Photo Hunt category this week: "SAD"

The only thing I could think of depicting the week's prompt is a photo of a pencil sketch I already posted a few weeks ago along with some of my other sketches [the link should open in a new page if you'd like to view more]...it's of the 'sad faced' Emmett the Clown. I tend to stay away from 'sad' if I can!

[comment here if you'd like to skip my Halloween Treats posted below]



<><><>

Last year, I started a tradition of handing out "treats" and not tricks for my commentors. I will again do the same. If you leave comments for me for anytime during the week, I will choose three to five of those that leave a sweet treat for me in the comments! [the sweet treat being kind words!] But to be fair to all the others, just don't grab this for yourself...it's not something for everyone...you have to be picked as you come knocking on my door blog comment link...and actually LEAVE a comment. I then will pick the recipients. And don't feel cheated, I am going to hand them out daily up until Halloween!!! You have all month to be chosen.

So, check back often, you're name may show up here!
To begin my traditional fun, as I love Halloween, today's recipients will be:

Sue
Betty
Melli
Larry

AND!---here is your treat:

[just click on the treat and then it'll open in a new window...grab it there and save it if you'd like to.]

PS ---storyteller, aka Virginia, has written many-a-haiku and all of which I've really enjoyed. A lot!! This past week, she wrote one about Hootin' Anni. I so love this! It was a surprise and with her talents, I feel very honored! Stop by here...and don't forget to leave her a comment, just because!!

  1. Yea, sad's a tough one I think. Like the sketch, even if he is a sad clown. I chose sketches myself for sad this week too - sketches that my son has draw.

    Have a good weekend, H.A.

  13. i agree with shadow.. a clown look so much sadder when sad. it is weird. i feel sad jus looking at the sketch. most of the photohunters dont really deal with sadness so directly. i avoided it too as I dont like sad.

  16. Good morning Miss Annie, I like the sketch. sad clowns always seem like the utimate oxymoron to me. Good choice. And I try to stay away from sad too, but sometimes it just finds me.

    ReplyDelete

  24. Great take on this week's theme! I'm like you in that I don't "do" sad ;)

    Thanks for visiting my blog & for the comment :) The part you wrote about ice cream almost made me bust a gut, LOL!

    Hope you have a great weekend :)

  25. Great take on the theme and very nice sketch. Emmett was a true artist. His every look and move bespoke his character. He searched for the understanding of things around him, seemingly lost, but he would always find the true connection that we seldom attain. Even with his sad face we could see the pure enjoyment in his appreciation and acceptance of the simplest of things. He was simply marvelous in the same vein of Charlie Chaplin's Tramp.

  27. Anni,

    I love the sad-faced clown. We are all blessed with certain talents and yours are so creative. Great Photo Hunt.

    I read the haiku at Small Reflections and thought the tribute was perfect. She did a great job with it.

    Take care. It's a cloudy day here and I expect more rain. Very chilly. Will email you later.Enjoy your Saturday.

    Blessings,
    Mary

  28. I generally don't "do" sad, either, so this week's theme is way out of my comfort zone - a good stretch, though, I suppose.

    I love your sketch, Anni - I knew that you're talented, but I didn't realize that you're so artistic, too! Beautifully rendered and perfect for the theme!

    Thanks for stopping by - always nice to hear from you!

  31. Emmett was a sad chap for sure. I'm getting depressed looking at these blogs. Think I've had enough sadness for one day. My son is home visiting and I want to be glad!

  32. Knock knock knock on your door Anni,
    Who's there?
    A little old lady who is not blogging, but would like to leave a comment anyways =
    You are one talented woman, Your sketches of which I have seen several are all very personal, and different from what one usually see- wonder where you have your skills from?
    And that goes for everything you set your mind and head to.
    This clown brings back some sad memories, when looking at him- and you know why!!
    Thank you for all your lively Halloween things-unfortunately we don't have much of that here in Denmark-yet. So it is wonderful to see your devotion to this time of year when so much in the nature is waving goodbye
    and the winter is knocking on our door.
    With love as always
    Mutti

  37. Wow ... thanks for the linky love. Knowing how you enjoy my Haiku, it seemed the best place to share your wonderful gift. I'm delighted that you enjoyed it enough to share in this way.

    I’m with you in ‘avoiding sad whenever possible’ … but I do like your sketch and I managed to put together a few ‘sad’ things at Sacred Ruminations. I have ‘happier’ stuph at Small Reflections ;--)
    Hugs and blessings,

  50. Interesting that your entry this week is like an amalgamation of tnchick's (a sketch) and someone else's I saw (of a sad clown). Great minds think alike, I guess... ;b
