A Modern Day Fairy Tale: Scavenger Hunt Sunday!!!

Scavenger Hunt Sunday!!!

This has been an extremely long week, so I'm really surprised I was actually able to get all these! Between my son being home from school most of the week for tummy troubles and his sleep being even worse than normal (which is never good)- well, let's just say I'm ready for this new week to begin. But in the end, I think I was able to come up with some fun shots, so I hope you enjoy! Posting this a bit early, I will link up when the linky is posted:)



Capture the Sky

Nothing too original or spectacular, but I like it! Those dark clouds were making me nervous, I do not like rain, but there was no rain on the day this photo was taken...whew!

Everyday


This is me thinking outside the box...or maybe this is me taking the topic very literally. Hmmm, either way, I *hope* this was an original thought! (And I love the colors of this magazine!)

FurryWhen I read this topic, since we don't have a pet I was thinking I might have to pull out an old zoo picture or something. Then I remembered my son had one of those little touch and feel animal books with a lion, so I thought I'd play around with that...and well, let's just say those results aren't pretty! But then I realized the koala page actually said furry so...here we go!

Life

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16
This one was tough for me! Originally, I really wanted to do something fun with The Game of Life...the only trouble was...we don't actually have the game! There went that idea! So I searched my brain (and house) for creative ideas. It was only a few hours ago that I thought of this! I'm satisfied with how it turned out, though it did have me wishing for a different lens! This was shot with my 50, and it was TOUGH!! I ended up having to crop it a lot to get this how I wanted.

Blurred

I think this might be my favorite of the week, I love the colors! And I love bokeh, why did I not try this before!?

  22. Photographically, your blurred shot is my favorite. Cleverly, your furry shot is my super favorite. We aren't really pet people either and I had to laugh at how you handled it! Heh.

    We aren't sleeping well around here either. I feel your pain and hope it gets better for you soon!
