Six Photos, Six Days, Day 5

Late at night, one of those nights it is hard to sleep. You toss and turn in your bed, wallowing around in that place between wake and sleep, not sure if you’re dreaming or if it is really happening. Your body does one of those sudden twitches and convinces you that you are not actually tumbling away into darkness but living in this strange dreamland. The faceless souls that invaded your sleep are creeping to the edge of your conscience… what do they want? You have to find out… but then…. you are awake…

Real story
This is a photo from one of Sarah’s dances in her last recital. It was choreographed to have a creepy feel to it, and Sarah really got into her part. If you’d like to have an extra taste for the creepiness, click here to be taken to a youtube video of the song they danced to. You may remember that last year, the dance studio that my daughters and I attended sadly closed for business. We stayed in touch with our teacher, and she was able to find a place and the time to teach Sarah and couple friends from the studio so that they could finish their senior year of high school dancing with the woman who had been their teacher since they were little girls. In addition, Sarah got involved in one other class at the studio with another instructor. I glowed with pride when at the recital, during the finale, the teachers came forward to speak about graduating seniors. The new instuctor, who taught the class this photo is from and only knew Sarah for a year, talked about Sarah coming into the class and “taking over like a rock star!”


  1. Yep. That would creep me out a mite.

  2. This was so good. I had to listen to the song again and it all came back. Beautiful subject in the photo!

  3. A great story to match the photo, (I hope there weren’t any children in the audience, they would have nightmares!) and a heart-warming second story, the real version. 🙂

    • Thanks Joanne. An announcement actually came on during recital before the dance began to let parents of small children know that the dance could be considered scary by the little ones!

  4. Just listened to the song. Yep, that’s a little creepy alright. I love the little stories you’ve made up to go with your wonderful images.

    • This was from dress rehearsal night, so I’m sure I crept up as close as I could to get the shot! Thanks.
