Lens-artists Photo Challenge #71: Creepy

This week, Ann Christine has asked us to show some images that say Creepy.

To me, different things can say Creepy

Let’s start with this image of some mannequins in a dress shop in Seville, Spain. So far so ordinary, but the rather pallid grey faces and inscrutable expressions have me a tad spooked (and how about the floaty person behind?):

Next, we have a clown – spooks out some people

…and how about the circling birds and sightless windows?

  1. Yep…a creepy collection Sue 🙂

  2. I’m with you Sue. The manikins ARE creepy looking. And I’ll never argue about a clown’s creepiness😱

  3. The last one is fab, definitely horror film material.

  4. Am now well creeped, thank you, Sue 🙂

  5. *Shudder* Nice creepiness!

  6. I’m not scared of (or creeped out by) the birds or the clown, but those weird mannequins are strange indeed. They certainly wouldn’t tempt me to buy any clothes. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

    Well I shouldn’t want to be at the last location in the dark Sue so I’m with you and creepy it is 🙂

  8. And…creepy they are! I have never seen such strange faces on mannequins – unsettling indeed. And the last shot has a place in any horror movie or book…Well done!

  9. But that clown has nice eyes! He couldn’t creep you out 🙂 🙂

  10. Very creepy images, Sue. My worst is the clown face. Maybe I suffer from coulrophobia as even if the clown is smiling, I can’t help but see an evil leer. 😳

  11. Amy

    Creepy, especially the last image. Great photos!

  12. I have always found mannequins creepy. Yours are especially menacing looking.

  13. A clown with a bloody knife is never a good thing. The mannequins are definitely weird and your use of B&W in the last shot makes is very moody and worthy of a setting for a Hitchcock movie. I’ve been thinking about this as I’ve seen various entries. A millipede is creepy to me, but I’d never have a photo of one because a) they’re too fast and B) I’m too busy trying to smash them. 🙂


  14. Words rule this time, especially the ones attached to the first photo. Whenever you do words I want more.

  15. The house with the circling birds is the spookiest of all!

  16. Great choices…I have a thing about clowns; I’m one of those “some people.”

  17. I’d have to be paid a lot of money to be seen in one of those spooky dresses. I love the black and white shot Sue.
