Scary Tree


This tree looked so scary. It looked like a tree that has come alive and trying to get me. Yikes!

I was trying to capture a nice photo for skywatch while walking along Coleman Street. Then when I view the photo through my camera, I realised the tree looked scary. So I told hubby and both of us looked up again at the tree and I pointed to hubby that the branches are like limbs.

Then suddenly, we were surrounded by 5 or 6 people looking up at the tree too....lol. Hubby and me walked away laughing....hahaha. These people must be wondering what is happening up there...lol.

Oh this tree is located in the compound of a famous church in Coleman street which I will showcase on My World Tuesday. The church is very old and very beautiful. Please return to visit on Tuesday. :)
For other sky watchers, please hop over to Skywatch blog.

It looks alive Alice. Maybe related to the trees on LOTR.

Alice: Sky Watch does make you look up more often and this is a neat capture.

Interesting tree! What could be the story behind that. :) Beautiful for skywatchers.

Hope you didn't call out your husband's name. otherwise the Pontianak will come at night for him. LOL`

This was what we were told to believe growing up in Borneo. On the way to the airport, we had to drive past a few cemetaries. My mum would tell us to be quiet, and not call out each other's name.

We really believe in her.

Cheers,

Ann

p/s where is Coleman Street? Coleman is a brand of mustard isn't it?

Thanks all for the visit and comments. :)

Yes, I love the Lord of the Rings, it could be one of the tree from LOTR...hehehe.

Ann, Coleman Street is where Peninsula Plaza, St. Andrew Cathedral is located. I will featured more about Coleman Street next week.

XUE said...

Are you referring to CHJIMES? That is a scary tree & I can see in my mind, the little crowd that gathered around you!

Anya said...

Its a funny tree and scary
( its just a tree from a Harry Potter movie)....

alicesg said...

Xue, it is not chjimes, it is St. Andrew's Cathedral. Chjimes is one street away.

I love the way the leaves look like delicate fronds...

Indrani said...

That is funny, every body looking up seeing you both doing it. :)
Great shot!

Karen said...

I agree, the little tendrils and hairy trunk are kind of creepy, especially in silhouette! Oh no, am I going to have nightmares now?!

SandyCarlson said...

I see the scary being, too. Great shot, Alice.

Tabib said...
