I have been looking at the photos over at Ramblings and Photos and the other Scavenger Hunt Sunday links for a few months. I feel a little out of my league to join in, but I love hunts. I did this once before, but I didn't have time to take all the pictures that week. This time I was determined to follow the rules. It was challenging to come up with ideas and I didn't quite get exactly the shot I wanted, but it was a GREAT way to force myself to experiment and use my camera. I also forced myself to use only manual mode and no flash--truly an accomplishment for me. I really had a ton of fun. So without further adieu...
I do not have a camera phone. I do not even have a cell phone. However, we do have a lot of cameras, so I thought having my son use a camera as a phone would fit into the spirit of the hunt. It was a little difficult because he wanted to have the camera be flat--he'd never seen an old-fashioned phone with actual curve to it. I don't know what his friend is telling him, but it looks intense.
I wanted to include my new camera in the line-up, so I used a mirror. It didn't come out quite as I envisioned it, but I had fun experimenting with angles and my manual settings.
I couldn't get any good pictures of shoes so I decided to just inundate you with shoes. I had to use a PW Vintage to hide the dirt and scuff marks on our uninspiring shoe collection.
This baby rocking chair was given to me by my Grandma for my 1st birthday--30 some years ago. I never got a really stand-out, unique shot of it, but I had fun trying.
I started out with the imperfection of a broken chain and ended up with the imperfections of a broken chain, dusty dresser, crooked angel, blown out details, and overused color retouch in a B/W.
