Scavenger Hunt Sunday - Ramblings and Photos

August 29, 2010
Scavenger Hunt Sunday
Another Sunday…another Scavenger Hunt. As always, I’m really excited to see everyone’s interpretations of the scavenger hunt items and I’m hoping we pick up a few new bloggers today and tomorrow. If you are also participating in the August 2010 Photo Hunt, there are 3 days to finish (or start) the hunt. I’ve tried to help you out but giving you a couple of photo hunt items each week, but now it’s all up to you.
Scavenger Hunt Sunday
The rules are simple:
  1. Anyone can participate. 
  2. You’re encouraged to take five new photos this week for the challenge. 
  3. If you get stumped, you may use one photo from your archive (although I’m not too strict about it – I do my best to take fresh shots). 
  4. Link up here on Sunday (or Monday at the latest) – you can use the new button. 
  5. Have fun!
Now for my interpretation of the items this week:

1. Bokeh

I am addicted to bokeh. I snapped this shot the other day when I was prompted to “go outside” for the You Capture photo challenge. I love the way the leaves create a unique bokeh in the background.

2. Business
Ashley Sisk: Business
Yesterday, we visited my father-in-law at his place of business. I love the vintage look of the shop hours.

3. Eco-Friendly
Ashley Sisk: Eco-Friendly
I wasn’t sure what I’d photograph for eco-friendly. While we were out, I spotted “flex-fuel” on the back of a truck…that would be considered eco-friendly, right?

4. Repetition
Repetition 2 RS
I initially took this picture to represent music (it’s part of my husband’s recording equipment), but then decided that the knobs were very repetitive. I’ve got another photo that I’m entering in this month’s Photo Hunt…but I decided to save it for a little later this week.

5. Music
IMG_5938 RS
I was originally going to share a completely different photo – it was kind of a last minute lame attempt to find something that represents “music.” Then, last night our niece decided that she and her dad would sing my husband a song for his birthday (his birthday is this Thursday). You can see that he was strumming the guitar while she just leaned into his side and smiled. It was pretty much the cutest thing ever. This photo also fits the Two Mamas Made a Photo Challenge theme: Music.

Speaking of music, this song goes out to all my ladies.

What were your interpretations of the items this week? I can’t wait to check them out. Be sure to load your pictures in your blog and link up at the bottom of this post.  Feel free to grab a button to display on your blog along with your scavenger hunt items. The linky will be open until tomorrow at midnight. If you didn’t participate this week, but want to participate next week, here are your items. Since I know that some of you will be scrambling to finish your Photo Hunt items…if you need to, you may dive into your archives a little more than usual.
  1. Red (also your POTW theme)
  2. Homespace
  3. Fence
  4. Rock
  5. Sharp
At this point, I’d like to open the floodgates for scavenger hunt item suggestions. Our list is starting to get a little weak…and I’d love to have some ideas. Also, don’t forget that you have just a few more days to finish up your items for the August 2010 Photo Hunt. Those items should start to be posted on September 1. Have a great week and happy shooting!


    Your repetition is very similar to my music! I love all your photos, as usual. I really like the business photo, and I love the bokeh.

    I love the first and the last photos the most. The first one is so vivid and beautiful, and that last one is just the sweetest thing!! I think I’m gonna try to join in. The challenge of it is really inspiring! :)

    This looks like so much fun and your photos are awesome Ashley. Especially love the first one with beautiful bokeh going on. Once all my moving is over (second leg of my move takes place next month) and I’m settled, I plan to join the fun.

    As usual, great shots. Love you interpretation of repetition.

    SOO cute! Is your hubby a dj? You’re making me want to go back through that session of Claire and post it up. I had an AWESOME story board that O made out of all the shoots.

    Hi there! I joined the scavenger hunt for the first time this week and really enjoyed it so thank you for hosting it! I like your repetition picture, great pictures always!

    Just wanted to say thanks for all your advice!! I’m not gonna give up on Photoshop so if I have any questions I’ll definitely let you know!!!

    Love your Bokeh shot the best! Wonderful! :) Hope you are enjoying the weekend — it is beautiful here — still chasing butterflies for that August Hunt ! :)

    Love all of those! Especially the ‘repetition’ shot!

    Hey Ashley~ I tried posting mine earlier and several people say they can’t see the pics, I have reposted it and would love to link up again. Is there a way I can? Thanks!

    Great work Ashley! Your bokeh and repetition shots are hands down my fav…and who can resist that beautiful little girl’s smile? She is a doll!

    Your photos are amazing! i love the flower picture.

    your photos are all great. love your bokeh!

    Great photos!! I love your bokeh, just gorgeous, and your repetition shots! Hope you had a great weekend!

    question…how do I do linkys…im having issues.
    when you have a moment, could you let me know? Thanks! :)

    Okay, so you know which one is my favorite, right? The water droplets? Gorgeous! Love your interpretation of the items though.

    Love these shots! I know, I know, I really need to participate. I tell myself every week that I will join up with the SH and POTW, but I just can’t ever find the time to shoot anything other than Jae, since I’m chasing her around all night! I’ll try hard this week!

    Love the bokeh, this one as well as your POTW submission. That music photo is a treaure! Photos like that are beautiful: a happy moment captured for eternity. Love it!

    Very cool photos! The last picture with you niece is my favorite! I love how her dad is strumming a pink and white guitar LOL!

    I love your bokeh AND your business shots!!

    <3 you. <3 them. that is all :D

    I just LOVE your `Music` shot – beautiful!

    Love your shots and the challenge… HOWEVER… I’ve been having a crazy time as of late and don’t know that I’ll make the deadline with all I still have to do. LOL!! I’ll post what I can if I’m able… It’s NOT for lack of DESIRE. Just so ya’ know… ;D (((HUGS)))

    These were fun subjects, but I liked the eco challenge the most. Your shot of bokeh & repetition are tight. Bokeh is lovely though and my favorite.
