I may not be able to afford the prize fund for a Hallowe’en photo contest this year, but I’m still interested in seeing pictures of witches, wizards and things that go bump in the night. It is Samhain, after all. As the character Brigit O’Donnell said in the Beauty and the Beast episode, “Masques,” “It’s a time when the walls between the worlds grow thin, and spirits of the Underworld walk the earth.” We seem closer to the land and its power — and, perhaps, Powers — than we are at other times. This is why I look for such photographs at this time of year.
I run groups for such pictures on both Flickr and Koinup, called (more or less) Wizards, Sorceresses and Creatures and Places of Fae. All you need is an account on one or both, and then join the group if you’re not already a member, to add your shots and share them with us all. I hope you will! Just visitors are also welcome, of course, to admire our work and leave lovely comments, tweets, faves and likes all over the place.
