Day 288 - The orange of the pumpkin

I like the lines in this photograph. And the colours. I'm happy with the way the orange of the pumpkin jumps out at you and the way the sunlight and shadow play in the frame.

Every year for as long as we can remember, we've planned to get a pumpkin, carve a pumpkin and display a pumpkin for Hallowe'en. And every year we leave it too late and all the nice pumpkins are gone by the time we go to get one. Not this year. We've purchased our pumpkin early and like so many other households in Fredericton we've put it out on our new front steps to show it off. The evening sun catches it just right and makes it almost glow against the siding of our new front atrium.

I'll take another shot once we've carved it and put the candle in. A nice after-dark photo, with the tripod probably and a long shutter. It will be nice. Hopefully as nice as this photo.
