It Opened its Mouth and Screamed

Newer Older

This house used to be surrounded by trees and weeds. The recently stripped all the land around it for some sort of construction. When I saw that it had been cleared I went to take pictures because I figued I'd finally bealbe to get a clear shot (I've been trying to photograph it for years to no avail). When I went around to the other side of the house I literally gasped when I saw the houses's skull staring at me.

    It's a House-O-Lantern.

    Don't crop it.

    I didn't mean to suggest cropping it and replacing it. I like the original. It just looks cool cropped as well.

    Here's a shot of the crop...I like the sky in the original, but the cropped version has its own charm as well

    I just had to pop back in to say: LOL @ "House-o-Lantern" ! :-D

    PS - I like the original. I think the building next to the screaming house adds some character to the shot as well.

    This would make a great Halloween card to send to friends and family, if you do that sort of thing :-)

    Thanks you!

    The first thing I thought when I saw the face was that the house was screaming in pain because they were ripping it up......

    I guess it had a good reason to scream. Poor house.
