Trick or Treat


Halloween and All Saints Day is on the same day. In Sweden we celebrate Halloween with masquerade parties. On All Saints evening we visit the cemetary and put candles on the graves of our loved ones.

Last night me and my camera went out for a walk to find inspiration.



Cheers,
Asta

And what great inspiration you found! Lovely night shots, Asta. Hope you had a good Halloween.

What is the first building?

Hi Asta, that looks like a really nice atmosphere. In Germany too we put candles on the tombs, in France it's chrysanthemums.

Hi Asta,

These are very pretty. I love how in the top shot you see the lights but the sky still has a little blue left. The bottom picture is so pretty with all the candles against the dark.

Wonderful lighting on these! :-D

Beautiful! :-D

Asta said...

Thank you-:)

Jacob: The first building is an old townhouse which is now a shop. It's called 'Inferno' and the girls who own the shop is selling masquerade clothings, and different clothes for hard rockers. I think they decorated their windows very nicely.

Cheers,
Asta

Nice choice to call Inferno a place like that! Both are lovely shots, you found your inspiration!
