Crows At Your Door On A New England Day

This is by far one of my most favorite Halloween decorated homes. I drive by every year and I decided that I was going to take a picture to share!  It is so simple yet effective in casting an eeeery appearance at the front door.  I love simplicity when decorating and this is the best example of it.  Using the natural elements of nature, the branches, and the black crows (my favorite) creates a most striking front door display (having that great black door helps...love black doors).  I have a question....is it proper to just take this photo and not let the home owner know that you are publishing it?  I did remove the house number so I feel it is completely private.  I do however feel that the very creative person that did this would probably enjoy that I am so interested!  Maybe I will knock on their door and say "Hi!  You don't know me but I have a blog and I love your home and did a feature on your decorations!"  I don't think that would be to bad. 
I am really enjoying living in New England right now.  The weather and the fall colors are just amazing!  While I had my camera, I went around snapping some photo's around town while I was running errands.  I really tried to capture the colors.  One can really feel inspired by all this beauty!
Some of the best foliage display is already fading!  


Cold.....

  Go out and snap some photo's!

Gorgeous, Gorgeous, I love its simplicity and using one element in mass is always dynamic , this is a great one. I have a fun pumpkin post up today, I think you might enjoy, Kathysue

PS Love all the fall foliage of New England, being a Calif gal I have to go to the mountains to see this kind of color!!

I love your photos, and I too love New England this time of year. Our foliage hasn't quite peaked yet, but I think it will be this weekend :)

Caw, Caw, those crows look so great - a little scary - but in a Hitchcock sort of way-
Love that door. Raven Black!
