Weekly Photography Challenge: Eerie 3

Today, some eerie pictures taken in Perth. Near the house is a street light that casts its baleful yellow glare in the windows all night long. At dusk by the sea, the Norfolk pines cast eerie silhouettes and shadows towards the tall buildings. In the kitchen, the black cat casts her baleful yellow gaze at the crazy woman who is kneeling on the floor before her, camera in hand. Yes, sunny Perth has an eerie side…

I don’t have a photo for this,  but I have to share the sad story of a Halloween pumpkin, and it’s grisly fate in sunny Perth. The local supermarket sold out of special Halloween pumpkins, and last Wednesday, I spotted one of them on top of the high brick pillar of a house I walk past on my way to the shops. Last Wednesday was Perth’s equal-second hottest October day on record at 37.2C (98.96F), and that poor Jack sat in the sun all day . On Thursday (Halloween), it had caved in a little on one side. By the weekend, it had collapsed in a sorry heap, presumably squishy and fermented. Today, a week after I had smiled to see it, any orange eeriness has completely disappeared, and it is just a strange flattened disc on top of a high brick post – his glory, like that of Shelley’s Ozymandias, utterly faded away and forgotten…Nothing beside remains: round the decay of that foetid wreck, the lone and level streets stretch far way…I told you it was a sad story…

  2. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your website?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two
    images. Maybe you could space it out better?
