    Time me thinks for the 19th serious compacts salon challenge.

    Film noir is your theme. Can be black and white or colour.

    The salon starts at 00:01hrs Saturday 5 October for 2 weeks.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Rules are simple................


    1. Either take a picture that matches the nominated theme or select one from your portfolio. You must be the photographer that created the picture in order to enter it.

    2. There are several ways to add your photos to the current salon thread: 1. upload your entry to your SC user gallery (all entries must be present in an SC gallery), which you automatically get if you are registered on the SC forum, so if you aren`t registered you will need to if you would like to join the fun. (Don't know about the "gallery" yet? Then read this: SC Gallery FAQ please read it carefully if you are new to using the site's software.) 2. embed from Flickr or another similar web hosting photo site and 3. use the attachment method. All three are explained here:How to post images in forum threads

    3. Only one entry per salon, please. If you want to withdraw an entry and replace it with another, that is OK, but you must make it clear in the post containing your replacement picture that this is what you've done. You can add or change the title and add to the edit line to let everyone know.

    4. The decision of the curator at the end of the challenge is final - don't give him/her a hard time about it: this is just a friendly photo challenge, after all!

    5. The person who submitted the chosen picture will assume the responsibility of curator for the next Salon Challenge and as soon as possible post a message in a new thread in the SC Photo Challenges forum, with details of the new theme. Don't forget - that opening message must include a copy of these instructions, which also double as the rules.

    6. The curator can't enter his or her own salon.

    7. Please, don´t be shy...Participate and have fun!

    8. Each salon should be open for about two weeks.

    I don't have many shots that fit the theme, but I always enjoy seeing them. Here's one that I think works....

    My film-noir entry is a portrait of a seriously demented individual whom I encountered a few months ago at a local art gallery in the small Oregon town I live with. Though his overall demeanor was quite cool (almost icy), the tip of his cigar was hellishly hot, and try as I might, I couldn't quite look all the way into the dark, bottomless pits where I'm pretty certain his eyes were (or used to be). Needless to say, snapping this quick informal portrait of him was not an easy thing to do....but fortunately, at the moment I took it, his attention seemed to be directed elsewhere....

    Tho is definitely my favourite flower image ever. It just begs to be gazed at. It's like there is more to find within the picture.
    Definitely noir with a big helping of enigma.
