Sorry if this entry sounds like a Maurice Arcache or a Tim Yap column. It’s just so much fun to gawk and stare and photograph bohemians in my midst. They were all out there promenading, parading, preening, and just plain showing off on that night when ghouls, ghosts, witches and San Franciscans love to come out and party. Only in San Francisco folks! I wish my kids were here. They would have LOVED this.

It’s not easy being green

Dork and Mindy

Hot mama!!!

Thank God there was security!

Even royalty was partying!

This IS San Francisco!

I could even see her molecular structure!

Sail on Silver Girl!

Peace on earth goodwill to all!

Ooh la la!

Saint and sinner!

Hard to tell the angels from the vamps!

Don’t you just looove San Francisco?

0 to “Halloween!!!”

    awesome pics! those costumes were definitely better than the ones i saw on campus.

    i saw some kids on campus wearing pieces of tin foil as a costume.. i didn’t understand it at first, but i later found out that they were dressed up as burritos.. apparently, the burrito joint near campus, Chipotle, was giving free burritos to people who wore pieces of tin foil for halloween.
