Scavenger Hunt Sunday - May 5, 2013

It's time to join in on the fun of Scavenger Hunt Sunday hosted by the lovely and talented Ashley Sisk (Ramblings and Photos).  Each week you get a list of 5 "prompts" to look for and photograph through out the week.  This weeks prompts were:

Background, Spotted or Dots, Weather, Motion and Sweet.

I was wondering what I would find for some of the prompts and found them in unexpected places and events that I attended with Coleen this week.
Click to enlarge photo's.

BACKGROUND:  Now this is a "loose" interpretation of this prompt but I like it.

The shade from our back fence provided just the right "background" to capture the sunlight on this dandelion and make it shine. 

SPOTTED or DOTS:   I was worried about this prompt until  I took Coleen to an art exhibit this morning.  She had a piece of artwork from school at the exhibit and when we got there we discovered that they had some arts & crafts for the kids to do while they were browsing around.  One was called,  "Dot Walla Walla" and featured a table with a bunch of cut out circles of patterned paper that the kids could glue together and then place on these long white cloth panels hanging from the wall.  This is a portion of one of those panels.

WEATHER:  After we left the art exhibit we went to several places to buy flowers.  The "weather" was perfect for buying and planting.

MOTION:  Friday the kids at Coleen's school put on a Cinco deMayo program and she was in one of the dances that the kids performed.  I hadn't planned on attending but was glad that I did.  The dances were great and I was able to capture some fun motion shots. You get 2 for this prompt.

These were the 1st graders doing the Fisherman's Dance.  I loved how the little girls were waving their dresses about.

I also caught Coleen in her dance and was excited to spot that I'd captured her just as her feet came off the floor in a little jump portion of the dance.

SWEET:  This one will surprise you.  I had planned to show a shot of the cupcake that I bought at the Art Exhibit this morning but then spotted something else on our walk back to the car.

It's a sign advertising our Walla Walla "Sweet" Onions and here they serve Sweet Onion Sausage Sandwiches and other items featuring the famous onions.  Oh my they are tasty & awesome on hamburgers too.  Check out their website : .

That's it for this weeks hunt.  Be sure to check out the other participants by visiting Ashley's blog. - Up next week: Perspective, Golden, Bloom, Dark, Local


  1. Your weather and motion are very good and beautiful photos !!! So sunny. It's raining in Finland :)

  2. Coleen is so cute in her dance costume. Your dandelion shot is perfect.

  3. Love those motion pictures! The walla walla onion shot is super great!

  4. "Background" may be a loose interpretation of the prompt, but it is my favorite. I'm a sucker for contrast and a blur in the background. Very nicely done.

    What a great series all around though!
    Happy week!
