Waterfire Providence

After viewing the pumpkins at the zoo, we headed over the see the Waterfire.  The evening was about over as vendors were packing their wares, but the fires remained lit.  As is was October and breast cancer awareness month, the capitol had pink lights.  A gallery of my photos is here.

Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular

Your eyes are like limpid pools …

A week ago on Saturday was spent visiting with cousins Chris and Joe and their families in Massachusetts.  Bridget was also there.  After dinner we went to Rhode Island to the “Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular 2013: Pumpkinville USA” at the Roger Williams Park Zoo.  There was a long line just to get tickets, but someone managed to find a shorter line so the wait was quite a bit less.  There was another wait, after we got tickets, to get in to view the pumpkins.  It was quite worth it, though.  I managed to capture some images and put them in a gallery.  Night photos are a challenge and I hope you enjoy mine.  View the gallery here.

There were pumpkins carved like jack-o-lanterns, but there were also works of art.  It was amazing to see pumpkins carved with spiders, Pee-wee Herman, a wolf, a minion, and a host of others.  I’m not sure how the artists were able to create them, but they were incredible to see.
