Scavenger Hunt Sunday
I really think that weekends should be longer…two days just isn’t enough.  Anyways, 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 (hint hint).

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. Mood
Mood blogFor POTW (picture of the week), I submitted a different photo. I really wanted to shoot something different…something that really spoke to “mood.” Well, that didn’t happen…and then yesterday afternoon, I was getting ready for church (yes, we go to church on Saturday afternoon) when I decided I might try something different with my hair. I’m sure you’ll agree with me that anytime you decide to try to do something different with your hair on a whim, the possibility of it going wrong dramatically increase…you become frustrated…hair starts falling out…it suddenly is very hot, etc. 

Come to think about it, I’m probably the most “moody” when I’m getting ready. So, to commemorate that feeling, I thought I’d spell MOOD with a few girlish toiletries.

2. Something Masculine
Masculine 1 blog
I had a hard time figuring out what I wanted to shoot for “masculine,” so I asked my husband.
Masculine 2 blog
We decided that an older muscle car really spoke “masculine.” One problem, we don’t own a muscle car.
Masculine 3 blog
So, we went to the store and bought a Hot Wheels car. I used my macro lens for these shots and I think they turned out pretty cool. 
Which one do you like the best? 

3. Something Feminine
Something Feminine RS
I shared this shot earlier in the week, raw. I’ve done a little processing to really add that vintage charm.

4. First or Last Initial
This is the top of my silver jewelry box with my maiden name’s monogram on top.

5. Architecture

I cheated…I pulled these two shots from my Photo Walk. I hadn’t shared either, so I thought this might be a nice time to share.
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. As promised, I’m including TWO August 2010 Photo Hunt items (one of these is a bonus, I can only commit to including one each week, but I may decide to be more generous).  
  1. Leading Lines (also your POTW theme)
  2. Something Comfortable (August 2010 Photo Hunt item)
  3. Feet (August 2010 Photo Hunt item) 
  4. Sight
  5. Sweet
Have a great week and happy shooting!

    Fantastic shots Ashley!!! I think my favorite is the muscle car! Such detail shots!!!

    great photos ashley! i love your MOOD shot.

    Your MOOD shot is so incredibly creative. Love, love it. This is probably my favourite photo challenge right now. Your themes are so inspiring. I’m so glad I found your site.

    Your MOOD shot is awesome! very creative. :)

    I love the Mood shot, so different,

    I swear. I’m going to do this. This week.

    i love your car!!! feminine is very …dainty…and you set a very creative mood!

    I finally got my post up! I had so much fun working on this this week. Thanks for hosting! You always have terrific shots!

    i love your interpretations! You actually made me break out one of my husbands model cars that he built to see what I could capture of it. So glad i could participate this time around! Looking forward to next week.

    This is such a neat thing you host! I’m so inspired after looking at everyone’s pictures. I think I’m going to give it a go for next Sunday.

    Like everyone else, I really like your feminine shot. The second car shot is my favorite, but all three are great!

    I love your pictures as always, but my favorite is your MOOD. LOVE IT. SO CREATIVE!

    I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your “Mood” photo –so creative and artistic!

    OH my goodness! I love LOVE your macro lens! I am dying for one and you have convinced me even more. Those are some awesome pictures and I love your blog! I hopped on over here from “From here to eternity” and am very intrigued by this Photo Scavenger thing! If you want please critique my photos!

    Ashley, please forgive my ignorance, but can you tell me what the POTW and Photo Hunt picture refers to. Are these part of a different challenge you are a part of? Thanks!

    Love the mood shot! I can’t hear “mood” and not think of the fabric store on Project Runway.

    And I agree with your selection – muscle cars are totally masculine. And awesome. Especially in those pics!

    I love that you got a hot wheels car, that is too funny! The pictures turned out awesome. I love, love the something feminine picture it is so beautiful! I hope you have a wonderful week!

    I love the feminine objects. Ashley, you are so gifted. I tried taking a picture of my dessert tonight,and couldn’t even do that without getting the reflection from the flash. You make photography seem like it’s meant for the average citizen, when in truth, us average citizens should stick paying for photographers! Terrific post!

    The masculine shots are on spot and I really loved your mood as well. Super creative!

    I’ll have mine up as soon as I get done eating my breakfast burrito. ;)

    Oh goody…I just found this. Looks like SO much fun. I will make a list and start shooting. I enjoyed your collection of all the memes too. Yes, I made a calendar of all of them too but got completely buried underneath. I need a better plan. :)

    Masculine – definitely the 2nd shot!!

    Mood – what a great idea!

    LOVE the 1st architecture shot.

    Love these, I really love your masculine and your initial shot!!!

    Loved your mood shot and the last architecture shot! Great photos, as always :)

    WOW – love your “mood” and “feminine” shots!
