  1. 1. Autumn Palette
    2. Fall Harvest
    3. Oh, What a Fright!

    Please distinguish between #1 and #2.
    I don’t take any scary pix, so am wondering what the arts council has in mind,
    or is this something known to kids, like S’mores, unknown to me.

    I really like the fact that it doesn’t set a limit as to when the pix were taken.
