Go with the glow!



This picture of the Nosferatu frame on the wall was taken in complete darkness to emphasise the character’s glowing eyes.

“The sight of the Nosferatu’s eyes glowing in the dark was enough to make me want to flee for my life.” Unknown

As the frame appeared ominous and might cause someone to lose sleep, I asked the man why he kept it in his bedroom. He asserted that he has always liked horror movies because they maintain suspense and thrills while also demonstrating a person’s mental toughness in the face of adversity.

And I agree since things depend on the strength of one’s mind.

  • Exposure-15.0s at f/8.0
  • ISO-5000
  • Focal length-17 mm
  • Metering-pattern
  • Tripod-used

You can also read ‘Nosferatu’, written below the image if you strain your eyes a little bit.

The image glows in the darkness, once the room lights are switched off. I think the paint must be some kind of ‘glow-in-the-dark’ paint (luminous paint) and glows green to greenish blue colour.

I am referring to the 1922 German (silent) horror film “Nosferatu,” starring Max Schreck as Count Orlok. (produced exactly 100 years back)

One of the most memorable moments in the film is when Count Orlok first appears on screen, rising from his coffin with his gaunt figure and elongated fingers.

This scene sets the tone for the rest of the film and establishes Orlok as a terrifying and otherworldly creature. (Glowing moment for the film)

Do you enjoy watching horror movies?

Many said that they can’t sleep properly till the next day when they watch these movies.




The cruise ship stopped in the Mediterranean Sea for a few days and this photo was taken in Monaco.

Did you ever experience cruise travel?

It’s a unique way to see the world.

“We travel, initially, to lose ourselves, and we travel, next to find ourselves.”

Can you tell the difference between an ocean liner and a cruise liner?

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

  1. The Nosferatu image is truly frightening! Thanks for including a short clip from the 100+ year old film. Scary then and now. The cruise ship glows with a different, more peaceful, kind of light. Nice!
