The Great Pumpkin

    Newer Older

    I'm posting this in honor of my father whose favorite holiday was halloween. Every year until I was 18 we carved pumpkins together. They were all night projects carving crazy detailed pumpkins of things like skeletons and wolves.

    This photo was taken in college for my senior project of mixed lighting. It was taken with a Pentex K1000 inherited from my father. I'm posting as a thank you to my dad who gave me both an appreciation for the carved pumpkin and a love for photography.
