The First Halloween Parade in Hudson, sponsored by COARC, Hudson Department of Youth and the Greenport Rescue Squad kicked off at 5:30 at 5th and headed down Warren Street to Promenade Hill Center where an all-ages Costume Contest was held. It was preceded by trick-or-treating by young and old in Warren Street shops that sported a Halloween-Whale logo (only in Hudson.) There was also a Haunted House for most and a “Pumpkin Patch” (less frightening) for the little ones!

‘The haunting animal portraits of the American Elliot Ross question our relation to other creatures and the ways we perceive the animal world’. Manfred Zollner in fotoMAGAZIN
Elliot exhibited prints from “Animal” at the Davis Orton Gallery in June. The gallery has a selection of matted prints available.
Ernie Button’s portfolio, “Back and Forth” has been published in the online magazine, F-Stop Magazine.
According to Button, “Changes in society aren’t always obvious. Sometimes they can be very subtle. The grocery store rides that many of us enjoyed as children are slowly disappearing from the urban landscape. That mechanical horse or the spaceship ride made a trip to the grocery store bearable as a child but now seems hard to find.” Five years ago, Button began his project of photographing these rides in black and white. He has returned to the same locations and shot roughly the same frame in color – perhaps at a different time of day or slightly different perspective – all to suggest change and the passing of time.
F-STOP MAGAZINE is an online photography magazine featuring contemporary photography from established and emerging photographers from around the world. Each issue has a theme or an idea that the unites the photographs to create a dynamic dialogue among the artists.
Published online, bi-monthly since 2002.
