Last Friday evening, Carol and I joined my granddaughter Ava at her school for “Trunk or Treat,” a pre-Halloween event in which the kids got to do a little trick-or-treating in the school parking lot, where a great number of parents had parked their decorated cars, trucks and other vehicles. Candy was available for the kids, but for me, the decorated trunks of the cars were the points of interest.
There were some creative panoramas set up, and since everything was small scale, trunk-sized if you will, it made for a veritable smorgasbord of photo opportunities. As we made our way around the circuit of cars, I had the camera out and snapped a bunch of photos of the decorations – close up. By getting in close, and taking the displays out of the context of the parking lot, I captured some interesting shots.
Here’s one that captures the “spirit” of the season.
