Real Pumpkin Faces

originally uploaded by Elido Turco - Gigi.
Getting a great picture doesn't just come from the "perfect" camera, It can also come from the perfect subject that just happens to be in the most common of places. I am of course a texture junkie so these pumpkin  faces are some of  my favorites which were captured by Elido Turco an Italian Photographer these are from his  Flickr Photostream.
