This week’s photo challenge is timely: Eerie.
After posting the first version of the turtle, Pete suggested posting a B&W version. Not sure which is more creepy, but for the 2nd version, I refrained from applying filters, or playing around with it too much… What do you think?
This morning on a paddle board ride I came upon a HUGE dead turtle. Backtrack… this morning for my ride I took out a brand new toy to play with: a GoPro camera. Yay me! On my ride, which was with friends, we spotted something floating. As always “Let’s go see what it is!” was on each of our tongues. I wasn’t the first to come upon it, but I was the first to hear “It’s a huge ass turtle!”
“Is it dead or alive?” I was dumb enough to ask. If it were alive, it would not hang out long enough for us to paddle up to it. Huge ass it was indeed. And very dead. Its eyes were red and bulging. As I approached it I thought to myself “Oh how creepy and eerie.” That’s when a light came on in my head for this week’s prompt. I played with filters, and did what I could to turn the creep on this already eerie dead turtle. Little did he know he would be celebrating el dia del muertos in style…
Talking about the day of the dead. That’s eerie too!
Can eerie and cute go hand in hand?
