Scavenger Hunt Sunday - October 19, 2014

Welcome.  I hope you've all had a great week.  Let's finish it up by having a great hunt with Ashley (Ramblings and Photos) for SCAVENGER HUNT SUNDAY.

This weeks prompts were:  Book, Mail, Star, Saturated, and Wall.


I knew I didn't want just any shot of a book for this prompt so I drove the 17 miles needed to snap this little book reading frog at the Public Libray in Milton-Freewater, OR.  Isn't she cute.


Our cat, Snickers provied the perfect "mail" shot the other day when she hopped inside this box that was laying on the floor.  Would you like to receive this in a package?  (If you hate cats feel free to not answer).

STAR:  -  I think he pretty much was a "Star."  -  Elvis lives on.

This mural is actually pained on a stone wall so I could have used it for both prompts. 

Saturated:  So I looked this up to make sure I had the right idea.

sat•u•rat•ed (ˈsætʃ əˌreɪ tɪd)


2. thoroughly soaked with moisture; wet.
3. (of colors) of maximum chroma or purity; free from admixture of white.
So I'm actually sharing photo's for both definitions:
The fountain on Whitman campus is certainly "saturated" with moisture and overflowing.
I'd say these Oak leaves are "saturated" with color, wouldn't you?
WALL:  Here again you'll be getting a bonus photo.
This stone wall is a few blocks away from our house but I just love it.  It makes a great backdrop for taking photos and I like the design of it too.
So remember the Elvis wall above....this is also painted on a section of that wall along with another picture of Elvis which I didn't post this time.
So that's it for my part of the hunt.  Be sure to check out Ashley's blog and the other participants.  If you want to join in next week here are the prompts:
1. Paint
2. Pumpkin
3. Family
4. Looking Cute
5. Photographer’s Choice

  17. I had my comment nearly finished, then it disappeared. If you end up with both, please delete the first one. :) The white wall is great. I like it even without the artwork. My favorite is the frog reading the book. Thank you for driving the extra 17 miles to share the photo with us. As for the mail, I am picturing the poor mailman who would have to deal with a cat in the box if someone were to mail one. :)I
