Scavenger Hunt Sunday - September 9, 2012

Hello, I hope you have all had a great week.  The 1st week of School is official in the books now and so far Coleen is enjoying the start of 2nd grade.

Now it's time to join me on a little "hunt." -  A Scavenger Hunt to be exact.

title="Scavenger Hunt Sunday with Ashley Sisk"

 Ashley, Ramblings and Photo's host this fun event every Sunday.  Participants are given 5 Prompts to find during the week and photograph them post on their blogs and post a link back on Ashley's blog.  It's loads of fun and can sometimes be challenging which is 1/2 the fun.

This weeks prompts were:  Monochromatic, Starts with the Letter...., Upside Down,
Hair and Soft.

Let's get started:

Click to Enlarge all photos.

Some pears I bought at a local farmers market.  They weren't quite ripe when I bought them so they sat in a bowl near the kitchen window for most of a week until they were riped enough to eat and oh they were Yummy!

Starts with the letter....
"D" for Dinosaur!

Coleen is really into Dinosaurs right now and when we found out the the Gem and Mineral show had a display with real fossilized Dinosaur Eggs I knew we just had to go and check it out. 
The photos in the collage are: Velociraptor Eggs, A Dinosaur Painting on some rock, Dinosaur Poop, Seriously, I kid you not!  Lastly Coleen in front of a T-Rex Model head.  She had a blast.

We discovered this spider in my rose bed one night and captured it to take photos (which have yet to appear on my blog).
We moved her to another plant in the front of our house and then she climbed up to the top of the house where she spun a web and stayed for over a week.  Last night she moved all the way around our house to the Recycle Bin where this picture was taken this morning.  We've since moved her back to the front of the house and she's now spinning a web on our living room window.  In case you are wondering this Spider is known by the name,  "Cat-faced Orb Weaver." - You'll be seeing more photo's of her in the coming weeks.  She's very fascinating to watch.

Hey it's hair, albeit "Synthetic" hair but hair none the less. This is the same doll featured in the Alligator attack from last weeks Scavenger Hunt!

Couldn't decide which shot I liked better for the last prompt so you get both!

Some Dandelion Seeds I happened to spot in the grass while sitting outside this morning.  They are soft enough that even the gentlest breeze will cause them to float away.

Our cat, Snickers fur is super soft.  It's like touching Velvet.

That's it for this week.  I hope you've enjoyed being on the hunt with me and don't forget to pop over to Ashley's blog and browse through the other participants entries.

Have a GREAT week. 


  1. Your photos look great. That spider is awesome.

  2. Awesome photos even though I hate spiders.

  3. Love the pears, they look so yummy - maybe I'll pick some up for this week!

  4. These are great! I like how you gave them all the Polaroid frame. Dinosaur is my favorite but your cat sure looks cuddly too!

  5. Great choice for the letter V. That was a super cute collage.

  6. Your "upside down" is so detailed it makes me want to to yell "SPIDER!!!!!!" and run :) Such a great capture.

  7. eeewww, that spider. But it sure it a great shot. :) And I really love your "soft" shot. Dandelion seeds are so much fun.

  8. Great interpretations of the prompts! I especially like the dinosaur collage and the spider! :)

  9. These are great. That spider shot is amazing.

  10. I love the Polaroid style frames you added to the photos! Very nice! The spider shot is fantastic! Well done!

  11. Love both soft shots. The hair is funny, and I really like the pears. Have a great week!

  12. Wow! These are fabulous! The pears were perfect for monochromatic and that spider certainly was upside down. I am surprised you followed him/her around for a week! I can see why you had trouble deciding between the "hairs" - both were so different yet each was a very creative shot for the prompt. I loved the whole presentation! Great job!


  13. Love your monochromatic shot! It is lovely.

    Your spider shot gave me the shivers! I am not a big fan of creepy crawlies.

  14. These are all so great, Ida. And, that spider is an amazing find!

  15. Love the polaroid layout you did! The apples are my favorite!

  16. I like the way you presented your photos, and what a creepy upside down shot that is...perfect for the prompt. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  17. I love your set!!! The spider is awesome and of COURSE I enjoyed your Snickers. We named ours Snickers because, "Snickers always satisfies." :)

  18. I like the presentation! Great photos!

  19. Wow, really fantastic shots this week! And I love the Poloroid theme ;)

    That first shot is my fave, but they are all great.


  20. what a sensual feast Ida. you've managed to turn a spider into a marvel for me (they usually creep me out). love the shot of the pears, but really I like them all. the collage of "D" is wonderful. I chopped up the pears and tomato into a salsa, adding lime, coconut aminos, cilantro, and jalpeno. don't you just love the bounty of the season? happy week to you Ida.

  21. I love how you did the polaroid look with this week's images!! That spider shot is awesome!! I found one very similar in color, but it was sitting on a white lacey flower and just didn't show up like yours does!

  22. That is a pretty amazing spider!

  23. A fun scavenger hunt of photos, I think my favourite is the dandelion seed heads.

  24. Glad to see that your doll survived last week's attack....and her hair is still perfect! Oh, the life of a toy :)

  25. Absolutely fantastic collection! I gasped out loud when I saw your spider. The details are so sharp... I love it!!

  26. Great job- the detail on that spider is fabulous!
