Creepy Cemetery

Here is another cemetery shot I took last year. I was taken with the rusty iron fence around the plot. I’m sure in its day it was quite oppulent and tasteful. And as you can see the tall spire is very weathered and is showing it has been there for quite a few generations.

Old Cemetery

Here is a picture I took last year of a quiet little cemetery at a local church. The cemetery has been there for several generations with many of the headstones going back to the 1850’s. The stones are very weathered and with a lot of them rain and wind has smoothed away the name and date. As you can see many of the sites are starting to crumble and fall apart.

One thing that is always interesting with a cemetery of this size and age is coming across a family plot where the dates are within a few months of each other. I assume some “plague” or disease raveged the young town and they were helpless against it. It makes you wonder what things were like during that time.

Here is my little rendition of a scary little cemetery. I have several more I plan on posting.

My First Flaming Pumpkin

You never forget your first time…

Those little tea lights or small bulbs you’re supposed to put in pumpkins never really seem to show off their scary features. You get this little light that the wind is probably going to blow out after a couple of minutes or no one from the street can see the impressive carving you came up with.

I believe I have achieved the pinnacle in pumpkin illumination. Here we have Mr. Jack-O-Lantern with his scary face being sufficiently lit up with the help of a little accelerant. He certainly lights up the night sky now! The kids will be able to see him from all the way down the street. No more wondering which house is up to the challenge of having tricks or treats for the little kids. With this little display on the lawn or sidewalk you are saying to the neighborhood, “That’s right kids, there’s candy over here, by all means come and get some.”

Then again it’s just as likely to say, “Attention everyone! I’ve completely lost my mind and the chances of you being incinerated are pretty damn high!”

This was my beta test to see how my new Halloween plan was going to work. I have to say, it was pretty successful. Maybe for the next go-round I will roast a hot dog over his flaming skull.

Mr. Scary Pumpkin

This is from an experiment I did last year. We took a little pumpkin and carved him up all nice and pretty.

Then we let him sit.

And sit.

And sit.

No, that black stuff on the side isn’t from him being charred. It’s what we like to call… fungus!

He sat for a little over a week and this was the final picture I got before he disappeared.

What happened to him after that day we’ll never know….
