Eerie. Â So as to inspire superstitious fear.
Â This week’s photo challenge from the Daily Post is all about eerie. Â These photos were taken back at a set of trails near where we used to have our house, a popular spot to walk our dog on the weekends. Â Even though you could usually guarantee you’d be the only person out walking about, these trails for the most part never usually felt eerie or frightening to me, even if I was by myself and it was getting close to dark. Â (And no, I was not confident because of having my dog by my side. Â As a greyhound, she would be the first to run away at any sign of danger, and at speeds much faster than me)
The only time these trails ever had a supernatural sense was in the late fall when all of the leaves had disappeared from the branches, but it was still too early for the snow to fall. Â This would give an unnatural and barren feel to the normally lush land. Â As if the there was no longer life left anywhere on earth, and you were the only human being remaining. Â That no matter how far you searched, you would be completely isolated and alone. Â And that thought, as I’d pass through this forsaken landscape, would scare the s#*t out of me.
