Classic American house from the 50's or creepy abandoned asylum? The choice is yours... just depends on how your mind works. I personally can't help but imagine something heinous going on in it at one time or another... guess that's just how my mind works (I've watched way too many movies). Plus the outline of the doors where they meet forms an upside down cross... which someone recently pointed out to me. I've been told this is the creepiest/scariest photo I've taken so I just had to upload it to the Creepy theme... seemed too perfect to pass up. Hope you enjoy...
