Yes folks, it's that time of the year again already. Ripp-o-ween 2007 was shall we say.. epic? Yes. I think epic is the word to use. Or maybe "EPIC!!!" with three exclamation points. Anyway, as you can see, I took a lot of pictures this year and they are pure photographic gold. I was pretty liberal about what pictures I let through to the final cut because with something like Ripp-o-ween, more is more. Because of this, you might notice a few pictures that are almost the same, but look closely and you'll see some differences, even if they're a little subtle. It's worth it.

As always, feel free to use these pictures wherever you want, just be sure to link to my site!
