Scavenger Hunt Sunday (#11)...

The Philadelphia Phillies Edition


It's Scavenger Hunt Sunday. And I'm pretty bummed because after Friday night's loss to the Saint Louis Cardinals, this is Philly's first Sunday of the off season. My least favorite season of the year. Bah humbug! So farewell to my boys of summer. I'm not very happy with you right now my Phillies, but you know I'll always love ya!

And on to this weeks prompts which were all taken at the Phillies playoff game vs. the Saint Louis Cardinals. You'll notice I applied my shopping credo to a few of these prompts:  Can't decide?  Just get both!


1.  Landscape



The landscape of a ball game at first glance.




But upon closer inspection, THIS is the true landscape of baseball.  Little kids with big heroes and big dreams.



2.  Black and White


America's past time.




3.  Blank Space



High atop the stadium blank space.




And on the concourse blank space.  Apparently no one wanted to tread on Philly's "All-Star Shortstops".



4.  The Color Wheel:  Complementary/Triadic


In the bullpen (red/green).




On the field.  In Philly, complementary colors (red/green) are complimentary!



5.  Food




Crackerjack...of course!





And....


I HAD to throw this one in as a warning to my Better Half. If you ever even THINK of wearing this to a baseball game you are OUTTA HERE!!!!!  If you are over the age of 10, this is definitely a "What Not to Wear" moment.   Where is this guy's wife?  Probably at the bar drowning her sorrows.

  4. Oh Kathy, you knocked it out of the ball park. Sorry, couldn't resist! ; )

    These are all sooo fabulous, just when I thought I had a favorite, I scrolled and changed my mind. But I have to say the cracker-jack is just so awesome! Love that all of these are the same theme too.

    And that last one . . . ha!

  5. This is one of the things I love about this photo challenge . . . learning to see things in a different way and you have shown how a wide variety of prompts can be found in one location. Great shots all around, but I think my favourite is the crackerjacks.

  8. I may be a bigger Red Sox fan, but the Phils are my second love sine I grew up in their backyard. These pics are great - next season it's Sox-Phils series (-:

  11. I'm sad too, what to watch on tv now? Eagles and Flyers just aren't the same. But I love your theme. And my fav is the black and white of the players with the red flag. And that guy with the uniform, is just so funny.
