Great Halloween theme, Tabatha. Scary images all. The Howard Pyle image really reminds me of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

I looked at the images first in large scale (before looking at the titles) and thought that the Hungry Ghost Festival was a drawing, not a photograph. It seemed really eerie.
