Halloween is one of my favorites holidays. As I kid I always looked forward to going trick or treating even though I have never been much on eating candy...I usually ended up giving them to my mother.
When we lived in Austin, Texas my dad would take some of my friends and I to the Governors Mansion. I can still see Governor Preston Smith in his polka dot tie with his butler by his side as he personally gave each of us our candy.
We never bothered with our own neighborhood, we went to where the wealthy lived and got lots of treats :)
Over the years I have noticed that more and more people are going out of their way to decorate their homes for this holiday. Some even more so than at Christmas time.
Some seem to be in competition with their neighbors. I photographed these houses last week down North Main Street. My night vision is not what it used to be so I can not come check it out in the evening, however I am willing to bet the light show must be a sight to behold.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
