Immanuel Church Pumpkin Patch

Hi Everyone!

I went to a Pumpkin Patch today after work! It was really nice and was able to take some great photos!

The Pumpkin Patch is on the grounds of the Immanuel Church-on-the-Hill which is on Seminary Road at Quaker Lane, Alexandria, VA. This church is an Episcopal church committed to sharing Christ’s love through worship, welcoming, and outreach.

The pumpkins come from New Mexico by the trailer truckload. Parishioners, young and old, unload the trucks I a “bucket brigade.” The pumpkins are grown by the Navajo Indians who price the pumpkins by size for the church volunteers to sell.

Also for sale are parishioner provided breads, harvest soups, cupcakes, apple crisps, cider and other foods. Volunteers spend the thousands of hours every year to make the Patch a success.

Immanuel sell pumpkins every October, and this is their major fund-raiser for local Outreach Ministries, such as Network Preschool, Carpenter’s Shelter, ALIVE, Hopkins House, etc.

100% of Immanuel’s profits go to these local community causes. Your purchase also helps the Navajo Indians.
If you are in the area, you definitely have to check it out!

If you are in the area, you should check this place out. It’s very family friendly as well. They have little red wagons that you can put your kids in and drag them around the patch.

Hi Everyone!

I went to Clarendon, VA today doing some Apartment hunting a snapped this shot on the way out of the parking garage.

I loved how you could see the reflection of the church in the side of the building.

Clarendon is a beautiful area. The apartments are seriously over priced but I would love to live there.

Enjoy!

Today, I started working in a new building because my company decided to move to another location.

This photo was taken the last day in the building that I have worked in since 2007. I was only able to enjoy having a window for about 3 months and now I have an office with no window. I loved that view and am sad I will not be able take really nice photos anymore…unless you want to see the various angles of my wall. 😉

Enjoy!

I took this photo last night on the way to see the “Avengers” movie. By the way, that Film was pretty awesome. If you like super hero movies, you have to see it! No spoilers but wait after the credits. There is a scene in the middle of the credits and a scene after the credits. They are both totally worth seeing.

I inverted the image and then used an Instagram filter to brighten the colors.

Hope you like it! Have a great day!
