    Wealthy Crypt

    Hey all, Took this shot out in Graceland Cemetery, Chicago, IL a while back. Just found it recently again lol, and decided to post it. I'm not sure if I like the angle, just thought I'd put it up out of curiosity's sake. I can't remember the name on this family stone, or monument I...

    Hey all, Took this pic out in Graceland Cemetery, Chicago, IL. I've posted a pic of this statue before, just a new angle on it. Her eyes just look a little too life-like to me lol. Especially if you look at them for too long O.o - Quite a statue to see in real life, that's for sure lol...

    The Watcher in the Woods.

    lol Okay, let's not get in a fight over this now. Relax on the language, if you don't like the pic, fine. But that was a little unnecessary. Personally I think it's a creative idea. Kinda captures the 'nightmare' look/feel you mentioned. The 'thing' in the woods could be anything, lets you use...

    Autumn Sunset

    lol Hey all, Thanks for the critique ^^ - without it, we'd never get any better. I did mention that I know that's not a perfect picture. Thinking back on it now maybe I should've posted it in the snapshots rather than the 'Good Photos' forum lol. But either way, I do realize a lot's wrong...

    Autumn Sunset

    Hey all, Took this pic out in the country, lol. It's a little blurry, I'll admit - I don't have a tripod, so I do the best I can with certain subjects lol. I think the sunsets in the Fall and Winter are a lot more beautiful than during any other time of the year. Maybe it's just that...

    Storm (9 Pics)

    Hey all, These aren't award winning shots or anything lol but I managed to get some wild pics of the storms that came through my area yesterday and the day before. I personally didn't get hit too bad, and even in the worst places, it never got to be nasty like the weather channels were all...

    Hm. Yeah it's definitely a convo starter lol. I guess it all depends on your views. On one side, though, photography IS meant to provoke emotion. And if anything'll do it, this is it. (^: And this is probably an obvious question lol, considering your username but, is this Graceland Cemetery...
