I love pumpkins. I love the shape when you find a perfect pumpkin. I love the rich color and how it immediately evokes autumn. I love how they are both food and creative decoration. I love pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving. I even love the sound and feel of saying the word pumpkin.
So when I read on the Wedgwood in Seattle History blog that the Boy Scouts were operating a pumpkin stand I knew I wanted to make a point of going with my camera. (I don’t live in the Wedgwood neighborhood, but it’s close enough to be a quick jaunt down the road.)
Unfortunately, this was our rainiest October on record so I didn’t get there until the last weekend the stand was open. I missed the best displays. But on the day I was there the sun was shining through some high hazy clouds and there were still pumpkins aplenty to entice my lens.
