Halloween House "Ghosts" 2

A group of friends spend days working to make this this house and yard "haunted" and full of thrills and scares for Halloween trick-or-treaters. This year the wind was howling on Halloween. Not generally a good combination for this event. I watched the cobwebs fly and realized I could get some interesting results with my camera. I set a slow shutter and waited for the ghostly results.
