Scavenger Hunt Sunday 5.13.12

Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's and grandma's and godmother's reading this. And a special wish for our SHS host, Ashley, because she'll be a mama in just a few weeks!

Okay, onto the Hunt.

My online workshop with Lisa is inspiring me more than I ever could have anticipated. This is a photo I took for one of our assignments last week (low light photography).


Scavenger Hunt Sunday 5.7.12

Oops, a day late! And I didn't even finish hunting down all the items. I was such a slacker last week. I will have to make sure that I work harder this week!

1. Yellow

2. Something that makes me smile
So many things:
teeny purple flowers. sunlight.
all the things that I am learning in my photography workshop.
the fact that I am getting closer and closer to getting my photos right in-camera.

3. Ancient/antique
The ruins of the incline railway.

4. Splash

It just wouldn't be a proper Scavenger Hunt without one photo of Katniss.

2. Life

3. Fragrant

Is it obvious how much I am loving photographing flowers these days?!


Scavenger Hunt Sunday 4.1.12

1. Clouds
We had 2 days with no clouds, and then 3 days with clouds, so this was an easy prompt for me.

2. Sunflare
I'm a pro at capturing sunbursts, but I'm still figuring out the sunflare.

3. Seven
Seven M&M's.

4. High Angle
I couldn't possibly post SHS photos without including Katniss.

5. Low Angle
One of my mom's pretty windchimes.


Scavenger Hunt Sunday 3.25.12

1. Whimsy
Katniss. So sweet and whimsical.

2. Create
Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made;
and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. -Genesis 2:1,2

3. Dust
Wow, I didn't realize how dusty my dresser was. I can see little kitty pawprints!
As a result of this prompt, I dusted our entire bedroom.

4. Sprout
Mid-March is usually rainy and windy here in New York.
This year, though, it's been warm and humid. We are in for a short spring and a hot summer.

5. Drop
I made hubs stand outside and drop this squishy thingie over and over.
This is the best shot I got before he became totally bored.


Scavenger Hunt Sunday 3.18.12

1. Vintage
I didn't apply any vintage processing to this photo (rather, more of a subtle retro look). But this opera house was built in 1869, which makes it pretty darn old!

2. Word or Quote
This was on the wall at a tea shop that I went to with my parents.

3. Nature's Own
Nature's own lesson in humility.
There is no respect for others without humility in one's self.
Henri Frederic Amiel

4. People
Does one person count?
My best friend and her boyfriend came over this week for a lesson in aperture.

5. Photog's Choice
The water droplets on the lid of my steamer made for a cool photo op!
