The original photograph, taken by photographer ggia and featured on Wikimedia is of a Bulgarian village called Zlatograd. I wanted to create a picture that looked as if it had been painted on wood so I added textures from Shadowhouse Creations and used Photoshop to make blending adjustments, as well as to remove any vestige of modern life. The end result has an atmosphere that reminds me of the village in Roman Polanski’s cult comic horror from 1967, Dance of the Vampires, hence the title!
