Why Halloween in Salem!

“In 2013, I had haunted house assignment in Salem, MA, a couple of days before Halloween. When I was done, I hung out for about 15 minutes and I made these few images.

If you’ve never had the opportunity of doing so I highly recommend you go spend Halloween in Salem, MA. It’s a visual candy story.

Today was nowhere near as packed as it’ll be tomorrow night and even still pictures were everywhere. I wish I had had more time to spend.
