Later that day, Miika sent this picture with a note asking if we live in LA now.

Hallowe'en pumpkins and trick-or-treat timelapse

Once again, Phillip and Beca Mitchell organized a massive pumpkin carving event resulting in a fantastic Jack o' Lantern display on the bridge. And once again, Scott Westall outdid himself (and everyone else) with an elaborate three-pumpkin tableaux. You might want to click on this to see it bigger.
