Here in Fairbanks, Alaska, we've had -40°F to -50°F weather for about two weeks in a row and very thick ice fog. Here are some photos of the fog in the area. It's rather reminiscent of Silent Hill, don't you think?

Please forgive the black or white line that appears in most of these photos. They were taken through the windshield of my boyfriend's truck, and that is the crack in the windshield.
The fog is actually much thicker than in these photos because my camera automatically tries to clean up what it thinks is interference in pictures, thus eliminating some of the lovely and spooky mist.
I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Finally getting around to posting something!
Well, I have been gathering pictures for several months and I feel like I have enough to share with everyone.
Please go to my gallery, here! for some of my photos. Each is followed by a little blurb that tells a little about it..... There are at least another ten or so that I have yet to put in the gallery so, when I do I will certainly let you all know! Please enjoy and thanks for looking. :)

PS. My icon is also a photo I took....On my cell phone. I'll post a bigger version sometime soon.

Hi, I'm new here. The idea just seemed genius, and the moment I found the community I thought of a good few places I could take photos of. However, the weather was too miserable to persuade me to go too far, so far now enjoy what little I have. :)

I believe I have found the inspiration behind the paintings in the church in Silent Hill 3- some of the religious works of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio. Not only the almost baroque lighting style, but much of the imagery and even poses carry over astonishingly well.

I haven't found anything that looks like Birth or Faith, but the rest seem similar enough to be worth pointing out.

I took these photographs over the weekend, of an abandoned factory (at least, that's what I'm assuming it is) in Southampton, UK.

I couldn't get as close to the building as I would have liked, due to the place being fenced off and (according to signs placed on the gates) under 24-hour surveillance, so I had to take most of these pictures by holding my camera through the bars of the fence, but I think they came out okay. :)

Now for a few more photos, taken today, at the scrapyard in my local area. I have previously posted some photos of this place - most prominently the seemingly abandoned garage/house in the middle of the yard, both here & here.

The toilet - a recurring theme in Silent Hill...Collapse )

There were also lots of discarded toilets, sinks and baths all over the floor outside this building... except I didn't photograph those. Maybe next time.

Oh, man, guys...

Second Picture in this post.

Does anyone else expect to see a little girl ghosting over this place?
