Grosteque and grainy, this hauntingly beautiful black and white photo by aka_papu is enough to send shivers down our spine!
Surreal photographs usually fall within color photography territory, so it always catches our eye whenever someone would attempt to do this in black and white. One such case right here at the community is this photograph, titled “Tree Hug” by *aka_papu*. Shot with his Minolta Dynax 800si loaded with Foma Fomapan, aka_papu’s photograph is equal parts unnerving and fascinating.
Congratulations to aka_papu for winning Photo of the Day!
