Autumn is my favorite time of year, as it is for many. It's a time of embracing melancholy, a time of acknowledging decay and our own mortalities. It's bitter and it's sweet.

This year I was going to refrain from posts about Autumn and Hallowe'en. But with encouragement from my cyber friend Tam B, I've decided to really embrace the theme, as my archives are bursting with eclectic images that demonstrate darkness, death and decay, yet many are sparked with accents of light and love.
I avoid horror and violence in my collections, but I adore the spooky and strange. Some of my images may not be obvious to the theme, but resonate with me in some way.
This will be my countdown to Hallowe'en.
