A Song and a Hunt - July 28, 2013

Linking up again this week with Kathy (You'll Shoot Your Eye Out) for Song-ography This weeks song was:  Here Come The Sun by George Harrison and Friends.   

Lot's of different ways to get creative with this song and photography.  I'm not sure I achieved what I was hoping for but we'll see what you think.

I think this has a bit of a romantic feeling to it. 




Now let's pop on over to Ashley's blog, (Ramblings and Photos) for this weeks Scavenger Hunt Sunday.
 The prompts this week were:
Cool Colors, Leaves, Iced Beverage, Cooling Off & Raw.


COOL COLORS:
Morning Glory and some little weed that I don't know the name of.  They were such soft cool colors.

LEAVES:

Spotted these very large leaves growing out from a fence by a little creek on a short afternoon walk today.

ICED BEVERAGE:  Found this recipe for a "mocktail" - They called it a Shirley Temple but I'm thinking they had to be mixed up a bit as I've never heard of a Shirley Temple fixed this way.  I wish I could have gotten a better picture but the lighting in our house sucks.
Recipe can be found here:


COOLING OFF:  - I got so lucky with this photo today.  I was watering the lawn and had just put out the peanuts for the squirrels when this little guy decided it was time to "cool off" and head for a drink.


RAW:  Couldn't decide between veggies or fruit...went with fruit.

Raw Nectarines dressed up with some Cool Whip.  Yum!

  7. Great hunt. I love the little squirrel. Regarding lighting, try moving things to a different location. Perhaps nearer a window. Or, move a lamp closer to you.

  14. Long, cold, lonely winter is about what the temps feel like in Michigan today. Atleast for July it does. I'm not sure we'll even break out of the 60s today!
    Lovely interpretation!
