I know it may sound corny but I'm really pumped to see how many examples of autumn veg you've squashed in here.

Did someone say pie??!

Lautreje said...

je vois des tissus, des textures, des colliers de perles, des grappes d'abondance ! C'est magnifique !

Pastelle said...

C'est un vrai festival que tu nous offres ! Le grand rassemblement de l'automne...

Steve said...

There is something very Van Gogh-like about those squash...

Alistair said...

Aye - some yummy photos there Owen.

Nice work.

Oh golly, those long curved stripey gourds - the green and the orange together - they do something to my knees!
Do tell - did you photograph them all at one harvest festival or are they collected views over many Autumns?

Siddhartha Joshi said...

The pics are delightful! Where did you click these?

Purpletreebird said...

Amazing photos! I didn't know there were so many different types! I love the swirly shapes ones.
Jess :)

Mary Ann said...

So much! It's overwhelming.

Stickup Artist said...

Gourdeous! Amazing and fantastical variety of shapes, patterns and colors. I love the ones with all the crazy bumps the best.

linda said...

What glorious color and shape!

Plum' said...

Colorées, ventrues, rayées, c'est Noël avant l'heure ! Et que dire de ces épis de maïs incroyables et multicolores...C'est certain, le orange est LA tendance de cette fin d'année ! :)

Bienvenue chez French Girl in Seattle... said...

Dear Owen-- I do not care much for pumpkin pie (it reminds me too much of baby food ;-) Sacrilege, right?! ;-) I still loved all your gorgeous photos and focused on the colors and textures. Since orange happens to be a favorite color of mine, your post made my day! -- From Vancouver, BC-- Veronique

Fabulous fall shots! I'll want to go back and look at these in a month or two.

Le Journal de Chrys said...

J'aime, j'aime, j'aime!!!!
Et particulièrement les 5 et 6ème... Au-delà de l'objet, des formes, des textures, des lignes, des couleurs!

Owen said...

Lynne, are you out of your gourde ? Do you want to count them all, so you'll know how many squash it takes to fill the Albert Hall ? Yeah, Pie !!! That's right, we are desperately seeking a pumpkin pie, it is unknown here in France...

Dee Newman said...

Owen, I haven't left a message in awhile, but not because I haven't enjoyed viewing your posts. I have been extremely busy.

Your photos and writings always inspire me and often take me to another place and time for which I am extremely grateful. Though I do not tell you often enough, I always look forward to your next offering.

louciao said...

Pas de tarte à la citrouille? Well, let them eat cake.

Owen said...

Ah, good people, your comments are simply smashing, smashing pumpkins of course. Hoping to get back in here Sunday to respond... for Saturday it's back to work... Have a few pumpkin pies to make !

Robert said...

De quoi faire beaucoup de soupe pendant l'hiver.

Catherine said...

what a fantastic sequence of autumnal abundance - we are still in the height of Autumn down here....

Owen said...

OMG, way late at work Saturday, Sunday has gone by in a fog... for those who wondered, these were all taken at the same place in Pennsylvania, on a country road about halfway between Reading and Philadelphia, on the afternoon of a day to remember, visiting two abandoned factories in the morning, just a little over a year ago... early October 2010.

Wonderful to see all your jack-o-lanterns shining !

As for pumpkin pie resembling baby food... ah, ah, I'm nearly choking at the blasphemy of it... ;-)

Nathalie said...

Très en verve, louciao !
Quelle variété et quelle belle présentation ! La courge à toute vapeur sous toutes ses formes !

Nathalie said...

Owen, I forgot to ask: are they all edible or are some only used for decoration ? And if so, which?
