Black & white photography really does give a certain “mood” to prints.
It especially gives a cemetery that added “cold as stone” feel.
My best friend took this picture of me many years ago pretending to be “Angelique Collins” from the old Dark Shadows series. We loved that show. Ironically I find I have a number of grandmothers on my French side by that very name, “Angelique!” Had I known this sooner I would have insisted my parents change my name. As you can see I lightened my hair so I could resemble her. (the picture is badly deteriorating and yes, that is a crystal ball!)
Some of my ancestors were burned as witches and I inherited it.
I am not able to name the cemeteries I photographed but know one is simply the gate from Yerkes Cemetery in Northville, Michigan. I believe the other two at the top of the crosses are from a cemetery somewhere around the Traverse City area in Michigan. All the others were taken in a cemetery in or around Calumet, Michigan. Two of the figures looked terrible the last time I was up and took these shots. Here’s an example from years before in black and white.

“They’re coming to get you Barbara….they’re coming for you Barbara….they’re coming for you…LOOK, there comes one of them now!!!”
Creepiness is in the eye of the beholder. Some are creeped out by fingernails on a blackboard, but hard to show for a photo challenge. Most are creeped out by insects like spiders, cemeteries, storms, full moons and foggy nights. I am creeped out by all evil. From the inconsiderate litterers to terrorists. They show the world what they think of themselves. When you poop on the world and others, you are really pooping on yourself.
