Not that I like saying good bye to summer, but the calendar leaves no doubt that it's autumn again... days are getting shorter and nights are getting longer, and nature starts to make it a little easier for me by dressing up in the most colorful clothes, like you can see in the video below, showing photos I took in fall 2008 during a trip to beautiful Colorado:

And of course, all that color insipres me to create autumn stuff (just move your mouse over the image ;-)

And here's a whole carousel full of autumn stuff you might like:

Who's afraid of no Ghosts..?

To be honest, I'm not into scary experiences at all. While visiting a friend in San Diego, I joined the Halloween celebrations in the gaslamp quarter, but I had no desire to visit the Whaley House in Old San Diego (one of the most haunted houses in the U.S.), except for taking some photos from the outside.

And during a short trip across the border, it was a little strange to watch the Mexicans prepare for "El Dia de los Muertos" (Day of the Dead), celebrated the day after Halloween, just like the german equivalent (which I was familiar with), but with a lot more fun, music and colors... skeletons dressed up in all kinds of costumes, people celebrating on the gravesites and setting up altars for their deceased ones.
Go to my Squidoo lens "Ghost Time" to read on!
