Halfway to Winter

Halloween marks the midpoint between autumn and winter. In the past week it has definitely turned more towards winter as many of the leaves are down. Two weeks ago I captured these trees with all the leaves still on the limbs.

No bright blue skies today; the rains are coming in

But it’s a schizophrenic time. There are still flowers in bloom. I guess that’s what makes Halloween so interesting; not fall but not winter either.

With Halloween tomorrow I hoped to get a few shots of Jack ‘O Lanterns on today’s walk.

Not sure what this is supposed to be

I couldn’t figure out what this was until I downloaded the picture to my computer

Crazy scary!

Interesting: painted, not carved

A classic

 Here’s my punkin; I’ve got to figure out what to do with it.

As usual my craftsmanship doesn’t match my vision. I wanted a big clown mouth and my theory on Jack ‘O Laterns is that that the bigger openings the better. I think I made the mouth too big; I wish the candle wasn’t so visible. Maybe pumpkin is not my media.
Carla did a nice job on getting the crazy sideways looking guy.
