Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge – Open Topic

050714-black-and-white-41Cee’s Black and White Challenge this week is Open Topic, I have this image that I took a few days ago and have been working on for a little while. It’s a little dark, gloomy, and goth, it seems when I have spent several days up to my eyebrows in cuteness with little kids and newborns, I tend to resort to something a little more dramatic for my own art. There was something about this building when I first saw it, and yes the dress and wings are really there, I did not add them! I have a muted color version as well.

unknownI have not really done anything to the original, about from removing some pipe work and a light which was distracting. I just love the brickwork and the wings, so stark and unexpected. The window has a vague shape, perhaps there is someone standing there watching?

Happy snapping………..and embrace the strange, unusual and beautiful; for we are ALL individuals
