One need not be a chamber to be haunted;
One need not be a house;
The brain has corridors surpassing
Material place.
Emily Dickinson

’Tis the night – the night
Of the grave’s delight,
And the warlocks are at their play;
Ye think that without
The wild winds shout,
But no, it is they – it is they.

Photography is not about cameras, gadgets and gizmos. Photography is about photographers. A camera didn’t make a great picture any more than a typewriter wrote a great novel.

    is this photo shop work?
    I am so curious about how you achieved this ….amazing to look at and wonder :O)

  • well, it is not ! just a simple photograph of a display found in my local zoo on which I have worked on contrast to eliminate numerous and various clutters that had nothing to do with halloween ! the only “thing” I added in my editing program is the red eye, the original one had disappeared in the process !
    thank you karensue !
    my best, francis.
