"A" is for Arson by wchild "A" is for Arson by wchild

I read on the newspaper about a house which had burned down last friday in my hometown of Kemi, Finland. The news coverage revealed enough details for me to easily find the location. It was kinda spooky out there and as I left, I noticed a POLICE LINE - DO NOT CROSS tape on the gate. Wonder if it was an arson!

This is a HDR out of six gloomy exposures taken in the garden.

Available as HDR workshop!

Hi there, you have done extremely well in not only capturing the the beauty within such a sad image, but the overwhelming sense of hopelessness and even neglect, the chaos and furious rage of fire all but spent, yet the wake or dawning of its devastation, left behind like a carcass eroding in the remoteness of some desolate place.
Thank you very much for opening my eyes to this rapture of hidden beauty, thank you, cheers, Mike.

Thank you for your kind words and support. This place is very close to where I live so maybe that's why there was perhaps more input into the making of an image than there usually is. =)

Hi there, sometimes people see so many different things in the exact same image, this kind of thing always fascinates me as to how strong the impact of a simple image can be, take care and thank you, cheers, Mike.
