SHS and Songography (All Kinds of Kinds) edition. - November 10, 2013


Welcome!  -  Since this post isn't going to be super photo heavy today I'm combining Scavenger Hunt Sunday and Songography into one blog post.

Kathy (You'll Shoot Your Eye Out) hosts the
SONGOGRAPHY meme each week.  The object is to listen to the chosen song and then do a photograph depicting your interpretation of the song.  -  This weeks song was:
All Kinds of Kinds by Miranda Lambert.

Again I'm not a big fan of country music so I was not familiar with the song at all.  I did listen though and I've got to say the lyrics are rather weird but like the song implies...it takes all kinds of kinds to make up the world.

I had thought about going downtown and just photographing the tourists walking by because there certainly are all kinds of kinds when they are in town.  I didn't though because I would have felt rather weird taking pictures of strangers and trying not to be obvious about it. 

Instead Coleen and I stopped by an Antique/2nd hand store and I took photo's of various people (not real ones, except for one) through out the store.  I've combined them here in a collage.

Yes the world would be a very dull and boring place if we were all the same.

  Ashley (Ramblings and Photos) hosts,
SCAVENGER HUNT SUNDAY where each week you get 5 prompts that you take photographs of through the week and then post.  Lots of fun.

This weeks prompts were:  Table, I Collect, Music, Yes! and Someone I Miss.

TABLE:  Goodness I certainly didn't want to photograph our table, it's usually cluttered with stuff until we clear it off to eat.  Besides it's nothing all that interesting either.  So while at the antique store today I spotted a little coffee table that I like and here is the result.


I COLLECT:  Funny story about this one.  I collect Frog and Cat figurines (not so much anymore though as there is only so much room to display them) but I went to get some of my frog figurines that were packed away and when I opened the box that was marked, Small Frogs I found that instead of the frogs they were actually cat figurines!  I tried getting pictures of them but hate the lighting in our living room.  So I took one outside and while taking a picture one of our real cats pulled the front door open and I snapped his photo.  Because let's face it when you have 6 cats you may as well just say you, "Collect Cats.!"

MUSIC:  Saw some of the music sitting on my hubby's guitar stand and thought it looked cool.


YES! - Stopped at a bakery on the way to the antique store and heard this calling out my name.  I said, "Yes!"


SOMEONE I MISS - This was a hard one because I thought how can I do a picture of someone that I miss if they aren't around to take a photo of.  I didn't want to do a picture of a picture so instead I did a picture of a place that reminds me of the person.  This is Bennington Lake where my dad spent many an afternoon fishing when he was alive.  Every time I visit I am reminded of him and even though he's been gone nearly 16 years I still miss him very much.




“Love is stronger than death even though it can't stop death from happening, but no matter how hard death tries it can't separate people from love. It can't take away our memories either. In the end, life is stronger than death.”
 
Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week and don't forget to stop by Kathy and Ashley's blogs and check out the other participants.

  21. Loved your interpretations, especially your cat figurine photo shoot interrupted by the cat! ;) Lovely photo you chose for "Someone I miss." Beautiful, and beautiful quote. My mom died when my oldest (now 16) was 9 mos. old...I photographed a doll that had been hers.

  25. Hi, Ida! I'm on the run this morning but wanted to see your latest photos. Just had to stop here and say, once again, how I love these scavenger hunts. That table is so cute! Would look fabulous restored. Also, I love how you photographed one of your Dad's favorite spots for the last prompt. That was well thought out and a beautiful photo. The cat is a prize winner in my eyes! That was serendipity that your kitty popped its head out at that moment. The absolute perfect photo for the prompt. LOVE it!
