For the past number of Halloween seasons, I’ve proclaimed the posting of this photograph to be its last, but you know I can’t be trusted, so here it is again.

This jack o’lantern had reached its true potential macabre-wise when I set out to take the picture, as it had started to rot and collapse.  With lots of overhanging limbs and leaves where the pumpkin was situated, that tiny shaft of light coming in the top opening and illuminating that one discrete ‘tooth’ was pure serendipity.  That’s photography for you.  [click to enlarge]

Here are two other previously posted pictures for your Halloween pleasure.

The first, merely sinister.  The second, unrelentingly, devouringly terrifying.
