Halloween Past #3

A PaintShop Pro tweaked pic from our Halloween 2000 yard haunt. We had taken pics that year with one of the earliest Olympus digital cameras which had a whopping 0.8 megapixels.  It took several years to hone our yard haunt photography skills and as the digital cameras improved (and we started using a tripod) the pictures got better. Another technical "lesson learned" was to always take pics at the highest resolution possible. In the early days of our website uploading the pictures over a dial-up connection took an eternity, so for a couple of years we deliberately took lower resolution pictures to expedite the process. How the times have changed with Broadband Internet, free picture sharing websites, massive hard drive capacity, and ultra resolution digital cameras. We were pioneers back then!
