Actually shot with film, scanned, and retouched.

(12/20) I thought would add a tip since the "mood" of this photo is what really makes it. This was actually taken outdoors with Tungsten balanced film. When used in "daylight" will give a blue cast. These days the effect can be produced much easier with digital cameras. Just adjust your white balance for interior light while you are taking photos outside and you will produce the same blue type effect. I think many users just leave the white balance on auto when you can alter your visual interpretations by simply mixing it up a bit. Try it sometime!
