Weekly Photo Challenge: Eerie (1)

For this week’s Photo Challenge’s prompt I read:

a photo doesn’t have to be blatantly macabre to be eerie. But it can have a mysterious, otherworldly vibe — the viewer wonders what lurks in the shadows. Something eerie has a story to tell — one you aren’t quite sure you want to know.

So I’ll go through my archives and see what I can come up with!

Today for the first trial, I thought I’d show you two photographs that I’d taken for a former Weekly Photo Challenge…which were not acceptable for several reasons, first and formost because they came out a little…well, weird. 

This is my reading lamp, taken in the evening, when the light just wasn’t right:

Hard to say which is eerier…the original without any retouching or the lamp in it’s final state.

Here’s another shot of the same lamp…this time using sepia for the final state:

Hope you enjoyed the show!  And I’ll be working harder to find something even eerier (which I haven’t shown you yet for another trial!)

In the meantime, have a look at these great photographers.  They’ve really come up with some interesting photos!
