Scavenger Hunt Sunday (2/5/12)...

Another week in the books, and another Scavenger Hunt Sunday is upon us.  Been a bit under the weather, so let's get to it.  I'd like to thank Ashley at Ramblings and Photos for Scavenger Hunt Sunday.  It was the very first link-up I joined with, and it is still my favorite over 6 months later.  For someone with a relatively short attention span...I'd consider that a long term relationship.

1.  Footwear


Like a mom who can't pick her favorite child...I was facing my own Sophie's Choice in footwear.  What would Meryl Streep do?  Then along came this little girl at our church bowling outing, skipping by in her bowling shoes.  The burden had been lifted from my shoulders, but I only had time to react and get ONE shot!  I still don't understand why they can't design bowling shoes with a bit of a heel...and in a nice nude patent leather to accentuate and elongate the leg!


2.  Strike a Pose


Homer (aka/Skipper)...in a sunspot.  Strike a pose - Vogue, Vogue, Vogue.


3.  Shiny


I love my shiny and sparkly Mercury Glass.  It started off as Christmas decor, but it has now taken up permanent residence on my mantle.


4.  Color me Green


Stems have feelings too. 


5.  Hobby

"Daydream Believer"
(self portrait #7 in 52 week project)

So MANY of my hobbies here:  Cooking, Reading Cook Books/Magazines, and....daydreaming.  But I used my MAIN hobby to capture them all.  Ya gotta "Express Yourself" hey, hey, hey, hey.



I hope you all have a relaxing Sunday.  I hear there is something called the "Super Bowl" going on today.   Personally, my idea of a "Super Bowl" is a toilet that cleans itself, but I don't think Madonna would want to perform a half-time show for that.  Would love see the Material Girl do it tho!

  12. I didn't get scavenging in time this week to take part - rats! Love the focus on the green shot (playing with new lens I would guess :O)), and the hobby one too. But I just adore the detail, comp and processing on the shot of Homer - what a gorgeous face!

  16. hee hee!! I'd love one of those Super Bowls, too ;) Thankfully, Finland doesn't tend to get as fanatic over sports...you'll get a bit of excitement over World Cup hockey, especially if it's a game against Sweden, but nothing approaching the Super Bowl frenzy in the States. Love how Homer/Skipper was so Madonna inspired ;)...and your selfie is absolutely fabulous!!!

  21. I love your composition in these shots - especially how you captured footwear.

  22. You know, Madonna....she's always looking for publicity, so don't rule that Super Bowl idea of yours out.
    I always laugh when I read you-Sophie's Choice of shoes. Love that hound pose (and Tula gets called "Skip" amongst several other things too).
    Great selfie. I think you're much more creative than I am with that. I'm going to have to step it up. Happy day.

  23. Oh my- that green shot is fabulous Kathy!

  24. Okay had my FIX of great photography and lots of smiles! I had forgotten Super Bowl Sunday..thanks a lot, now I have to worry about how loud my husband will have the TV going!! I think I might go sit in the car. Madonna, Madonna who?
    Kidding aside your photos are the best...but best of all I love the adorable bowling shoe...all bright against the black and white...clever clever...and mercury glass, isn't it the best. Your photo shows its glimmeringst !!!
    Oh, I did the scavenger hunt for the first time, but need to up the work for better photographs....smiles: sharon
