The World is Scary

October 31, 2014 13 Comments »

Every country has them…abandoned scary places. Places that give you goose bumps and make the hair on the back of your neck prickle. For Halloween I thought I’d compile my best scary and creepy pictures from around the globe. It’s heavy on abandoned buildings and cemeteries since those are two things I love to photograph.

Let’s hope you don’t ever get stuck in some of these place alone at night! Trick or Treat!
