Creepy Picture #1

Creepy Tree

I have gathered some creepy pictures, figuring Halloween would be the best time to post them.

You could write a horror story about this picture.

A Bit of B&W: Sv. Duh II

Sv. Duh

I have posted about this neat little island with a very small church on it before. This picture is so drastically different, I thought I would post it for this B&W series. Of course changes in lighting and time of day can really alter a picture. But this picture and the previous post linked above were taken minutes apart, yet they give completely different impressions. The black and white changes the mood, while the composure, with the path leading to the church at the center of the picture makes the island church the main character in this one. I like both, but there is a side of me that prefers the drama of this shot. Which one do you like better?

A Bit of B&W: Streets of Piran

Streets of Piran

Piran, Slovenia is a beautiful coastal town on a very thin peninsula of land jetting out into the sea. I went there by chance and was awed by the town’s coastal scenery and small alleys. This alley was cool and shady on a hot summer day. You can see how old the cities around the Mediterranean are. I hope you can imagine the feel of the warm sea air in the shade of this alley.

A Bit of B&W: Leif Shetlands Larsen

Leif Shetlands Larsen

In the center of Bergen, Norway, this statue stands imposingly on a harbor pier. It really stood out. People took to sitting around the statue and birds found the top of the statue to be a nice perch. I didn’t have time to read about who this statue is of, but thanks to the internet I figured out it is of Leif Larsen. He was a naval officer and the most highly decorated Norwegian in WWII. History has so many details, it is amazing how it seems you can never learn it all.
