Every Halloween millions of pumpkins are ruthlessly slaughtered for our sick, twisted amusement. For years I wanted to capture the plight of the pumpkin and bring attention to brutal death of our favorite gourd.
Really, I wanted to try my hand at perspective photography and try to bring emotion into pictures with lighting and colors. I thought it would be neat to take pictures of all the smashed pumpkins immediately following the Halloween festivities. It has been bouncing around in my brain for a while and now I am finally acting on it (as I am on lots of things which feels pretty awesome). Here is a preview of kind of what it will look like when it is finished. These are two photos I took outside my friends Tim and Mary’s house. Those with a weak heart look away.
