Spooky

I had good intentions of shooting pictures at some of the older churches, houses and grave yards this week but just never found the time. I love old grave stones and have rubbings from some that date back to the early 1800's from family graves in Maine.

Anyway, Dorie, Althea and Becki and I were on the way home this past Monday when we had to make a diaper changing stop and I pulled onto the shoulder of the road next to this old building.

After altering it to make it black and white and blurring the edges I felt it looked a little spooky and a little sad.

I like this, glad you didn't post the freaky kind.

I bet it would look much scary in the middle of the night!

spooky and mysterious indeed! old abandoned buildings are very interesting. I wonder about their history and they are good photo subjects. I am always afraid to wander about and take shots though. afraid someone will say - what are you doing here?!!

I really like that photo. Sad and abandoned, who knows what spirits could lurk within!

Sad yes, but creepy too.

Great photo! Love the black and white conversion and the drops in the foreground.
