It’s funny how your frame of mind can influence how you see an image. Take today’s feature image, for example: A wonderful photo with great contrast, leading lines and light. However, when we put it into a Halloween context, it can be kind of creepy, right? The same might be said for a lot of today’s images if you approach them with that mood in mind. Leave us a message down below with what you see in some of these images.

Meanwhile, this should be an epic weekend for photography with Halloween on Saturday and Día de Muertos, or Day of the Dead, on Sunday. The DC Focused Meetup group will be in Mount Pleasant on Sunday for the Día de Muertos festivities. Also be sure to enter this week’s Instagram challenge “Costume Time” with any photos of people getting their spooky on.

Featured image, Untitled by Kevin Wolf is part of the DC Focused flickr pool. More photos from the pool below.
