Sometimes you get lucky.
What I mean by that is that sometimes you are handed assignments that are fun, new and incredibly visual. I was asked to pop over to Sorauren park after 6 pm on Nov.1. The assignment request mentioned that residents of the neighbourhood brought their jack-o-lanterns and left them at the park. I wasn't sure what to expect. I thought i was either going to get a mountain of pumpkins or none at all. I pulled onto Sorauren and it was jammed packed full of cars and people carrying pumpkins. I started to get really pumped up thinking of how cool this could be. After circling for a while I finally found a space and grabbed my gear. I decided not to bring a flash and just work with the ambient light. When I actually got to the park I was blown away. Jack-o-lanters lining paths all lit with candles. It was awesome. All sorts of people walking along looking and taking photos. I spent a good hour walking, taking photos and talking to some of the people from the area. This is why I love what I do. Finding little gems around the city that otherwise would remain a mystery to me.
