This week, Ann Christine suggests that we share some CREEPY photos that will show something “causing an unpleasant feeling of fear or unease”. Some of her examples include spiders. I personally find arachnids fascinating and not unpleasant. I frequently share a shower with some of them. And they make great photo subjects:
Do any of you remember that Jim Stafford song, “I Don’t Like Spiders and Snakes”? Well, having picked on spiders as creepy, here’s a shot of a snake:
How about UFOs? That idea is pretty creepy.
Here’s something that I personally find incredibly creepy, and it lives in my house. It’s a Jenny Haniver. Wikipedia will tell you:
A Jenny Haniver is the carcass of a ray or a skate that has been modified by hand then dried, resulting in a mummified specimen intended to resemble a fanciful fictional creature, such as a demon or dragon.
Important last paragraph. Well done.
That’s me – Jamie! 🙂
You know me…always have to find the meaning in the challenge. Thanks, Jamie!
That’s why we love you. 🙂
Tonight I won’t be able to sleep!!! I’ll have to remember that it’s just in my head…
Thanks, Ana. Mindfulness and context create the peace we need to sleep, right?
Creepy all of them – but I agree, humans are capable of creating more creepiness than anything in nature can. Because it is unnatural. That Jenny Haniver will be hard to get rid of before bedtime…
Wishing you peaceful, natural rest!
I wish you the same!
Fabulously creepy 🙂
These are cool shots. Appreciate your last paragraph, well said, Priscilla.
Thanks, Amy. I love your cave shots, too. It’s so hard with the lighting to get good shots in a cave! Carlsbad Caverns was marvelous but I got no good photos of it.
Great choices Priscilla, loved your spiders (which I find creepy indeed)
Thanks, Tina. The Marquis de Sade definitely wins the Creep Prize in my book! Great photo.
Thanks Priscilla. It looked so
Benign until you know the back story
I wonder how they named the Jenny Haniver??
One suggestion is that it’s a cockney version of the French phrase jeune d’Anvers (youth of Antwerp)…but why Belgian youths are demons to the French I cannot say.
