If you are like me and spending your day hunkered down by a fireplace, take some time to check out all the wonderful submissions to Ashley's Scavenger Hunt Sunday at "Ramblings and Photos" .
And on to the hunt:
1. Found Texture
So, my Better Half has been bugging me for a few weeks to go check out this abandoned and falling down stone structure he spotted in the woods. I don't like walking in the woods OFF a path. It takes a particular skill to do that without constantly looking down and not stumbling. I must have missed that line when God was handing out talents. All I have to say about that is SOME people are more comfortable in hiking boots, and SOME in stilettos. But I did tag along s-l-o-w-l-y and found me some wonderful texture when I had the opportunity to take my eyes off the ground.
Life is often a blur in my home. A whirlwind of teen-aged girl activity...and hormones. It's exhausting at times! So many of my friends are empty-nesters and lovin' it, but I'm not ready for that yet and embrace the madness. I love the pre-party prep activity of teen-aged girls. Brings back LOTS of memories, albeit sans "Aqua-net" and plum mascara.
My church hosted a Civil War Encampment this past week. I loved how these black lacy gloves covered this woman's hands. I just found it a bit concerning that I have a pair of fishnet stockings in my drawer that are eerily similar.
4. The Tree (Kent Weakley Tree)
I have NO IDEA what a "Kent Weakley" tree is. So I went with the tree that I've been obsessed with this past week. I promise, this the LAST time I'll post a photo from my one-on-one photo session with my diva model tree...maybe.
5. Macro/Close Up
I don't have a macro lens, actually I have NO lenses other than what is on my point and shoot camera. So these macro challenges are always a REAL challenge for me. Went for a stroll yesterday on Forbidden Drive in Philly (nope...not a red-light district as the name sounds!). And this moss on the fence rail called out to me. I'm not usually intrigued by "mossy" things, and this is about as "out doorsy" as I get. Pretty cool tho!
I want to thank everyone who have signed up to follow my little piece of the blogosphere. I mentioned to a new follower the other day that I am always surprised that anyone finds what I post (photo or writing) interesting...so when I see a new follower, or that someone took the time out of their day to visit and comment, it literally puts a smile on my face. It MIGHT even give me delusions of grandeur, haha. It is so nice to meet (in the cyber-world sense) so many interesting, fun, talented and NICE people. So from me to you a huuuuuuuuuuuge THANK YOU!
