Haunted Halloween by Celeste Mookherjee

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

This is a fantasy reworking of a fog-bound image I posted in 2011 (see below). The very real Gothic-style building is the Villa Riviera, a Long Beach, California landmark built in 1929 and renovated a few years ago. It didn’t occur to me at the time to create a Halloween card from the foggy and slightly spooky image, but I took care of that the following year. :) The whimsical fantasy Halloween elements are from free picture fonts I found on the web, with bits of the actual fog worked in to bring everything together (available in greeting card and postcard styles). (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 70-300mm zoom at 89mm, f/7.1, 1/2500 sec., ISO 100, fog plus late afternoon sun, handheld)

Dedicated to all the little children who love to dress up as a favorite character and go out trick-or-treating!
