6/359 +1

Oh, why am I doing this to myself, why did I join the Daily Challenge flickr group? Today’s prompt was film noir, meaning black film. This type of cinema was generally centralized around a private eye, in a dark room, with his name on the glass window and his dame always lurking about in a cloud of smoke.

Ok, this was not easy to recreate. I came up with several ideas; go over to the dock this evening and take shots under the street lights or head over to the boardwalk where, hopefully, the ocean would be creating a mist. I could not muster the energy for either of these ideas. So I opted for a shot at home by our bar. I am not really pleased with this shot but it will have to do for now.

Back to the question of why I joined this particular flickr group, because it is fun, it pushes me to move out of my comfort zone and to learn more about this art of photography. I will have to attempt this film noir again at a later date.
