Scavenger hunt Sunday 10-07-12

Yes! It is true, I have returned to Scavenger Hunt Sunday. I am trying, slowly but surely, to return to the land of the living since losing my best friend Maddux late August. I am better some days, and others, 
not so much. I do find that if I spend some time out in nature, I feel so much better. I have a clearer 
head, a lighter heart, and a better attitude! Seems like deep therapy for my soul. Anyway, here are 
this weeks prompts for the hunt:

Shadow
Keys
Smile
Unedited
Spice

Here are my shots:

SHADOW
I just liked the way the railing shadow looked against the concrete.

KEYS
Ok, I know the prompt was "Keys" I only have 1 worth taking a picture of, and this is it. They just dont make Keys like this anymore. This key fits this lock, and I think they are a piece of art! I set the lock and key on a mirror in front of my patio door. I quite like the effect.

SMILE
It is so hard to get a genuine smile out of my Grand daughter these days. She is always trying to do something crazy or just plain uses her fake for the camera smile. This one was genuine. Her first day of Preschool with her Mommy.

UNEDITED
Straight out of the camera, just the way I like them. Kim and I came across this snake on a nature walk. Not thinking, I laid down on the ground and got within 6" of this garter snake. Mind you, I am terrified of snakes. I seemed to forget all of that to get my shot....lol. At least we got a good laugh after we were done and the snake went after Kim instead of me. I would probably have at least wet myself had it decided to chase me instead of Kim since I was already so close to it. Makes me smile just to think about it!

SPICE
Those fresh Jalepenos added just enough "spice" to my shredded chicken taco. Yummy!

Pets never truly leave us. There's always a little part of them in our hearts.

Welcome back. - I did not know about the loss of your sweet dog. Your story brought tears to my eyes. It is hard to say good-bye but their love and memory live on in our hearts.

Enjoyed your set very much.
Shadow and Keys are really nice.
My favorite is your Unedited.
