Scavenger Hunt Sunday

We are spending this weekend with our BiL and SiL and today we visited the Science Museum...we bought the annual pass last time we were with them and must get our money's worth.  It seemed a great time to work on my Scavenger Hunt and some of the things I am learning in my photography class.  And it was.

Purple:
Okay, not that much purple...if you need more feel free to check out my recent purple post...but I like this shot and it does have purple in it.

Shapes:
The science center is full of shapes, but this is the view out the windows through the space shaped stencils at the exhibit.

Photographer's Choice:
Speaking of the view...the large picture windows from this floor led to a lot of beautiful scenes.  This photo is an experiment in using flash per my class instructions.  If I took a picture of Huckleberry without flash the scene behind him was completely blown out, so I exposed for the background and turned on the flash...first I used the ttl mode but it was a little too much.  This photo is with the flash set to its lowest setting.  I didn't sign up for this class to learn about flash, but we are spending a lot of time on it...and a lot of money since I did today order an off camera flash...which my teacher tells me will help with those pinpoint catch lights.

In Disguise:
This is me taking a picture in the mirror/window that depending on how much light you gave each side would adjust how much was reflected vs shown through.  The camera, hands, and curly hair is me...the face, glasses and straight hair is my SiL...so me in disguise.  Works for me.  The question is...does it count as a creative self-portrait for my photography class assignment? 

Food:
After the Science Museum we went out to lunch...the burrito shots are not that appetizing...so here is a picture of my drink.  Should have ordered a coke...I am very sleepy.

Have a very blessed Sunday.  We are hanging out with BiL and SiL, eating at our favorite Vietnamese restaurant, and going back home and North to witness our 16 year old niece get baptized.  I expect it will be a very good day...if a little tiring.

Your shape shot is just great. Your purple is just as great just by having the "little ones" in the shot. Thanks.
