My choice of theme for this past week’s challenge may have been just a little bit early for many, as Halloween is not out in full force everywhere. I will try to make it up to you with tomorrow’s topic.
In the United States, Halloween has become a great excuse for many adults to dress up and express their wicked selves; some of the costumes and make-up can be very elaborate, ranging from the silly to the scary. The other staple of Halloween is the pumpkin, which is often carved, so that a candle can be put inside it to light up the face or scene that has been created; in the original Irish version, a turnip or rutabaga was carved to the same effect.
The following were this week’s participants in the challenge with links to their posts:
- Judith’s post in Nature Knows Best includes both a broom and a black cat, which is a good indication that sleepy Dorking, UK may be in for some spooky fun in the weeks to come!
- Steve put the feeling of Halloween into the image in the Steve Newcomb Photography post; the photo of the house really makes me wonder, if kids will dare to cry out ‘Trick or Treat‘ at this residence for fear of being tricked…
With a promise to provide something more applicable across the entire planet, I do want to thank both contributors and readers for the first 26 weeks of Tuesday Photo Challenge!
Tomorrow’s topic is in the works….
