Saturday Snapshot: Jack-o-Lanterns

Saturday Snapshot is a meme hosted by Alyce at At Home with Books. All you have to do is "post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken and then leave a direct link to your post in the Mr. Linky on [her] blog. Photos can be old or new, and be of anything as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give is up to you." All she asks is that you don't just post random photos that you find online. (Click pictures for close-up).
 

Here are lots of Jack-o-Lanterns from when my son was young:

Those are some excellent jack-o-lanterns for sure.
I remember when I lived in Nanaimo, B.C. -- on Vancouver Island. And every year, after Halloween, people bring their candle-lit Jack-o-lantern creations and place them along a stretch out-of-town bleakness called Jinglepot Road. It's so eerie.
These ones, all of them, would do well there!

They are lovely photos, and you must have so much patience to carve out those pumpkins. My Snapshot is a lighthouse without a light! http://goo.gl/LAoN2

What a wonderful way to record the passage of time. And you can clearly carve a pretty cool pumpkin too.

Wow, I am impressed by the carvings! And he looks very pleased with them, too.

Thanks for sharing your march down memory lane during this Halloween season!

Wow, those lanterns are really great. Love the cat, or is it a tiger?
