A stranger taking one photo is odd, but for me to stand there and take a dozen might border on the bizarre, and might engender a paranoid parental response in this age of seemingly rampant creeps preying on children.

Perhaps a case of the pumpkins being more orange on the other side of the... never mind. Just a brief moment of life, nothing more here.
