halloween skywatch





happy halloween everyone! this is the twin from that house I posted about in farmingdale. I took this photograph the same day. when I saw the sky in the background I decided then that this had to be my skywatch for halloween. the homeowners have these white robed skeletons positioned at their front gates and in the corners of their yard. they look so theatrical to me, especially when the wind starts blowing their robes, they actually look like they are moving. it makes me laugh. I imagine that whoever decorates this property has a really good time doing so.
please go here if you would like to see more skies from around the world.

Happy Halloween,

Hope it's OK, I borrowed your Oct 25 shot of kiddie costumes on display for the top of my front page for a day or so... (Esp because my own camera is broken!)

See: http://www.nutsinny.com/

Thanks so much, great pic.

Best, David
