Scavenger Hunt Sunday


1. Stairs

This one is from my archives (since there is obviously no snow here in September!). When I saw the prompt was stairs, this was the photo I immediately thought of. Not far from our house there is an amphitheater made of stone, which is a popular place for portraits. I think it looks especially pretty in the winter when the stairs are a bit more distinct from one another.

2. Macro


Yesterday I went on a walk with my son Jonah in search of some small items from nature to put in my apothecary jars. There is a tree near our house that drops acorns every year. The acorns are still green and have not fallen yet, but I plucked a few off the tree to show Jonah. I decided they would make a really cool macro shot.

3. Clouds
Headed to soccer practice I noticed these beautiful clouds. I drove the van up the mountain to get a better shot.

4. Abstract


Yep. For this prompt I took a picture of my iPad with an abstract picture on the screen. They are my favorite type of image to use as backgrounds for the iPad and our iMac.

5. Smile

Nothing beads a first-day of Kindergarten smile! I had to post another picture of Jonah on his first day, even though I already posted a nearly identical picture.

  5. I love all your pictures. I wanted to pick just one or two that I liked, but with each picture that I saw, I said "Oooo, I like that one too!" That stair shot is very cool. I've never seen acorns like that. Perfect for macro, you're right. Great pictures!
