Hello. Is There Anybody In There? (114/365)

"Houses are not haunted. We are haunted, and regardless of the architecture with which we surround ourselves, our ghosts stay with us until we ourselves are ghosts."

Velocity, Dean Koontz (American, novelist, short story writer, screenwriter, b1945)

TIME: 8:26 PM
PLACE: Corner of North 2nd and Carr Street, St. Louis, MO
SUBJECT: Windows

Yea for another date night!  I looked forward to this night all week long.  HandsomeHusband and I went to Lumiere Place in St. Louis and met up with a friend and her daughter.  We ate at the Burger Bar - mmmmmm, expensive burgers!  Then we each lost $20 in the evil gambling devices.  HH made his last about 20 minutes while mine flew away in less than 5.  We left soon after.  I'm not a big gambler - I'm an accountant for heaven's sake!  My mom had the gambling gene and she passed it to my sister instead of me.

As we crossed the street to get to the parking lot and our car, HH pointed out that these windows would make a good photo.  They do have character - spooky character!  I'm not sure if I captured the mood I wanted.  Night pictures are soooo difficult and I was getting confused on my camera settings.  <sarcasm on> Shocking, I know. <sarcasm off>

I always love old buildings, dilapidated or not. This is a really neat shot!

Oz Girl - I have always liked to imagine the people and things that happened in the old buildings.
