Summer's gone...
the Fall foliage is starting to disappear...
a huge, destructive storm is imminent on the east coast...
in most places, the sun will soon set an hour sooner...

And Halloween is upon us!

Picture opportunities? They're there aplenty. This is my favourite holiday of the year, so you can bet I'll be out there getting all the pictures I can.

Thanks to Leighgion for honouring my humble submission as last week's TW3 winner!

If you must have guidelines, find them here.

I am kicking my ass! I had to drive to my Mom's and back this weekend. A 1000 kilometer round trip through central Ontario. I left home with good intentions of bringing my camera and lenses - but rushed out leaving everything on the floor in my office. And wouldn't you know it, I passed not one but two huge bull moose while driving through Algonquin Park! I feel like such an idiot!

So, no moose pictures from me but I'll see what else I can conjure up this week. Damn it! :~(

That'll learn ya! Your camera gear should be permanently bonded to your body.

...of course, that doesn't help when you forget a memory card or a battery...

:bleh: Yes, those are eyes. Perhaps this alternate view will clarify the anatomy concerns here (not for judging).

OTOH, this creature was next to that spider and you are on your own defining parts on this (also not for judging).

You definitely chose the best angle to get that spider shot Tim, and that 2nd shot must be Doc Octopumpkin.

Ok, so my team won the World Series last night and in celebration of that I have to offer this for the TW3.

Joy!

Woohoo! Very exciting for the Giants, and a neat commemorative picture. Unfortunately, we were rooting for the Tigers :p

I'll likely be keeping the computers shut down over the next couple days as a precautionary measure, at least until hurricane Sandy is done wreaking havoc around here. But I'll check back in as often as possible. Should be an interesting couple of days full of windy and rainy goodness.

Keep your head down for sure. Understand, that as much as I'm happy for my team, Detroit put up a heck of a fight and we were very afraid that their bats might wake up and beat the crud out of us. I have a great deal of respect for Detroit.

As punishment for not getting enough submissions in this TW3, you all get subjected to... CUTE PET PHOTOS!!! Muahahahahahaha!

You may not be able to tell, but Otto is wearing a Jack-O-Lantern costume:

Jack-O-Lantern


And here Alice is very clearly wearing a frog costume:

Full Of Excitement


Speaking of jumping, we did have one pet with a lot of excitement on Halloween. Here's Max attempting to break the high jump record:

Boing!

Love the costumed fur-kids FP. Otto and Alice seem really excited about the whole affair!

The rich colours in 'Autumn Path' look very appealing. (Our trees were drab yellow.)

Nice Halloween socks Tiffany!


I found this lady flying through the yard last night.
'Green Witch'


Here is the whole 'Thing'.
