Night Vision

Radioactive
When I was 6 or 7, one of my older brothers started telling me a ghost story, the only detail of which I remember is that there was a mysterious green light in the corner of a room. He never finished telling the story, and for years after I would wonder how it ended. Eventually I realized that he had been making it up as he went along, and stopped when he ran out of ideas. The unfinished story, of course, was much spookier than a whole story would have been (which is probably why I remember it); the idea of the story was spookier than the story itself.

Shadow Shot Sunday is fun for the whole family! Check out the other folks here.

I often wondered what's behind the shadows. Thanks for sharing this great photograph and your story.

Our memories can haunt us nicely. As the end of the story was not finished, your imagination made the glow seem spookier and spookier the more you thought about it. Nice green glow and post!

Hey Harriet said...

Oooh I love that shade of crazy green! Your photo would be a perfect addition to the pages of a book of scary ghost stories! Or better still, the book cover shot!
