I collected some photo ideas and inspiration for your Halloween images. Have you taken any creepy or fun self-portraits or portraits in the past few days?
What about some pumpkin and Photoshop fun? Love these images by Joel and Amy
I really like simple portraits with a moody background, orange props add some color:
Halloween is also the perfect excuse to create a clone image, have you ever tried one of those?
Also, now is the time to buy fake cowebs for some creepy portraits.

I will take a Halloween self-portrait for my 52weeks project this weekend. Happy Halloween everyone!
Sunrise in Tyrol, Austria. These were taken early on a Friday morning on a mountain nearby that we hiked in the moonlight. It was beautiful (but very cold!).
Color powder fun from two weeks ago when I took some portraits of my sister. Have a great week everyone!
Fall is my favorite season because of various reasons, in particular, but not limited to:
- autumn sun (especially after all the rain we had during summer)
- apple pie
- various other pies and cakes with homegrown fruits
- tea & reading a book
- knitting (I just started again after 10 years and I am happy to report that knitting is like cycling – you don’t unlearn it!)
- colorful landscapes
- the smell of autumn
- the sound of dry leaves on a windy autumn day
- autumn hiking
I just recently finished reading Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. And while I’m not really interested in circus life I decided to give this one a try. Partly because I heard it was good and I liked the cover image and partly because I enjoy reading a book before watching the movie (I’m really late on the bandwagon, I know …).
It’s a story about a young man, Jacob who needs to start a new life and somehow ends up in a circus where he falls in love with Marlena.
The beginning really gets you into the story immediately, I love when an author does that. The story itself is nice, though the end was a bit cheesy for my taste. But overall I enjoyed reading this book knowing that Sara Gruen did a lot of research and that everything easily could have happened in real life.
Did you read the book or watch the movie? What are your thoughts on either of them?
