Photographer's Note

For Halloween I wanted to post a photo of an early "trick-or-treater" I ran into on my recent cross-state day trip. She seemed somewhat shy as I photographed her. You can see she's blushing in embarrassment. She was saying,"Please, my hair is such a mess." But she was just so perfectly in the Halloween spirit I insisted she let me photograph her to share with people all around the world. Finally she agreed to let me take a couple photographs of her decked out for the holiday.

Halloween is a fun end to October. Not officially a holiday recognized by the US Government it is probably one of the most, if not the most, popular holidays in the opinion of many people. Perhaps it's the mix of dressing up and being with friends and memories of going door to door as a child for candy and treats.

Ionia seems like the perfect kind of town to go door to door "trick or treating". The main street is a quaint grouping of buildings with a red-brick road. Turn of the century homes line the streets as do trees and lots and lots of leaves fallen from the trees. All along the main street they had these figures set up attached to light posts and newspaper stands to get the town further into the spirit.

And this one was, as I said, kind enough to allow me to photograph her. And in gratitude I gave her a treat.
