And I Am Ready To Take Some Photos…

Scavenger Hunt Sunday…November 20th…

First a big thank you to Kat at KatEyeStudio for calling out my Opposing Lines photo for a compliment on her blog this week….I have been floating on photography air all week since the post…THANK YOU!!!

Now without further ado on to the hunt…great set of prompts this week…can’t wait to see what everyone found……


The Christmas windows are up and they are spectacular…this here is just a small corner of what is an amazingly intricate window done primarily in white.Β  To put it in context here is the whole window…

Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge


One huge challenge I find when taking photos of windows is the reflection off the window…but luckily “reflection” is a prompt this week…


Was a beautiful day in the park today…with the last of the leaves still hanging on the trees…


Love this writing on the wall as it means “movie production time” out side our apartment tomorrow…always so much fun to see the film crews in action…and an occasional celebrity or two…

PS – Note I was even able to get a little “bokeh” going in the background on this one…and maybe someday I will even be able to master “custom bokeh”…yes last week’s prompts are still on my mind….


Around our house on the weekends means cooking…inside that lovely red pot are homemade carnitas…yum…and I am sure come Thursday we will have some stuffing going in that same pot….

Can’t wait to see everyone’s photos…and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

  24. Your reflection shot is INCREDIBLE! WOW!

    To answer your question- there wasn’t any water on the salt flats- it’s all dried salt over a dried lake bed. It’s all hard & crunchy out there- which is how it is just about everywhere around here. Water is hard to find πŸ™‚

    November 20, 2011 at 10:45 pm

    • Duh on the salt flats…I should have realized that…one of those days I guess πŸ˜‰ Have a nice Thanksgiving.
