On Fridays we will feature special projects, photography and ideas contributed by talented seniors along with information about the Internet.

And a Happy Halloween to You!

Over the last three weeks I have had the privilege of joining a group of seniors in a Special Effects class. I am pleased to say they are Friends of the Blog so they have allowed me to feature their images as a Halloween greeting to you!

We'll start with the greeting itself from Vicki Agee's special effect of an image of spooky yard decroations tucked into some text:

Judith Olney said, "Once in a young lifetime one should be allowed to have as much sweetness as one can possibly want and hold." Jane Kennedy took an image of her grandson, who is now 17 years old, and added it to a pumpkin patch in this image with a question that gets right to the point!

Imagine a pumpkin full of candy one story high! Vicki Agee did:

And while we are imagining things, how about this marvelous image from Norma Babbitt. If you are a Photoshop user you will appreciate this one. Each little piece of the picture on its own layer, moved and manipulated into place to make it look like it is really happening!

The Surrealists knew how to create fun and spooky images as Frank Fandrick shows us here:

And thanks to Jack Murphy, Yoda was invited to the Halloween blog (notice the Star Wars pumpkin carving):

And last, but certainly not least, Harry Gareth Edward Spaulding sporting his new "boney" look at the pet parade at Petco this week.

When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam,

May luck be yours on Halloween.
