“I saw these things. I touched one of them. And… It wasn't some clunky steel can… like we would build. It glided. It was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. Oh, God, I wish you'd been there. It was a machine. It was a machine, but it was alive. It was like a… like a dance of light. Please. You have to trust me. Now, I don't think they mean us any harm. I don't know how I know that. It's just… a feeling”
“I know how alone you feel… alone in all that cold blackness… but I'm there in the dark with you.”

      Beautiful and I love the words. They are amazingly perfect in a mechanical seeming way. So simple and efficient.

      They look like aliens in space...Maybe that's what they are.
      Splendid colours and the pics are amazing.Too bad I missed that movie, I could rent it but it's always better on big screen

      they are in my opinion one of the most intriguing and beautiful creatures of the world, they are so transparent that it is difficult to understand how can they hide so much misterious,,,really beautiful !!

      one of the most impressive movies i've ever seen, and you are quoting two of it's key scenes. i think all divers look after this in the abyss. the light from below, the dreams come true, the unthinkable reality. all of which, when in the dark, can only shared if you trust yourself, your equipment... and those that stay back fro you on the surface.

      i love the colors of this post... :-)
