Witch Chasing Girl

Bryan Peterson’s great photo found in our BetterPhoto gallery reminds me of a boo boo that I once made when I was teaching preschool. A friend had given me a very scary Halloween costume which looked not unlike the witch pictured above. When I tried it on, I looked completely different and felt different. I sort of enjoyed the fact that my own children seemed to treat me with caution. However, my good sense temporarily malfunctioned and I decided to wear the costume to the preschool the next day. Before 5 minutes were up, the witch hat and mask were off in order to quiet the terribly frightened children who were frantically looking around for their teacher to save them. Whoops!
If you are thinking of taking some photos this Halloween, perhaps of the jack-o-lantern sitting on your front porch or of the children in their adorable Harry Potter or Cinderella costumes, or even a scary Darth Vadar costume, take a look at the new article by Kerry Drager, Faces to Put on Pumpkins or this article on Fun Children Photographs by Vik Orenstein.
Have a Happy Halloween!
