Every year in place of a Halloween story I share an All Hallow’s Eve night time photo of one of The Girls and this year it is our little French maiden who lives indoors with us…
This isas spooky as we get around here ~ just a bit of night photography taken with maybe a
candle or two.
The outdoor Girls masquerading around the front yard ~ *edited out light to hide indoor lighting from our Prairie Home in the background plus also lightened blacks a bit in Lightroom.
I have been wanting to shoot some photos in just candlelight for a while but usually I am taking photos right around sundown or like a few I recently took for an Instagram post when it was dark and cloudy outside.
Last year I shared this series of photographs also
featuring our French maiden. In that post I talked about past All Hallow’s Eves like when we were in Tombstone, Arizona quite literally on November 1st and did visit the graveyard there at Boot Hill.
The Jewish Cemetery and Memorial at Boot Hill, Tombstone, Arizona.
This was all when we were moving to Texas and I had just finished making about 32 soft fabric pumpkins to give as gifts to all of my friends and coworkers.
Of course I do enjoy cute fall decorations on front porches and this sweet little pumpkin I snapped just recently while up visiting my son and daughter-in-love in Sioux Falls, South Dakota!
I had just heard of stacking Cinderella pumpkins…
And I just found this photograph from 2014 of our front porch at our Big House in California.
So it was nice to finally get around to taking a few photographs in just candlelight ~ and although these are completely *unedited and I could have softened the light from the candle itself, sometimes it’s nice to just leave well enough alone.
