Scavenger Hunt Sunday - Sept. 30, 2012

Hi! - What a busy week it's been.  I had most of the hunt items found by Friday but had to go out today to complete my set.
I hope you enjoy my interpretations of the prompts. 

This weeks Scavenger Hunt Sunday prompts were:  Yellow, Getting Ready, Bright, Teeny Tiny and Connections.



Before I get started I wanted to say that my Granddaughter, Coleen
ask me today if she could take pictures and do the Scavenger Hunt too.
She has her own blog (Creative Coleen and her Imagination) so please stop
by and check out her pictures.  She took them all herself.  I helped a little with uploading them to her blog and helping put the frames on her photos. She picked out all the colors and fonts and did all her own typing as well.

                                                                                                         YELLOW:

The neighbors behind my mom have some Sunflowers that hang over her back fence.  I've been enjoying photographing them this summer.  This one is slight worn out from the dry weather we've had but still quite lovely.

                                                                                   GETTING READY:

This is my mom getting ready to throw her bowling ball during league bowling this past Tuesday.  My mom hates having her picture taken so I snuck this one in without her knowing it.  She was mortified that I planned to post it on my blog.  I told her know one will recognize her because you can't see her face!  She bowled a "strike" on this ball by the way.

                                                                                                       BRIGHT:



Some of my many bottles of bright, colorful glitter.  I love how they sparkle, don't you?

                                                                                                           TEENY TINY:

Coleen and I went to Rook's Park today to do a photo/nature walk.  I spotted some teeny tiny blackberries on the vines and snapped this picture of them before Coleen picked them and ate them.  She really enjoyed finding the berries and eating them.

                                                                                                         CONNECTIONS:

This prompt can be interpretated in many different ways.  I chose to use some quote about Connection/s and added them to appropriate photo's.  I have two pictures for this prompt because I liked both of them.  Both photo's have had "textures" added to them.
The textures were Free from Bonnie at Pixel Dust Photo art.


I have to confess that this is actually 2 separate photo's that have been overlayed to create one photo.  See smaller photo's below:

The geese seemed a little plain by themselves so I added the clouds and tree shot to jazz it up a little.























Finally my last Connections shot was taken at the school carnival this week.  Coleen had just dunked her teacher in the dunk tank and was having a wonderful laugh over it. 

Don't forget to stop by Ashley's blog and check out the other participants.

  8. I love how sharp your Teeny Tiny shot is... and just look at those bottles of glitter! I used to have some when I used to face-paint my kids more often than I do now (almost never!). Now I don't even know where my bottles of glitter are.
