I like the vibrant colours and out-of-the-ordinary subjects of your shots. Good stuff.

@ christos-greece & Grey Towers:

thanks thanks! appreciate it! I'll do my best to bring you more pictures of our city's four corners and her urban life and landscape that most people don't usually see or notice. Hopefully, this would promote more appreciation of what we usually ignore or take for granted. Anyways, happy halloween! I hope you had a good scare and scream!
And I just wish that we have a halloween parade or a big and unique halloween event.

p.s.
pardon the resolution of the pics, cam's not powerful enough

You can only make do with what you have, and I think you're doing a fantastic job. The pics show a real artistic sensibility in the composition and choice of subjects and contrasts.

But we do! Every year! Hoping you made it out to Church Street last night!
ps you do an AMAZING job with your point and shoot.
I've certainly spent my fair share of days/evenings/nights at The Artful Dodger! Your pic brought
back fond memories....I'll bet it was hopping last night, as they always have a Hallowe'en Party!

@ Grey Towers: thank you! yeah, i guess you're right. better to have any camera than none at all especially if you're in the right moment haha, experienced that many times, so now i bring one wherever i go

@ Taller, Better: hey, thanks!!! i haven't experienced that party on Church St. yet, I saw your pics, it looks really fun, like a one big party, but I'm not sure if kids and grandparents could go there, they'd be crushed lol isn't it geared towards the younger crowd? i just hope there's more, like as big as Santa & Pride Parades, Caribana, Nuit Blanche etc. i remember last year, spent halloween @ NYC, we went to the parade at greenwich village with costumes lol thinking that everyone there would be wearing one. but when we got there, this family friend of ours hadnt told us that we were actually part of the parade! so i was so surprised to see so many people behind parade fences taking pictures of us and we had nothing to do but to smile and wave back at the crowd, and we were forced to walk a few kilometers uptown while people kept on asking us if they could have a pic with us. it was so embarrassing lol but we had fun
my face would probably be in many new yorkers' halloween pic files lol

Classy pics! Very urban. Maybe a bit too arty for my taste though. I donīt get the impression of what the city looks like at street level.
