Tradition

328/365

From the Midwest Gathering (check us out on the Flickr Blog !) With Cierra and Gilly

We shaved Cierra's head while in Indiana and for a day she had a mohawk. I wanted to take advantage of her punk look and came up with this. I wanted to combine the traditional and the modern, making witchcraft continuing in an underground modern society. Something like that. I'm horrible at explaining things like this.

    This is a very dark and unique perspective on witchcraft - I love the dark pillars in the background, just melting into the darkness. Everything about this is really creepy.. so good!
