Scavenger Hunt Sunday - August 19, 2012

To View Photo Art Friday click on link.


Hi! - Hope you have had a great week.  Mine started out fairly quiet and normal and then things just sort of went down hill.  I ended up catching a cold (courtesy of Coleen) and have spent the last couple of days feeling miserable.  At any rate I wasn't able to get out much to photograph things for this weeks Scavenger Hunt but I did go on a "hunt" through my archived photo's to meet some of the prompts.  Perhaps next week I'll do better with current photos.

This weeks prompts:  Forest, Morning Light, Touch, Newspaper, and Coffee or Tea.

This is the view from my oldest brother's mountain property.  It was taken in 2010 which was just a year or two after a major fire went through much of that area.  You can see some of the burned trees if you look closely in the background. 

Okay I will admit this next prompt was a tough one for me.  Why?....Well you see I am so NOT a morning person so taking pictures of sunrises would be out of the question for me.  I went through my photo's and found one that was taken at 8:15 am which to me qualifies as Morning!


This particular morning the sun was shining on the clouds and everything seemed so fresh and new.

This week Coleen attended a 2 day Cheerleading Camp put on by the Parks and Recreation Department.  I discovered a wonderful mosaic mural inside the school where the camp was held.  This next shot is a close-up portion of part of the mosaic.  It was so pretty that I took a bunch of pictures.  Up close you really wanted to "touch" the mosaic and feel all the little bumps from the pieces of marble and glass.





Around our house Newspaper becomes a "toy" for the cats to play in.  I like to pack my holiday decorations in newspaper and was repacking them up on this particular day when, Captain Cuddles decided it was time to take a romp in them.  I believe he has one of his little cat toys there as well. 

Finally the only other current photo I took this week.

While I'm mainly a Coffee drinker I also enjoy a good cup of tea now and then.  This however is coffee with French Vanilla creamers. - What I really enjoy is finding mugs that I like in which to sip my beverage of choice.  This is one of several cat themed mugs that I have.  I find it very humorous and cute.

















So that's it for this weeks hunt.  Please pop on over to Ashley's blog, Rambling and Photos and join in on the other participants hunts as well.
