Pumpkins and surprises

An enthusiastic hairdresser's salon on my way to work has decorated its window with a string of plastic pumpkin lights in the run up to Halloween. I think Chinese lanterns look a bit like pumpkins, albeit somewhat more aesthetically pleasing (to my unjaded western eye). There was something eerie about them in my photographs, too:

Against a startlingly pink sky, on Cheung Chau, on Christmas day...

...and another string at the Yuen Yuen institute. Is that a street in Paris at the end of the corridor? It looks like a deleted scene from Inception - a dreamlike juxtaposition of two worlds...
