Artist's Description

SEVERAL YEARS AGO I HAD FOUND AN OLD HOLLOW SYCAMORE TREE IN THE CUYAHOGA VALLEY NATIONAL PARK ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF CLEVELAND, OHIO THAT WAS ABOUT EIGHT FEET IN DIAMETER. A FRIEND OF MINE, ALSO A PHOTOGRAPHER, AND HIS WIFE HAD LONG, COWLED, DRUIDIC LOOKING ROBES THAT THEY USED FOR WITCH’S COSTUMES ON HALLOWE’EN, AND I THOUGHT IT WOULD MAKE A FUN IMAGE TO HAVE THEM IN THOSE COSTUMES INSIDE THAT TREE, SO ON A SUNDAY MORNING WE ALL MET THERE.
IT WAS TOO MUDDY TO GET BACK TO THE TREE SO WE DECIDED TO GO UP TO THE OLD CEMETARY AROUND THE CORNER AND SEE WHAT KIND OF IMAGES WE COULD GET.
JOSEPHINE STARTED POSING AND RON AND I STARTED SHOOTING. THIS IMAGE IS MY FAVORITE. BUT THE STORY DOESN’T END THERE.
TWO WEEKS LATER ON THE SIX O’CLOCK NEWS THERE WAS A STORY STATING THAT THERE WAS A SATANIC CULT ACTIVE IN THE AREA AND THE MINISTER IN THE CHURCH DOWN THE HILL FROM THAT CEMETARY KNEW THAT IT WAS TRUE BECAUSE HE HAD SEEN FIGURES IN BLACK HOODS KNEELING AND PRAYING AT THE GRAVESTONES.
WELL…YEAH…HE SURE DID SEE THAT ! AND I HAVE THE PICTURES TO PROVE IT.
ISN’T IT GREAT THE WAY RUMORS GET STARTED ?
AS AN EXPERIMENT, I’D LIKE TO DROP AN ACORN ON HIS HEAD JUST TO SEE HOW FAST HE RUNS TO TELL THE KING THAT THE SKY IS FALLING !!
