I don't know if I'll answer the door or not! :fear:

:XD:

More experiments ;) Been wanting to play with some fire for a while now--no better time than now, eh?

30 second exposure, newspaper and matches :onfire: Oh--and a bucket of water...just in case ;) It's not quite right--a little overexposed and I was hoping for more detail in the fire but despite the heated conditions it was getting cold outside :iconshiverplz:

Thanks for looking, commenting and faving :thanks:

I would slam the door shut and scream go away nobody's home.

Jokes aside it looks very good along with all your photos :hug:

You can open the door if you didn't take a gazoline shower like some people used to for protecting themself against insect of all kind (survival tech in Africa ;) ,and if you know it will be a freezing night and there's no more electricity,otherwise it is a friend i would like t have when was living in a cave

I could even see a figure in it! :) Really stunning, I love to look at it and think it on. Like what this creature might be and why would it be in front of my door. The atmosphere of this photo is not creepy at all, maybe that's why I think that I wouldn't be freaked out. :D

Definately :nod: Curse them for not noticing :shakefist: The strange thing is that most artists become popular only after death and some very popular artists go stratospheric with a good case of death but it doens't do them any good :shrug:
