Scavenger Hunt Sunday - May 12, 2013

Welcome to Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Before we get started on the hunt I want to wish all you "Mom's" out there a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!  This week our neighbors cat, Fluffy (she's been featured on my blog several times) had her kittens.  So in honor of Mother's Day I'm sharing a couple of pictures of her and the kittens first.  They aren't the best photo's but they will have to do.  Click to Enlarge:

The Calico one is my favorite.  I wish we could take one of them but with 6 cats of our own adding another one is out of the question.

Now let's get started on the hunt.  This weeks prompts were:

Perspective, Golden, Bloom, Dark and Local.


While I was out at the local Community College getting another of the prompts I happened upon these awesome wind collages and captured this one.  I loved how the picture turned out so I searched for a suitable quote about perspective and added it to the photo.


The Dome (Gymnasium) of the college is indeed quite Golden:

BLOOM:  This was going to be my original shot for Golden but then I went with the college dome instead. 
This is a bloom from what is commonly known as a Golden Chain Tree.  This tree was loaded with blooms just like this and absolutely gorgeous.

My daughter bought some LED garden lights (flowers and dragonflies) and I went out after it got dark and snapped a photo of the dragonfly lights.

LOCAL:  This weekend a local event (39th Annual Hot Air Balloon Stampede) took place.  I snapped this shot of a few of the balloons as they went over our house this morning.

That's it for this weeks hunt.  I hope you have enjoyed your stay.  Be sure to pop on over to Ashley's blog now and check out the other participants.  Have a great day.
