Outstretched hand presents a small round pumpkin.
A sprightly Fall dance before the coming chill.
Dancers caper and cavort this Allhallows Eve.
Then frozen under Winter's silent and snowy blanket.
This week's 30 Word Thursday picture is from a fall trip the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. This was one of the last times I was able to go out taking pictures before Minnesota Winter set in. A bronze statue of young girls frozen in play caught my eye. I had seen this statue several times without any great thought given to it, but this time someone had placed a small pumpkin to balance in a tiny hand. Suddenly the tableau spoke to me and I snapped a few pics. Lacking the colors I was looking for, the picture languished on my computer, but wanted to do something with it. Taking a fresh look and trying out some colored pencil effects on my Photoshop Elements program I came up with this. Please check out the other 30 Word entries at Erin's Treasures Found Blog Here. Also she has had a book of some of last year's 30 Word Thursday entries (including some by Sj and I) so you should buy one!
