Scavenger Hunt Sunday
I hope everyone had a great week…it’s hard for me to believe that it’s already November. Christmas is just around the corner, and I have no idea what I’m going to get anyone. So, if you’re family…and you’re reading this…give a girl a hint! Anyways, it’s that time again…Scavenger Hunt Sunday. 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!
Oh by the way, I’ll be celebrating a friend’s birthday most of the afternoon…so if I don’t stop by to visit this morning, I’ll be sure to visit this evening. Now, without further discussion…here are my interpretations this week:

1. Boo!

When I boarded my plane on Thursday morning, it was still dark outside. I looked outside and I thought I might have just enough light from the gate to capture something (hey, I was bored so I was just screwing around with my camera before take off)…when I later looked at this photo, it appears that a small cloud…or GHOST is hovering over the plane. Do you see it? Boo!

2. Black

Katie Julius is starting a new photo challenge called Lens Art. I’m excited about any new photo challenge, but this one is kinda cool because it has everything to do with turning a photograph into art. This week’s theme is COLOR, so while I initially took this shot with “black” in mind (because it was taken at night and I really enhanced the darkness of the background), it better represents art through COLOR!

Ideally, I would have kept this shot pretty natural. However, the noise in this photo was (in my opinion) pretty bad, so I decided to get artistic and play with some of the painting tools to create an interesting effect. Like I said, not my typical style, but kind of fun. For more “Lens Art,” go to:

3. Texture

I am really enjoying flying for the sake of photography. Although I really hate those early morning flights, I was excited on Thursday to be up in the air at sunrise. Lately, I’ve even been carrying my DSLR (rather than my point and shoot…although there is nothing wrong with a point and shoot) to capture the moment. For this particular shot, I wanted to use texture (specifically several textures by Kim Klassen) to enhance an already beautiful image. I think this particular scripture really fits the photo. For more Scripture and a Snapshot, go to:

4. Wet

I was glad that it rained this week – don’t you love when nature provides your scavenger hunt items? At some point, I’m going to try that trick Karli shared a few weeks ago…CLICK HERE. Maybe I’ll get my husband to help me.

5. Language
Language RS
Speaking of my husband…this is the message he left for me this week. You can also see some of the quotes I’ve written in the lower right hand corner, another one he wrote in the upper right hand corner, and then some house notes in the upper left hand corner. 

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. Self-Portrait
  2. Handmade (November 2010 Photo Hunt)
  3. Orange (November 2010 Photo Hunt)
  4. Candle
  5. Traffic Signals or Signs
Also, I’d thought I’d remind you (in case you haven’t already seen it) that the November 2010 Photo Hunt has been posted. There are only 10 items this month. I will use two items from this list for Scavenger Hunt Sunday each week throughout the month. Click HERE to sign up.

    Oh I love your language photo, how sweet! I’m glad I was able to do the hunt this week, I missed the last one!

    Awwwww. You’re husband sounds like such a sweetie! Wish my husband left me messages like that.

    These are all great! I love your scripture/texture photo.
    This is such a fun blog hop. One of these days I hope to join in.

    I love your scripture shot – I can just feel God in it! Super beautiful!

    And I really like how ‘artsy’ your other shots are!

    Amazing photos this week! I really like something about each one!

    It does look like a hovering ghost. I really enjoyed all of your shots this week, especially texture with the verse and the sweet message from your husband.

    Thanks for linking to Bonnie’s tutorial. That is flippin’ cool. Even the hubster enjoyed it!!!

    Beautiful shots Ashley! Love the artsy one black/color one.

    One of these day I will have time to do this again. Love your picks.

    These are all fabulous! Especially like the feel of your *black* shot :) Bummer, I couldn’t participate this week :P

    Your photos are always so good. I love your black. I totally see your ghost in Boo. I took a wet picture like that recently. It’s one I may have lost on the crashed computer.

    They are all awesome! My favorite is the wet one….so cool…

    Your rendition of Language made me smile! Oh, the little things that count.

    You are right, you did capture what looked like a ghost in the first picture! Hope your friends birthday was fun and hope you have a great week.

    Ashley I’m late with the commenting here – I woke up with the alarm at 6 am – linked in here asleep and went to bed for another 3 hours lol.

    Your hubby is such a sweetie writing a note like that and it’s my favourite this week and that scripture verse is just so perfect for a shot above the clouds.

    I’m interested in that Lens art meme. I’ve done some arty stuff with my photos but never been brave enough to put it on the web.

    I haven’t got a clue what Karli’s trick was so I’m away to click and find out.

    Have a lovely weekend and your prayers are valued.

    :) Rosie

    Love the paint effect in your black shot! I’ve been playing around with that after I saw it used by another blogger and haven’t been quite satisfied with the results. Yours looks great!

    Very good Idea! New follower,hope you stop by! :)

    Love your photos! My favorites this week are language and wet! What your hubby wrote is too cute!

    I’m so glad you stopped by my blog! I fixed my Blogger toolbar so now I am able to have followers :]

    Thanks for hosting! Can you believe I made it on a sunday?? Great shots and loved the themes this week-challenging but approachable.

    you are one lucky girl to have a man so sentimental (he’s lucky too). And I love the shot of you looking outside the plane window. Just great photos.

    Beautiful shots!!! I love your language….it’s so sweet!!! But they’re all great!!! I’m overloaded lately…but I AM going to be back in for next week!! Take care!

    I love your wet photo. :)

    Lucky is the ring tone on my phone for when my husband calls!!! I played that song a lot while he was deployed…especially the “lucky to be coming home again” part.

    Very creative work this week!
    Hugs from Europe!

    Your language shot is so sweet – what a husband you have :) !! Love your wet and texture as well !!
    Have a beautiful week!

    Your language is so very sweet! And wet is creative.

    Good work, per usual. :)

    Like everyone else, I’m in love with your intrepretation of Language!

    I like the wet photograph. Language is very sweet. I had to take a break this week. I did try to get a few but didn’t even load them to my computer. Looking forward to next week.

    Great shots!

    Loved your texture shot – you’re right, that verse totally fits. :)

    Your language shot made me go Awwwwww… ;) We used to do notes everyday… I should start that again.

    I love your airplane shots and your wet shot is awesome. I almost took that same shot, your last photo. Great pictures.

    Great captures!

    Another awesome scavenger hunt.

    Gorgeous colors and I love the filter you used! Thanks for linking up!

    Great pictures! I love the notes your hubby wrote you! How sweet is he! I bet that just makes your day every time you read those!
