Halloween/Fall Decorations

I hope the week has started well with you, today was a struggle to get moving after a long weekend but I managed to drag myself out of bd and get moving on schedule, when the days are so short its harder to get motivated knowing when I get to the city it will be before sunrise and still fairly dark so I won’t be getting a morning walk in before heading to the office, but I still like going in early then I don’t feel bad sneaking out for a short walk mid-morning and after lunch :)

Today on my walks I noticed all of the cute fall and not so cute Halloween decorations in shop windows and on the street so that's what I will focus on for this post.
Speaking of walking Just loops not too far from the office today so nothing exciting to report but managed to hit my step goal for the day :)

Starting with some Halloween Decoration above the entrance top Paddy Macquires Irish Pub taken last week

I liked the full shot of it in Mono edit, but decided to share a closer in shot with color Incase anyone was interested.
Personally i think it looks more dramatic in Mono, what do you think?

I love Halloween and all the decorations. These are awesome!

Thanks they are cool to see

Halloween started early this year in the stores, howerver we don’t se much of it outside so this was really cool to se 😉
I Loove the hay kids... Really cute.
The scary monsters are cool but the one in black&white is really scary 😁 made it more somehow.. Lol
Hope you didn't get spooked my friend 😂 lol
Thank you for sharing Jay and have a wonderful week. Much love 🤗🌹

Lol no I didn’t get spooked 😱 lol 😂
I never saw much Halloween stuff till coming here never had it back in NZ when I was growing up

Have a great day

Gorgeous decos. I think alot will turn up with the Joker's make up :)

That could well be true

Wow, those are super creepy! I hear you. As the weather gets cooler you get into that stay inside and cuddle up mode. It is awesome for the weekends, but it makes the weekdays so much harder to get up and moving!

Yeah weekends i an get out and about during the day but makes it a challenge on work days to get my steps in

Can we be inspired by your photo 2 to draw a picture? I promise to dedicate it to you Lol

Of course that would be fine and fun to see :)

Wow! Great shots JJ and they should all be in magazines my friend.

Thanks so kind of your o say and I hope your day is going well

I am serious JJ, you should market those photos.
Although I have no idea what marketing is, as I have never sold a photo.
But I am sure some or other mag will be interested in yours as they are great.

I have sold a few photos here and there, I add the ones i really like onto my website but honestly do not do much on the marketing side, but thats something i will make the time for when I have more free time next year


I bet that you are looking forward to next year my brother.
Once the move is done you will all of a sudden have a lot of free time.
No more trudging off to work every day.

Ohh yes I am looking forward to setting my own routine but also dreading well dreading is not the right word just wondering how I will adjust after so long in the same routine but that said I have been slowing down work wise over the last year so won’t be to hard lol


Well, just make sure of one thing, that you stay active.
Let me tell you something that is strange to me. Since we moved in here about 3 months now, we have become totally isolated. I stay at home more often and it is almost like we have been imprisoned.
My leg pains prevent long walks and at times I don't know what to do, as we are used to very busy and active lives.
But here's the strange thing, I am slowly starting to get used to it.
Change needs to be accepted otherwise it causes discontent and we simply have to do the best we can in any situation.

Ohh I think I will stay active it is how I have always bene and now with my wife starting to try and get her steps in each day it will be good that we can go for walks together each day and motivate each other

I think with change you do adapt even if it is hard at the start

And yes acceptance f the change is the key


In reply to the photos through the window, I think the mono helps alleviate any distractions from reflections that the color one has.

And the shorter days are annoying. Get to work in the dark. Leave work in the dark. I much prefer to have sunlight, at least after work.

Ohh yes i am the same I get ftustrated with the short days, I get my walks in the mornings so thats what is more frustrating for me

That is very cool
