  6. That scene lends itself very well to B&W, was this at the penitentiary? (not sure that is spelled correctly!0

  9. Wow! The brick textures are like a gallery of art! Fascinating! And love the light receding to darkness on the sides! And a closed tight, weathered door in the centre, atop steep, narrow steps adds a touch of disturbing mystery! Great photo!

  17. The B&W does make this look quite ominous as well as the unknown aspect of where the door leads - great catch!

  18. Ooooh, spooky. Could be the setting for a great mystery story! Great capture!

  19. There is an air of expectation here. What? Will Death be walking through this door or it is the doorway of death? What if a clown came out of there? Wouldn't that be just as scary? HA!
