I couldn't seem to come up with anything to meet my own darned challenge,
so instead, I put together a picture of a rather old nightmare of mine. I'm not
so sure I should have done this.

(I do NOT know why the image is shown twice!)
(Fixed the little devil.)

Interesting concept... At first I was trying to decide if this is photoshopped or staged with someone. Although, the "ghost" looks like it may be a shot of you photoshopped. Good shadowing. And blackening of the eyes gives "The Thing" a sinister look.

One thing I do have to ask,,,in my nightmares the ghosts are usually huge, with knives and guns and clubs. Since this ghost only comes up to the handle,I gather you are afraid of a little person hiding in the closet??

Photo of the door taken today, photo of the "ghost" taken 56 years ago. Door layered on top of ghost, just hazily erased where the face was. Yes, Photoshop.

I'm not one for blatant terror. I've a penchant for the subtle sort, like a small whisper in the dark.

It's about time you posted something. As you said - YOU picked this subject! BUT you came through and gave us an interesting subject to ponder. I wonder why you had to go back to a 56 year old photo of your ghost. Hasit stopped haunting you now?


EDIT - P.S. Did you post the picture twice or does my computer now show two images instead of one. I've not completely figured out this new forum formatyet!

I think it's a good image and an interesting entry.

Puck, I just tried to edit out the duplicate, but I can't figure out why it's there to begin with. The first image comes from Photobucket, the second is showing itself as being hosted by Steve.

For both Ferny and Puck: I had to go back 56 years to find an image close to what I saw in my mind. And yes, Ferny, I'm showing my age once again. The "ghost" is the face of my big brother from a time when I was two years old.

We're all haunted by the past.
