Challenge 780: Hallowafter
I didn't pass this coffee shop until last weekend, too late to post it in time for Halloween - but here it is anyway, for a belated celebration of spooks and ghouls.

Can you make it live up to its name? And, while you're at it, correct the spelling?

Important note: I'll be waking up in Paris next Friday morning, sans laptop. So, uniquely, I'd like you to treat this as a Thursday Challenge as I shall be writing it up a day early.

Note that this is the first time this has happened in 14 years. I'll try not to make a habit of it.

High res is here.

Coo, this week's banner is a bit of a blast from the past. That was my doggy, Charley, riding the train and he passed away over 10 years ago.

It's spelled the same way on the little sign too, so it would obviously seem intentional. I've been going through word games and pronunciations in my head and I can't see any reason for this except some might think it 'cute'.

By the way the horrible Katie Hopkins said:

"Re articulating my pledge to the nation. We are out on 31 Oct. If I am proved wrong I will drink a pot of tea naked in the Apprentice losers cafe with Farages face on each nipple".

What a winning Halloween combination! I am tempted to use this entry to fulfil her promise ....... but I don't think I, or probably, any of you, have the stomach for it ..........

Forgot say I shall be leaving for Vienna on Monday for a week. Staying with 95 year old mother in law whose ancient house has no internet so I shan't even be taking a laptop. So unless I find time first this will be a quiet week from me.

Now that's what I call a Friday Challenge.

Very naughty but ....

Love the mirrored Farages for left and right breasts. Very subtle.

I'll leave Steve to comment on the lighting directions .........

I have to confess mine would have been a lot less flattering.

Room for improvement here. It's a rush job. But at least I don't feel left out.

Re: Challenge 780: Hallowafter
the first one was indeed a rush job and didn’t really convince me. This is what it looks like at night - slight improvement…

Frank, that is an excellent piece of work. You must be very pleased with that.
