Scavenger Hunt Sunday - January 29, 2012

Well here we are once again at the start of a new week and it's time once again for,
Scavenger Hunt Sunday    on Ashley's blog, Ramblings and Photo's.  This is always such a fun challenge.  Each week you are given 5 "Prompts" and the object is to take photo's during the week relating to each of the prompts and then post them.  You can use (Archived) photo's if you get stumped but hopefully that doesn't happen.

This weeks prompts were:
Smile, Stand Alone, Rusty or Old, Artificial and Repeating Pattern.  So are you ready to go on the hunt with me?  Then let's get started:
Smile:

I tried earlier in the week to do a "photo session" with Coleen to get a picture of her smiling.  Let's just say none of those photo's were very successful.  Today however she was outside on my mom's porch and picked up the cat we've dubbed, "Piglet" and I snapped this sweet photo of the two of them.  Look at that natural smile, ah beautiful!


Stand Alone:
I live in a town called, Walla Walla and this is a statue of one of the Indian Chiefs of the Walla Walla Tribe,  His name was, PeoPeoMoxMox-Yellow Bird pronounced: (Pew, Pew, Mox Mox) - Try not to laugh. You can read about him here: 
While some say this statue is not a true rendering of how he actually looked I rather like it. 

Rusty or Old:  Oh this one was difficult.  Not so much in finding old or rusty things but more so because I had a hard time deciding which photo to share.  So I'm going to share 2 for this prompt.


Today Coleen and I took a walk and discovered these items along the way.  Both are located on the grounds of Walla Walla Community College.  The first is some sort of Metal Art Sculpture and the next one is part of a Sculpture called a, Campanile which means, Bell Tower in Italian. 

I'm also sharing a little video of Coleen playing on the Campanile.

Artificial:
I borrowed my mom's Artificial Fruit and got creative using texture and text in (Gimp and Picnik) I used a couple of Free textures from Bonnie (Pixel Dust Photo Art) the textures I used were: Goodness and Acceptance both of which Bonnie offers, Free.

Repeating Pattern:  This one stumped me a little and then I settled on this photo:

I think the Geometric Design of the College's Dome qualifies as a, Repeating Pattern; don't you?

So that's it for this week.  I hope you've enjoyed my Interpretations of the Prompts.  Don't forget to stop by Ashley's blog and check out some of the other links.

Next week:  Strike a Pose, Footwear, Hobby, Shiny, and Color Me Green.

  4. nice collection - my favorite being your "smile" shot - sweet! I too gave the ole 'artificial fruit' a go, but decided to ditch my attempt; yours on the other hand is very nice (like the texture and processing).
