nightmare on conklin street

 

































here is but a small snippet of what is displayed on this front lawn in suburbia. this is the house erika, a fellow long islander left a comment about recently. as you can see, it really is amazing. for as long as I can remember they have gone to great lengths to elaborately decorate their entire front yard with all things halloween. if you click on the photo, you should be able to see the guillotine over on the right. better yet, take a drive over to farmingdale and see for yourself. f you like halloween as much as I do, you won't be disappointed.
if you would like to see less nightmarish daily photos, head on over to abc wednesdays. today's letter is n, and you guessed it, this one represents nightmare!

Interesting goings on in your part of the world. Quite a haunted look they have created. Thanks for visiting my world.

Pretty scary to see it at night.

Babzy said...

this is nightmare of course specially for kids but too many things and people in a little place so... not so scary ;)

Rinkly Rimes said...

Maybe this is to stop kids trick-or-treating?

I love that house! We go there every year to check it out.

What a lot of work they must put in. (But I don't like Halloween.)

That is a great shot, very impressive, the lighting is nice and spooky, I like the way the 'gown' flows, so eerie, I can just imagine little children being fascinated and scared at the same time. :-) Pgma

It's dreadful for the children, isn't it?... Or maybe they enjoy it very much! :)

That really is a nightmare. A bit too scary for me.

Some people go to great lengths to entertain kids on Halloween, but not so much here! :D

Remember the house in our old village where they had all the decorations in the frontyard? That's one thing I miss about our childhood Halloweens. Love, DoubleHawk's Sister

FABulousness! I was by there one afternoon a couple weeks ago...I need to go back at night to see it in all it's gory glory!

Denise said...

I bet all the kids in the neighborhood make their way by that house. Great photo!

not that nightmarish to me. Thanks for sharing.

Awesome posting, I have to get out and get my pumpkins. I put up tombstones in my frontyard cemetery.

Lydia said...

How fantastic! That's a wonderful Halloween gift to the community.

TSannie said...

I like Halloween displays much better than Christmas ones. Well, until the Christmas ones are put up. We have some over-the-top displays here in CT as well.

Perfect N!

I love how the ghost is standing dead center of the shot, while the rest of the decorations seem to surround it. It definitely has a nightmarish appearance. I also especially like how you see Scream's head sticking up from the ground on the bottom left-hand corner of the photo.

Oh, I'd have to cross on the other side of the street!

Erika said...

What awesome detail you get in your photos! A great angle that makes it look even spookier! They must need a LOT of candy to give away!
