I must have been focused on something else when I took this photograph. I cannot remember what I wanted to photograph. I do not know why I ended up with this image. Since we are a few days away from Halloween I thought I’d post the photo. If you think you know what the image in photo might be, please let me know. I have reread some of Edgar Allan Poe‘s stories. It might be him with a top hat. I have always loved his short stories. My favorite is the Cask of Amontillado and the Pit and the Pendulum. What are your favorites? Please send me your responses before October 31, 2012. I have included some excerpts from some of Poe’s poems which I love as well.
