What a great marriage between the image and its title!

I’ve seen another version of this shot and I liked it then and I like this one even more. A good photograph stays with you.
What comes to my mind immediately is the feel of a Melville movie or a French gangster movies – The "Sicilian Clan" is one of them with its music by Ennio Morricone. As we watch from the balcony edge the suspects going to their fateful destination I hear the repetitive theme song spasmodically following every step, every thought, every breath and a great fog covers our eyes …or the François de Roubaix theme song of Melville’s "Le Samourai" with its profound feeling of solitude….

The fact that this photograph worked on my mind so quickly making all these connections is the greatest accolade that I can give you.

A dark hybrid HCB styled piece. Architecturally, a demon faced structure in attendance by unholy human like creatures. This is the face that begets the belly of the beast. It conjures evil, foreboding and ominous tidings. It could be dismissed as a common H.R. Giger inspired piece, but there is movement through its use of line and symmetry. In its dark ritualism there lies the entry to the unknown.

Beautiful underlying symmetry with the architecture, but the lighting, and the people add a dynamic dimension that takes this from "meh" to "wow".

Pardon the pun but this works on so many levels. Very interesting, and pleasing to my eye.

Round and round we go... while I wouldn't necessarily put this on my wall, I would like to see it printed out really large. Love the movement.

great framing, bottom and sides, of unsuspecting suspects.

Always the same gang every damn time, beautifuly balanced and processed image, I would have cropped a bit off the bottom but I'm glad you didn't.
