Not your usual orange pumpkin by Celeste Mookherjee
Clear

When it comes to pumpkins, orange is the expected color, some would even say the required color for autumn celebrations. As much as I love the color orange, every year I find myself admiring the display of what they call “fantasy pumpkins” at Trader Joe’s markets. This striped beauty was part of the 2013 display, and isn’t it just loaded with character? (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/8, 1/160 sec, ISO 200, open shade, handheld)

Dedicated to those who occasionally like to rebel against traditions, just because. :)

    Wonderful tones and textures. Great capture and light. Is it large?

  • I’m so happy you like this one, Joy! Yes, it is fairly large: an oblong-shaped pumpkin that was about 1 foot (0.3 meters) long.
