The New York Times published a great slideshow of images from the NY subway last night. I was on the Montreal métro heading to and from choir, and saw quite a lot I would have liked to photograph too, but even on Halloween night, French privacy laws make it difficult to take pictures of people in public. Nevertheless, I stole a few shots. My own neighborhood was full of little ghouls and goblins, but what amused me the most were the adults hosting the trick-or-treaters; on one porch a tall fairy in blue wings arranged her pumpkin lanterns and bowls of treats, and then settled into an armchair to wait for her visitors; across the street a pink-wigged witch and a shark stood in their doorway, handing out candy. And outside the Mont Royal metro, a large pod of forty or fifty zombies danced in slow motion to music the living couldn't hear.
Like our clothes at other times, Montreal Halloween dress-up tends to have a fairly dark flavor, though I did see a man in a bright orange tuxedo and top hat through the window of a blue train, and rued the fact that my camera wasn't in my hand!
