We carved a Jack-o-lantern a couple of days back for halloween. It was a pretty simple one but it turned out pretty good at least for a n00b carver like me.It was a fun event with the kiddos all sitting around me while I was busy sucking out the guts of the pumpkin. It did not take very long though. I might go out there after halloween and get a slickdeal on a clearance pumpkin and carve another one. May be, may be not....depends on how enthusiastic I feel on Sunday.
Search the net for pumpkin carvings and you will find a whole slew of really cool and very intricate carvings....from the very creative to the laugh-out-loud funny. There isn't a lack of creativity in this world. There is creativity in everything. A good photographer can probably take a picture of a door knob and make it look like heaven. I remember one pic of a port-a-potty on kenrockwell.com or some other site. It was just a toilet, a cheap one for that matter. However, the way the foreground colors gelled with the background, the composition and the overall scale of the photo made it look like something you wanna own!
Here's what I'd like to do. I'd like to post more often. I'd like to do more than post and run with pics. I'd like to put a context around the pics I post and probably post a bit about abstract me. If it's just posting pics, I don't need a blog, Flickr or Picasa. can do a much better job of hosting my pics for me. Like many other like to dos, this may remain a like to do or it may actually turn into am doing.
