Since the 52 finished (and despite coming nowhere near completing it) I’ve a head full of images but not had time to do much with them. Another month seems to have disappeared without the aid of a time machine and Halloween is fast approaching.
Whilst (being relly English) Halloween has never been a major event, it seems to increase in popularity every year, so it’s never far from the back of your mind, and even though when I started this image it wasn’t supposed to be scary or spooky, it kind of ended up like that somehow.
Imagine my delight when the humdrum and otherwise normal Thursday evening of pointless TV was interrupted by the discovery of a dead fly.
Armed with the off camera flash, wireless triggers ant a 12mm Kenko Tube, I first drew some stick like pictures and posed the corpse. You know the stuff, staircases, horses etc.
None of these were particularly good, so I just tried different angles for the flash, at different power settings until I came up with this.
Can’t be bothered to do much processing so you get it here in all it’s dead, and decaying glory….. Quite like the ‘expression on it’s poor dead face.
