RIP October! Here are all our secretive, spooky, shady backgrounds from this month.

    I just love the second to last one. Every time I drive by a giant skyscraper or a hotel at night with some of the windows lit I wonder who’s in there, what they’re doing, what their story is… Possibly just my writer side trying to make a character out of every living being, but eh.

    The month got away so fast… (Couldn’t catch it!)

    Wonderful, wonderful pictures this month! I was hanging out for today so they’d all be there for me to look at! Now the only tricky thing is choosing which one to be my background…

    I always look up at hotels; I’m so curious to see if anyone is standing on their balcony, doing silly things, isolated from the world… I always like to do stupid things on hotel balconies, to see if anyone will notice. Thus far, only an old lady sitting drinking tea on a balcony in Ulaanbaatar noticed that my flip-flops and latte were precariously close to falling nine stories and hitting a suited desk worker below.
    She didn’t notice me try to climb from my balcony to my friend’s balcony.
    Yeah, the 2nd-to-last picture reminded me of this…
