Three lovely bits-o-creepiness, photographed on a sunny May afternoon.

It was a busy day: Spent the morning searching the online want ads. Spent the afternoon taking pictures. Spent the evening being a good helpmate. Spent the depths of the night previewing photo manipulation websites. (Yeah, the birds are singing as I type up this post.)

I know some of you are photographers. Maybe you too were heart-broken when Google+ gobbled up Picnik, only to spit out a less friendly, less fun, set of free photo editing tools. If so, check out Pixlr. I happily played with both the photo editor and the cool, “retro vintage effects” section. (The interface on that is fascinating.) For the following photographs, I just used the editor to add a credit line, but it looks like there are lots of other useful things there too.

I’ve visited this little cemetery before. From the highway, it appears to be a relatively modern graveyard, but if you wend along a gravel road through the woods ¬†for a little ways, you come to an older, more Irish-Catholic section.

This one is for Kat.
Dr. Kline’s Sanitarium now has apartments for rent.

“Castle Island” in the Rum River.

I’ll be doing full posts about these locations later this month, and there will be more photographs. For now, I just had to share my favorites.
