Spooky houses: Normal Heights
Photos of Halloween houses
Halloween decorations went up early this month, but more and more houses are putting out their scary props for trick-or-treaters, and I expect more spooky house fronts by Wednesday night. Here are a few I snapped on my afternoon walk with the dog in Normal Heights.
An enormous spider made out of poles, trash bags, plastic, and paint.
Mummified, cocooned corpse and a skeletal Grim Reaper lurking in the shadows.
Symbolic and political graveyard.
Half-buried half-dead graveyard.
And finally, adorable miniature ghosts blowing in the trees.
