Scavenger Hunt Sunday (10/28/2012 edition)...

Taking a few moments between battening down the hatches, and hitting the local supermarket for "Frankenstorm" provisions to post for Scavenger Hunt. As a good friend of mine says "WHY does everyone buy eggs, milk and bread when a storm hits...do they plan on making French Toast?".  Never really thought of it that way, but it doesn't apply to me anyway because I bought wine and ice cream.  REEEEEEEALLY hoping this is just another case of the weather man getting it wrong AGAIN.  But, I think the odds of them finally getting one right MIGHT just be in their favor this time.  If ya don't see me around here for awhile, it means I've either lost power or am in a sugar induced coma from ice cream and wine overload.  In the immortal words of Danny Zuko...."Oh, Sandy!!!!!".

This week's Scavenger Hunt Sunday prompts are:  Pattern(s), Machine, Signs or Logos, Rocks or Stones, and Sparkle.



1.  Pattern(s)



A few of my Autumn decorations.



2.  Machine


"Horsepower-ed"
Lambertville, New Jersey





3.  Signs or Logos


"Do Not Take Corn"
Lambertville, New Jersey




4.  Rocks or Stones


Valley Forge, PA



5.  Sparkle


"Autumn Sparkle"
Lambertville, New Jersey



To all my friends here in the Northeast, please be careful and I hope you all survive Sandy unscathed.  Stay safe and....take photos!!!!  Maybe next week's Scavenger Hunt Sunday prompts will be:  Rain, Water, Wind Blown, Soggy, and Wine.

  4. Love that machine shot, and definitely the do not take corn! Great set, and I sure hope Sandy doesn't cause you too much trouble. I feel horrible for a friend in NY, whose husband is in his final weeks of life - on hospice - she really doesn't need this right now! You want to make sure you eat all that ice cream before the electricity goes out, it's not any fun to clean out of the freezer . . . Make sure and wave the white flag so we know you made it!! xo

  7. I'm a bit northwest of you so I'm not as near the water, but my sons live where you live and my daughter is in Norfolk, VA so I've been watch Sandy very closely. You seem to be in good spirits, albeit a bit off center (as usual). I love your spirit and the best of photography right in this space. My favorite this week is machine. It is a totally perfect picture right down to the Austalian sheep dog that is bounding up from the rear...priceless. Be safe.

  9. You always make me laugh as well as giving me some great photos to look at! Stay safe, and enjoy the wine!

  10. So funny! I always wondered why people bought things that needed to be refrigerated or frozen? If you lose power they won't last long.......I guess all the more reason to eat it at once, eh?
    This series is a great one - every.single.one.of.them!

  15. Simply love your last photo in this set. Can I just add also Kathy about those beautiful BEAUTIFUL photos in your previous post from the farm. There are too many favourites to mention and chat at length about in this short space but I just wanted to let you know that I really appreciated looking through them. Well done on joining the group, and I'm so glad that while you're respecting the other members' skills that you weren't too overwhelmed and was able to stay confident with your own style, because your 'way' with photography is impressive and noteworthy. I hope you and your family keep safe during the next few days of the uncertain weather.

  16. Geez...you can tell we are sisters just from our thoughts! It's weird how many times we are on the same wavelength! I love your machine photo....the dog running behind makes it. All of your photos highlight "Fall" perfectly.

  17. I'm buying wine too! Great minds I say. That shot from Lambertville is a real winner. Frame it, enter it in a contest...don't let it sit unused. Always enjoy seeing your images from places I used to visit. Stay dry-ha!, but do stay safe.

  18. great shots! enjoy your wine and ice cream and don't do anything silly while under the influence - like trying take photos of the storm!(unless it is from a very safe place!) Take care...
    (perhaps they would let you shelter at Bloomingdales with your ice cream and wine?)

  19. If the storm does hit, I'll head over to your place to help you out with the wine and ice cream. I wouldn't want it to spoil, ya know? Great pictures this week. I adore "sparkle" Beautiful color!

  21. Valley Forge is beautiful this time of year. As a former 10 year resident of the Philadelphia area, I always loved going there. Enjoy your provisions for the storm. I think you made great choices!

  22. I LOVE #5. Stay safe my friend. We were just south enough on the east coast of NC. It wasn't bad for us. Lots of rain and gusty winds but no flooding or wind damage.

  23. Love the single leaf in the stone shot and the many leaves in the last shot. Both are just spectacular!

  24. Love the pictures, hate the weather forcast. I'm surprised you didn't quote Bruce "Oh Sandy the aurora is risin' behind us". Not that it makes sense but it jumped in my mind. Love the machine picture with the dog running behind him. Stay safe!

  36. What a great set, one and all! I laughed about the french toast idea - I never thought of it like that. Your list does sound more fun. Mine includes toilet paper, canned soup, and doughnuts. Hope you made it through OK!
