Theme Thursday -- halloween

Halloween is the subject of this weeks Theme Thursday. I had to really give some thought to what I would post this week. I debated on writing about what Halloween was like back in the dark ages when I was a child. I contemplated a piece on how the holiday has changed over the course of my lifetime. Then I considered taking my camera around town so I could show all of you how a small rural town decorates for the season. In the end I decided to showcase some photos that had nothing at all to do with Halloween at the time they were taken but certainly give that sense that the little ghost and goblins will be ringing the doorbell anytime now

This first shot is of the Old Salt and his brother checking out the jack-o-lantern sculpture at Laumeire sculpure Park in St. Louis.

Next we have some very Halloween-ish looking hot air balloons what we captured recently at the Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque.
