I don't know that there are real ghosts and goblins, but there are always more trick-or-treaters than neighborhood kids.When we moved eight years ago, we were amazed at how many more trick-or-treaters there were in this neighborhood of Downey than in our previous neighborhood. We quickly ran out of candy, and swore we'd do better the next year. Finally, this year, we had enough candy. We must have passed out more than 1,000 pieces!
I didn't get any trick-or-treater pictures this year—the light was too poor and the kids' movements too fast. But I did have a chance to photograph some of the residents at the neighborhood spooky house. Thank goodness none of them actually moved as I walked by!
From ghoulies and ghosties and long leggety beasties and things that go bump in the night, Good Lord, deliver us!
