  6. Dear Willow, Not my favourite time of year but you seem to be in your element. Have a spooky time!

  7. Suz, I'm sure the fatherly ghost noticed when his son showed up, but I didn't notice, since I was so enthralled with the son.

  12. Did you use Photoshop for this excellent, and spooky image? You know, it could easily be a movie poster.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Simply AWESOME! Love the only color in the photo is in your eyes. Have a wonderfully SPOOKY HALLOWEEN!

  18. Loving the seasonal theme of the last few posts, and ooo-er, today's photo is seriously spooky - those eyes!
    We do try here in England, but you Americans have Halloween down to a fine art, for sure. Wishing you a pleasantly ghoulish weekend!

  21. Willow,

    You've scared me.

  23. Those eyes, those eyes!
    Terrific photoshop effort!
    I agree it could be a movie
    three-sheet, or even a billboard;
    that would shake up the
    population there in Dublin, enit?
    You could start off small,
    shooting a series of WILLOW MANOR
    MYSTERIES and posting them on
    You Tube. Producers will see them,
    and the images you create for
    the posters, and go gagaga for
    the whole pitch, and before you
    can say Booo, Hollywood will come
    to Ohio, again.

  27. Well, Miss Smartypants. You can do incredible things with your computer/camera while I can't even figure mine out. Boo to you this Halloween.

    ReplyDelete
  28. love it.....

    (and isn't that your new hat???!)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Martin, no, it's not altered in any way. I couldn't believe the ghoulish apparitions that showed up in the background, let alone my werewolf eyes...

    ...nah, just kidding. I did have fun with the photoshopping.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Amanda, yep. It's my new hat. It's cold enough for woolly socks today, but not quite cold enough to wear the hat. Can't wait.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Glenn, a few years back, I actually had several 30 minute phone interviews with TV producers, who come to location and film segments of "ghost investigations". I think they decided against Willow Manor, because I refused to say we felt threatened by our ghostly inhabitants.

  32. What a great image with your wild-thing yellow eyes, and are those fangs . . .?

    ReplyDelete
  33. really neat photo melange. did you do this via photoshop or a similar program? Love the little photo of yr Dad in the pumpkin too. A treasure.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Your friends look like a ghoulish crew. -J

  35. Great image. Like the markings, however they were done.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Dear Willow: The effects are either really really very excellent good photographic technique or you have tasted something wicked-good from the Willow vats! Yes the eyes definitely have some eerie going on! Scary! Great pic!

  46. Quite the fascinating photo, Willow.

    Thoughts for Hallowe'en:

    From goblins, and ghoulies
    and long-leggedy beasties,
    and things that go bump in the night,
    Good Lord, deliver us.

  76. Happy Halloween, Willow!
    Have a merry little get-together with the ghosts and goblins around your house, but don't scare them too much, please. ;-)

    I had a gaggle of small witches and a ghost at my door moments ago. How lucky, I did not have to eat the chocolates myself! ;-)
