Pumpkin Carving

This weekend I partook in festive activities with some friends and carved a pumpkin. Here are the end results—mine is the glum looking one on the left. Lauren made the really happy one right next to it!

Halloween Pumpkins

Since the iphone camera isn’t very good in low light, I adjusted the levels in photoshop so just the faces stand out and they look more spooky. Unfortunately, the cyclops pumpkin was too dark so he got cut… 0-(

<p> These pumpkins are cool. Is there a way to animate a picture so the faces would be jumping around or something? How would you do this? </p>

<p> If you hang out long enough on this page and stare at the 2nd picture of the pumpkins, you just might see something… bouncing pumpkins! </p>

<p> I dunno, it must be some sort of wiccan javascript magic. Thanks for the interest, Lauren ;) </p>

<p> Aw, I like the cyclops pumpkin! Too bad he didn&#39;t show up very well. Will you be carving pumpkins again this year? I hope to do so with my friends here in Italy, but they&#39;re not quite into the tradition yet! Cheers! Heather </p>
