Sometimes faking it is good enough...
You can get some really great effects at this site.
My photographs are frequently structural, somewhat sparse, and punctuated with decay.
That's not to say I have anything against sunshine or pretty girls. They just don't show up so often.
I do like bright colours though. Yes, I'm a contradiction. So is my work.
The majority of my work is available to peruse at flickr. I like the community there too much to do it any other way.
