Not Your Typical Pumpkin Patch

Not Your Typical Pumpkin Patch © 2010 Bo Mackison

Something simple for Halloween Day. A rather atypical pumpkin patch.

This may be the most innately creative pumpkin I’ve seen this Halloween season.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.


  1. Now that’s sure something I wouldn’t have though of! What a cool display though!

  2. Nice! The composition, colors, patterns, textures, colors all work together to create a lovely image.

  3. That is just the coolest photo. I can see it on a greeting card. It’s just perfect!

  4. Definitely not typical. That is so neat!

      I had to turn the car around when I saw this pumpkin in its “perch” and park a few hundred feet away, and then walk along a too-busy country road to get to a place where I could photograph it. I just thought it was so unusual, I had to get the photo. It’s not something I will ever see again… 🙂

    When I saw the title I thought ‘Oh God, not another pumpkin photo’. But this is absolutely brilliant and by far the best pumpkin I’ve seen so far.

      I thought it was one of the more uniquely growing pumpkins I’ve ever seen, too. Thanks for visiting and especially for commenting.

  6. I think it’s one of the coolest pumpkins I’ve ever seen. Very original. Great eye, Bo!

  7. Well it certainly is positioned for easy pickings. 🙂

  8. Wonderful and poetic. What strength in the linkage! Your photography is beautiful! Found you over at GHT. ;>)
