‘Twas a Night Before Halloween


Evening full moon peeking over my roof, Palo Alto, CA, Oct. 2018

Halloween decorations are up and the evening streets in Palo Alto are glowing with eerie lights and frightening images. The shot above is ‘home’; the start of this photo-tour.

All the photos were taken with my hand-held Canon G1X-M3 point-and-shoot in Auto or Scene/Night Scenery and processed in Lightroom and PS CC (with finishing touches in Aurora 2018).

Cheers, Happy Holidays bloggers.
