Days 1 & 2: Thirty Days of Noir
It’s November now, or as I like to call it…Noirvember.
If you’ve hung around this site for any length of time, you know I’m a big fan of film noir and noir-based fiction and photography. It’s my favorite genre for a few reasons: The mood it evokes, the classic nature of it, the murky who’s good, who’s not part of it all. Because hardly anything is black-and-white in this world, right? Things don’t break that neatly.
The idea behind Noirvember began about seven ago as the brainchild of with Marya Gates, aka Old Films Flicker, a film historian, now doing social media for Turner Classic Movies and a few other outlets, not to mention her own vehicles.
The #noirvember hashtag runs strong on Twitter, and on Instagram. And, since I have quite a bit of Jersey Noir in my portfolio, I thought I’d jump in and be part of the fun.
To that end, for the next thirty days (well, 29 now), I’ll be posting something noir-related every day. Mostly my images, but also books, stories and films related to the noir genre that I like as well.
So, grab your fedora, oil up your gat and spark up a Lucky. The air is getting chilly, and the fog is starting to roll in.
Stay with me now…and watch your back!
