Photographer’s Notes
When I saw the challenge, I thought this is stupid. We’ll see fifty jack-o-lanterns; twenty bananas with olive eyes, bloodshot with pimento; and how creative is that?

I talked my wife into going to the grocery store to find a more interesting vegetable that may already have a face – and voila, a celery root. Who’d a thought? In case you’re wondering, she’s the creative one!

This actually reminds me of the alien in Predator, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, but not playing the part of the alien.

And it actually reminds me of our venerable Bear_Music.
