Happy Halloween to those who celebrate it! I am not in costume today, other than my “city housewife” costume, if you will. These shots were taken in the dark, under a single radiating light source.
Light has an ethereal beauty and sometimes mystical quality when the background is dark. I thought that these images would be a fun post for the season and Halloween. In the dark, you will only see my silhouette, a bit of spicy print from my belled sleeve, and a couple of statement rings that definitely go under the category of treat! And a leaf or two as tis the season.
My amber ring came from Mexico, and because it was handcrafted there, it was relatively inexpensive. It is I believe, one of a kind. A Ghost had better not take off with it. The green ring is a collectible antique, from the Edwardian era, with no repairs, all stones intact. The stones are paste- not real– but there is value in that piece of history and the beauty of the design and the workmanship.
This elaborate ring is also one of a kind from the Peacock Throne, a near where I live. Imagine if the emerald were real, now that would be a treat, but not one my wallet could afford! As it is, I love it! Below, I am in the dark. Do I hear a ghost or a rustle of leaves? Leaves, yes, I hope so!
Enjoy your night, be safe, and whenever in doubt– eat candy! I wish you many treats as Thanksgiving is just around the corner!
