Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

Every year, on the night after Hallowe’en, our neighbourhood does something called a Pumpkin Parade.

Locals bring their carved pumpkins to a nearby park, where we light them and admire everyone’s amazing work.

This was arguably the best pumpkin from last year’s walk — the image isn’t great because it was taken using an iPhone in low light (obviously) but you should still be able to recognize the subject.

More at The Daily Post weekly photo challenge.

Update: Because I feel honour-bound to note that you can actually do some pretty decent photography with the ol’ iPhone, here’s another, classic silhouette from Spain:

  1. Great idea…

  2. Why is Steve Jobs sporting a monocle? Looks like his evil twin.

    • See, that’s the crappy pic. You could see the (faintly carved) outline in real life, but it was too subtle for the limited camera to pick up. Somewhat ironic that my iPhone rendered its creator as Blofeld/Dr. Evil, no?

  3. very original silhouette!

    • There was also another silhouette of Jack Layton, at that time the recently deceased Leader of the Opposition in our federal government and a tremendously popular politician in the city — but he doesn’t have the same “Hey! I know that guy!” impact for international readers. : -)

  4. Menacing bull….Thumbs up for the second photo!

  5. i-Mimpressed! haha sounded better in my mind….still trying to decide what to carve on my pumpkin this year. A manatee is high on the list…

    • A manatee would be cool! No idea what we’ll do here. It won’t be anywhere near as good as the Steve Jobs carving, that’s for sure.

  6. Beautiful shot… How did you capture that one? :-)

    • Heh. The pumpkin I accomplished by crouching (which was harder than it sounds because people LOVED that one and there was quite a crowd around it); the bull I accomplished by putting down my coffee and leaning on the dashboard (P was driving). :-)

  7. That is great!

  8. Took me some seconds…but oh, yes!
