In darkness, cerdwin flanagan paints Templum with light

On her Flickr profile, painter and photographer cerdwin flanagan describes her photographic interests as follows: "My subject matter is usually dark and twisted. If you have an aversion to blood and pain and beasts and nightmares, I'm not your girl."

Indeed. Consider yourself warned. Despite the fact that blood and pain are not my thing, I have been drawn to the dark photographs she has added to the Templum ex Obscurum - A NPIRL photographic challenge pool, not so much because of the restraint she has shown with her use of light, but because of the way she paints and defines her images with it.

Here, cerdwin took this self portrait by Baron Grayson, the creator of the extraordinary Templum ex Obscurum, and amended it to her liking, per the rules of the SL-picture-pile-ups group

This photograph was taken long before the NPIRL photographic challenge... even before Templum was placed at its current location. Apparently, Baron Grayson had rezzed a chair in the ballroom


As always, many thanks to Cuwynne Deerhunter for allowing us to mob the sim he is guardian and owner of for days on end.
