I ♥ Faces - Week 42 - “Halloween Dress-Up”

"All dressed up with nowhere to go!"

We don't celebrate Halloween in our family at all -we discuss it, and then let it pass. So instead I have entered a photo I took back in July of my daughter (on the right of the photo with wand in the air) at her ballet open day (the rules say; "If you do not celebrate Halloween, feel free to enter a photo of anyone who is in dress-up for another occasion...").

I was annoyed I chopped of their feet, but I loved the 'bored urban fairies' feel of the photo - leaned against the brick wall with painted goal post and flaky paintwork :D

The only editing this has had is noise reduction, and fiddling with the colour level and contrast in Windows Gallery fix - no Photoshop or Picnik!

I won't be visiting to many blogs this week as I don't support the whole 'Halloween is fun' ethos, but if you're OK with that, then everyone else's entries can be found over at I ♥ Faces :D

Love the pic. I grew up not celebrating Halloween either. My mom never thought it was something that should be celebrated.
