Are you a person who sees certain colour combinations which immediately evoke holiday connections, e.g.,red and green, orange and black, yellow and purple? I am, and as a result there are colour schemes I find difficult to live with because the cultural connections override the beauty of the combination. But sometimes a combination sneaks by me.
I took this photo in the main area of a small London hotel. I loved the modern flavour and the strong vertical stripes. My immediate reaction was not Halloween, it was great impact. Later I realized they were symbolic colours.
