Fear of the Dark

Tribute to Iron Maiden?  Slightly with the title.

I admit this is boring to some extent but I have been trying for about 6 months to get this shot or one damn similar to it.  Parking on the bottom level of the building I always thought the lights looked cool as you slope up to the next level.  I have tried with 3 different cameras until I finally did it on a whim with my 5DMKII and it nailed it or I had a moment of serendipity.  I knew it was going to be black and white to begin with but as I started to edit I liked how I more or less blackened everything else and the areas that are lighted and in particular the lights going up have weird shadows.  It was completely what I had in mind when I first envisioned this picture months ago.  So I’m giddy right now.

  1. Interesting picture. I hope it is not that dark walking in that garage. That would be scary.
