Weekly Photo Challenge: Creepy in so many ways

Empty alleyways always give me the creeps. Who could be lurking. What skullduggery could befall you.

This painting creeps me out more. A sad indictment of modern parenting. I hope not. I could not bare to hang this on my walls but the bag baby to me is even more creepy.

To even think of this as an art work makes me wonder at the creators mind. What level of creepiness lurks within. I feel the artist has walked down to many empty alleyways.

This is less creepy. The giant squid floating in its sea of formalin stares out from the glass case. As long as I don’t come across one in real life – that would be more than creepy –  it would be downright terrifying.

Finally a creepy platter of fruit. A head being served on a platter.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

    Creepy – I’ve just looked at Desley Jane’s creepy photo of a RNA clown game. Now I come here and see that you have even more creepy pictures to look at! I think I’ll have to creep away. 🙂

  6. Agree – very creepy photos. Sadly, the pic of the baby lying on the floor in the disheveled home is a reality for some children. As a child welfare case worker I have seen many creepy home environments – add in some cockroaches, urine soaked sheets, dog and cat feces and garbage strewn across the floor. Very creepy!

    • I know it is reality for some. Being a child welfare worker it must be so heartbreaking for you seeing these conditions and probably you have little ability to do much about it. It seems in Australia that child welfare workers are dammed if they do and dammed if they don’t. Why anyone would want it hanging on their wall I find very disturbing.

    You understand creepy! Yes, all creepy. Though it saddens me to see the photo of modern parenting.

    All levels of creepiness going on here, Irene. I think the top one takes the cake. But the others are right up there. Is that squid real? Or is that art work?

    You do a great job with these challenges Irene. These are all so creepy (and I remember the creepy baby bag, which is quite disturbing) but that painting of modern parenting makes me feel so terribly sad. I could not bear to have such a thing in my house either…
