Weekly Photo Challenge: Eerie

This week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post @ WordPress.com is all about being “eerie.”    Obviously, this is in keeping with the now-passed Halloween holiday.

This weekend I was visiting the Raleigh/Durham area of North Carolina for a wedding.  The railroad crossing from which this photo was taken is very close to the hotel in which I was staying. North Carolina is resplendent in its fall colors, but this shot converted to black and white, becomes particularly eerie.

What I  like is that the far distance of the shot leaves a lot to the imagination.  Just what is it that is seemingly coming towards you from the shadows?

I’ll give you a hint – it’s not the Waffle House restaurant that is just to my left as I take this shot!
