Scavenger Hunt Sunday

It is time to see how everyone interpreted last week's hunt items!  This set was really difficult for me.  I couldn't even come up with the basic, simple interpretation of the theme, let alone a secondary clever one!  So I am really looking forward to seeing what everyone else did because it is bound to expand my limited mind.

My Passion:
So dull, so trite, but still so true.  My current passion is taking pictures of my kids--not my kids--but taking pictures of them.  It is NOT their passion and very difficult to get them in a cooperative mode at the same time.
These pictures were originally taken for my attempt at "Sound of Music" but I decided to go a different route...

Sound of Music:
...once I remembered I actually have the sheet music for the Stage Musical of "The Sound of Music."  We saw it in New York in a theater on a street very near to Broadway a long, long time ago (before kids).

Inner Beauty:
That a person has inner beauty in addition to outer beauty is a pretty well-known idea so I could say that is why I chose this picture.  However, really it is because it has lots of rimmed with light (most of it cropped out) which made it very ethereal to me, but nothing says ethereal less than an 11 year old boy, but I wanted to use this photo in this hunt.  And my son, he does have a lot of inner beauty and strength and integrity and intelligence and...you get the picture (pun completely intended).

So I had to choose something else for...

Ethereal:
The Orchids were a gift from many of my friends as I passed on leadership of my MOPS group to another lady and friend.   So far I have been able to use them in two photo challenges.  They may never bloom again for me, but I am going to get those most out of these blooms.

Sharp:
That's all folks!  Be sure to check out more Sunday Scavenger Hunts over at Ramblings and Photos and Happy Hunting!

Those are beautiful catch lights in his eyes in your Inner Beauty shot!

Once all the orchid blooms have dropped off, snip the stalk about 1 centimeter from the base. Those kinds of orchids (phalaenopsis) are pretty easy to care for and will bloom again and again as long as you care for it properly. Good luck! :)

My favorites are the "sound of music" and that orchid shot. But love the processing of the kids' shots! Beautiful photos!

Miriam said...

Can I have that child please? He is simply beautiful and outshines all your other fabulous pictures :)

I love all the photos you got of your kids. I can totally relate to trying to get them to cooperate. It is like mission impossible in my house. Love Ethereal.... beautiful!

Your ethereal photo is GORGEOUS!!!!

Sarah said...

WOW! These are fantastic. I love your inner beauty and ethereal shots. Great job.

Rachelle said...

i think you did well with the interpretations! Your son has amazing eyes and his expression in the inner beauty shot is wonderful. The portraits of passion work beautifully. My kids never really want to be in pictures when I want to take them, so I get your statement - - but what you've captured in the diptych shows relationships that speak volumes.

Nessa said...

Oh the eyes in the inner beauty... stunning

Selena @ Stoneyville said...

Wow, the photo for 'Ethereal' is absolutely gorgeous! The lighting is so nice and I love that bit of lensflare!

Love the little snippets that accompanied each photo, especially My Passion. For me, fortunately, Narelle loves to be my model, but the two older siblings, totally different story.

Great shots! Love your interpretation of "Sharp", very clever!

Creative interpretations. I like the reflection on the sharp shot, and what a beautiful orchid.
