Scavenger Hunt: 6/12

So I am starting off this week’s challenge with a dud.  I had the hardest time with long exposure.  The name for it should have just been “Really blurry image”.  Then I would have nailed it.  But once again I had a ton of fun finding things to take pictures of for each of the prompts.

Long Exposure


Yeah, it’s crap.  But what do you expect when you give a 4 year old a sparkler?  Especially when it is his first time.

This might be kind of a copout photo, but this toy has so many shapes in it and I loved the way the shadow created even more when I went to photograph it.




Can you spot the bird’s nest in this mass of green?  I was on my “me and my camera” time walk and was snapping away and almost didn’t even see such a wonderful little treasure tucked away.




Cole begged me for a pineapple.  My kids love fruits and vegetables.  I bought it and sure enough their aren’t really eating it.  Oh well, at least I got to take some shots of it before I cut it up.


Childhood Memory

music box gears

This is the mechanism for the music box I have had since I was about 4 years old.  It still works.  I thought the inside was much more of an interesting picture than the outside.


Join in the fun over at Ramblings and Photos for Scavenger Hunt Sunday.


  1. All so great!! I love your long exposure!! Fruit is awesome & I really like your take on childhood memory :)

  2. I feel you on the long exposure one, still not sure what to do.
    But you have some great entries, your pineapple looks yummy, childhood memories is gorgeous.

  3. I wouldn't call the long exposure a dud at all--wait 'til you see mine! Those last two shots are just beautiful! We love grilled pineapple with a little icecream--yum!

  4. That pineapple shot is AWESOME! I hear ya on the long exposure issue... I also posted blurry sparkler shots :D

  5. I really like the perspective of your pineapple shot! I think this would look awesome framed up in a kitchen!

  6. LOVE the pineapple shot! And your shapes one too :D

  7. I love the pineapple shot! If your kids won't eat it fresh, you could cut it up in chunks and make a sweet-and-sour (chicken or pork) dish with it, with green and red peppers. :)

  8. Love the inside of the music box and the pineapple photo is awesome! I didn't see the nest until I read the caption. Cool find!

  9. These are all great! I like the sparkler shot! The blur makes it fun. Okay, and the shape shot.....amazing!! The shadow just grabbed me. Well done again.

  10. love the fruit and childhood memory! great interpretation!

  11. I LOVE the shapes photo - the color, the shadow, I love it!

  12. Your shapes photo is fantastic! And I love the fruit shot!

  13. That pineapple is beautiful- my favorite fruit for sure! I was always mesmerized by music boxes & how they worked when I was a kid. What a lovely shot of it

  14. What a previous childhood memory!

  15. It was so nice meeting you yesterday! I look forward to following your blog! :)

  16. I think you did a nice job with the hunt. I especially like your childhood memory shot.

  17. I love the green (of course!) and it makes me wonder what type of bird made that nest. Those are some pretty serious sticks and twigs. No whimpy bird made that one. I also love the vintage look of your music box. Very cool. You mentioning your walk with your camera time makes me think of my day yesterday. I was at an outdoor 'thing' with different outdoor sessions and one of the sessions was outdoor photography. They let us go for an hour w our cameras and just shoot pictures. FUN! (another session was shooting guns - that was fun too!) :)

  18. Great shots! I love the perspective of your fruit shot! Nicely done...

  19. Nice pictures, especially the one of the nest tucked back behind the leaves.

  20. Fun shape photo, like the shadow.

  21. Love that pineapple.. seriously.. love it!

  22. I didn't get to participate in the scavenger hunt but I love blog hoppin' just to see what people submitted. I really learn from others pictures! Love your pineapple and shapes shot! Very cool!

  23. Ok, my friend, quit being so hard on yourself! Enough with the putdowns, you take beautiful pics!!!

    Sorry, lecture over ;-) LOVE the pineapple shot! In the shapes shot, it's cool how you can see shapes in the shadow too. The music box, what a nice keepsake!

  24. I'm pretty sure I have one of those music boxes stashed away somewhere... so nostalgic ;-)

  25. LOVE your shot of the pineapple!! Great job :)
