Another Savenger Hunt is on and this week were are looking for;
Pop of Colour
Hidden or Farm
These are what I found
Pop of Colour
I had lots of ideas for this but I like this one because the poppy reminds me of my friend and as the background was dark to begin with I played with making the background black and putting the flower in an oval frame. Both a first for me.
I was really interested in the tutorial suggested for this prompt and went to our local park and took loads of pictures of pergolas, arches, gaps in walls etc and was very pleased with the interpretations and my understanding of ‘crossing thresholds’ then yesterday, I went along to a charity abseil which was in a local disused quarry and took loads more pictures of rocks and wild flowers and interesting ‘things’ and suddenly realised that these brave folk were actually (and some of them) metaphorically, crossing a threshold!
Not perfect but I like it…
This got me stumped. I looked for some tutorials, they all started out by suggesting I wear something flimsy and floaty! Oh dear, that would be too scary for a Sunday. I had something I thought would be ‘OK’ and then I looked at Ashley’s blog post and followed the link to a sensible tutorial! The penny dropped. Invert black & white.
I put a picture into photoshop, changed it to black and white and remembered my shortcut ‘CMD I’ and wow! a kind of x-ray.
I had such fun, faces or hands were the best but as the picture looks so strange I thought I had better use my own face! How brave is that?
A little red double decker bus, once much loved, now discarded, but I know where the box of cars are!
Hidden or Farm
I have two for this because my indecisive nature has taken hold this afternoon.
These bunnies had the biggest barn you ever did see, on the farm I went to visit and there they were hiding in this little shelter!
On a walk yesterday I saw this! how I saw it I have no idea. Those of you that know me will be astonished because you know that I am as blind as a bat! That’s how Scavenger Hunt has gotten hold of me!
Have a look over here for some fabulous finds this week.
And to think I wasn’t going to play this week!
Sunday again! Where is the time going? Time for another Scavenger Hunt. This week we are looking for:
Here are my interpretations for this one.
I love my little pink bird house.
A stolen shot of my sleeping boy.
I tried so many things for this but nothing was right and was about to give up, but I couldn’t, so I went right back to the beginning and started with the word!
I took so many shots of the leaves in my garden this afternoon, they are fascinating, but I really liked the pattern on the Hydrangea leaf.
Faceless Self Portriat
This was just fun!
Thanks Ashley for great prompts again this week.
There are some wonderful interpretations over here at Ashley’s blog.
This weeks Scavenger Hunt Sunday prompts:
From a Flower’s Point of View
I loved this weeks prompts! they needed a bit of thinking about rather than looking for which is so good for me.
Here are my interpretations.
And best of all was that I heard it too. I added an overlay to distract the blur because I was laughing so much and they were moving!
Flower’s mushroom’s Point of View
These little chaps suddenly appeared one morning this week and the following day they were gone!
I had a lot of fun wit this one but this was my favourite.
We went for a flight in a Hot Air Balloon. I took this from inside the basket looking through the foot holes.
This was the first thing that jumped into my mind when I read the prompt, St Paul’s Letters to the Corinthians, but I couldn’t find that phrase written down.
I had my box of craft letters out but they weren’t appealing and then I thought of handwritten letters but they are stashed away somewhere ‘safe’. I continued my search until I found these lurking on the shelves.
The perfume of my Philadelphus is just pure Bliss to me.
Have a look over here at Ashley’s blog to see wonderful interpretations of this weeks prompts.
This week Ashley Sisk ‘s Scavenger Hunt Challenge is looking for:
My take on Long Exposure involved me hand holding the camera on a chilly evening along the sea front! I love the result.
I saw this on Saturday morning in Bristol Do you think it looks like a vertebrae?
Who would believe this scene was at Ashton Court Bristol?
This was my mothers wedding present from my father February 1952. It would have been his birthday today so lots of memories for me.
I loved this weeks challenges, you can see loads of wonderful finds over here at Scavenger Hunt Sunday today if you have a moment.
This week on Scavenger Hunt Sunday we are looking for:
HOT HOT HOT
Front Page of the News
Hot Hot Hot
I was steaming some beautiful young spinach leaves this week and noticed the steam rising and yes the spinach was fabulous!
I struggled with this one. I looked at a couple of websites which were fascinating and I think I have a better understanding of Form but I couldn’t get out to try so I almost had to pass until I came across this blog.
Food again! This time a cabbage, and yes I really love strong dark greens!
Any hints or tips on Form in photography would be greatly appreciated.
Front page of the news
I really couldn’t get my head around this one. My first thought was to post a pictures of my husband who had a birthday this week, that was pretty big news around here.
I couldn’t leave a blank space here and as it was Derby Day over here today I went to my archive and found this.
This old chap would never win a Derby! but he was very nice and let me take his picture. Well, it made me smile!
I couldn’t resist this, There is always washing to be done in our house, somedays I think someone is ‘bringing it in’.
Beads of rain on my beautiful Alchemilla Mollis
There will be wonderful interpretations over here at Ashley’s blog.
