Ciao Moi, the noir is not my kind, but your composition is very pleasant.

Lori said...

Oooh! That's so spooky!! You are scaring us! That's a great photo though, very creative!

Annie said...

And noir films set in Chicago might even become your specialty, Moi. How are you liking it there?

Hmmm Moi,
What shall I say here, I hink I have seen the movie (not sure) so I cannot say me meaning here, about your question " dod you like the dark side of reel life" , well anyone has some dark days, sad days, days of bad luck, I believe that even the 'Dark is life', like birth and dead are also a part of my life,so yes on a special way, I can say that "looking back at the dark side's of my life" can give me joy now, but at the moment there, you'll better not in my surrounding...

Great hand and shadow.

Greetings from JoAnn (Holland)

Creepy. :)

Gawdess said...

Very nice - ghostly and effective

isabella said...

Yes, love them! From the original Asphalt Jungle to the neo-noir Chinatown to the recent Sin City.
But I'm all alone watching them...my DH insists there is enough misery in real life...

GMG said...

Used to see lots of them in the late sixties and early seventies; no longer now...
But your picture looks great: spooky!
Have a great weekend, full of nice DVDs... ;))

Terrific emotion picture Moi. I do think the dark side of "reel" life can be interesting and gripping but too much isn't uplifting and tends to weigh me down.
Hope all is well in Chicago. Its my second favorite city to visit. The photo ops. are huge. Just wait until the spring tulips bloom on the Miracle Mile part of Michigan Ave. Its the most awesome display I ever saw.

Hands up if you agree.

Nikon said...

Very creative shot, Moi.
Film noir is my favorite genre. I think "Out of the Past" is one of the best & "The Naked City." And many more :-)

Kerri said...

Oh Moi, this is a Wonderful shot!! And I LOVE Film noir!! One of my favorites: Double Indemnity...have you seen it??

Kerri said...

Oh you're a creative girl :)
I prefer upbeat films but it's good to see the other side occasionally. There's been some good ones.
I hope you're finding your new location fascinating :)

Sand said...

Moi, great shot. its cool and creepy! I enjoy the dark side as well.

I love Double Indemnity and The Asphalt Jungle, both mentioned already.

I like this photo a lot! I like the shape of your (?) fingers (very English Patient), and the weave of the fabric. Unique and memorable image. Cool!

Chad Oneil Myers said...

That truly is a scary image. If I look at it too long, I may have nightmares!!!!

Good job.

bluemountainmama said...

Steve Buser said...

I don't know about film noir, but I like the way you set this shot up. Great effect.

JAM said...

Hey, Moi. Sorry I've been so remiss in my visiting lately.

I like this, though I don't think I've ever seen an actual movie in the noir category.

Sandy said...

I learned to appreciate film noir when working through the AFI Top 100 films list. Double Indemnity was probably my favorite. Just watched a modern noir a week or so ago - L.A. Confidential.

Nice shot - lots of mystery to it.

Still said...

A lovely image! I like it a lot!
