    Was it shot through the spyhole? We viewers stand in the same place the prison guards stand. And, like guards, we can only imagine some movement out of our look.

    Right, PixeLuz, it was taken through the spyhole of the closed cell door.

    All the best & safe travels,

    Great and a strong image, Fritsch! I wonder what it would look like if seen from the inside of the prison. Anyway, I like that you took this shot from a different perspective which I would have not thought of. Thanks for sharing.

    a big bug eye looking straight at you. nice one.

  7. The eerie feel I get from this image sends chills down my spine. There is such a strong sense of being watched, and I can’t quite put my finger on the reason why. Got my head spinning here with intrigue and mystery and I love that!

    so dramatic…stare at this for a while and you really get the feel that someone, sometime, will walk past our cell. outstanding!
