It was a challenge to capture my nephew in the bath in a somwhat dark bathroom…..but I love his little hands in this one.

Circles…

Telephone….

And this one looks more like someones coffee table….with the cigarettes and drink someone must have had a long call from this phonebooth.

Monochromatic….

Much harder then you think to find a green statue and green trees together….this was a real treat to find!!!

Scarf….

Scavenger Hunt Sunday…September 18th 2011

Here is my second attempt at Scavenger Hunt Sunday…hopefully I won’t fall into a sophomore slump with this one.  Thank you all of your comments – it really was a lot of fun seeing your supportive and helpful comments.

1.  STREET PHOTOGRAPHY

Here is the view from our apartment…I am still leaning how to properly catch the lights of the cars as they zoom down the avenue.  Any tips would be welcomed.

2.  FROM A DISTANCE

In my book…the Empire State building is always beautiful from any distance.
Photography love...

3.  SUNDAY

Sunday in our neighborhood means football…. J-E-T-S..Jets, Jets Jets…

4.  FROM BEHIND

This is the back of the statute from last week’s scavenger hunt….love the birds resting on this gentleman.

5.  LIQUID

WWe stumbled upon these little birds yesterday enjoying a little bath in this small puddle in the park.

See you all at next weeks Scavenger Hunt…


My First Scavenger Hunt Sunday …

Well here is my first attempt at Scavenger Hunt Sunday…I have to say I have been a long time scavenger hunt viewer but first time poster…and a little nervous at that….here we go….

1.  BOKEH…

This is an old street light in the park…

2.  PROCESS OF ELIMINATION

Fun with the shadows from sunset this weekend…

3.  REMEMBER

This is a photo of a note that I left for my husband on 9/11.  We live in NYC and my husband was working downtown at the time.   When the planes struck the World Trade Center my husband was in Central Park…as you can tell from this note (which was written by me shortly after the first plane crashed and then edited when the second plane crashed – see the change of the 1 to a 2) the gravity of the event had not yet sunk in…my worry for my husband at that time was simply traffic. ..if that had really been our only worry…

Photography love...

4.  STATUES

I think this statute needs a little touching up…if I was better at photoshop perhaps I would try and fix it 🙂

5.  Flying Higher

While he doesn’t have too much air under his feet I love this photo of my nephew jumping while playing basketball with my dad…

And now my nephew is flying high…

Well that was fun….
