This is the creepiest photo I have ever taken. I considered posting it during oddities week, but then decided it would be a great Halloween picture. Clowns are often silly and fun, but at the same time can be very creepy. I vividly remember a mean clown coming to one of my early birthday parties.
This clown was inside a game machine at Prater, an amusement park in Vienna, Austria. It was night and the lighting made the clown look spooky. I think the closeness and the angle add to this. In post processing I lightened the photo and added grain to give it a dreamy look. I think the effect came through. Enjoy Halloween and avoid the spooky clowns!
