My pumpkin skull friend, your interior is but a cerebral cortex cored out till only a stem remains. Into your hollow ventricles, I shall pour noir heartbreak, torments and misery of the Damned. 'Till you become fulfilled with the anguish of Generations.

My apologies for turning the Gothic control knobs beyond Eleven.

Wow...I've never seen a black pumpkin before. I know of white pumpkins; I have a grey-green-ish-white one and a decorative knobby one (like the knobby gourds) this year, but I've never seen black. That's kinda cool. :D

It's a regular orange pumpkin. The photographic process I used ( Wet Plate Collodion) does not 'see' colors the way film or digital do today. Orange through reds come out black or very dark gray. Blues will show up as pure white.

ohhhh ok. Still, an actual black pumpkin would be cool. :)
