Day 247 – Suspicious Minds

I like dark and moody photos, I guess who doesn’t. There’s some kind of suspicion and intrigue hidden behind the lens or even just inferred by it. I think it might be one advantage photography has over film. With film dark and moody means scary a lot of the time, maybe its the movement and the unknown element of where that movement will go. Or the scary music, that crescendo’s at just the pivotal moment. Scary movies have always been popular, but for those that don’t like them a photograph can provide some of that dark and dangerous atmosphere without the fear. Then again is that even a contradiction in terms?

Quotes for today:

“My wife was afraid of the dark… then she saw me naked and now she’s afraid of the light” – Rodney Dangerfield

“My sorrow, when she’s here with me, thinks these dark days of autumn rain are beautiful as days can be; she loves the bare, the withered tree; she walks the sodden pasture lane” – Robert Frost
