Halloween 666 Series #6: Halloween Bicycle Parade

This was fun – I pulled out all the stops this year because I am so relieved (and eternally thankful) that we are healing from last year with its Smoke, Pandemic, Trump / Politics, Power Outages due to Fire Danger – have I left anything out? Now lets pray for rain. I expect to do one Thanksgiving / Christmas set and photo shoot –…

He might have had some existing mental health issues – but his substance abuse and unending grieving seemed to drive him mad and over the top. He was a very…
