Halloween some days gone… I thought you might still have some interesting thoughts and images left for us and this challenge – things Creepy!
If you look up ”Creepy” in a dictionary, it says ” causing an unpleasant feeling of fear or unease”.
Here are some of my creepy nightmares… and in the header my worst scenario. Just how many spiders were at work weaving all those nets? And that – in my own garden…
When a sudden look down a side street – reveals an abandoned house – or, maybe not…?
When it is raining men…
…or they suddenly dissolve in a haze – right in front of me.
Or – I have to pass through dark tunnels …and I notice someone lurking inside.
I also avoid walking in the forest late nights…no option…when there are tree trolls towering 2×5 meters high and wide.
Seeing a giant Gunnera waking up…gives at least me the creeps…
And, Totti…? Is that you?
According to a recent study, the creepiest job was working as a Clown, and among the creepiest items mentioned, were dolls. Personally I clearly can relate to ”unpredictability” as an important component of creepiness. If you are interested in reading more of this study, On the nature of creepiness, here’s a link.
We just have to remember that being ”creeped out” is deep down a good thing for our ability to survive! So – now we are looking forward to seeing Your Creepy answers!
Thank you for the many inspirational and varied entries for Patti’s Monochrome challenge! Some of you were not much used to monochrome before, but found your own ways to answer to the challenge – clever and innovative!
