bones, and more bones! Under the rocks- piles of bones... leg
bones... spinal bones... even a whole ribcage
half-buried in the ground...
I could clearly recognize animal bones in the mix (part of a deer
skull is visible in this
pic even), though I couldn't identify what most of them were, who
knows. The really eerie thing was that mixed in amongst the bones and
rocks were what looked like the personal effects of a person/persons
unknown... high-heeled shoes... a monogrammed purse (initials: PS)...
shreds of clothing.... stuff like that. It
was most likely animal bones under the pile, and maybe old
shoes/clothing/etc dragged out from inside of the house over the
years. That's what I told myself, anyway... but let me tell you, it
was a bit freaky, looking at that stuff, all alone in the middle of
the damned woods behind some super-creepy-looking old house.
And wondering how the huge rocks got piled up like that. Thinking of
the gingerbread trim decorating the house, all I could picture was an
evil old (Nazi cannibal??!) witch in the woods... luring people to her
place and eating them, then hiding their bones in the rock pile out
back. Yes, I have an overactive imagination. Heh.
had such a bad feeling while at that place... but before I
could even decide to leave, my camera decided it for me- it somehow
just froze up and would not work anymore soon after I
discovered the bone-pile. That was the final bit of creepiness... I
decided to go. And go I did, feeling like there were eyes on me the
whooooole walk back to the car (which was a distance away down the
isolated road); I have to admit I felt kind of relieved when I was
sitting safely in the driver's seat once again.
don't know what became of this place, these pics were shot before I
moved back to Texas. For all I know it may be standing there still, lost in
the woods, gingerbread trim, backyard bone-pile, and all... so if you
happen to wander past it's boarded-up doors, watch out for that
you have any background information or stories to
tell about this lost destination?
to purchase one of these, or any of my other photos...?
