Scavenger Hunt Sunday
This week, I didn’t pick up my camera at all until Friday night. I spent most of my week going through my macros from last Sunday, editing one at a time. I’m not complaining at all…just the opposite. I have really enjoyed expressing my creative side through editing (and I hope you’ve enjoyed it too). I have fallen back in love with texture and just can’t seem to get enough (thank you Kim Klassen). I clearly love this side of photography and while I will continue to improve my portrait work (photographing people), I will always love still life photography. 

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! Next week’s items are sponsored by Dina and her son Sam at 4 Lettre Words.
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!
Without further discussion…here are my interpretations this week:

1. The View Above – “Let There Be Light”
Isaiah 60_19 RS
Genesis 1:3-5 And God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day. 

Photography love...

You’ll later see this image posted in the ACoLab (different processing), but I loved the contrast of the sky against the treeline. Granted, I could probably have left this photo alone, but I was in the mood for aged-postcard processing.

2. Something Hot (November 2010 Item)
I had no idea what to photograph for “something hot.” I thought about what we have in our house that is “hot,” and remembered we have some Texas Pete in one of our cabinets. I was kinda bored with the shot until I processed it – now it looks like POP art!

3. Something Cold (November 2010 Item)
Cold RS
I have a feeling that I will be re-shooting this image. This is frost that hangs from the ice maker in our freezer. It’s not my favorite shot this week, but it works. I’m looking forward to your interpretations of this particular item.

4. Electronic
Electronic RS
I went around the house shooting speakers, remotes, etc, but nothing really excited  me. The truth is that when I think about electronics, there are two things that I have on me at almost all times: my camera and my computer. This is the power cord to my laptop. I’d have a hard time editing and blogging without it. Besides that…I like the composition of this shot.

5. Sparkle
Sparkle RS
Finally, another ornament from my dining room table. I don’t think it’s as ornate as the one I showed you the other week, but it’s still really pretty.

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. Black and White (next week’s Paper Mama theme)
  2. I Ate This… (November 2010 Photo Hunt)
  3. Historic (Dina’s Suggestion)
  4. Off-Center (Dina’s Suggestion)
  5. The End (Dina’s Suggestion)
Again, thank you Dina and SAM for suggesting so many great scavenger hunt items (Dina tells me that she uses the scavenger hunt as a vocabulary exercise with her children…they often help her find the items she photographs each week). If you’d like to contribute items to the list, just leave me a comment or send me an email with your suggestions. 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. So, off you go…happy shooting!
