Pumpkin Carving and Light Writing

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

Drew and Marissa carved some awesome Halloween pumpkins! I documented the event.

At Erskine College we had the tradition to carve pumpkins and then put them on Little River and take pictures of them. Since we are in Greenville now, we put them on Reedy River at Falls Park! Drew did his fancy light writing also.

Here is Drew’s pumpkin with the face of Martin Luther

Ting Ting decided to jump in the pumpkin? *Notice: No cats were harmed in the making of this photo. Creative lighting methods were used and not an open flame. 🙂 He he.

Pumpkintown Festival

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

Marissa and I went up to Pumpkintown, SC, for the Pumpkintown Festival! On the way there I almost ran over a turtle! I quickly pulled to the side of the road and jumped out to see if it was alive. It was, so Marissa rescued the turtle and placed it on the side of the road. It was an Snapping Turtle. I think he is even smiling in the last shot for saving him!

We made it to the Pumpkintown Festival! It was packed out with mostly locals and some people that traveled like us.

There were bluegrass bands that performed live and the little kids danced along on the stage.

There were tents set up all over the place with neat arts and crafts! The metal workers, Kay’s Wrought Iron (706-376-9056), there, made some interesting stuff like Sponge Bob!

There was a fun competition where people would try and climb a pole to get a bag of cash at the top! There were several attempts, however this last one was a success.

We got a funnel cake and I kid you not, fried Oreos! I thought they tasted awesome. It tasted like funnel cake with chocolate in the middle.
