Gleam of Fires by CameraDude Gleam of Fires by CameraDude
I tried to break the spell--the heavy, mute spell of the wilderness--that seemed to draw him to its pitiless breast by the awakening of forgotten and brutal instincts, by the memory of gratified and monstrous passions. This alone, I was convinced, had driven him out to the edge of the forest, to the bush, towards the gleam of fires, the throb of drums, the drone of weird incantations; this alone had beguiled his unlawful soul beyond the bounds of permitted aspirations.
-Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness

Yeah, an old shot. I really, really miss having photoshoots with my family.
This photo is now a book cover for David Grossman's El libro de la gramática interna
Woo Hooo

Beautiful and mesmerising.

I read Heart of Darkness for school and didn't enjoy it much :| but the text is definitely fitting here

I think it helps to read it (at least) twice. It's an extremely powerful and beautiful book.

I have to say, when I saw this I thought it could be a book cover and then I read your description. Haha :)
I love the movement in the lightbulbs and the boy's expression.
