Our camera died this past weekend, so yesterday I took the kids out and bought a new one without much hesitation. You see, the camera is now something that I must own. It used to not be this way, but once you have kids you don't want to miss capturing moments that go by so quickly. Last night, while in the front yard, I noticed the pumpkins my wife put out on the front porch. They created a wonderful vignette with the moon and landscape lighting throwing shadows of curved ironwork on their orange forms. The image inspired me to get the tripod out and test my new camera with a long exposure time. The photo I captured can be seen in this blog. After I took the photo the inspiration continued -- I started thinking about the pumpkin, long a symbol of the harvest and Halloween, and what the soundtrack could be. The 10 songs in this list represent the fruits of my efforts. I must say, this was a pretty challenging theme for a playlist, so please let me know what other "pumpkin songs" could be added.
