After my little rant last week, I was surprised to find out how many agreed with my stance on the new word verification. Yet when I went to reply on their blog I found I had to type thru the gauntlet of words to post. Which made me realize that some might not realize they have word verification on their blogs. So please:
Okay...now that I got THAT over and done with, it's Scavenger Hunt Sunday time...and what a week it's been! Kinda bummed I didn't get out on too many photography adventures since last Sunday. The weather certainly cooperated, but life didn't. What did I learn this past week?
That there comes a point where you realize family togetherness might be highly overrated. I came to that conclusion Wednesday morning after watching back to back movies "Dinner with Schmucks" and the last "Harry Potter" with the Better Half and Thing #3 starting at 4 a.m. in the emergency room. Not to worry, all is well. But I'd just like to say I wish they taught doctors the concept of "efficiency" in medical school. WHY does it come innately to us moms, yet highly paid docs seem to lack that talent? Luckily the whole "family togetherness" kum-ba-yah feeling returned this weekend as Things #1 and #2 came home to see #3 perform in her children's show production of "Honk". I also learned that who needs to watch "Dinner With Schmucks" when you can just sit down at a restaurant with MY family!
So the camera got put on the back burner this week, and I had to delve into the archives for one of my prompts because I also learned...who wants to miss life while you are taking photos of it?
Handwritten letters delivered via snail mail...it's a lost art form. After trying to explain the concept of a "Pen Pal" to Thing #3, I quickly realized 900+ Facebook "friends" apparently trumps the idea of a single pen pal.
2. A Glimpse
Never a good idea to arrive early to the party...
"You Are My Sunshine"
Had to borrow one from the archives, which makes me kinda grey to admit. But I re-edited it, sooooo...maybe it makes me a lighter shade of grey?
I really like the softness, curvature, and how the tip of the leaf crosses past the stem and just peeks out the from the other side.
Planes, trains or automobiles...anything that can take me on an adventure brings me bliss.
Can't wait to see what everyone else nabbed for the prompts while I took a bit of a break. Hope you all get a chance to check out all the great submissions for Scavenger Hunt Sunday at Ramblings and Photos.
