Scavenger Hunt Sunday and 31 Days of Reflection-Day16

Hello and Welcome. - This is my first time participating in Scavenger Hunt Sunday

 over on Ashley's blog, Ramblings and Photo's.  This is a really interesting and fun challenge.  Each week you are give 5 different themes/words that you are then to take photographs of and share back with a link. 
This week the words were:  Abstract, Round, Fire, Seeing Faces in Strange Places, and Stars.  - Everyone does their own interpretation of the themes.

Here are my photo's.

First up,  Abstract
This is actually a Macro shot of a portion of an Abstract Paperweight that my husband bought me several years ago.  I really love all the different colors and patterns in the paperweight and thought it was just ideal for this challenge.

Next up, Round  - I took this picture out at the local Pumpkin Patch this week.  I'm not sure what these wheels originally belonged on but I rather like the way they look in this shot.
I have this really fun candle holder that has black ghosts and  cauldron.  The holder casts ghost shadows on the wall which is really cool.

Seeing Faces in Strange Places:  This one was a bit of a challenge and I did use a photo that I took a couple of weeks ago.  I'm not sure if it qualifies as faces in strange places or strange faces as you will see in the photo. 
Normally they are not all on the bed at one time.  I happened to open the door to go to bed and saw them all laying on the bed so I quickly shut the door, ran and got the camera, opened the door and "snapped" quickly.  This is the result.  Don't their eyes look awesome!


For this photo I decided to get a little creative.  I took a Glass Drinking Jug that had stars on it, I photographed it outside and then cropped and added texture to the photo.  The texture is, Medieval Magic which is a free texture offered by Bonnie over at Pixel Dust Photo Art.

In keeping with my 31 Days of "musical" Reflection today I am sharing,
For the Beauty of the Earth - This video has some gorgeous photo's as well so be sure to watch as you listen.  Enjoy.
