Beautiful ...
I stared wide-eyed unintentionally.
It is diversity of a splendid photograph.
Other adjective qualifiers do not occur to me.
You seem to have got support of a Venus.
I send a sincere blessing.

Postscript
I climbed the Mt.Tengudake
(1,982m) yesterday.
I uploaded the photograph in the following blog.

Because I did not know halloween well, I may have lacked the meaning of sentence.

Pseudothemis...Thank you for your comments. Photo 1(top to bottom)and Photo 3...are a single photograph each that I just tinted in color. Photos 2 and 4... I combined two photos each. The last photo was a combination of three photographs. The observance of Halloween gave me a chance to get silly and play with my picassa program!

Thanks Joey...Happy Halloween to you! I have a photograph that was taken a while back that truly looks spooky, not a created photo, if I find it in the next couple of days...I'll add it to this post!

Good morning.
It became my daily work to visit your blog which consisted of a wonderful sentence and a photograph such as the gem.
Thank you for wonderful space.

Hello Pseudothemis...I enjoy your visits and your blogs as well. Your mountain climb photos are spectacular! Very soon, I will be spending much less time on this computer. I need to get back to my painting. Once I start a canvas, I will go for hours, every free moment is spent on my painting. I guess you could say I become obsessed!

Good evening.
You added a splendid image tonight.
I looked for a while admiringly.

Patsi said...

Haunting !!
Looks like you had fun with filters on your camera.
You changed your blog layout.
No more garden links?

spookydragonfly said...

Thank you Pseudothemis....and Patsi for the comments!

Patsi...I haven't changed the layout... yes, I'm still part of Blotanical, but like many others I don't have anything to brag about at this time of year in the gardens!


As far as the top photo goes...I added that after the initial post. That photo is an original, only contrast added. We had a family get together in July of 2005. No one remembers taking this photo...my daughter said she thought that my granddaughter had a fringe skirt...but when I looked through all of the other photos..the couple of girls there didn't have one on. They were playing with the hand held sparklers, though! Not sure if it is our porch planks showing through or the beadboard of the porch ceiling. What's really creepy is the "face" in the upper right?! I'll tell you...I got goosebumps when I saw this photo! I'm sure it's just a photo shot gone wrong...but it does look spooky!

I got goosebumps looking at the top photo! The image is indeed 'haunting'.

Hi Joey!...Thanks for stopping back...you are so kind. The original photo had a white film or "haze", if you will, across it. When I added contrast, it took care of the white. Now, I'm not a photographer by any means, I really don't know what happened with this photo, it was taken with my Kodak Easy Share camera. I just got chills and goosebumps when I viewed it...and I thought Halloween would be the perfect time to share it. Three years later, I still look at this and wonder.

Stunning colours, and that right, spooky feel. Well done!

Pseudothemis zonata said...

Good morning.
I read your sentence written down.
I watch your photograph again now.
You have natural ability.
I am convinced.
You are splendid.

Hello Camillia!...Thanks for the comment and visit...I had fun, what can I say!(with exception to the top photo, that's original).

spookydragonfly said...

Camillia...Just made a visit to your blog...You are more than an amatuer photographer! Beautiful photography...and, I want your study!!

spookydragonfly said...

Pseudothemis...Thank you...After three days of cold and snow flurries, yesterday my Darner and Meadowhawks came zooming all around me! I was quite happy to see them still around!
