Halloween is right around the corner and the stores are loaded with bags of candy for trick-or-treaters.
I love my weekly photo challenges and I couldn’t believe that the planets (or pumpkins?) aligned for a photo challenge trifecta!
Nothing is more nostalgic than a bowl of candy for Halloween. I remember loving Tootsie Rolls and Tootsie Pops as a kid.
According to the Tootsie Roll Industries’ company history, Leo Hirschfeld began selling the chewy candies in his little shop in New York City in 1896.
We buy the huge bag and donate most of it to our church’s Harvest/Halloween Festival, then distribute some to the neighborhood trick-or-treaters.
The Photo Challenge
If you follow my blog, I rarely miss the opportunity to post in the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. This week’s theme is Nostalgia.
Jennifer Nichole Wells has THEE best photo challenges, and she puts in a lot of work to organize and host these. This whole month is about all things Halloween and today’s prompt is Candy!
This is my first submission for the Macro Moments Challenge: week 13 hosted by the lovely Musin with Susan’s Blog The close-up of the candy was fun to shoot with my trusty Samsung Galaxy 5.
I created this graphic with one of my images in PicMonkey for sharing at link parties. If you are wondering how to do this, check out my eBook, Better Blogging with Photography available for 99 cents on Amazon.
