wonderland. My introduction to surrealism. Thank you, Lewis Carroll / Charles Dodson.
Amusement parks: Because Amusement Parks have Roller Coasters!
Ansel Adams: No, I won't count that as two 'A' entries. Not mine exclusively of course, but one of the most influential photographers I know of and have studied.
AORN: the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses. Because (amongst many other reasons) every patient deserves a Registered Nurse as their Circulating Nurse in surgery. The work which this professional association of RN's does on behalf of all RN's practicing in the perioperative area is vital for patient safety, quality of care, and staff safety.
Apples: No, not the computer (though I've used them) nor the record company (though I've listened to their releases). The ones which come off the trees. Sometimes just as they are, off the trees, but usually, baked into pies. Mmmmmm, apple pie. Or apple brown betty. Mmmmmmmm.
Architecture: Once upon a time, I thought I might be an architect. Now, I simply enjoy photographing and viewing good architecture. Well, and bad too, sometimes. So that I may know the difference.
Art: While there are particular media I mostly work with, it is art in all the many glorious, beautiful, delirious renditions. Sometimes all of the above, often disturbing, occasionally great.
Asia: The Far East. The Mysterious Orient. The Pacific Rim. Damn, I'm talking in generalities here, but it's a big place and while I may know more about certain parts, there isn't any of it that isn't fascinating to me.
Australia: The Lucky Country. I've wanted to travel there since I first learned about Oz, and no I don't mean the one Frank Baum wrote about. I mean the one Henry Lawson and Banjo Patterson wrote about. Well, maybe not quite the one they wrote about, as that one's history now. OK, all you Aussies on my FList, now you know... I am stalking you, but only in a most friendly manner.
PS Kiwis, y'all aren't safe either. Y'all are part of Down Under. Besides, y'all treated me and mine right hospitable when we were there.
Okay, who's next? Only if you're interested.
