Daily Deviation

Given 2009-09-16
While so many horror photos depict a violent act in progress or the aftermath of an incident, Love Violently, Kill Tenderly by ~JulianGraves shows the split second before, the final chance to stop before crossing over to the point of no return. It hit me like a slap in the face. It actually makes me feel quite sick (in a good way!) and I can't stop looking at it. ( Suggested by dressONbackward- and Featured by TanyaSimoneSimpson )

I'm on the edge of my seat! I find it interesting how the man is clearly upset, but the woman is indifferent and has turned her back on him. She has no idea that he is holding a gun to her head. She probably never thought him capable of such violence, even if they were fighting. Anger sneaks up on us and we do things in the heat of the moment that we wish we could take back after they have happened. He hasn't pulled the trigger yet so there is still time to save her. Who knows what he will decide to do. Well done!

Breathtaking an beautiful. I can't tell you how many "favorites" I have on DeviantArt, but this truly is my #1. I constantly come back to this photograph to absorb the emotion and feeling.

Says a lot about relationships, I think we do love violently and in some instances kill tenderly...
A very powerful image :clap:

I closed my eyes in horror only to blink them open quickly to appreciate the beauty of this. I love the scene, the emotion, and words that are left unspoken in this photogenic description of… it is many things. Some un-named, but others are named. It reminds me much of my past relationship. Indeed we loved violently and killed each other tenderly. Love and hate mix and meddle with each other ‘til one is the other and the other is the one. Love and hate expressed in thoughts, words, and deeds. Never a regret though no matter what.

I just love how absolutely disturbing this is. It's great to see the moment right before the trigger is going to be pulled or not.

…Remind me to never sit with my back turned to some random male stranger…

I feel really bad for the girl…But at least she won't really know what hit her…

And if I may, what exactly is she doing?

the guy is at the line between pulling the trigger or not. well it was kind of an old photo i took. so it makes feel different things everytime i look...
right now the girl is so careless enjoying her cigarette and enjoying the moment how she managed to piss off the guy, but she was so unaware of she crossed the line.
