Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost in the Details

This week’s photo challenge asks its participants to dig in to the details of something you’ve photographed.  OK.  Well.

When I was in Baltimore this past December we walked around the neighborhoods looking at houses decorated with Christmas lights and illuminated statues.  We saw this one house with some Santa Claus yard ornaments, a snowman, and a Mrs. Claus.

Ho ho ho! Happy holidays! Peace on Earth, yata yata.

Ho ho ho! Happy holidays! Peace on Earth, yada yada.

Pretty tame, right?  I mean, it’s Christmas!  It’s the Claus family!  Right?  Only, I found something strangely compelling about Mrs. Claus’s face.

She just looks so...

She just looks so…

...I can't stop looking...

…I can’t stop looking…

...It's like I'm caught in her gravitational pull...

…It’s like I’m caught in her gravitational pull…

...or a tractor beam, can't break free...

…or a tractor beam, can’t break free.

OH DEAR GOD!!!

OH MY GOD! I CAN SEE FOREVER!!

I can see forever.

The Old Ones were, the Old Ones are, and the Old Ones shall be.

    What a great comparison… what the eye brings to the soul and vice versa is amazing!

      Haha! Thanks. I was really glad to find a home for these photos. Bonus! I’m always happy to work in an HP Lovecraft joke whenever possible. Because I am a giant nerd.
