Weekly Photo Challenge: Object

6 Comments

I love these photography challenges at WordPress.  It’s a wonderful journey to revisit our archives at Flickr to meet these challenges.  (Our?  Sure!  It’s a family account, and Cimmorene, myself, and our daughter Princess are the principal photographers.)

This week, in a post created specifically for this challenge, share a photo of one object.

This photo was suggested by my lovely wife Cimmorene, who also took the capture:

Tomato Jack o' lantern

Tomato Jack o’ lantern

This was in response to Noah Scalin’s 365: A Daily Creativity Journal: Make Something Every Day and Change Your Life! almost three years ago on February 26, 2011.

Description from Flickr:

The challenge with this one was to create something using the first fruit or vegetable encountered in the kitchen. Cimmy created this by hollowing out a tomato and carving a face in it the same way someone might carve a pumpkin. Side note: the original Jack o’ Lanterns were made from turnips.

For more of the photoset we did for the 365 challenge, see 365 Daily Creativity at Flickr.  If you like these photo challenges and would like to participate, here’s a quick link to the WP Daily Post and the photo challenges category: http://dailypost.wordpress.com/category/photo-challenges/

Wherever you see "jaklumen", that's me. The username is still unique as of 2016, so it's just me, and only me. It's the real me, because I'm bad at faking otherwise.

  1. This is a cute idea to get kidlets to eat tomatos. Do you know, my pumpkin is still going strong on my front porch from last Halloween?

  2. What? Your kidlets don’t eat tomatoes?

    • Hahaha, no, I should have clarified. They eat tomatoes just fine whether there’s a face carved in it our not.

      I was referring to your mention of the pumpkin. We have a white pumpkin on our porch that has crumbled away from the outer part of the shell.

  3. Oh ok…yes our pumpkin is still going strong. I haven’t ever see a white pumpkin. Isn’t that more of a gourd?

    • Nope. It’s just another cultivar, probably related to the same varieties that are orange, so it’s still a squash. You can find seeds for them that are usually labeled “ghost pumpkin”.

      I have seen them in patches growing right beside orange ones. Of course, there are many other varieties of pumpkins, too, that can also be eaten. They tend to feature more prominently in Hispanic supermarkets, I think.
