The Killer Christmas. by DavidTalley The Killer Christmas. by DavidTalley
I went up to Mt. Baldy over the weekend, and had one of the greatest days of my life playing in the snow with my best friends, shooting photos with numb hands, and warming up afterwards with hot chocolate. This photo was inspired by my incessant need to sharpen every candy cane I eat to the point of dagger-dom. I don't understand myself, nor why I do this to the obviously innocent and cheerful canes. What is my life?

Model: Mary Pettygrove (Who was a total trooper, posing in the freezing cold. She didn't even fuss when the candy canes got stuck in her hair, and subsequently didn't fuss when I pulled them out, haha)

On flickr.

Also, I totally keep forgetting to mention this, but I made a twitter! I'm still figuring it out, but I'd love to see you guys over there.

The Killer Christmas. by ~DavidTalley is a very compelling photograph where evidence of poignancy can be seen in the expression, pose, and the general placement of where everything is. This is a concept that is profound from the many perspectives you can have about this piece. ( Featured by 3wyl )

I feel like Candy Cain would have also been a good title for this work.
