Riding the roller coaster with a red-eyed demon

Submission for this week's Theme Thursday theme, scary.

If I were still living in Michigan, I know of at least a dozen freaky places I could go to. Old creaky houses and churches, dark wooded areas, etc. But being that I'm here in Vancouver, one of the most modern cities around, it's not always easy to find scary subjects (unless I decide to head to the East Side to photograph drug addicts and prostitutes).

Anyway, I snapped this photo quickly from the car recently. It's a facade that Playland, the local city amusement park, decided to put up on display for the Halloween holiday. The first image is a cropped up version of the second image, as you could tell. Oooo-eee-ooo!

...and my scariest thing in Michigan is the guy next door! I'm really glad you didn't try to get photos of the druggies and prossies! ;-) Really nice photos!

I like the tightly cropped image the best. Really gets you in there with the spooks.

Hey, I was wondering if you would E-Mail me back. I love your pictures. I was wondering if I could use them for a CD I am making?
