The Gallery 32 – Life through red tinted lenses…

The prompt for week 32 of The Gallery over at Sticky Fingers in The Colour Red in homage to Halloween and all things gory and gruesome. I love ghosts and the gothic at any time of year but it is a long time since I went to a Halloween party, and when I did I just looked like Robert Smith of The Cure. My kids are also past the age of Trick or Treating thank goodness – the sooner that evening of permission to beg for revolting sweets at the doors of strangers goes out of fashion the better in my view (what is the equivalent of Bah! Humbug! for Halloween?). So as I know Tara is always happy to look at the prompt from every camera angle I thought I would post one of a series of pictures – basically tinkering with a tree.

Actually, looking at it again, out of context (there were other colours in the series) it does look somewhat gory, like the blood vessels in a lung. Uugh….

    I too love Halloween. Like the tree. Halloween is always a little disappointing afterwards though when nothing scary or gruesome happens!!

  2. Oh I love that! You’re right, it does look a little vascular! Brill!

    I’d be a bit concerned if my lungs looked like that on the inside….

    Still a great little pic though!

  4. Oh I love it, precisely because it looks a bit like blood vessels! Or a placenta? Very cool picture :-)

  5. Marylin says:

    Oh it totally makes me think of blood capillaries, like you said! Awesome photo… :)

  6. Tilly says:

    Ooh, bloodvessels!

    Spooky tree you have there! I hate to echo everyone else’s sentiments but I agree it does look a little vascular! ;-) Great shot!

  9. Nova says:

    Stunning! Yes it could be a series of vessels! :)

  10. Haha, you have the same views on trick or treating as my mother – she was loathe to let us go out ‘begging’.

    Really like the picture, this is one of the properly spooky ones!

      Oh dear – makes me feel old! I do always have chocolate to hand if kids knock and they have made a real effort to dress up. I am not a complete party pooper!

    Love this. It reminds me of The Joshua Tree album cover (U2). It looks like a couple of vultures are circling around nearby… Did you put a photoshop filter on it? Really strong image, like it a lot :-)
