Weekly Photo Challenge: Eerie

Not in black and white but I think they’re definitely eerie so I reckon they fit this weeks photo challenge

These were taken at a local cemetery a few years ago… apparently the webs were created by a little caterpillar called ermine yponomeuta moths, which are common in Britain. It was a pretty amazing sight!

    Hey TAC, I love these pics! I’m a big fan of graveyards – the peace, the nostalgia and the reminder that life is there to be lived… the caterpillars have done a great decoration job!

    Beautiful pictures! I agree: they don’t need to be in B&W to be eerie 🙂

    Wow, that’s crazy, and creepy (eerie too of course)! I’m not a see a bug and squeal sort of girl but the thought of the caterpillars slowly covering everything in their webs does seriously give me the willies!

      I know what you mean… most bugs don’t bother me too much but if that had been spiders webs you wouldn’t have found me anywhere near the place… photo opportunity or not!!! 😉

Quotes that speak to my soul…

"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving.
What you have caught on film is captured forever...
it remembers little things,
long after you have forgotten everything." - Aaron Siskind

"You become things, you become an atmosphere, and if you become it, which means you incorporate it within you, you can also give it back. You can put this feeling into a picture. A painter can do it. And a musician can do it and I think a photographer can do that too and that I would call the dreaming with open eyes." - Ernst Haas

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by Dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."
- Steve Jobs

“To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.”
- Henri Cartier-Bresson

“For me, the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity.”
― Henri Cartier-Bresson

“Above all, life for a photographer cannot be a matter of indifference”
― Robert Frank
