As Scary as it Gets

IMG 2247

I am not really big into Halloween, so these photos are as scary as it gets from me. The photo above looked to me like the tree was kind of evil and it was hunkered down low to the ground to snatch someone up into its long bony fingers … uhm … (those would branches). It seems to scream I’ll get you my pretty! (insert evil laugh).

This window in the old abandoned house also looked rather scary to me. The torn plastic that once covered the window is ripped in the pattern of uneven teeth. The branches in front of it just added to the whole effect. I had the feeling it was beckoning me, no daring me, to come inside. 

Or maybe I just have an over-active imagination!

For the past two years we’ve been without power on Halloween. This year it’s kind of nice to have electricity for the spookiest of nights.


Photos taken at Long Pond Ironworks.


Oooooooooooooh! I can deal with the spooky shadows, but the broken teeth window treatment is so totally creepy!!! Nicely done.

Definitely a spooky tree shadow - as you said it looks like it’s leaning over ready to grab somebody.  The window?  To me it looks more sad than scary - abandoned and forgotten.  Happy Halloween!

Haha, you both had differing opinions on what was scary to you!
