Scavenger Hunt Sunday 10-28-2012



Welcome back, or if you are new to my blog, Welcome! I can't believe how quickly time passes. Its already been a week since my last Scavenger Hunt post, and also 2 months today that I lost my best friend Maddux. It seems like just yesterday in so many ways, then again, it seems like forever since I have seen his face, and kissed that big fat squishy muzzle. I still miss him so...I love you buddy.

Anyway, I dont want to be depressing, nor do I want to get depressed, so on with my post. This week the weather was very uncooperative. My time out in nature, or with my camera at all, was short and sweet. I was able to have an hour here or an hour there, but due to no sun, and lots of rain, it was very limited. I had hopes for a bright sunny day with low wind, but that just didnt happen. So, I had to make due with what I was given.

For this week, the prompts were a bit of a challenge for me. Not because of subject matter, but because of me being limited on my out of the house time. Then you add in that I am basically a nature photographer, and couldnt find much in nature to use for my shots! No nature = challenging for me. They are as follows:

PATTERN(S)
MACHINE
SIGNS OR LOGOS
ROCKS OR STONES (darn, too bad I used my rock shot for stacked last week)
SPARKLE

And, here are my shots for these prompts:

PATTERN
I liked how the repeating pattern of the bridge was reflected in the water as well.

MACHINE
No idea what it is, but I loved the blades on it! Some kind of farming machine I assume.

SIGNS OR LOGOS
I had to go with this one, because its not often I see my name spelled correctly on anything, let alone a sign!

ROCKS OR STONES
Came across this quarry wall while out for a drive.

SPARKLE
Is it obvious why I chose this shot for sparkle? Kind of blinding me right now :)

Awesome pics and how cool is that sign with your name. Don't think I have ever seen my name as a street sign.

Thanks for sharing.

Really nice group of shots! Neat pattern in bridge, fantastic machine,and what better sign could you find! And, I always marvel and look with awe at giant formations of rock like in your pix.

Great shots! Love the machine and patterns. I hear you about the weather...so irritating! Be strong, be happy.

Absolutely Wonderful job with the prompts. I had the same problem...lots of rain, dreary skies. I chose to do a few inside shots.

Love the pretty Patterns of the bridge shot.
Machine is really interesting. I have one on mine that I have no clue what it is either.
Signs - How fun to spot your name on a street sign.
Rocks/Stones - This is really cool. I thought about you last week when you used your Rock shot for stacked but this one is just as nice.
Sparkle - Lovely.

Great job. These are wonderful. I really like "sparkle" Very pretty, that one. :)

The bridge shot is just perfect and fits the bill for pattern very nicely. Great group.

i love each and every one of your shots. i think, oh, this one's my favorite, and then i would see the next one. each has it's own unique qualities, and i think they all fit perfectly in with the prompts you were given. you're such a talented photographer!!!

What a nice pictures!!! I like each of them. I do take pictures too, but I don't reach your nature-pictures level. The farming machine is to turn the hay so other parts can dry. Maybe you can find time to look at my blog for art (most photos) lieskoster.blogspot.com and my craftblog huisvlijtigliesje.blogspot.com . I will join your blog now
