Comment on photo: I love how the lighting and the impact of the title contribute to the emotion behind the photo.

Comment on category: Horror isn't just about visually scaring. :) "Black Swan" was primarily psychological horror which acted out on fears in a different way. I think Apathy is a concept that is terrifying.
Though that's just my take on it since the discussion is occurring on this deviation anyways. The category doesn't matter much to me :)

You should report it for miscategorization so I can see how long it takes dA to respond.

I think that it would fit into the conceptual photography category. I sense a message behind your photograph although I can't bring myself to explain it...

well , to me this shot is beautiful and not macabre. I actually find a lot of warm color in your whites.

I think the response is "if people don't care too bad for them". You should care because you want a world of some particular form. I guess you look for a community of like souls and try to make it in one place first. I have been blessed to live in a reality I enjoy so the apathy of others isn't an issue.

Or alternately , withdraw into yourself and make lots and lots of great photos :>)

so I went out to the popular gallery to see how you did and on the 8 hour you were way out in front. I don't think I was the only person who didn't get the joke behind this being in 'Horror and Macabre'.

This was I think all the time. If they don't care about the shit I do, or the shit that I go through, then why do I?

Nice picture, btw.

Horror & Macabre - Looks pretty scary to me!

You know, you really should try to actually produce an image for this category and also legit images for DA's other categories. I think you will have fun pushing the limits of your skill and creativity.

Of course (said sarcastically) :lol:

I agree. But at this point, most people just don't care. And frankly, I'm getting tired of caring too ^^; If Plato has taught us anything, it's that trying to inform the apathetic is a futile mission. No wonder it's legal for congressmen to do insider trading and okay for billionaires to pay only 10% in taxes. They're not just exploiting the loopholes of the system; they're exploiting the apathy of the general public.
