Mark Kelso (Amhakia) shares with us his vision of Dracula’s castle inspired by the classic black and white horror films. One of the standout features of this shot has got to be the visible rays of light piercing through the window. The interior is disheveled without being messy.

Love the composition, photography and sentiment. It’s always nice when photographers and artists like Marco Pece (udronotto) use LEGO in their work. It’s worth checking out the rest of his photostream. Not exactly purist, but a lot of fun stuff.

Chris McVeigh (powerpig) is posting an advent calendar of spectacular photos throughout the month of December. Check this gallery often to see what’s new each day. In my opinion these photos would make for some excellent greeting cards.

With Halloween approaching, Douglas Hill creates a chilling mosaic that uses so many shades of colors that I lost my head trying to keep track of them all. Can you identify all the brick colors that were used? I’ll bet it ain’t easy. Thanks for the tip Chip Philson! ;)
