Don Seabrook | Scouting, planning, waiting

I’m always a bit nervous before covering the downtown Halloween trick or treat event because I’m never sure what I’ll find. What I’ve discovered over the years though is that if I’m focused and patient there can be some wonderful photographs to be found.

My process in finding those images is to scout out locations that are interesting, look for costumes people are wearing that fit the locations, then be patient and wait for something to happen when they come together.
