What's in this Basement?

    "What I'm about to tell you might scare you. To death."
    "I can take it."
    "Dr. Charles Montgomery built this house, and here in this basement is where he worked. Charles was a doctor to the stars, but he was also a drug addict. And his wife Nora wasn't going to let that get in the way of her lifestyle, so she set up a little secret side business. He would take care of girls who didn't want to be in trouble anymore. This went on and on, until one day, one girl couldn't keep the secret to herself, and she told her boyfriend what happened. The boyfriend wanted revenge, so he kidnapped Charles' and Nora's baby. Terrified, the doctor and his wife waited desperately for the ransom demands. The police came one night, a box of evidence in their hands. As Charles peered inside the box, jars of small limbs and body parts flooded the box. Driven insane by grief, the doctor used all of his experience in surgical skills to try and cheat death. What he created was ungodly and monstrous, and even after their tragic end, that thing remained down here to this day."

    I'm only a bit obsessed with American Horror Story.

      This is a fantastic location. I'm loving the soft light and the mood for this shot. I think the only thing I'd change is the cropping. I'd have moved the model just a little farther off center -- closer to the upper right corner so that all the focal lines point there. That said, still an awesome shot. Great work with the color and toning.

      This is one of those photos that makes you realize how much differently photographers look at the world. I mean, to anyone else this spot would probably be just a pretty house. But you created something amazing out of it, which I just think is so cool!

      Great story teller! Beautifully written, and that photo is so captivating. Also, I'm an "American Horror Story" fan. I didn't think I'd like the show that much, but the cast! Their the one's who keep me coming back, season after season! Can't wait for "Freak Show" set to premiere on October 8, 2014.
