Signs of Struggle

Thought I'd try for a bloody hand type shot as I hadn't taken anyhthing else and couldn't think of anything else to do... Trouble is, looks just like a tomato sauce hand shot :-(...

Shot and edited on my iphone...

Why oh why did I drive to work today!!!

This morning, 16 miles took 1 hour 40 minutes thanks to an accident on the A13. This evening, 2 hours 10 minutes thanks to some flippin lorry driver crashing into the Blackwall Tunnel.. East London was utter chaos.!

Once home, I headed to the gym and on leaving at 9pm, I pass under the M25 near Dartford and noticed it was still gridlocked...
Yeah, bloody, but nice colors, and interesting textures. I like this.

i have 2 older brothers that loved to torchure me by telling me late night ghost stories....the bloody hand that would break into homes and hid under little girls beds and come out and grab her while she was sleeping. i am surprised that i am normal....have not thought about the bloody hand in years....if i have a nightmare tonight i am flying to london in the AM to get some revenge... ha ha

hehe nice one I did a piece many many moons ago of a similar idea involving a sink and a kitchen knife. I found that a mixture of chocolate syrup and cochineal food colouring looks pretty near the mark (especially if you put a small lumps of black pudding into the mix :D)

@robinwarner haha... hope the bloody hand doesn't keep you up :-)
@asrai yeah, remember some of the shots you did... seems your a bit more experienced in the fake blood stakes than me.. haha

Couldn't think of anything else?! I think the traffic brought you to this mind set. Did you clean it up or just leave it on the wall?
