Scavenger Hunt Sunday-November 20

Hi! - Welcome back.  It's been a fairly quiet week here (whew!) - My mom's been doing well this week which makes me feel a lot less stressed.  So I had some time this week to play around and capture some photo's for this weeks, Scavenger Hunt Sunday
This weeks prompts were:  Mainly One Color, Around the Home,
Reflection, Writing and Water.

So here is what I came up with. 

Mainly One Color:
Once again I've captured one of the many squirrels that come to the feeder out back to eat peanuts everyday.  This little guy just sat there eating his peanut while I snapped away.  So cute!

Next up is, Around the house:  This is a pretty typical scene around our house on a daily basis.  You can always find one of them somewhere in this position.
My next two photo's have been editing using techniques on Picnik

Reflection: I wanted to do something different other then a picture of a reflection in water since (water) is also one of this weeks prompts.  I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to do and then an idea came to me.  I must admit I actually took my camera with me in hopes of finding something just like this to photograph.  I also had my "model" with me as well since she so enjoys visiting the local Fabric/Craft Store.
This is my Granddaughter, Coleen looking at a Christmas ornament and her reflection in another ornament.

Writing:  This one was tougher but after some thought I went and got my old "memories" box out and found a letter that my mom & dad had both written to me while I was away at Bible College many years ago.  This letter was extra special because my mom always wrote me while I was there but my dad wasn't much of a letter writer so gettting a letter from both of them was very special.   I decided to give it a bit of a "vintage" feel since the letter is almost 40 years old. I added a Postage stamp frame around it keeping with the theme of writing/letters.

Lastly,  Water: This is a bit different because I decided to capture the stream of water running from one of our drain pipes into my flower bed.  I like the simplicity of this photo.
Hope you have enjoyed this little photo journey.

Be sure to stop by Ashley's blog and check out the other links as I'm sure you'll be delighted by visiting others blogs and seeing their interpretations of these prompts.

To all my US followers I wish you all a very warm, safe and Happy Thanksgiving this week.

To everyone else may you have a great week.

Peace and Love
