This picture was part of a photo challenge which was not just about the photographs but also about providing captions for other people’s work. So here are a three of my favourites:
“That’s life. Whichever way you turn, fate sticks out a foot to trip you.” (Jason Nvrmore)
“One terrifying night, Gregor Samsa woke up on the windshield of his car and realized he has changed into a large mosquito.” (Tomasz Lasek)
“Dana felt fuzzy, but knew they would need serious Photoshop skills to remove this problem.” (Tony Tulloch)

“She was nothing special. Every head in the bar did not turn, dazzled by her length of leg, flaunt of bosom or swing of butt. But to him she was everything. He emerged from anxiety like a butterfly to the sun.”
The quote is from Larry Beinhart’s, No One Rides For Free, the first of three Tony Cassella mysteries, one of my all-time favourites. The picture is part of my Noir series, though probably not part of the narrative; this is my contribution for Paula’s Thursday’s Special – this week, it’s female.
Noir | parts 4 and 5
When I posted a couple of these pictures before, they appeared in a slightly different context. Adding a new picture today obviously changes the narrative. So I feel I can live with the repetition – and I hope you don’t mind.
Tip: Clicking on the NOIR link in the header menu will take you to a page I set up to present the pictures on a darker background, which looks more ‘cinematographic’ to me. At least, it seems to highlight the scarce lights.
