Ghoulish Fun

 

ghoulish moments

 

 

Last month I travelled up to Yorkshire to join friends for a Halloween party. We’re a bunch of pagans who see this time as special, Samhain. The veil between our world and the next is thinnest, the winter truly begun. But we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We spent time just being together, chatting, laughing, remembering those of us who have already gone to the other side. My friends have a great sense of humour.their garden became a magnet for me because of course, I’d taken my camera. Someone brought fireworks, and my hosts had ‘decorated the garden. So today some ghoulish shots that we had to have some fun with. Here they are to share with you. As the ‘models’ were plastic, I’ve found the slightly blurred shots more convincing than the completely in focus ones.

 

It's cold outside!

Can I have a toffee apple?

The fireworks were quite funny, as some were from last year. We stood waiting for huge explosions and sometimes only got a fizzle. All the funnier after a few party beverages, of course. The party animals thought this next idea was hilarious. As I was taking long exposures I couldn’t see the results until I reviewed them. It’s time we all smiled more!

 

I wonder what they were trying to paint with light?

One firework that worked

    The ‘toffee apple’ pic could make a good cover for something I’m thinking of self-publishing!
