Scavenger Hunt Sunday
It’s that time again…Scavenger Hunt Sunday. Last week, I had really high hopes that we’d have over 100 participants…and then I stuck you with a bad list. Hopefully, I’ve given you some items this week that will give us record participation. So, if you’ve been participating in the Scavenger Hunt each week, I hope this week’s items inspired you. If you’re new to the Scavenger Hunt…WELCOME!
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 Tuesday at the latest) – you can use the button above. 
  5. Have fun!
So, without further discussion…here are my interpretations this week:

1. The 5 Senses
IMG_7373 RS
Piglets are adorable…PIGS are not. In fact, they’re rather gross, but when I saw pigs at the fair, my first thought was “the 5 senses!” The pigs are located in an area adjacent to the sheep. While the sheep were getting their fall hair cut, the pigs were just laying around…stinking up the joint. My husband said the smell was making him nauseous, but it didn’t bother me. I heard a few of them making pig noises…you know, oink oink…but I wasn’t interested in touching them (hey, I had a camera in hand – don’t want to ruin the camera) – nor could I…a sign said “DO NOT TOUCH.” Ironically enough, we visited the livestock after eating (taste) hot dogs…at least they were 100% beef hot dogs.

2. Child or Children
IMG_7670 RS
One way to get a two year old to stay put is to bury his feet in the sand (thanks Kenny). I saw some bright canoes on the sand, and thought I might get Dustyn to stand in front of them. You can’t tell me he isn’t standing in front of them.

3. Dining
Fair Food RS
Jeremy is like a human vacuum cleaner or garbage disposal. I mentioned above that we ate hot dogs before visiting the livestock. After visiting the livestock, he wanted some sausage.

4. Night
Night Fair RS
If you look to the right side of the photo, you can kinda see the hint of a sunset. On Monday evening, as we were leaving the fair, I wanted to capture the fair at sunset. I love the way this looks.

5. Sky
Vintage Ferris Wheel RS
Because I can…I thought I’d share another Ferris Wheel shot – this one with texture (because I’m in the mood for texture these days). Can you see the sun trying to peak in at the bottom of the shot?

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 (or your Flickr photostream) 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 Tuesday night at midnight (EST). If you didn’t participate this week, but want to participate next week, here are your items:
  1. My Town
  2. Something Vintage (October 2010 item)
  3. Tilt-Shift Photography (October 2010 item – Tutorial Here or Tilt-Shift Maker here or Coffeeshop’s Teeny Tiny World)
  4. Dress Up (this could also be “in disguise” – October 2010 item)
  5. Chocolate
Have a great week and happy shooting!

    What a great idea. Just discovered this blog through looking at others. Might try and take part next time as love to take photos with my digital SLR. G

    Love, really Love the Sky photo. It’s gorgeous! Good job on all finding all the photos!

    I REALLY love your night and sky photos! I wanted to go to the fair this year but we never made it.

    Hi Ashley, love all of your shots. The night photo is beautiful, and the child shot is cute in front of the boats with his feet covered in sand. I think pigs are cute, but of course I can’t smell him from here. LOL Hope I can play next week. :-)

    Great shots, as always! I love the dining one, and night is awesome!


    Wow Ahsley, your photography never ceases to amaze me! I LOVE your fair shots…especially sky :) Have a great week!

    Ashley these are all awesome shots. My fave is the sky shot! That is incredibly beautiful from the perspective of the ride, the color of that sky, and the texture. ♥

    Hello Ashley, beautiful hunt!

    I need to get a bit more organised to join the next one again! Have a great week. xxx

    Hey Ashley! Beautiful photos! I LOVE your last two!!!

    Love the ferris wheel shot! Wow!

    Just love that night shot!!!

    I am loving both your night and sky shots!!

    Oh, and my son saw the picture of Dustyn and asked if we could take a plane since he’s ‘way far away’ so they could play together! I thought it was cute.

    I’m back! The marathon was overwhelming and my recovery has been slow, but I managed to get in my post for this week. hope you like my shots!
    LOVE the ferris wheel photo and all your shots of course. :)

    Cheers – and Happy Sunday. Gotta run!

    I love them all – your tip for getting a kiddo to stand still is really cute! My favorite picture this week is probably the Night shot. I love the fair at night! It’s so colorful!

