2001 - 2003
Nothing elaborate in 2001. As usual, Herb overlooks from the balcony.
I also added the other skeleton to my car, and opted for a plastic
jack-o-lantern instead of the real ones that self-petrified the year
This year I also put some interesting lighting effects in the window,
and a "fluid projector" shining up onto the wall above the view on
the right. I also started using lanterns as well.
The flash from the camera obviously washes everything out.
I did almost exactly the same thing in 2001 and 2002, and didn't bother taking
additional pictures (that I can find). I've been increasingly frustrated or
discouraged with the lack of interest in the holiday in my neighborhood. I'll
see some jack-o-lanterns and unadorned pumpkins, but not much else. Also, for the
years 2000 through 2003, I had exactly two knocks on my door each time.
