Happy Halloween to those of you who enjoy it. I got out for a while Saturday to shoot the massive street party in our Central West End district. Not the best year for images at the event. It gets more crowded every year and I had some kind of bug. Still, there were a few keepers.
This isn't a holiday that appeals to me. I don't like being scared, naturally or artificially. No slasher movies, no Trump websites. As far as I'm concerned, you can save all these grisly memento mori references for an ascetic monk's hut.
Goofy costumes are okay. The only time I've done that as an adult was at a party thrown by a colleague. I made a mitre out of cardboard, put MasterCard and Visa logos on it, bought a Los Angeles Angels baseball jersey and went as the pope.
