This year Halloween kind of came and went without me even realizing. Hurricane Sandy blew in around the same time, and I was busy with work around the same time. This was also the time that my camera was (stuck) in the repair shop in NJ and I was shooting some film instead. On Friday night I got a couple of rolls of film back from the lab and look what I found: the most interesting pumpkin display in Boston.
At a distance it is a little bit difficult to see what is going on, but as you get closer it becomes very apparent.
This fountain in Concord Square in Boston’s South End was re-purposed as a pumpkin display stand. Tammy and I noticed it on our way out one night, and I headed back a day or so later to take some photos. These were taken with my Olympus OM-1 and Rollei Retro 400S film. They were processed at a lab and then I scanned them at home. I am just getting the hang of scanning negatives, so bear with me if there are some undesirables (noise, dust spots, etc…) on them. I will get better, I promise. Anyway, here are some images from Concord Square’s pumpkin display.
As you get in closer you can start to see the “faces” looking at you. And walk in even closer and…
…here are some close-ups of the different carvings. Some were very creative. Like no pumpkins I had ever seen before.
I am not sure whether this was an organized display, or whether it was just spontaneous, but it was pretty cool. Thanks Concord Square for making my Halloween memorable.
Thanks for stopping by. Come again soon. If you would like to receive an email when I post new photos and/or blog entries head on over to the subscribe page and enter your email.
