    I'm not sure if the pink shirt comes through since the light's not that great but it's this one:

    I think I love this combo, but I wish there was a better picture so I could really tell :/

    I think, as so often is the case, that @upr_crust is going to be hard to beat. One other observation, unknown to me at the moment I thought this challenge was a good idea, is that it is quite difficult to get a good photograph of a pale pink shirt. So, here my entry for the challenge, cross-posted from WAYWRN:

    You are a shameless flatterer, Andy, but as it is, it would be an inconvenience for me to win this week's FC, as I will be traveling to London, starting next Thursday evening, and dependent on hotel wi-fi and a tablet - not an ideal arrangement for the administration of an FC. While there I will have the pleasure of meeting up with one or two of the natives, before making a kamikaze day trip to Paris (2016/02/10) and a more leisurely sojourn to Lisbon on the 13th.

    Lisbon is one of the those places I'd love to visit, but probably never will.

    I have no idea what you're talking about.

    Day trips to Paris are well within the bounds of what is reasonable. Catching the first Eurostar out of St Pancras will get you to Paris in time for breakfast, if you're so inclined. Although I'll admit I prefer to spend the night in Paris myself, rather than catch the train back to London after an early dinner. Sounds like a most agreeable trip.

    I've done this trip three or four times already, and the first Eurostar to Paris leaves at O-dark-hundred hours (mine will leave around 8:30 AM). I should be in Paris for about six hours or so - a couple of museums (the Fondation Louis Vuitton in the Bois de Bologne and the Musee du Quai Branly), and maybe some shopping apres. Back in London by 8:00 PM local time.

    Sorry, that was a quick shot while walking at Albany's Convention Center. This was last week at my Sis-In-Laws NY State Bar swearing in.

    Here's another shot(s)...excuse my wife's hair clip on my lapel.

    Yes, that first train is eye-wateringly early. Especially so if I attempt to catch it soon after arriving from the West Coast. I am fortunate, though, in that I can catch it from Ebbsfleet International, a quick ten-minute drive from my sister's house. I hope, at least, you have a splendid lunch in Paris.

    Don't forget a bullet proof jacket. Not sure they exist in pink though. [​IMG]
