After Dark

Eric is the editor of the monthly newspaper here and asked if I would help with a photo for one of his stories. Game for anything, I said sure.

The theme was Salem Noir and Eric appeared out of the shadows decked out in a trench coat and fedora.

Pausing for a moment, he lit up...

and continued to wait patiently.

It was at this point that Karen pointed out that an "Officer of the Law" was approaching.

Why would anyone question some guy lurking in the shadows and two crazy women, one holding a flash and the other standing behind a tripod barking orders? He was quite nice, apparently the woman in the apartment above us was upset about the flash. He smiled and just asked us to wrap up soon and was on his way.

So Eric continued to lurk in the shadows.

And then as if stepping back in time, he tipped his hat and the flung the jacket over his shoulders to step back into his role as the daily reporter.

Love ya Eric, thanks for the adventure.

This was great. Thanks for reminding me to look. Eric has a new career in film noir.
