Ghosts Light Up the Dark

Bouncing about San Diego, I am surprised to see some neighborhoods deck out for Halloween and others for Christmas—either/or and neither. Here in University Heights, the former is choice du jour and many residents rarely wait beyond mid-September to decorate their yards.

Yesterday, while walking after dark, I came upon ghostly decor outside an apartment building; this kind of showcase is common among homes but much less so before multi-resident dwellings.

I used Leica Q2 Monochrom to capture the Featured Image at 8:28 p.m. PDT. Vitals, aperture and shutter speed manually set: f/1.7, ISO 2500, 1/125 sec, 28mm. Based on the setup and color scheme, night in black and white works best here.
