Weekly Photo Challenge: Eerie

Stump
Tree stumps that extend for miles left from the eruption of Mount St Helens.

The weekly photo challenge is a step outside of my usual style.  Living by myself, I tend to avoid anything that is “eerie.”  In my photos, you will see places I’ve visited that have left me feeling uncomfortable.  The images themselves may not look scary, but the events that took place in them were, or there is an unknown element.  Mouse over the photos to learn more about each location.

What is your perspective?

  3. Amazing photos once again. Where is the cemetery?

  4. I also live by myself and I felt the same discomfort looking at them. Really well done for the challenge! 😀

    Eerie and haunting. I remember being at the Deportation Museum in Paris, and seeing all those tiny lights representing each deportee.Very moving. Took a picture of that corridor but it did not turn out as well as yours. I also dearly love the first picture with the tree trumps. Congratulations on your success in photography.

    Imagine the Anne Franks relative and the horrible scenes during war..

    Good ideas. These are events that must be remembered, even though they are unpleasant to think of. I think the Deportation Memorial is a misleading title. Deportation is sad, and yet most Americans don’t realize that the people were deported to concentration camps, and most died there.

    I used to live in Weimar, within 5 miles of the Buchenwald concentration camp. It always held a morbid fascination, and a vivid reminder of what some humans are able to do to others.
