That looks quite freaky to me whatever that is :P

Mojo said...

My guess: Overhead shot of a woman at the shore, just at the edge of the waterline. Looks like maybe she got caught by a wave she wasn't expecting to come up so high.

What is this?

Bonny said...

This is really neat! It looks like a blown up newspaper photo, where you get all those rough pixels. Hmm... wonder what the headlines would be to accompany this photo???

Well done!!

liza said...

I can see a woman walking on the sand. Am I right?

Happy WW.

Sue said...

Definitely freaky looking! I like :)

Happy WW and thanks for visiting :)

It's a still from the very eerie and brilliant 60s horror film Carnival of Souls, I believe. It's well worth a look if your taste runs to unusual and atmospheric horror cinema.

Carver said...

That's so interesting. At first I thought it was a photograph of someone on the beach and then I realized it was canvas.

Kathy said...

HUMMMM! strange!

Mama Duck said...

I like all the speculation ;). Thanks for sharing!

Maddy said...

Little girl in the waves!

Ms. Foodie said...

I thought it was something creepy, but when I looked really close, it's a girl on a shore.

Thanks everyone. The exhibition had a screen showing clips from apocalyptic and eerie films. I took a few shots and I sort of like dthis one.

Egg you are quite right!

Renegade Eye said...

Very "decisive moment."

J@n!ce said...

It looks kinda haunting to me :)

Lori said...

Great shot. I had to look twice but now I see the little girl in the water. I wasnt sure what she was doing at first. Happy WW:)

Indrani said...

A different shot again!
You always have us thinking!
Happy WW! :)

julie said...

Looks like an old woman on a snow-covered ground to me but of course, I read your explanation :)

Bridget said...

Wow, this is really interesting!
Happy WW!

That's a beautiful print, it has both the apocalyptic qualities but also a serenity to it. And the grainy texture adds to both effects.

it's not technically part of WW, but you might like the Dystopia photo exhibit I reviewed this weekend.

It does look scary, not knwoing what is happening to the woman.
Happy WW!

maiylah said...

Thanks everyone

Alice said...

Yes, very 'odd', and yet... there is a certain 'something' about it. Very interesting, Jams.

Gattina said...

Is that a special exposition ? I only see an old woman, I am not even sure it's a painting. Anyway nothing for my living room, lol !

BTW Kim hadn't her hair cut (poor thing) but brushed ! All this fur laying on the floor came out by brushing ! She never lets me do it myself. She is very shy.

Shannon said...

For some reason that picture brings to mind the horror movie The Ring. Would love to see it in person.

Robin said...

I'm guessing she's walking at the edge of the water, but it sure looks as if she's floating.

Very cool.

SandyCarlson said...

Neat shot, Jams.

Scriber's Web said...

Cool shot! I'd love to go to tate someday.

Heart of Rachel said...

I'm not sure about the explanation behind this shot but it's intriguing.

Princess Vien said...

I like how the wave seems to be going uphill. Rather disorienting.

jams o donnell said...

Thanks everyone

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Creepy indeed.

Very haunting. Looks like a terrible scene from a war zone.
