Freak Factor

First Friday of the month. This is the last Friday we are doing a regular AfterBeforeFriday Forum. Starting January, every first Friday of the month we will be featuring a single image edited by all participants.

If you want more info about the ABF Forum and how to participate in all the fun, hop to Stacy’s blog Visual Venturing

I was looking through the images for this weeks’ entry and stumbled upon this one. It just screamed at me: “Pick me! Pick me!” I don’t know why I always pick a challenging image of a poor quality, I swear I am not into all that S&M stuff. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. 😀


Anyhow, I started with no idea what to do and somehow ended with this Freaky Christmas Card. I mean, look at them. That is one freaky family. Mother with alien eyes, a slightly tipsy Father, that kid is on some bad weed and don’t even let me started on two Grandpas with their sicko faces. The only normal person is that poor little girl, which just accentuates the freaky factor of others.

This image was taken years ago on Vienna’s Christmas Market, in a children’s part of the market. Freaky, right? I don’t know about you, but I think they are awesome. 😀

Have a nice weekend, go out and enjoy Christmas decorations and seasonal festivities. And don’t spend too much money on gifts, it’s all about love and family and friendship.

  1. Hey, Loré, this Christmas card just makes me smile 🙂 I mean, you should see the ones MY family makes 😉 Hmm, come to think of it, we haven’t posed for one In years – so perhaps having this card is better than none at all, freaky or not! Anyway, your treatment works beautifully with it and makes me want to go right out and find a Viennese Xmas market!

    Thanks, by the way, for the 2015 shout out 🙂


  2. we were in Vienna for the opening of the Christmas Markets this year, it was lovely. I also think your Christmas Card is great, finally on that makes my family look normal, always appreciated. I am looking forward to seeing more of your work with the AB Forum!
