When I heard that 500,000 people were expected to descend on West Hollywood for their annual Halloween parade, I decided to venture up the street early to take in the spectacle before things got too wild. It was quite a scene, and everyone seemed to be having a grand time. My camera is not so great in low light, so my pictures were a disappointment, but here are a few.
At first, I was shy about taking pictures and just tried to snap as people walked by, but I quickly realized that people who put that amount of effort into a costume are more than happy to stop and vamp for the camera.
These two were my favorites by far.
By the time the sun set, it was starting to get pretty crowded and I felt like a party pooper with no costume, so I snapped a couple more and headed home.
