Scavenger Hunt : May 29

I am so excited to finally get off of my lazy rear and get some shots together to join in Sunday Scavenger Hunt.  I had so much fun with this. 

1. Classic Still Life

Grabbed the few apples we had and took some shots before the kids saw me with them.  There are now no apples in my house.

 

2. Self-Portrait

I was the most nervous about this one, but I really had fun.

 

3. On The Floor

Sleeping Ranger

We have a brand spanking new puppy in the house.  Meet Ranger. Smile

 

4. Lines

Some railroad tracks that extend further than I can see.  I did a high grain effect and some tweaks to make it look vintage.  It almost has a tilt shift look to it.

 

5. Fresh

Nothing like fresh rain.  Here are some green leaf lettuce we planted so we can have fresh salad whenever we want.

 

I really did have a lot of fun doing this.  I am going to try to participate more often.  The inspiration that these kind of challenges bring has really helped me improve.  I know I have a long way to go, but I am so happy to take that journey.

Join in or see others.

  3. What a great smile and expression! I made my husband go get fruit for my still life--it doesn't stay in the house for long with 3 kids! The lines shot is my favorite.
