Underneath a mini-mall strip in Rockford lies a long tunnel stretch that must be about a quarter/half mile long which is covered by graffiti from end to end. Light from above trickles in every couple feet from the grates that show you the sky above. This amazing space has been used in many recent portraiture works by Brian Milo.

That's a really gloomy tunnel... It looks scary.

About the photo, perhaps you could have chosen a different place to shoot it, I would prefer not to see the out of focus and well lit ground in the foreground. Either way, this picture really caught my attention!
