Scavenger Hunt Sunday
I was going to say something clever…but it completely escaped me. Oh well. 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 Paper Heart Camera and Abby.
Scavenger Hunt Sunday
The rules are simple:
  • Anyone can participate.
  • You’re encouraged to take five new photos this week for the challenge. Creativity is also encouraged!
  • 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).
  • Link up here on Sunday (or Tuesday at the latest) – you can use the button above.
  • 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).
  • Have fun! 

Without further discussion…here are my interpretations this week:

1. Black and White
Kitty Paw Nap RS
The other day, I was hanging around the house and realized I hadn’t seen Kitty Paw in a while. This usually means that she’s found a good spot for a nap so I quickly looked around. Sure enough, she was laying out in a sunny spot in our “office.” I love this perspective of getting low and capturing the “action” from afar. And it’s double black and white since Kitty paw is a black and white cat.

2. Reflections in Glass
Muffin Reflection RS
The same day I went searching for Kitty Paw, I also decided to bake muffins. Stay tuned for an entire post of muffins. I thought while the muffins were baking, I could capture a reflection in the oven and I kinda like how this turned out. Note to self, when inspiration seems to be lacking, start baking. For more reflections in glass, go to:

3. Headlights
Headlights RS
Part of me wants to stretch out the right side of this canvas but it wouldn’t be entirely realistic. Either way, when I saw that “headlights” would be one of our prompts, I knew I wanted to capture headlight bokeh. Yes, I was in the driver’s seat…but, I was also sitting at a stoplight.

4. Seeing Double
I really wanted to do a double exposure type of shot, but I didn’t get to it. Instead, I thought I’d take a picture of my new TOMS wedges. Not quite as comfortable as my regular TOMS but they are still pretty sweet.

5. Bare
IMG_6191 RS
Okay, so I have mixed emotions about this shot. I was inspired by Sailor & Company’s RAW(e) challenge: windows. I didn’t make her deadline, but I still decided to share my SOOC shot. I actually was stuck between two photos: this one which evoked a sense of mystery (and was a bit artsy) or a more clearly defined shot with a beautiful starburst. At the end of the day, I liked that this image was truly defined lines, just light.

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 (these can also be found at the bottom of my blog each week):
  1. Music To My Ears
  2. Hat (upcoming Paper Heart Camera prompt)
  3. Clear (Abby’s suggestion)
  4. Out Of This World (Abby’s suggestion)
  5. Sprinkles (Abby’s suggestion)

Again, thank you to Paper Heart Camera 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 28. The prompt/theme is “Summer.” Happy Shooting!
