Facebook has a neat way of suggesting events for me to go to, particularly one’s that my classmates are also interested in.  Two weeks ago, Boston held their “Floating Pumpkins” event.  I expected marvelous pumpkins with intricate designs floating en mass across a large lake.  What it actually was a community event where friends and family can come and carve personal pumpkins and send it across a small pond.  Although it wasn’t what I expected, it was still an enjoyable experience.

The event was also an excuse for me to get out with my camera again for the first time in a while.  Despite all of the crowds and golden hour, I struggled to find a great shot that I’m in love with.  But I was able to capture two interesting sights.  One is a snapshot of the many pumpkins that roamed the pond.  And the other just may be the pure definition of happiness and wonder.


I think these two really capture the essence of Halloween for me: glowing pumpkins and family time (not pictured here is the candy obviously.) And as I write this, I just realized that these will come out on Halloween itself.  So if you’re reading this on that spooky holiday, I wish you the Happiest of Halloweens, especially for my international readers!

Trick or Treat yo’self!
