Today is Halloween and the morning sun is shining with the magnitude of a billion points of light. In this blaze, I wandered out on our front porch to capture the stem that protrudes creatively atop one of our plump pumpkins. Every year when it comes time to select the perfect pumpkins from our local pumpkin patch, I never fail to be drawn to the ones with the most interesting stems. The more character, the better. Sometimes it’s the stem that makes the pumpkin divine!

Natural light, no crop, no edit.

The world is full of magical photo ops…

All you need to grab them is a zest for life, an eye for the extraordinary and that trusty camera of your choice.

Raise the sturdy weight of it to your face … close one eye then … lower your finger upon the shiny black button… hold your breath then… hear that hypnotic click and suddenly, dynamite explodes! the stars collide! and maybe, just maybe you’ve captured a magnificent moment in time… How thrilling is that?!?
