Chaotic Pumpkins

There is no chaos in the world, except the chaos which your mind creates.
~~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj ~~

About the photo:  Sometimes I like to have fun with my camera and night lighting.  I remember the exact night I took this photograph.  Funny story . . . I went to a Halloween Event where the entire block was decorated for Halloween, some more elaborate than others.  One house in particular had about 200 beautifully carved pumpkins, every size, shape and design.  We are talking magnificent artistry here.

After taking a lot of photographs, I decided to have some fun with my camera.  So I started shaking my hands back and forth for some more creative shots.  I did this about half a dozen times when I felt someone looking at me.

There’s this nice gentlemen standing next to me, feeling sorry for me as I am trying to hold my camera steady, wasn’t aware that I was doing this on purpose.

It all happened so quickly.  He sympathetically asked, “Can I help you with that?”  I politely said, “Oh! No thank you”!  And I walked away only to replay the scene in my head.  That’s when I started to laugh uncontrollably.


One response to “Chaotic Pumpkins

  1. Love the effect and creativity. And I agree with you. Our mind does cause the chaos around us. Multiply that into millions and people will be in panic just like what we see in the news. If only the mind would focus on what is calm, good and beautiful….the world will be awesome, right?
