The "Take It!" This photo is one of amazing depth and joy. The collection of vibrant colors, all formed in nature is something most of us have seen before, but for me, this time was
I went to this very popular stand to take photographs of pumkins to be used for the fall season banner for this web site. The same theme is used for the business cards for the season.
Little did I know what a spot of elation I would be visiting.

This collection of colors all being presented as being not only comfortable in their own skin but freshly picked as everything presented in the stand is from within a hundred miles.

More visits will be made with more photos to come from this happy treasure trove.
All my best,

next feast will be for one to prepare in their own special way these items and then have them as a part of or all of a great meal.
