Scavenger Hunt Sunday - June 24, 2012

Hello and welcome to the latest edition of Scavenger Hunt Sunday.

This weeks prompts are:  Warped, Concentric Circles, Gear, Glazed and Marble.

I thought this week would be easy compared to last weeks prompts but boy was I wrong.  I had no idea what I was going to do for some of the prompts.

Starting with,  WARPED - I put off trying to find something for the prompt and then an idea popped into my head after reading the dictionary defintion of the word:
Definition of WARP

transitive verb

1: to arrange (yarns) so as to form a warp

2a : to turn or twist out of or as if out of shape; especially : to twist or bend out of a plane b : to cause to judge, choose, or act wrongly or abnormally : pervert c : distort d : to deflect from a course

Coleen was happy to oblige Grandma and warped herself out of shape for this prompt.  Don't you wish you could do this!

CONCENTRIC CIRCLES - I did a "Google" search on this and found that in nature there are certain flowers that have concentric cirles and onions are a perfect example of concentric circles.  Since our local (and famous) Walla Walla Sweet Onions just started showing up in stores I did a little collage of one.

Then today we had a storm show up complete with hail and heavy rain. Our driveway has a drain in it and the rain was coming down so hard it formed a mini-lake and I was lucky enough to catch this shot of the rain drops forming none other then, Concentric Circles.

GEAR: - Okay I wanted to find some kind of a gear to photograph but couldn't seem to find anything to fit the category and time was running out so I came up with this idea:

Rain Gear...perfect for those sudden, unexpected rain storms!

GLAZED - I swear that Ashley & I must be long lost sister's since I've read her post and she mentioned "Googling" concentric circles, which I did as well. Then she mentioned that she had originally planned to buy Glazed donuts for the prompt...Guess what?  That was my 1st idea as well!   Instead I came up with this:

Coleen painted this purple ladybug at a pottery birthday party for one of her little school friends. It's certainly glazed and looked pretty cool sitting on one of my flowers.

MARBLE: - Okay I so wanted to photograph the steps inside our courthouse as they are this gorgeous stone marble but alas I procrastinated and the Courthouse was closed today and I still hadn't gotten around to getting anything other then this last shot which I took earlier in the week (just in case I didn't get to the courthouse) think I knew that I wouldn't make it.

This little frog sits in my front flower bed and was a birthday gift from my sister-in-law. It has "Marbles" for eyes and it's body is made up of crushed marbles and cement.

Whew another successful hunt. Don't forget to check in on Ashley's blog and check out the other participants entries.

    You really really really prepared for this hunt, looking up definitions and preparing ahead in case you ran out of time. I LOVE what you did in every way.

  15. Beautiful and fun photos, a good model in the first, very naturally.

  16. i am CERTAIN we all googled the circle thingey, i know i did. your "gear" would have been perfect for that as well!!

    ps....i used the glazed donut, i really need to be more creative!!

  17. I love the rain drops - great find!

  18. Love love the raindrops!!!! Great photos this week.

  19. Oh my- I love the circles from the rain. Beautiful! That was my first thought- but we have not had rain in about 7 months.

  20. Once again, I love your interpretations of the topics! Especially warped-- I may have to lie on the ground now to see if I can still get myself into that position...although I doubt it!

  21. Great interpretations, all of them --especially the ripples for Concentric Circles! That was brilliant. :)

  22. What a fun scavenger hunt! I love all the pictures you took! So unique and so interesting

  23. I love the glazed ladybug! And the concentric circles, using an onion was such a good idea!

  24. Awesome, awesome, AWESOME photos, Ida! I so enjoy these scavenger hunts. I like to scroll down slowly, read what you have to say about your hunt, and then be surprised by the photo. Loved them all! The frog was a fabulous and fun finish!

  25. Your rain shot was the best one for concentric circles.
