Halloween 2015

Truth in advertising: this photo is not actually a Halloween celebration but it captures that spirit. This photo was taken during the Amboise Carnival celebration in March.  For this festival, the kids (and often adults) parade through the streets in costume lead by bands of musicians and dancers. For better or worse, large amounts of sweets are not collected and consumed by the kids.  While Toussaint is a solemn religious event here, Halloween as Americans know it is not widely celebrated.  Wherever you are, have a fun and safe celebration tonight.


  1. I just love all those somber expressions--except for the little girl who is looking up with a little smile! That's what good photos are made of, Stuart!


  2. You can't go wrong with an image like this Stuart, so cute..and all the better for the 'no sweets' involved :)

  3. Definitely has a Halloween feel to it. Very cute!
