Halloween ghost. I took my camera and tripod out once again on Halloween night. I was hoping to find some people out partying in costumes. I thought I could get cool portraits, if I could get them to stay still for a time exposure. I saw maybe three people in costume during the entire walk through the East Village. And for most of that time the streets were eerily empty. I didn’t feel threatened, but I was a bit spooked.
Halloween moon on Houston Street. The moon provided some lighting but most of the highlights came from car headlights. I was doing exposures ranging from 1 to 10 seconds. The tripod I took was lightweight, which was the only feasible choice for trekking around in the dark. It was fine for the most part but any minor jarring would ruing the crispness of the image.

An excellent video shot from several different ground perspectives. I think the videographer was on a skateboard.
