This week for Scavenger Hunt Sunday I didn't have as much time to take all new photos, so I had to resort to my photo archives for a couple. Oops! I hope you enjoy them anyway.
This weeks items are as follows:
1. Side Lighting
3. Faces formed in Nature
Here are my photo interpretations
This was my favorite, and most challenging of the five.
I thought about this, but didn't come up with anything until Saturday afternoon. I opened the kitchen shade to do some dishes and saw how things were lighting up, so I grabbed this vase and started moving it around and changing lenses to see what worked best. I was pretty happy with my results and learned a thing or two while I was at it!
I had the hardest time trying to photograph my ceramic jack-o-lantern! I took it outside and put it on the grass (fake grass) and threw some leaves around it, but it just wasn't what I wanted, so I opened it up in Photoshop and started playing with textures and this is what I came up with.
Faces formed in nature
As soon as I saw this item I knew I wanted to photograph a pansy! I plant these every fall for color throughout the cold season. I just love their little faces!
Here are a couple other photos from my garden.
Maui, June 2006, the day after my wedding on the beach. We sat with our cocktails snapping photo after photo until it was too dark and we were too tipsy!
Ok, actually I DID take this shot yesterday. It was in the afternoon, sunny, and about 85 degrees out, but I just had to get the fireplace in the background. I was sweating it out with the hot tea, and the fireplace on! Funny what one will do to get a good shot! LOL
Finally, it doesn't seem to matter what the temperature is outside, the kitties always seem to want to snuggle and be "warm" where ever they can find a spot!
