Pumpkin patch post


I have loved going to the pumpkin patch for a long, long time, but when my nephew came along ... it became a must to do the pumpkin patch with him. somewhere amidst my photo files I've got shots of him at 1 and 2 years old, hugging pumpkins almost twice his size.

this year we had a few objectives. Not only were we looking for our pumpkins and taking photos, but also doing some "shooting" of our little scary movie we are doing together. the scary movie was his idea, by the way, and soon we will be off to the cemetery for some more moody atmospheric shots.

anyway ... the photos pretty much speak for themselves. enjoy the pumpkin patch and excuse all the lower case letters. something's up with the right shift key.

...find out where joy resides, 
and give it a voice far beyond singing.
for to miss the joy is to miss all.

found one!


much easier!







bye for now!
hope you enjoyed the Boccali's pumpkin patch in ojai!

joy is what happens when we allow ourselves to recognize
how good things really are.

blessings and light!

Utterly stunning photos my dear! Can't wait to see the film when it comes out! I've been dying to go to the pumpkin patch but we've had so much rain it's hard to get out there with the deluge and all.
hope you're well.
