This won the Dark Art for Artist/Band Album Cover challenge in the Dark Poetry and Art group

I shot this in the woods, Middlebury, Indiana USA. 4/19/2010. Shot this with my fujifilm finepix S1000 fd. I used spotlight effect, cartoon effect, and changed hue to red in Gimp.

At last alone, his fire’s dying
Burned another day
Now to pretend and make up an ending
Somewhere far away

He reached for a book all bound in leather
Something that he knows he’s never read
And the first page says beware
You’ve found the answer
The next one says I wish that you were dead

Don’t go out, put it back
You’re reading from the Bible Black
(black, black, black …)

What’s this word I see
Who are you and who are me
Maybe I just stumbled in the dark
I must have been out cold
But the way the story’s told
They found me lying naked in the rain yeah

Let me go I’ve seen a vision
But the line has left me blind
Take me back, I must have the Bible Black

Well here I go again
From the start to the end
I wish I could remember what I’ve done

Let me go I’ve found addiction
and it makes me feel alive
Take me back I must have the Bible Black


He locks himself away and tastes the silence
Hungry for another bite of wrong
and just the words oh Lord please take me with you
Took him to a place we don’t belong

Let him go he can’t come back
He’s reading from the Bible Black
(black, black, black …)

So if your fine with dying
and what’s the use of trying
you’re reading from the Bible Black


dark art, forests, nature, red, trees

I love to capture photos of everything. My favorite things to take photos of are nature, fall, and big cats. I hope one day big cats can be free to roam again. They deserve to be free like us.

    Very dramatic work Gene. Brings back lots of memories of our fires of recent years.

  • I didn’t want it to do that. i was just trying to make something different. Thanks Rosie

    Oh gene, those memories will always be smouldering, and in fact being born in Australia, I can tell you I have grown up with memories of repeated tragedies like that.The ones last year were something else though. Purely hellish…and you have captured that here .I think it is so important not to forget those events and traumas and to learn from them so we don’t let them happen so easily again.

  • True. Sorry you have had to go through stuff like that. Glad you made it through my friend.
