Where can I find some good halloween background images for a photo booth?

I volunteered to set up a photo booth at work for our halloween party. We have a lot of adults that dress up for a contest and a ton of kids come through for trick or treating. I have a nice green-screen backdrop and the software set up to do background replacement.

But I was hoping for some help finding some cool halloween-themed high resolution pictures that would be suitable for replacing the green screen background with. I'm trolling through flickr and stuff but hoped someone might have a better idea of where to look.

I'd probably be looking for stuff that was B&W so that the person in front of it would be in decent contrast [if this is a color photo booth] otherwise you'll be in danger of busy costume + busy background = total mess. I often look to places like Wikimedia Commons or the Library of COngress American Memory project and type in some random words like "autumn" or "halloween" or even something like "pumpkins"

I'm hoping to find a few and then people can pick the one they like (after the fact). Good point with B&W though.

If you (or someone you know) have Illustrator or another vector-editing program, Vecteezy has some free Halloween-themed vector images.

You may find something suitable at DoverPictura.com. It's a new website from Dover Publications that sells high resolution, royalty-free images by the collection or individual image sheet.
