Good one, Robert!
👻🙀 Thanks Jane!
Cool sightings, Robert. “If you go down in the woods today, you’re sure of a big surprise”. Maybe a Halloween surprise.
Thank you, Steve. I was going to include a slime mold, too, the kind that looks like a dog was sick, but my photos were no good. And maybe that’s just too disgusting-looking to be fun.
You wouldn’t have put me off with a slime mold. Dog Vomit Slime it is. I see them on wood chips a lot. Some are very cool.
Nice one! And creeeeeepyyyy!
Thank you, Anne! I’ve always wanted to see the Guy Fawkes Day celebrations, hope you have a fun Halloween.
That first image struck me as looking particularly like a spook (in the conventional way we represent them). On the other hand, you seem to have had negative feelings about it, judging from your fourth picture.
Haha! Thank you, Steve, for your positive comment.
May positivity be our proclivity.
Good ones, Robert!!
Thanks GP! I like your crazy pumpkin person!
And a happy Halloween to you too!
Thank you, Michael, it’s a strange holiday but fun. 🙂
The third photo reminds me of the way we used to make ‘binoculars’ with our fingers, then scan the horizon to see what we could see. We never saw much, but I can imagine that creature scanning the woods and asking, “Whooooo goes there?”
Ha! I like that! We did that as kids, too.
Too fun. There is an oak on a trail I walk that is caught in a silent scream like these.
Thank you, Melissa. That last tree was on a walk near Kinderhook, NY. I’m going to post a photo of an old staircase in Martin Van Buren’s house, a couple of miles from that woods.
Unkempt shrubbery and uncultivated trees, growing wild outside the parks, are menacing.
Man I wish I’d thought of that! 🙂
Hi Robert, I ran across your blog while researching online for a project. In the late 1850s until after the Civil War my family lived in the Finger Lakes region so I am glad to see your lovely photographs of the area. I am asking permission to use several of the vintage Memorial Day postcards on your site. I am curating an exhibit about Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War for a history museum in the state of Oregon where I live. Your image scans are excellent and the variety in your postcard collection superbly outpaces mine. Please let me know if this is ok with you. Thanks.
Hi Laura — sure that’s fine. I went to a talk in my hometown, some years ago, by the then- head of the DUV
