Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Hi bloggers!  I'm playing along again with Ashley Sisk's Scavenger Hunt Sunday, and the items this week are as follows: 

1. My Town
2. Something Vintage
3. Tilt-Shift Photography
4. Dress Up
5. Chocolate 

Here are my interpretations for the 5, hope you enjoy! 

1. My Town

For those of you that haven't already figured out by reading my blog, "my town" is Las Vegas, but I'm hoping that someday...soon,  "my town" will be Seattle!

2. Something Vintage
This was difficult to choose,  because I LOVE Vintage!  Some of my favorite vintage things are sewing notions like these vintage bobbins and perfect Mason Ball jars. 

3. Tilt-Shift Photography
Ashley, this was fun!  I had never heard of "tilt shift photography", but after watching a tutorial on how to do this in Photoshop, this is what I came up with. 
I took this photo while at a Seahawks football game last year.  I edited this in Photoshop CS3 to give it this "model" apperance/tilt-shift photography.  Thanks Ashley, this was fun to learn! 

4. Dress Up

I know that this category was probably supposed to be for Halloween Costumes, but I wasn't anywhere where I could photograph someone in a costume and since I didn't have children of my own, this was all I could come up with.  Both photos were taken with my camera, and I thought the first one kind of went with the "my town" too.  I am the second one from the right.  This was a part time, weekend gig I used to have at Caesars Palace.  The second photo was from a shoot that we did for a local theatre group production of Oklahoma!  I played the role of Gertie Cummings. So when I think of "dress up" I think of the shows/theatre I've been in. 

5. Chocolate
For me, chocolate isn't just for Halloween, but everyday of the year!  This is the lid from a vintage can of powdered Ghirardelli Chocolate mix. 

Thanks for dropping by and don't forget to hop on over to Ashley's blog to see all of the other Scavenger Hunt enteries! 


Hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween!  See you in a couple of days!

Wow, great job! I don't even know what to say because I want to say something about each and every one of them. I LOVE your interpretation of 'my town,' it's a great composition and a creative idea! I also love your Ghirardelli shot. That could be in an advertisement, seriously. Great photos!

What a creative town shot! I love the vintage sewing bobbins, too. The tin lid and chocolate chip photo would look great in a chocolate lover’s kitchen.

LOVE these! They are all great. My absolute favorite is vintage. It's so soft and the composition is wonderful. I could totally see that as a framed print on someone's wall. :)
