Grim-Dark Glamcore

By AlexandraSD  
This is my genre i do believe Smile

Was going to shoot at an american diner on the A1, but i drove right past it and decided to visit that well known photographical beauty spot, GRIMSBY!

An unfortunate name for a town, specially one as grim as grimsby itself. I knew of this location by google maps, wanted to do a shoot at those docks for a couple of years now, and last night was the time to do it.

Unsurprisingly, this is also a red light area, i didnt know that before i arrived but it was clear that this area is for working girls but shockingly, most girls seemed underage, like 15 upwards, very young. Who knows what misfortune had them end up here...

I did get stopped by kerb crawlers, and even the police had a word with me. But i got some photos and that was all i was worried about.

The car headlights make it for me. And, once again, well done you for having the bottle!!!

Oooo that was weird this came up on my playlist as I was viewing your picture.

I like the orange and teal effect, it doesn't always work, but certainly does here, Lexi.

Grimsby made me smile as 'by' (pronounced bee) means town in Norwegian, so Grimtown...we have a town called Grimstad here and stad also means town or place...

Can't understand why you would be mistaken for a working girl, dressed like that.Wink

I can't either, as the other girls were all in tracksuits and training shoes, i looked very out of place but oddly very much at home too Wink
