Coulrophobia: Fear of Clowns

“Death’s gruesome face taunts:
soulless eyes, crimson grimace.
I really hate clowns.”

Angry Bird

“Television has done much for psychiatry by spreading information about it, as well as contributing to the need for it.”
— Alfred Hitchcock

Halloween is just over a week away, so today’s photo is another Halloween-themed desktop wallpaper. This wallpaper may appeal to those who are fans of Alfred Hitchcock and particularly his film, “The Birds”. The first time I watched the movie was with my parents when I was pretty young. At one point in the film, I was instructed to close my eyes or leave the room. Watching it again a few years later, I learned my parents had attempted to shield my young eyes from viewing a citizen of Bodega Bay being robbed of hers by angry birds. I will spare my younger sister any embarrassment that may be associated with revealing her particular issues with this classic film.

“The Birds” was the first horror movie I remember ever watching. What was yours?

Beware The Claw

In reality, it’s a simple piece of farm equipment. But taken out of context, it’s a horror movie plot waiting to be … um … executed. In any context, it fascinated me and I couldn’t wait to see what it looked like photographed.
