Scavenger Hunt Sunday

There is something so satisfactory about completing a good hunt.  Even on weeks when I struggle with my photography or don't have quite the time I'd like to dedicate to the task that I would like, it feels great to hit publish and go enjoy the creativity of the other participants.  This week was busy...with lots of bad pictures taken (my photography class was a macro lab with water drops which was a lot of fun to practice as a group, but I am having no trouble deleting the pictures)...but the hunt was still oh so much fun!

Portrait:
This isn't my best portrait of Huckleberry ever, but this was taken today at the completion of his all day Lego Robotics competition.  His team did not go on to state (only 5 of 26 did) but did win the trophy for Cooperation/Core Values.  It may sound like a sympathy trophy, but it really was based on the team's demonstration that everyone played important parts, encouragement for each other, and demonstrated empathy.  We were very proud watching our boy and his teammates encourage and cheer up one discouraged teammate.

Nostalgic:

Time:
It is Christmas Time at my Sister-in-Laws house who we "dropped in" on between robotic competition rounds.  Huckleberry had to stay at the school, but thank goodness we didn't!

Full of Light:
Winter CAN be full of light when you put the low, bright sun together with some frost!

Motion:
Sunflower fell over while I was taking this shot...my husband says it was totally worth it.  She would have fallen anyway; I just might have actually witnessed it.  

I hope you had a wonderful hunt and have a most blessed of Sundays!

Cedar,

I think your shots are great as always, and kind of a coincidence, I think I have the same clock and used it in my time picture as well, but I like your composition better.
