Happy Halloween 2016
Somewhere back in my memory of Halloween I remember being dressed as a ghost and running in snow with a overstuffed Safeway sack filled with candy.
We kids knew we needed to ditch the big bags of candy and go to the doorstep of the next house with nothing but pitiful looks and empty bags in order to get even more treats.
Flash forward a few years and I am walking through my parents door with my family of 4 - we were all dressed up and we were all a sight. Our intention was to pay visit to my aging parents and brighten their otherwise slow Halloween. And it worked very well, another cherished memory in the books.
More recently having landed in Aurora I now have the yearly phenomenon of "Scare the Square" which as a photographer has provided great memories of all sorts of little beings. I am always happy to oblige when the opportunity to preserve the Halloween memory comes along, no candy however, but if you stand in front of me for 250th of a second I may get to hand you a photo of you when you were frighteningly cute!
When you light your candles this evening I hope you have fond memories of those who are no longer with us but whose spirits surround us in love this Halloween night! Happy Halloween Everyone!
