Fact or Fiction Friday

If you don't like scary posts, than avoid looking to the immediate left.

Unless you hate Truth, Beauty and Goodness, you know that yesterday was Vincent Van Gogh's B-Day. I planned on celebrating it by painting a self-portrait of myself. Unfortunately, my paints dried up. So I had to settle for taking a self-portrait of myself in the mirror.

This morning as I was developing the photo, I noticed a shadowy figure in the image. I thought it might disappear once the film was fully developed, but if you look very closely, you might see the ominous figure(Not the one holding the camera. That's me.) If you have trouble with your eyes, you may want to click on the image and look towards the left.

What could it be?

I am too shaken to say anything more.

It looks like a ghostly apparition of a covered parakeet cage. Too scary! Maybe your home is built over a budgie burial ground.

I was going to throw a big party for van Gogh's b-day however I decided to channel my finances into a proper celebration of Bunsen Burner Day instead.

Happy Bunsen Burner Day!

I think its just the cease and desist letter from McSweeney's.

anne: bunsen burner day is today V's b-day, yesterday. Can't you have too celebrations in one week?

Just the same happy b.b. day.

It must be a hater of "Truth, Beauty and Goodness".

Justin (that's your name, right?)

I can't see anything. Maybe you can deal with your fear of things in photographs (is there a name for this kind of fear?) by using white out on the negative. Or you could just take a hair dryer to the negative and heat up the celluloid until it wilts and that'll get rid of whatever was there (or you think is there). Heck, use a Bunson Burner!

I'll tell you what I am seeing right now. A squirrel is on a tree in front of my deck and he is hitting the tree with his tail. It makes a dull woody sound. Now that is not in my imagination. It's real data.

Have a nice day.

I think its someone wearing a bedsheet.

Though I was expecting it to suddenly overlay with some ugly face, or clip from a horror movie or something ... Felt a little let down when it didn't do anything.

Yeah, what Hoffster said...

What?

Boob said...

If it's the sheets thrown over something, I see it, if it's actually a shadowy figure that isn't made up of sheets, I didn't see it.

"The Concept of Irony was a good choice.
