Pumpkin Picture: 2011 Edition

Hard to believe it's the fourth year running for the annual posting o' the pumpkin picture.  

For those of you unfamiliar with this grand tradition, the goal here is to either hold (or photoshop) the previous year's pumpkin picture in the current year's offering.  This procedure is inspired by a noble tradition started back 19 years ago by our friends Chris and Alysia.  They've put a tremendous amount of care, dedication, and art direction into creating one of the best things you can look at on the internet.

Every year since 1992, they've taken Chris's picture at a pumpkin patch — while he holds a copy of the previous year's picture.  It's a Halloween tradition like no other and highly recommended viewing…[LINK: Legend of the Pumpkin Pictures]

My own pumpkin shot was taken this year outside the Farm Store at Cal Poly Pomona.  We stumbled across a huge pumpkin patch there at the university's Kellog Ranch this weekend on the way home from Palm Springs.

That's it for this year. We'll see you the week before the election in 2012.
