Another photo scavenger hunt!

Well, here I go again with yet another photo scavenger hunt! 
I tell you, these are very addicting! 
This week was a little "tricky" for me.
Here are the items:

1. Wish/Dream
2. Clean
3. Currency
4. Pair
5. Square

...and my interpretations 

Wish/Dream
It would be a dream come true for me to live in this fabulous city some day!
(If you're listening...I found this goofy song by Perry Como called Seattle...I've never heard it before, have you?)

Clean
I've had this old Purex bottle for a while now.  It sits in my laundry room,  and since I love photographing some of the vintage items I have anyway, it was the perfect time to do so. 

Currency
Wow, how interesting is a dollar bill?  Well, I never thought so until I took a macro of it.
I love the detail of the bill and went with a vintage sepia tone for color. 

Pair
So, what did you expect a girl from Vegas to choose for pair?  I think living in this city all my life has affected my brain. 

Square
I just couldn't come up with anything more interesting than the glass block in my bathroom.  I tweaked the colors a bit to make it seem more interesting. 

Thank You to Ashley Sisk
for another fun Scavenger Hunt!



Also, I'd like to send out another BIG THANK YOU to all of my followers!
I love chatting with you and making new friends.
I enjoy reading blogs so much and could sit at the computer all day,  but then I see the laundry and well...you get the picture
it won't go away on it's own, so I have to pull myself away from the computer and do my chores whether I like it or not!

Here's hoping you have all of your chores done for the weekend!

See you soon!

Becca

Great photos! But I have to say that your cat photo is my favorite. I love it when they yawn.

I love the glass squares, whatever you did in the processing made them very interesting! Great job on the dollar bill too!

Catherine said...

Hmmm... if only our kitties had thumbs and then we could teach them to put in a load of laundry for us. :)

Happy Sunday Becca!

Oh I'm soooo glad I joined the scavenger hunt-and now I can follow your beautiful blog. I'm at Wow. Is just "wow" ok?
Currency was my fav or the posted, but you made it awfully hard to choose. And no I never have heard the Seattle song.
Happy day to you.

Hi Becca,

I love your photo choices!

The Seattle song was a theme song for an old t.v. show, if I remember right.

I think it was about a bunch of brothers and one was named Jeremy (there were a lot of little baby boys named Jeremy after that!). I might not be remembering everything right but you have inspired me to look it up.

I haven't been to Seattle for a long time. We keep meaning to go each year, because my husband has spent a lot of time there and will be a great tour guide.

Have a wonderful week!

Stephani said...

These photos are terrific! Love your blog. I tried to participate in the hunt again this week, but like last week I only got 4 of the 5 pictures done and thought I'd better not post just part of a hunt! ~ Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Becky Shander said...

Terrific photos...I especially love the close-up view of the dollar bill.

SarahinSC said...

My dream is to be in Seattle too. I lived there for three years and LOVED every minute of it!

Katy Noelle said...

Oh, Becca, what a brilliant set of photos - just absolutely beautiful! You have such a great style - pizazz - character - some kind of word like that. I'm so glad that someone else struggles between blogging and doing the laundry. Your cat got a hearty guffaw out of me!!

Love, Katy
