Got Dracula?


St. Mary's Cemetery- Whitby, England
Whitby is a central location in Bram Stoker's novel Dracula.
He vacationed there while writing the novel- Clearly a place full of inspiration.
When we visited there six years ago I was more worried about being done in by the 199 steps I had to climb to get to St. Mary's church than I was about being bit on the neck.

AWESOME!!! I love it...the B&W composition is very gothic...sweet grain in the shot adds even more to the timelessness of it. Great job!

That sky. Impending doom of that sky bespeaks. Of fallen angels, terror in the night below that sky.
