- Category: Ideas & Inspiration
- Practices: Different practices
You can always tell when a man is keen to do something. That's why I was hooked on the work by British blogger Thomas Duke. Thomas is a real moviegoer. As soon as he turned 18 and began to earn money, he began to travel first around the country, and then around the world. Why? To find the filming locations of his favorite movies!

Now Thomas is 20 years old, and 10 of them he is fond of movies and keeps a viewing diary. When he had the opportunity to travel and create unusual photos, he began to share pictures on the Internet and write small notes about each film. It quickly became popular.

Why is it that people like the Thomas's works? First, he chooses films that he adores and that many people like. Secondly, you can immediately see with what love and sincerity he writes about films — it is impossible to remain indifferent! Well, thirdly, for the sake of beautiful shots, he is not afraid to seem strange :)
Thomas himself says that he feels a real delight when he manages to visit the places where his favorite movies and TV series were filmed. Looking at these photos, I understand him.

Scenes from "Harry Potter" cause a smile and nostalgia. Apparently, the creators, they also caused the brightest feelings — because they invited Thomas to the studio where the films were shot.

And some of the pictures Thomas took in Oxford. Did you know that many scenes were shot there?

It seems the Harry Potter film series is one of his favourites. And his favorite series, judging by the number of frames from there — "Doctor Who".

Thomas also did not pass by movies about superheroes.

But one thing unites them all: Thomas's love for what he does.

Now Thomas is watching new films, studying in film school and continues to photograph. Who knows, maybe in a couple of years we will watch movies of his authorship? It seems quite possible to me :)
