Always fun to cover an event you've heard about year after year, yet never attended.
That was the case with the great Big Halloween Parade at Patterson Park in Baltimore. I got a call from an editor to cover the event and was hyped that I'd finally have a reason to go witness the fun.
I am not one to use a flash on assignment - I'll stalk and milk ambient light for all it's worth. In addition, with higher ISO capabilities nowadays, even in darkness, files look marvelous.
So I am not sure what got into me. Maybe the need to change my routine and my seeing for the night. Whatever the case was, I broke out the small speed like and off-camera flash cord and blinded every I walked by.
While this image doesn't necessarily show the Halloween aspect of the event, it's fun to look at. And I look at holidays that way anyway. Not colorful, but once they're over...they're over.
Time to move on.
