Scavenger Hunt Sunday--March 27th


I do think this is one of the most fun photo challenges.  It forces you to take pictures you wouldn't otherwise take thus growing in your photography and while I love enjoying the skill of other photographers, the creativity in finding the 5 items for the hunt makes it fun for all.  Which is great for me.  Now it does take a little more time, but that...well.

I thought the "Things that make you go 'hmmmm'" would be the hardest one to find, but I forgot I had three children.  They make me go 'hmmmm' all of the time.

This is a salt crystal growth (didn't know that the first time around):
It is a pudding and a sandwich, not a pudding sandwich, for $4.02.  Very glad he clarified.

He was told to pick nice clothes for the field trip--either a polo or a dress shirt--both is more his style.

For Kitchen it was suggested you do a self-portrait.  It didn't seem right to give my new blogging friends the mistaken impression that I spend time in the kitchen, especially not for cooking.  This is a more common scene:
(A tutorial on getting rid of glare would come in handy if any knows where to find one...)

Since I didn't do a selfie for kitchen I thought maybe for decay, but let me tell you, taking pictures of my teeth cavities is very difficult--especially if your camera won't let you take a picture if it doesn't think you have a focus lock.  (No, I didn't actually try it.)  Luckily I did not have to go far to find some wood decay:

These are only a few of the samples available in my backyard, and no, we do not have a lot of land.

"Me Time" definitely seemed the best theme to use a self-potrait.  With no tripod (well, I have a tripod, but it isn't strong enough for my new camera)  I had my husband take the picture:

The only remaining hunt item is "groups of three." If you did not notice, I have had several groups of three already, but this is definitely my favorite group of three in my life:
My three children!

Really great job with your photos this week but even more so...I love the commentary. I don't spend much time in my kitchen either. The one shot I did show is the closest to reality (me putting up dishes).
