i think that says happy halloween. that's what it's supposed to say at least. unbeknownst to matt and me, we live in a pretty swingin' part of hong kong. we went out for dinner on halloween night and got wrapped up in a huge costume parade, laced with cops and everything. i don't think they do the "trick or treat" gig here, but our chinese brethren really like to dress in costumes, they love seeing children dressed in costumes, and they absolutely love taking pictures of people in dressed in costumes. i haven't seen many small children here in the city, so maybe seeing kids in central hk is just a novelty in itself and warrants a photo opportunity.
people in costume on the left, gawkers on the right
there's the thick of the parade... most of those cats are in costume; i love it
couple of things happening in this photo... in the top half of the picture you can see some street decorations, in the center you see the hk police keepin' the peace, in the bottom left hand corner you find small children held hostage by a barrage of photographers (who are not pictured), and in the bottom right hand corner you see a hungry photographer locking in on the targeted children
everyone wanted a piece of the action... if you're in a costume, be prepared to be smothered by camera-armed chinamen
our little pumpkin
and thanks to the magic of computer technology, our halloween decorations. this is one of our favorite holidays, so matt and i just wanted to set the precedent early on in eggroll's life that on halloween, a burton dresses up.
