This is one of my first long exposure photos, from way back in 2002. This old farm house in Odenton, Maryland was knocked down a few weeks after I took this photo. The yellow sky is from artificial lights [streetlights and such] reflecting off the clouds. The shutter was open, and I stood in front of the camera popping off flashes. A little over-exposed right in front of me, but not a bad shot.
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I'll be working tonight, so no trick or treating for me. However, you can check out Kim's site [warning: some artistic nudity] for some spooky artwork. And Bruce at mASS Backwards has some rules for trick-or-treaters, as does Phelps.
I really don't know how much trick-or-treating goes on here in Anchorage. We got an inch or so of snow this weekend, and although nothing would have discouraged my candy seeking initiative as a kid, I can't imagine parents being thrilled about heading out into cold. And it is cold; between 5° and 15°F [-15° to -9°C for the metric-types]. The 10-20 mph winds don't help.
In a somewhat unrelated note, I'm watching a fellow in a mask put on a scary performance on TV right now. Since the game is on OLN, I'm not sure if fans in NY can even watch the game. That'd be a shame.
