I'm an "all or nothing" kinda gal. Once I set my resolve on something, it can become all encompassing. Hence my thankfulness that Thing #3 was away at camp this past month and I could monopolize the family computer searching various photo blogs, photo tutorials, photo sharing websites, and Bloomingdales.com (hey, a gal needs a break!)....anything for inspiration as I delve further into photography. So when I stumbled upon "Scavenger Hunt Sunday" at http://www.ashleysisk.com/ the name alone made me laugh and think "thank goodness I don't have a flagpole!" Every week Ashley posts 5 photography prompts for "Scavenger Hunt Sunday" and has invited other photographers to link up their submissions. If you are interested in checking it out, just click the "Scavenger Hunt Sunday" button in the side bar. The rules are you should attempt to take all five photos within the week, altho previous photos are allowed. Since I was late to the party this week, I had to use a couple of older photos for a few of these so I could RSVP in time. Without further adieu, here are my first attempts:
1. Walking Empty Streets
I just wasn't quite quick enough on this one! This cute couple passed by me on a Paris street, he was protecting her from the raindrops with his umbrella. As I turned to capture them from behind, I guess he felt she didn't need shelter any longer and pulled down the umbrella, yet still held her hand. Makes me wonder what types of streets they have walked down together in life, and the shelter they have provided each other thru their years together.
2. Repeating Patterns
Bryn Athyn Cathedral...I might lose my leverage in coercing trips to Europe to photograph ancient cathedrals with my husband, if I ever choose to introduce him to such a treasure so close to home!
If there is a sliver of sun to be found on the floor....my Homer will bask in it.
4. Then and Now
Oh how I love hydrangeas! Some floral buds opened "now", some floral buds closed "then"... a beautiful flower in combo of then and now.
Statuary fingertips holding a pigeon (aka...rats with wings, yuck!). But together, I LIKE "A Bird in the Hand"!
Can't wait for next weeks photo prompts!!! Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave comments.
