Theme Thursday Ghost

I am really late getting to this but, here I am. I knew when I read this week's TT theme, "Ghost", I would use my husband's photography. He has a section on his Flickr site called "...bump in the night".

Three of the four images are inspired by a great story or movie. The fourth image is...well, you'll have to decide what inspired that.

Marley's Ghost


Harry & Voldemort


Doc Brown's Assistant


Last Look


As you can see, my husband has a playful imagination. This is a self-portrait but the eyes are not his. To create a ghostly look, he used the eyes from one of my dolls. There he goes with the doll playing again. He gets more use from them than do I.

Wow! I had to take a 2nd look before I noticed the doll eyes! Very creative and very realistic as well!

Great shots. I envy his skill and they're damn spooky to boot! He's a pretty amazing photographer - yeh the doll things a bit of a worry!

It's Stalin!

These are fabulous photos. I love them all, especially the third--and the incredible Self-Portrait with Doll's Eyes!

Sandra Leigh said...

That's one neat husband you've got - talented, too.

lol...about the last look...psycho comes to mind...the movie not your husband...great self-portrait...the doll idea was brilliant.

I love Dickens, so I loved that first shot.

The "Back to the Future" pic was moodier and more atmospheric than that movie ever got... Bravo!

And the self-portrait reminds me of an old EC Comics horror story about "shoe-button eyes!"

Minka said...

Isn't it good that we, grownups, have toys, too - and we can pretend we're actually doing something? Nice pics!

Dot-Com said...

Cool! Can't really decide if the last one is a pic of him or the doll though *lol*

Susan said...

I was thinking "Psycho", too!

The mister is mighty talented and has a great sense of humor as well!

Your husband has indeed an interesting imagination! I like the type of photos you post, California Girl!

Kate Hanley said...

Great ghost photos. And, a great Alice photo as well. The kids and I are reading Alice in Wonderland right now. I haven't visited in a while because for some reason, I had trouble opening your blog (it kept saying there was an error). Hopefully, it's fixed.

Michelle said...

So funny that your husband uses your dolls in his photography but so creative too.

I like the 3rd photo the best...very cool.

Nancy said...

Very creepy those eyes!

Megan said...

Very cool. And ghostly!

Otin said...

The doll eyes definitely make the pic look creepy! Thanks for visiting! If you click on the thing by the game that says all games, there are some that suit us non coordinated video people, like asteroids and centipede!

All the pics are great. The first one just makes me think of a scream that never ends.

God bless.
