These are so eerie. Puppies in glass boxes! And that last picture of the "headless" child might be haunting me for a while. Intriguing, though.

These photos remind me of the Scary Stories to tell in the dark illustrations...that still creep me out to this day.

that is creepy stuff.
Disturbing-
But on another note I like your new header- much less disturbing than your last!

Love Roger. He's always been very creepy... the feeling behind his photos always remind me of a Halocaust/depression era type thing. Very creepy and somewhat crazy. But that's why I like it. It's not like everything else, kudos on the pick!

Much Love,
Trissta

Girl! You are off the chain! So weird yet very artistic. I wonder what those children look like as adults.

Alina said...

Unlike the usual boring photography everyone shoots! I love the WTF pics.

Caroline said...
