There are few things less helpful than starting a blog and immediately disappearing, but I managed to do it. Settling another activity and blog into my life has proven more of a challenge than I anticipated. I’ve been getting the hang of the new camera and learning how to wade through the deep layers of menus and options/settings. Along the way I  missed some Weekly Photo Challenges. And today I’m going to rectify that.

This week’s Photo Challenge is “Creepy.”

This week, share an image of something creepy. Unsettling. Eerie. Disgusting. Go goofy, as I have. Grab a shot of something you find disturbing, but few others do. Try a black-and-white shot of something you’d normally photograph, to give it a moody cast.

We can go back to inspiration next week — this week, give us some heebie-jeebies!

Striding to the head of the class, with absolutely no obstacles in its way, is a figure I discovered outside a restaurant in Ljubljana, Slovenia. It’s a bit of a local landmark and its purpose is to lure diners inside. Or not.

The tomb of a young martyr in a Norman cathedral, Albi, France, is highlighted by the setting sun. I thought it was beautiful, but a number of people thought it creepy and commented it looked as if she was going to arise from the dead.
