The neighbour across the street erected a rather impressive 20' (I think) skeleton. The skull and rib cage light up, and I decided that it was very photo-worthy.
The lights flicker, so I took a number of photos to make sure of capturing them in their 'on' state. Then I took a brighter exposure so we could see a bit of the skeleton in addition to the lights. I blended the two photos together in Photoshop, and I think we have an effective result.
As usual, we shall be grinches tonight as we turn out the lights on those darn trick-or-treaters. Our street gets flooded with hordes of kids on Halloween, who don't even live here. One year, after running out of treats although we had purchased hundreds, we gave up. It wasn't a great loss as Halloween had never been a huge deal for us.
It is the night, sometimes the first one of the season, that we make sure to put the car in the garage. It is not that we live in a community that is overrun by abominable delinquents, but it doesn't hurt to err on the side of caution on this night. This year, it is the third night of putting the car in the garage because we had our first snow on Sunday night.
