Scavenger Hunt Sunday ~ January 20, 2013



 
It's been a busy week! Full of photography, decluttering, cleaning, and the routine stuff!  Of course, the most enjoyable time, was the time with my camera in hand. I'm joining once again with Ashley Sisk's Scavenger Hunt Sunday.  I had to do a little creative thinking to find them all!

Our prompts this week were:
basket
park
auto
recycle
people watching

 
basket
This tiny basket is a little over one inch tall. It's woven with pine needles.


park
I took this photo at "Fun Land" in the park. I remember going there as a teenager with Mr. H although I doubt we rode many rides, he was not particularly fond of them. My favorite ride will always be the Carousel. I wonder how many children have ridden this prancing stallion.

 
 
 Auto
How many drivers do you need for this auto?

 
 recycle
I love to find ways to recycle vintage linens. I found an antique quilt at a flea market that was tattered in many places. I brought it home and made pillows out it. I also found a dresser scarf that was beyond repair, but had this lovely crocheted border. I removed the border and used it on this pillow.
 
 
People Watching
This was the most difficult prompt for me. I don't take pictures of people other than family.  I really did try to go people watching and take some photos, but they were awful!  I'm just not brave enough.  I decided to share a picture of my Dad. He loves people watching!

I've enjoyed my week.
I hope you have too! 
May next week be extra special for you!

after all,
is to live it
 to taste experience to the utmost,
to reach out eagerly and without fear
for newer and richer experiences.

  4. Fun set Cathy. You made me laugh out loud on that auto shot-yes, 4 little drivers needed. Blueberry basket is very dear, and if your Dad likes to people watch, it totally fits the prompt.

    I did manage to get sneak one in at a park though. I think the shot of your dad is marvelous!

  9. Cathy - you have certainly lived your photographic life this week following that quote - "reaching out for new experiences". Love that tiny basket, filled with berries- waiting for a wandering fairy, no doubt.
