The Beginning: A Mostly Wildcard Adventure

A mischievous elf amongst the vines

The gate creaks.

It is indeed, the gothest of gates

A threatening note.

A place of worship, or a place of business? You decide

A ghost town?

THE TRUE HORROR UNVEILED!!!

There are even gargoyles. This seems promising for our vampire theory

Inexplicable.

Followed by the sublime:

The Rest: Civilization at Last: Or So It Seems















We escape to normalcy.

We turn the corner:

The horror! This is worse than vampires!

I assuage myself with meta-portraiture. Bonus fun: Can you spot our humble photographess and her photo competition partner?

Still intellectually upset over the misuse of Greek letters, I turn to cynicism.

STILL unsatisfied, I must be consoled with chocolate and lemon-bars. All better.

Photographers, would you take a look?

It looks as a worthwhile photographic completion, but there are no votes yet. It slipped through the cracks or am I missing something? Maybe the competition part is not really there?
Or is it submitted to the wrong task? More like a Dérive? There is a journey there...
I liked it, anyway, so vote, but there is an uneasiness about it that I can´t pinpoint.

I must confess to being confused. Nobody voted for it, so you aren't going to vote for it?

The logic, it hurts my brane.

Sorry about that, mine was a case of forgetting to hit the vote button :(
