It came from Putney by ash It came from Putney by ash
Just so you all know I wasn't talking bollocks the other day about Putney being the scariest suburb in London. Check out this old house. Like, just for starters, what the hell is that on the roof?

Renovating architects took control of the best haunted house in this city and turned it into a pastel abomination. Any remaining ghosts who could stand the colour scheme would surely have deserted when a music school moved in, bringing with them a horde of dissonant kiddies :( (Sad)

The thing on the roof is a black statuette of some creature, with a long body and tail and short legs, with its head raised as if crying out. Pretty darned weird. I'm making this up a bit from memory, will have another look next time I walk past.

Yeah the BMW is in the way, I tried to exclude it but that didn't work so in the end I tried to use it. But it really messes with the whole scary movie trip.

Great shot, with a great angle, I like the leaves peaking in at the side.

This reminds me of a house I saw on a trip over to South Australia a few months back... in this tiny bush town, with a population of, must have been 250 or so people, there was this old, two storey house in a back street (Well, as back as a town with one main street has, ie any other street but)... it looked just like a good old horror house... but not quite enough to take a photo of... it was pretty cool... but what made it so damn amazing, and had me just standing there for minutes on end aghast at how great it was, was the fact that there was old 1920-30s music playing from inside, and playing on what sounded to be an old gramaphone, as it scratched and warped and carried on...

So there was this old house, no others around it... just standing there with this music drifting out of it... pretty spooky... pretty darn cool... but then... then there started to be the sounds of kids laughing... as well... just quietly... just a bit... just enough for it to be DAMN spooky! But all you could see was overgrown garden, rundown exteria, and that was it... with a flash of movement from a window every now and again... damn it was amazing...

:o (Eek)

So... erm... yes... this photo reminds me of that house...

Great detail depth & contrast. Interesting choice in regards to your perspective here, I really like the intoxicating effect it possesses. & yeah...what IS that on the roof? A cat...crow...pigeon? OMG Anyhow, great shot here. The BMW is in the way! ;) (Wink)
