Cinderella's Panic Lever

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 5 October 2015 in Plant & Nature.

Cinderella rode to and from the Ball in a pumpkin with t's cool orange color and smooth lines....then there was the stem that feels like sandpaper wrapped over wood....it seems strange.

I really like the variation in textures between the stem of the pumpkin versus the skin of the pumpkin. Their diversity reminds me of why I like the autumn Happy Autumn

There's even a bit of summer clinging to the pumpkin. Beautiful shot, Denny.
