So there I was on Halloween afternoon, working alone, with no one here to even notice that I’m wearing my cool skeleton socks (*sniffle), feeling bummed that I didn’t carve a pumpkin or get out my bat chandelier this year.
You know how when you’re working “in the zone” you’re only peripherally aware of what’s going on around you? As I wrote, I slowly became aware of odd noises outside my window. When I looked out, I saw a HUGE flock of ravens. Baltimore ravens! And no, I don’t mean:
Hundreds of them! Whatever the Halloween equivalent of Christmas cheer is, I felt it. I grabbed my camera and ran outside, but they had all flown several blocks away. I kept working, and about an hour later I heard them again. I grabbed my 85mm lens and dashed outside.
It was a happy Halloween after all! I think I’ll print some of these poster-size and hang them up next year.
Happy Halloween everyone!