    The processing you did for your sky image is fantastic. This week’s list was somewhat overwhelming for me but it did make me take some photos before today. I will be out of my element again with Tilt photography for next week but what’s a photo challenge without any challenge? : )

    love these.Hopefully next week I will have time for this.The last photo is really cool. I bet you had fun at the fair. what a good place to take pictures.

    Oh my goodness I love that snout picture, lol!

    Oh my…..your night & sky are absolutely stunning!!!!! Dan was looking over my shoulder & said AWESOME!

    great shots Ashley! The top one is my favorite this week, what a brave girl you are! hope i’m able to get to mine, been a busy weekend, happy sunday!

    Happy Sunday! I love the pictures! I think my favorite is the one of the pigs nose, too cute and an awesome shot. I also am now craving a big hotdog like the one your hubby was eating LOL! Hope you have a wonderful day today!

    Oh…those last two are glorious!

    Those last two shots – stunning!!!!

    These are all wonderful, but I am partial to your child shot. :)

    Beautiful photos again! Your “pig statement” made me laugh! :-)

    These are all stunning, Ashley! I love love love love the last one. The processing…oh, I’m smitten.

    Your photos are totally stunning! I’m hoping to be able to participate this week but I have one or two more pics I need to hunt down. ;)

    I love the fair!!! The shot of the pig snout is great, I like that it’s in black and white. I LOVE the night shot of all of the rides, and the hint of sunset! Truly gorgeous!

    Your night and sky shots are AMAZING! WOWZERS!

    Love the ‘grain’ in your piggy picture.

    Love the two fair shots – awesome!

    Love your interpretation of the 5 senses. I wasn’t sure what to do at first for that one. I love your night shot as well

    Love these!!!! 45 participants is awesome even if you were shooting for 100!!!

    I will say though it seems fun I’m not a photographer, but I can appreciate all the beauty I’ve seen.

    Beautiful pictures! I love the night shot and the ferris wheel. Gorgeous!

    LOVE your 5 senses shot, and sky. Awesome shots,

    Very creative! I love them all!

    Wonderful shots. My favorites are the Night and Sky!!!

    ooh, I really love that ferris wheel but what really sold me was the pig snout! great shots!

    Hi! I just found you through one of your participants – Ashley…Plus 3. What gorgeous shots. I’ll have to participate next week :)

    Absolutely beautiful! I’m in love with night and sky.

    lovely photos! I think the ferris wheel and the child shot are my favorites!

    I keep meaning to do this, but I never seem to get all the pictures. :(

    Your shots are all so amazing.. I love your five senses photo, What a great shot.. But all of them are great.. Hope you have a wonderful week.. Thank you so much for this Hunt, It helps me think out of the box… Hugs, Linda

    I love the night photo. I had a hard time with that one.

    Seriously. So in love with that ferris wheel picture!!!

    Wow, Ashley these are all wonderful shots, there is not one that I don’t like.

    These are all so beautiful…

    I adore that last shot! Really lovely, and there’s something quite vintage about it!

    It’s my first time taking part this week, and I had a few issues, but I made it!

    I love that night shot! Your hubs looks like he’s eating a brat, lol. And the wee one is a prodigy, even the canoe thinks so. :0) LOVE the pig!

    Must say your night shot is amazing. I absolutely love it. The pig is fun…I can’t believe when I was a kid I sometimes rode my uncles pigs for fun. Imagine the smell!
    The ferris wheel shot too is really fab. Love them.

    These are all so well done! Did you use a tripod for your night shot? It’s so crisp and looks like you didn’t use a flash…I am curious. Really beautiful shots Ashley.

    I love the perspective on your first shot, and the “Night” shot is just beautiful!

    Justin is the same way about food. He has been dying to go to this place locally that serves a 2lb burger…EIGHT patties!!

    I love those last two shots! Amazing. And, the pig commentary made me laugh…so true, piglets are cute – pigs, not so much!

    I love those last two shots! Amazing. And, the pig commentary made me laugh…so true, piglets are cute – pigs, not so much!

    LOVE your night shot! LOVE IT! The ferris wheel is pretty awesome too though :) I hope to be participating again soon once I get a little more used to life with a newborn. I really miss the scavenger hunt!

    I Love this idea! I am going to try it! I need the challenge to help me grow! So this weeks list I will post pics come Sunday this week is that how it works?
