The opening scene to a suspense thriller, and the sound of footsteps crunching a pathway through the snow comes from the right hand side. Enter the figure of a man, thick overcoat held at the neck by a gloved leather hand, spectacles and a smart grey hat. He turns inwards and walks up the staircase, his left hand clutching a dark brown briefcase. He turns momentarily and glances backwards, before placing a key in the lock and entering the building. The camera pans slowly inwards from across the street, and two gunshots ring out in the cold air.........
This photograph has so much suspense and drama. Atmospheric beyond belief. A jewel of a shot. I love it

I have to agree with Paul. The mood is set in the contrast and texture. Very atmospheric. Wonderful image.

Unbelievable snow fall...the flakes are huge.
Love this old structure. It has so much character.

Mais il ne s'arrête jamais de neiger chez toi ! Ces flocons procurent le grain et la tonalité si particulière de tes photos. J'adore !

looks like there's a possessed person in there, and the exorcist will come walking up any moment :)

Somebody used the term "gritty" to describe this shot. I agree, and that it's really good. As usual.
How do you do it?
29 Dec 2008 12:00pm
beautifull b&w, winter capture
29 Dec 2008 12:02pm
Very discretely too, I love this ;)

You really do have the most amazing eye for these shots - can I follow you around one day if I come to visit - just so that I can observe and learn a little bit?

From what I understand, it doesn't snow that much in Vancouver. But it looks like you know exactly how to shoot in it. There is a very deep mood to the shot, and it does look suspenseful. Very good series you're doing.

A very dramatic moody shot, Wonderfully captured and processed

Beautiful tones on this hotel image. Almost feels like it's abandoned in a way. =D
29 Dec 2008 6:05pm

Another great caught in the snow picture, this time no people though must be in the hotel :) But a stark, moody picture filled with atmosphere. I like it.
29 Dec 2008 7:14pm

Excellent! I love the contrast!

Beautiful... mysterious... and sad, too...

When seeing the photo of Vancouver, brings wonderful memories to me of a summer of trip by that part of Canada. The black and white one obtained is perfect. I like the saturated black good. Thanks to happen through fotosqueimportan and to comment. I will continue visiting your blog, that truly I have liked.

Terrific capture. I agree about the stark and moody effect. Not my idea of a winder wonderland.
30 Dec 2008 1:11am
Great image...holds a lot of tension and mystery although I can't quite articulate why. Gorgeous work, as always!
30 Dec 2008 1:58am
Very nice. Love what you have done here. The contrast is beautiful :)
30 Dec 2008 4:08am
Great ambiance, great snow, great picture. This hotel looks sinister !
30 Dec 2008 3:45pm
I adore this photograph, first of all for the physical emotion, of course I feel the cold, the climate all that thanks to your B&W, your framing. But I like even more the psychic emotion, of the stars snow which fall from the sky, and like these travellers in this hotel, are only of passages in the city Bravo ;)

I haven't seen real snow yet this year :-( but I would like to!
30 Dec 2008 7:21pm
Lot's of compelling images posted since my last visit. I especially love the street scenes like this one, but I'm commenting selectively in my effort to catch up.

You are one great photographer! All combined with great creativity and humanity. I know I've said many times (I think) but never mind repeat ... You are a role model for me! Your pictures are all an incredible strength. So it is with your words! I ask you not leave us! It is a pleasure and a great incentive to follow the "red. " With all my love and admiration Happy New Year full of love and life! Cheers! A hug, Adela
