Another image from Merritt’s (seehttp://thedailygrunge.com/2012/10/26/faded-gentility/). This unique establishment has an authentic southern charm. I spotted this wooden cross, with a couple of twisted nails at the appropriate juncture, giving the illusion of a dead Jesus. Juxtaposed with jars of pickles and some old books, the overall affect almost made me drop my camera. Opportunities for photos like this don’t come up very often!
This was one of those rare shots where you know, as soon as you click the shutter, that you’ve captured something special. One of those shots that I barely had to edit, just a vignette and a border, plus damping down the colors. Otherwise, all I needed to do was get out of the way and let the atmosphere just shine through.
