And I Am Ready To Take Some Photos…

Scavenger Hunt Sunday…October 16th

Well its Sunday again…time to see all the great photos everyone took this week during the scavenger hunt.  I found this week’s prompts particularly challenging so I am excited to see how everyone interpreted them…I bet they are going to be great.


This was a tough one (actually all were this week) …. wasn’t exactly sure what was meant by abstract but I thought that the lines and colors on this one lent an abstract feel to this photo of my favorite subject.


Stumbled upon these round flowers of some sort during our walk last Sunday afternoon…they were round so I snapped this photo…but I still don’t know what they are…if anyone does please let me know.

Photography love...


Ok folks…work with me here on this one….does this count as fire..the gas flame under our favorite, can’t live without red Le Crueset pot…we have made some wonderful one-pot meals in this pot…many good memories.


4.  Seeing Faces in Strange/Unexpected Places

The unexpected place this cute little face (of half a face) appeared was on my memory card….my dear nephew got his hands on my camera and took a series of self photos…LOL….

5.    STARS

For this prompt I knew exactly what I wanted to do…and that was to walk over to the train station and take a photo of the constellations painted on the ceiling…its absolutely amazing.  And this is just a small portion of the ceiling….

But then on our walk we stumbled upon this art exhibit in the river…called “Reflecting the Stars”….the little white cells on top of each of these pieces of this abandoned pier light up in different formations at night – each formation a different constellation.

Can’t wait to go back and see this art exhibit at night in all its splendor….

Looking forward to seeing everyone else’s photos and to hearing everyone’s feedback on mine….

  5. I love that you found a face on your memory card, that is too funny! I would love to see those stars at night, but I loved seeing Grand Central, I miss New York sometimes!

  8. Really a great set, but your “faces” shot really made me giggle. Sounds like some wonderful meals have come from that red pot!!

  9. ummm. that last picture sounds very intriguing… would love to see it at night… hint! hint! perhaps you can take a night shot & post it in the future?
    the plant in your ROUND picture is called “gomphocarpus hairy balls” – no, I’m not a horticulturalist, but I took a similar picture at a nursery in Solvang (above Santa Barbara, CA)…
    not sure where you live but your pics make me want to pay a visit to your community. thanks for stopping by my blog.

  18. My favourite is your round shot. Love the colours and the hairy texture. I bet the your last star picture is a site to behold at night.

  23. Before I got my fancy “don’t you dare touch my camera” camera, I was always finding my children’s self-portraits. Now I find them on the old camera…but usually toes 🙂

    Fun set. I really love the lines in your abstract and I don’t have a clue what those flowers are, but fun find!

  24. Both of those star shots are my favourites. I’m sure that the stars by the river at night must be a great sight.

    October 17, 2011 at 6:48 am

  25. Hey! Thanks for your comment! And wow, these pictures are FANTASTIC! I love the stars on the end of the pier blocks…how fabulous of an idea is that?!?! Great faces shot too, so funny 😀

    Wonderful collection of photos! I love the river shot. Also your next post photos are absolutely depicting my idea of autumn with chrysanthemums and autumn vegetables. See ya at the next scavenger!
