Halloween 2017

Have a Frightening Time!

The above graphic was prepared for a selection of images from 
the Portlaw Halloween parade
organised by Portlaw Task Force
for Sunday October 29th,
but I was unable attend same due to circumstances beyond my control.

Then on the 'real' Halloween, Tuesday 31st,
I was late heading out and ended up with a limited number of images.
The above witch, seen in a local hallway, was one of the lucky shots.

Brown Street, usually with plenty of 'Trick or Treat' people,
was almost deserted, but I managed this one picture
before my camera developed some problem.
This group said they came a long distance,
but were well received at all houses they visited.

I was just about to give up meetng any more participants,
after travelling around various streets,
when I came across this delightful group in Bridge Street.
Fortunately, my camera was back in working order.
Asking for a name, they said they were
'The Portlaw Spice Girls'!!!

Luckily I had come across one more witch the previous day
in someone's front garden.

  1. Sorry to hear about your camera being faulty, I know how annoying that can be. Great pictures though, definitely capture the essence of halloween very well. Keep up the good work, hope to see more soon.
