this is as scary as gets around our house...

I'm not dressing up for halloween this year
~actually I can't remember the last time I did~
but
I decided to dress up this photo instead
~~
when my hubby first looked at it
he thought it was fake
and
with a sly smile on his face
and
an eyebrow raised into the shape of a question mark
said
"you totally added that bird in there"
~~
I rolled my eyes at him
gave him the cold shoulder
and
went back to my files
to find the original photo
just so I could whack him over the head with it
~~

the photo above is the original
and
the one below
well
that's a dancing bird photo
and
my hubby
he's fine
I didn't hit him that hard

  5. Adding the black and white does make the sky look a little more spooky. Watch out, Hitchcock!

  6. Came from Poppie's page. Loved your sense of humor. Lone, dark, innocent bird. That's how Hitchcock's movie sucks you in.

  14. As usual, great eye! Love both; the greyscale is eerie but so is the blue. You have a knack for finding that perfect shot. And be nice to hubby! (You two are too cute together)

  15. That is amazing and so perfect for HaLLOWEEN. (btw, I don't dress up either.)
    Have heart for your hubs... it is so hard to know these days what is real and what isn't... your photo of the wagon and pumpkins is amazing.
