Greetings from Amy and welcome to week 78 of Images and Words! I'm thrilled to be hosting on this Halloween weekend, and so my theme is "Happy Halloween/Scary Fun". I added "Scary Fun" to the theme because not everyone celebrates Halloween, so I think that anything that's both scary and fun would be appropriate. Here's my entry:
This is part of the "Haunted Woods" along the Boise River Greenbelt. Every October it gets dressed up as an outdoor haunted house--hence, "Haunted Woods". This is also where I got Dana and his son Ethan horribly lost while we were eaten alive by mosquitoes. I took this photo last year on an incredibly photographically prolific morning in which I was supposed to go balloon chasing but the upper level winds were too fast for flying, so I went down to the river instead. This is the same morning in which I took the photo of the steamy river with the two ducks, and also the weird bent twig structure (which I was trying to find for Dana and Ethan when we got lost). On this morning I had the whole woods to myself that morning, few people and no mosquitoes. I took this photo at a make believe graveyard that was staged where there had been a fire a few months earlier, and I think the black burnt wood looks gorgeous against the white skeleton hand and gauze.
I'd like to take a moment to say I'm sorry that I haven't been around much these past weeks--I've been swamped with a visit from my mom and sister, getting sick immediately following, and then increasing my responsibilities at the restaurant. And I'd also like to say thank you because among my increased responsibilities is social media marketing so I'm putting my Images and Words skills to work! Thank you, Joel, for starting this wonderful group! And thank you to all of you who participate! I'm almost finished catching up on my tasks, and then I should be back into the swing of things here at Multiply.
Each week we will post an original photo with words on it. The idea behind this group is to expand our minds through our photography.
Photos must be your own, but the words can be someone else's as long as credit is given after the words.
Your post can either be serious, or if you'd like comical, but never obscene .
Posts can either have one word on them,quotes, or full poems ... Your choice.
All posts are to be done on your own site in a blog form with a link back to it being left here.
New topics will be posted on Sundays.
Posts can be made through Saturday.
One post per person only please.
