This week Teri challenged us with:
This week’s theme is all about “something scary” since Halloween is right around the corner. Aside from the requisite ghouls, ghosts, witches and other scary things we associate with the season, I admit that there are scarier things!
I am in awe of people who traipse around looking for, entering, and taking photographs of ‘abandoned’ buildings. I find their photos intriguing, and a little sinister. I visit many ancient sites, old stones, castles, national trust houses, but abandoned buildings just give me the heebie-jeebies! However during last years visit to Dumfries and Galloway, we did visit one such dark and brooding place, and I have to say I was on edge all the time, I felt I was not particularly wanted, resented as part of the problem that would let such a magnificent place fall into such disrepair. The ghosts of the place seemed to weigh heavy on me as I took my photos, and at the end I would have to say I was happy to leave! Though also happy to have visited.
