Whispered prayers our last resort…

Was not sure if I was going to get around to posting today, but what the hell!  Might as well post this Judas Priest (the song Night Crawler in particular) inspired dark URBEX shot.  It’s a  freakish looking beasty, and certainly not something I’d like to run into in this old Sanatorium in the middle of the night.  This dark creature also reminded me of some of the scary things I used to encounter in my man-cave, with all the lights out and 5.1 theater sound banging loud all about me, while running through the fear inducing levels of such classic games as Doom, Quake, Resident Evil and Silent Hill.

Rose of Arimathea

Today’s shot is another night shot (HDR) from Paris, this time from the amazing summit of the butte Montmartre, the highest point in the city.  We spent a few hours up here but, come night fall, my family and the friends traveling with us wanted to get back to the hotel to recharge for the next day’s adventure.  Me?  Not on your life!  I decided to stay and shoot some night photography, starting with this cool place.  I shot the image in my last post on the blog, Chevaliers de Sangreal, the same night, by the way.  I think it only fitting that I should have listened to the beautifully haunting Rose of Arimathea, also from the Da Vinci Code soundtrack, for inspiration.  Take a listen.  I think you might agree it works well with tonight’s image.

Chevaliers de Sangreal

Hey folks!  Just got back from an amazing family trip to France (with some good friends along as well) and, while not a photography trip, I did manage to come home with some pretty decent shot.  I’ve decided to share one of my favorites from Paris with you today, in this Hans Zimmer inspired ‘Chevaliers de Sangral’; the song is the 13th track in Zimmer’s fantastic Da Vinci Code soundtrack.  Very moving music, and perfect for the quiet evening I spent at The Louvre (breathtaking museum!) shooting the fantastic pyramids there.  While I captured the larger pyramid in it’s entirety in my “tourist” shot, I also decided to shoot the scene in a way I had not yet seen on the internet for the blog; sometimes it’s not what you show that’s interesting, but rather what you don’t show that grabs the viewer, don’t you think?
