The Familiar

1 Familiar_032 merged 2

By day, she is the lady of the manor – calm, serene, dignified. But by night, she consorts with the ravens, wandering the edges of the lake, the mist her companion during her nocturnal stroll. She pauses to rest, the darkness crowding around her as her lips curl up into a tiny smile.

This is her time, when she is who she is; not who she is perceived to be.

I’m not what you call the biggest fan of Halloween. Honestly, I can take it or leave it and I hadn’t planned on doing a photo for the holiday at all. This is probably the closest I will get. It was inspired by the “Familiar” pose prop from oOo Studio available at this month’s round of Pose Me Amazing. With the poses and ravens included, all that was required was a spooky location.

And a story. Tell me yours…

Edit: I almost forgot to give a big thank you to my sis, Rwah, for helping me with this photo. I will soak up every word you say (even if I’m hopeless at implementing them!) ❤

      Yes! I’m with caoimhelionheart! The dress is SO inviting… but the crows are SO foreboding! It’s a very pushme-pullyou kind of image you’ve created!

      Oh, crows are cool! But these are ravens – their higher class cousins 😉
