Scavenger Hunt Sunday
This has been a rather interesting week. First an earthquake…then a hurricane…a 30th birthday party and trying to mix in a newborn photo session (I’m actually doing that this morning, so I hope to share a sneak peak later in the week). Either way, it’s Sunday. If you’ve been participating in the Scavenger Hunt each week, I hope this week’s items inspired you too. If you’re new to the Scavenger Hunt…WELCOME! Next week’s items are sponsored by  Paper Heart Camera, Chelsea, and Abby.
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. Creativity is also encouraged!
  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. Leave comments for at least five entries around yours (we have so many new participants each week, this is the only way I know to be inclusive).
  6. Have fun! 
Without further discussion…here are my interpretations this week:

1. Old and New
Old and New RS
Last weekend we bought my husband a new pair of shoes. His old shoes are on the left…his new shoes are on the right. I probably should have taken his shoes outside. Those old shoes are nasty!

2. Night Photography
In the Dark RS
I really need to spend some time with this prompt…it just wasn’t happening this week. So, I grabbed my camera and walked upstairs to go to bed. I turned out all the lights and focused on our bathroom door. Kitty Paw ran in. I called her for a good five minutes hoping she would walk out so I could have a picture of her walking out the door into the darkness. Nope – she wasn’t having it. Turns out she’d put herself in “jail.” If you don’t understand that reference…look at Friday’s post.

3. Music Dance RS
Sometimes my mind seems to take better photographs than what I’m actually able to capture. I had this incredible vision of the camera pointed at my bare feet while I wore a long flowy skirt…I would spin around and the camera would capture the motion of skirt. Maybe I’m just lazy or maybe I just got  a tad busy…either way, that image still sits in my mind’s hard drive. However, Friday night I realized that if I did not finish the hunt, I may not have another chance (with Hurricane Irene and all). I came home from the gym, set up my camera and started dancing with my MP3 player (not an iPod…a Sony Walkman).
Photography love...

4. Cheesy
Cheese Toast RS
…or rather cheese toast. Yum.

5. Sun Spiderweb in the Sun RS
I have a confession…when I first saw “Sun” on our list, I started singing “Black Hole Sun.” Can you tell I’m a child of the 90s? Not exactly the type of music I listen to these days. Anyways…I actually had an entirely different shot ready to go for this prompt when I saw yet another spider web. In case you’re counting, this would be my third spider web of the month. Once again…I didn’t have my macro lens on me. I guess I don’t really need it.

Again, thank you to Paper Heart Camera, Chelsea, and Abby for so many great scavenger hunt items. I’ve actually got several weeks worth of prompts waiting in my inbox, but if you’d like to contribute items to the list, just send me an email with your suggestions (I can better keep track of them this way…and we’ve got some great prompts coming up in future weeks). Each week, I will select one reader’s prompt list, add those items to what is currently on tap and give the selected reader a shout out on my blog during Scavenger Hunt Sunday. Also, be sure to come back tomorrow for Shoot and Edit: Part 1, Week 33. The prompt/theme is “Ocean/Pool/Lake/River.” Happy Shooting!
