When inspiration hits,  it tends to hit hard.

For weeks now I have been trying to decide on a theme for a small exhibition in july., and coming up blank.
Do I go with safe landscapes,  eventhough every local photographer does those (quite a bit better than I do)?   Do I try to depict local life through portraits of the town's more colourful characters?  Do I go with a wildlife theme which was relatively popular at the last exhibition?   Or something completely different?

Today it hit me. Do what you love!  What do I love?  Photographing people.  Black and white photos. Old-style gothic horror movies. Surrealism. Things that make you look twice or think twice.
I haven't tried putting these things together into one photo, so it's time to jump in the deep end.

The concept:
Each photo will have two versions, one dark, one light.
The dark side will be black and white images with a surreal horror theme. The opposing light images will be full colour, depicting similar scenes but without the horror elements.

Here's hoping it works!
