  • awesome shot, Joe! I like this view and this creepy mood really very much!

  • that sure is a wonderful capture you got there.. it’s like 2 lovers running into each other.. :)

  • this is very cool. feels almost like they are from a different time and they ended up in that spot by some fluke.

    are you familiar with the photographs of Leiko Shiga – she’s not well known but this reminds me of some of her photographs. her work was inspired by turn of the century spiritualist photographs.
