Gothic Arches - Black and White with a Hint of Red


My wonderfully talented friend Chriss Rollins is the host of the Gothic Arch challenge this week and has chosen the theme "Black and White with a Hint of Red". This combination is always so striking and to me alludes to passion so I have created my arch with this in mind. I really like the effect of the Eiffel tower as though it is being viewed from the bottom looking straight up. I'm taking some creative liberties with the black and white including the sepia photo but....hope you forgive me Chriss!

Black and white is always so classy, so classic. But add that hint of red? And you've upped the "wow" factor into "va va va voom", like "get your sexy on" -- it just adds that dash of splash!!
