Blog #129 The Freaks Come Out At Night

 

Halloween is a special time of year in North America.  The weather changes, and the leaves on the trees turn fiery red, pumpkin orange, Compared to the greens of summer, It’s as if mother nature turns up the volume of the color wheel to 11.

The light changes too as the low angle of the sun skims across the sky.  Colors become more contrasty, dense, and sharp.  Golden hour lasts about twice as long after the autumnal equinox.  The nip in the air is a sign of the harsh winter ahead.

Of course most folks don’t get to experience this transformation of seasons, especially those in the tropics where it’s green all year long and the seasons are either hot or hot and wet.  Nevertheless, we expats bring our traditions, no matter how wonky, everywhere we go and dressing up for Halloween is no exception.  The “Trick or Treat” that we were accustomed to as children evolves into mixed drinks and potions that walk the link between tricks or treats. It’s a fun time to dress up and feel like a kid again.  

It’s a great time to get the camera out and make some portraits to document the occasion and share the images with friends who made the effort dressing in costume.  Christine and I have made a bit of a tradition of throwing a Halloween Party and making a photo booth to capture the scary awesomeness that comes with it all.  

Check out the photos here for some creative and enjoyable memories of this year’s Halloween…Hong Kong Style. 

The light is always right.
