Pillowcase or jack-o’-lantern bucket?
It’s Halloween time in Beacon Hill in Boston. After much consideration, I decide that I am too old to collect candy from my generous neighbors.
So I pick up my camera instead and wander through Boston’s most historic neighborhood to celebrate its annual Halloween tradition.
🎃
Since the 1970s, this is one day when the charming tree-lined streets of Beacon Hill get packed ..
.. with costumed pets and people, infants dressed as pumpkins to the elderly dressed in traditional witching gear.
Watch out for the brooms.
I run into a friend dressed up as Jamie Lannister from the Game of Thrones, complete with chopped arm hanging around his neck.
There’s a dog dressed up as a skunk.
A house on Pinckney Street is showing black-and-white Dracula movies.
Beacon Hill has the perfect Halloween atmosphere with the wrought iron, cobblestones, narrow alleys and seriously all-out decoration.
👻
So, trick or treat?
