Eugene Watt's Halloween Decorations

Mr. Watt decorates his house and yard every year at Halloween.  Yesterday, while I was taking photos of his Halloween decorations from the sidewalk, he invited me to photograph close-up.  Here are four samples.  The entire set of photos are available in my Flickr album (see link below).  Mr. Watt's home is located on the southwest corner of East Cypress Street and Hollenbeck Avenue in Covina.

You can see all the photos that I took in my special Flickr album by clicking here.
