Eerie Hallowe’en Like: Weekly Photo Challenges

I have posted this photo before, but it was the first idea that popped into my head when I saw the photo themes this week.

The Peace Tower at Night

The Peace Tower at Night

This photo was taken in Ottawa, Ontario of our nation’s Parliament Buildings. I find it eerie in sepia and due to the angle. Normally the building is shot with blue skies and as a wide shoot taking it all in.

Although come to think of it this sky looks a little eerie. Shortly after this was taken a heavy rain and thunderstorm passed through.

This is my response to 2 different photo challenges this week. WDBP wanted something Hallowe’en inspired; something that gave you the chills and looked a little spooky. Maybe this would remind you of Hallowe’en? The other is WordPress and the theme was eerie. Be sure to check them out to get all the detail and learn more about what they are looking for.

Stay Tuned…

  1. Is that someone jumping out of the Peace Tower? Wait….is that Mike Duffy, Pamela Wallin and Patrick Brazeau???? No. Just three gargoyles. Hard to tell them apart.

  3. Great how a different angle ‘makes’ the whole photo feel different.

    • Yes for sure… someone once told me always look for the photo that no one else has. Something unique can really make something more interesting.

  4. Cool…this is just perfect! Thanks for sharing.

    Perfect pics for the theme…love the sepia color.

  7. I love the first one!

    • Thanks, that is my favourite too and very different from the traditional pic that we usually see of the Parliament which was the one below with the ‘eerie’ sky.
      Thanks for the visit and taking the time to comment.

  12. Good choice CTB! Definitely looks eerie in the first shot!

  13. Nighttime with dimmed lights and grey skies are eerie and make us imagine wildly. Spectacular!

    • Thank you for your kind comment. It is spookier isn’t it? It makes me think of those old school scary black and white movies from long ago… cue the dramatic music… something is about to happen 😉

  16. Visiting here via Bastet’s Pixelventures. The first photo is such a brilliant shot – the angle, the sepia color, and the lighting all work together to create that eerie feeling. And, if I’m not mistaken, that is Gothic architecture – bonus for creating a creepy feeling.

    The second photo has its own merits. Again, I think that is Gothic architecture, and the tower on the right almost looks like it has a face looking out over the property. The sky and the natural lighting create a dark and gloomy feeling.

    Two great photos 🙂

    • Thanks very much for your kind comments. It is a photo of the same building in 2 different ways. It is the Canadian Parliament buildings in Ottawa, Ontario.

    • PS I think you are right is is gothic inspired and based on the architecture of our founding country -Britan. It copies the idea and style of the Parliament in London England on a smaller scale.
