Scavenger Hunt Sunday
This weekend has been quite a treat. On Friday evening, we officially celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary with a french dinner at Saint-Jacques…it was delicious. Then, on Saturday morning, we went out for PUMPKIN PANCAKES. For those of you who live in my area, you already love Brigs…and if you’re anything like me, you look forward to their pumpkin pancakes each year. YUM! Then we made our way to the fair. Needless to say, it was a wonderful weekend.

But enough about me. 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! Next week’s items are sponsored by Kat, the Mortal Muses, Paper Heart Camera, and Jenny Rain.
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. Words
All you have to do is FLY RSI actually started to pursue this prompt by going to Unfortunately, I couldn’t manage to download my creation (or maybe I was just too lazy to figure it out – completely possible). Then I ran across a postcard that Kat sent me a few weeks ago. It was already a beautiful postcard, but I played it up in Pixel Bender. I love the message.

2. Under 
Parisian Shoes RSThese are my new Parisian shoes…aren’t they cute? And yes, technically this is an old shot…but I just now processed it. I believe my camera was under a table in order to capture this shot. Okay, you got me…it’s a stretch.
Photography love...

3. Orange
IMG_9356 RSThis is one of my favorite shots from the 2-month old session I posted on Friday. I was hoping that Zan would toss his legs back all the way. When I told his mom and grandma what I wanted, they took off his pants and sure enough, his legs (or rather leg) went up. So cute!
Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge

4. Fly Up in the Air RS
We live pretty close to the airport so seeing airplanes isn’t really a big deal. However, seeing this old school plane, then capturing it…definitely cool.

5. Always Look on the Bright SideAutumn Leaf RS
I really don’t know what this has to do with the prompt. I was doing laundry yesterday morning and had several items from the hunt outstanding. So, while my husband was trimming the bushes, I thought I’d photograph the leaves. From his point of view, yard work is not exactly the ideal way to spend your Saturday afternoon. On the bright side, it’s a beautiful day!

What were your interpretations of the items this week? I can’t wait to check them out. Be sure to load your pictures on 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 (these can also be found at the bottom of my blog each week):
  1. Macro/Close-Up
  2. Found Texture (not applied; Exploring with a Camera theme: click HERE)
  3. Home (Mortal Muses current theme – Friday will kick off Mosaic Muse…be sure to link up)
  4. Cover (Paper Heart Camera prompt)
  5. The Tree (Jenny Rain’s suggestion; advanced suggestion – Kent Weakley tree)
Mosaic Muse Photography love... Rainmakers and Stormchasers
Again, thank you to Kat, the Mortal Muses, Paper Heart Camera, and Jenny Rain for so many great scavenger hunt items. 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). 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 42. The prompt/theme is “Memories.” Happy Shooting!


    Love your orange picture! So cute!

    Nice shots, That pumpkin shot is beautiful- and I love your looking on the bright side, that was a tricky prompt!

    Ha! I had a hard time with The Bright Side prompt too!…wait, was that my great idea?? Wonderful collection as always – love that you bought a pair of shoes while in Europe ;) and am curious about the postcard from Kat…was it illustrated like that or did you use an effect? Pretty! Thanks for hostessing and have a great week!

    That pumpkin shot is SO cute!! What a great idea! I love the fly one too…very cool sky :)

    Oh your new shoes are so pretty! Love this weeks set Ashley, what a neat idea with pumpkins and Zen.

    That postcard is awesome! Great set. :)

    LOVE these. Great work. :) I love the “always on the bright side” shot SO much.

    Great finds, love your new shoes, and the beautiful leaf shot!

    your orange shot is my favourite and yes those shoes are very cute :)

    Definitely love the orange shot. And the Words postcard is cool. I was thinking for the On the Bright Side shot that yes fall is here, but on the bright side, spring will come again. That’s just my interpretation of your photo.
    Thanks again for this great hunt.

    That pumpkin shot cracks me up. You’re so creative :P!

    Love your orange image. So well composed!

    I am coming back to the fun and this week’s prompts were very challenge to me., but a good exercise. I am so happy to be back.
    I love your last shot, it does give me a sense of bright side and new beginnings.

    Come ON!! I was going to surprise you with a real comment…not a secret email comment between friends, and I was going to try to be in the top 10. FAIL! You are one popular gal! ;-)

    These are awesome once again! LOVE the first one, the 2nd is probably my favorite…and that pic of Zan, so creative I love it!

    Oh, and I forgot to thank you for the heads up on the canvas co. I posted a pic of TT today in black and white, and am considering getting it made into a canvas. Still deciding…

    Welp, love and hugs & have a great weekend friend! XO

    I almost took pictures of leaves for “bright side”, since mother nature is looking very bright in the Fall… but I didn’t get around to it!

    Love your first shot! It is gorgeous!

    By the way, my Dad flies planes like your “old school plane”. After seeing my SHS posts, he is participating for the first time today (he is HiFlight). Go tell him Hi!

    Fantastic shots, great job :)

    Love that postcard – beautiful! :-)

    LOL what a cute pumpkin patch Ashley and those black patent shoes too. Every one of these is lovely but especially that postcard with the pixel bender and you nailed always look on the bright side perfectly. You sound as if you’ve had a terrific weekend.

    Ha! I love the orange shot. Too cute!

    Hey Ashley-Happy Anniversary. Your weekend sounds fabulous. Pumpkin pancakes. Hmmm, bet I could figure that out.
    You have some fun pics. I do like that fly shot-wow and the postcard from Kat is gorgeous, but the baby and pumpkins, your low view of shoes-that’s keeping it fun. Happy day to you.

    Your bright side is bright, light autumn pic !!!! Pumpkins and a baby is so cute. That text is so well found in theme fly !

    Love the airplane shot, very cool! Great job this week with the prompts!

    Oh that “orange” photo just takes the cake!


    Love your leaf. Have a beautiful day. xxx

    Oh my gosh, that postcard is captivating. I love your under shot, as well.

    Gorgeous photo’s!
    I think the baby amongst the pumpkins is my favourite too!

    I love the photo with the pumpkins and the baby! What a creative idea!

    Love the baby/pumpkin shot! Sounds liek you had a great weekend and I am very jealous of the pumpkin pancakes!

    Awesome photos! Your new shoes are beautiful. I especially love the pumpkin shot. That is really precious. It sounds like you had a great weekend, too.

    I will link up tomorrow. :)

    Yummy, pumpkin pancakes are delightful.

    That is a very neat Postcard and each time I see Pixel Bender I am a little jealous that I don’t have PS.

    The leaf shot is just stunning. I love the texture, the DOF, the composition, and the blown background makes the colors pop in my opinion.

    My father in law has a plane similar to that…it is very cool.

    That orange shot is too cute…and I love the plane!

    oh my heavens, I might have to try that pumpkin one – sooooo adorable!

    Fantastic Ashley- love those ballet flats- I live in mine as soon as the weather cools :) Sorry I didn’t get to participate this week- I didn’t have access to uploading & processing photos this week. More on that later- but I won’t miss next week. :)

    I wanted to thank you for coordinating the Scavenger Hunt each week… I really needed this creative boost… Loving my visits to other blogs & having to stretch my mind for my interpretation of the words.
    I’m such a nut for nature that your leaves picture has to be my fave this week! actually, all your photos are outstanding – learning from the pros is great!
