Henry Clay's Sarcophagus


Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Lexington, Kentucky

Yeah, I know, normally, I get right up there and practically jam the lens through the wire to get the shot, but what can I tell you? This one gave me the wig. Badly. I just could not make myself get any closer.

Witch Day!

Book of Love - Witchcraft

Frank Sinatra - Witchcraft

Steve Lawrence - Bewitched

Screamin Jay Hawkins - I Put a Spell On You

Henry Clay always reminds me of Lon Chaney in the Phantom of the opera. I'm not sure why.

I don't blame you, as The Great Compromiser was a little creepy looking.

Everything I read about him makes him sound like such a genuinely wonderful man that I feel bad jumping when I see pictures of him.

I have very, very rarely found myself running back to the car from various ... um, jaunts through cemeteries. I won't say I ran back after taking this, but it was downhill all the way to the car, so it gave me a bit of an excuse for the speed I worked up.

Whoa... he was a creepy looker. I bet if you popped open his sarcophagus today he'd look exactly the same lying there. That is, just before he rose up from his moldy pillow and grabbed you by the hair for a kiss.

Dane said...

Oh, you charmer. :D

I love Book of Love, but had never heard "Witchcraft" by them, thanks for sharing!

Dane said...

You're welcome! It's such a cute song.

Sparkleneely said...

Creepy!!! But the songs are FANTASTIC. Have you heard the duet of Frank and Elvis where Elvis sings "Witchcraft" and Frank sings "Love Me Tender"?

Dane said...

I have not!! Where may I listen to such a thing?

Disclaimer:

Music is posted for a short time, and while I use it in part to (hopefully, though not always) go along with the theme of the photo, I also post it in hopes someone will give it a try and fall in love with it as I have. Perhaps they will then seek out more by the artist and buy more cds. That's how it works with me, anyway. If you like it, pick it up at the store; support the artists you love.
