I'm a little late posting this as it's been very busy around here of late.
The contributors to the Divine Diptych Project also came to a consensus when selecting themes for this round, that a diptych a week was getting too much for most. In some instances they were juggling two diptychs a week, as some of the ladies are also involved in the Female Photographers of Etsy (fPOE) diptych project, Miss Match. Other ladies are relatively new mothers, or in the midst of pregnancies.
So this is mine and Elle's interpretation for Film Noir. Elle came up with some killer themes for this round, which given we have a similar cinematic interest, were actually on my mind when I chose themes, but I'd wanted a larger grouping to be involved, so decided against film genres after all.
Despite both of us being enthusiastic about the theme, both of us had real life getting in the way, and both had issues with various constraints - Elle's relating to locations and lighting, mine relating to equipment (I still haven't been able to afford to replace my camera and / or lens).
I ended up reluctantly digging through my archives, and found this outtake from Day 229 of my 365 Days project, which I felt fit the theme.
Despite everything, I think the pairing works really well and love Elle's image.
You can keep up with the project on the Divine Diptych Project blog. There are some excellent pairings for week 10 up now.
